Best training in NYC Metro Area! Here is an email we received we will keep the names anonymous!

Lori, hi!
You called me last month re: swim lessons. I am interested in taking lessons with you or school.
I am 44 years old. I have tried to learn to swim when I was 20 and most recently in Nov. – March with Asphalt Green.

I was not successful. I spent a great deal of money with them. The instructor ignored my requests to teach me to float and not once did he enter the water with me. I was never comfortable enough to freely allow my body to swim as I am not comfprtable not having terra firma immediately beneath me. Yes, I am afraid to drown, but I am not afraid of water. In fact, I love water and I want to learn to snorkel and dive eventually. I cannot do this without learning to be comfortable in water and being able to swim.

I only have until July 5th to be in the country, and then I will be away.

Do you have a technique that will serve an indivudual with my needs?

I was not able to go to the special classes offered by Melon. Are you familiar with her school? Her school specifically targets individuals with my needs. Again, I can’t make it to her classes, but I believe I need lessons with her approach. (*Although our approach has been more recently touted by the press as the Way to go!!!! *)Our classes are flexible and easy to enroll in.

Swimming is a life long and necessary skill I need. I hope you can accomodate me in your program.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.


p.s. Is it possible to schedule 2 classes per week for the six classes?

No problem we can create your own schedule!!!

Our Philosophy

One acquires discipline, coordination, balance and harmony while swimming. Moving in the water is like sculpting and dancing as well as a meditation. We believe in an individualistic approach that comes with intuition as well as skillful instruction. Swimming is a life skill that will not only make a child or adult safe in the water, but will open doors to a plethora of outdoor water sports from sailing to scuba diving, and doing it safely. We are confident that everyone can learn to swim and its all about the creative approach of the instructors, but fear not everyone is possible to teach, and where there is a will there is a way.
