"I'm glad I tried it."
"Ultra beginner really means Ultra. I appreciated it."
"Above all - Teresa was fantastic! I liked that the class was small (3 people) so lots of attention. Great that is was local (several days between class). The information was the same as when I took it in 2006 so it all came back to me and I feel better about my progress this time."
"Very instrumental, quite different skill."
"This is really great! I now feel confident in the water. Everything that I've learned feel integrated. The lessons about remaining in your body are applicable to other aspects of life as well."
"Being able to go slow worked well for me"
'"Would absolutely recommend."
"Great class for adults with bad experiences as its goal is to impact the whole person and not just the act of swimming."
"Slow pace, use of goggles, nose clips and a vest were very helpful for me. All that time you spend trying to lose weight, be glad you were so crappy at it, finally a few extra pounds means you can float more easily than skinny people."
"Learning in a small group setting with spotters worked well for me."
"This class was money well spent. The materials available for purchase during each class relieved a lot of stress."
"This is a great class if you are someone who is nervous about swimming. It helped me to transition from land to water. Now I start to feel the fun that water brings.:
"A must for adults who are afraid. MSA understands how that fear works and is able to articulate it to you. They get how panic feels and they let you go at your own pace to allow the panic to dissipate and to allow you to embody basic skills. I went from fear to almost fish in two days."
"It was more than I could have asked for. I would advise any non swimmer wanting to learn to take this class."
"I really enjoyed the blending of reading group discussion and pool work. The seeds were planted by the material and then allowed to take root and sprout through embodiment in the water."
