Adult Learn to Swim & Intermediate Class
Taught by veteran teacher, Zora Neuhold-Huber. This very effective system helps people overcome the unique obstacles that an adult faces when trying to feel comfortable, safe and effective in the water. This class is modeled after the popular, award winning Stanford PE swimming classes that Zora designed & taught for the past 15 years.

In this class, students will experience the unique swimming breath, body buoyancy & balance and feeling safe & effective with movements like front & back glides, front and back kick & treading water as well as the swimming strokes: Freestyle and Backstroke. The Learn to Swim course is designed for beginners with little or no water experience and the Intermediate course is for people who can swim 25-50 yards (1-2 lengths in a 25 yard pool) but become easily winded and tired due to struggling with their skills. People will be encouraged to move at their own pace.
