– Aqua Phobia is a persistent fear of the water. A fear can be known, therefore it is declarative, as well as unknown and in that case you have no idea where the fear comes from.

Water is a natural environment for human beings but as we grown and enter into the world some people have bad experiences with the water. This creates fear memory . At Aquaskills  Swim School we work very closely with our students to unlearn what ever it was that caused them to stay away from the water. Fear can be a good thing. For instance if we knew that we could not fly, we should not jump from the window. A phobia goes beyond a fear, it is deeper, it as abnormal and persistant and can lead to obstructing a person from a wide range of experiences that could open them up to new dimensions.

Freedom from fear is liberating, as well as it is rewarding for us to watch our students transform from land to water.

Swimming is a vital skill, that can be used for exercise.Swimming can also literally save your life.

Swimming is excellent cardio work-out,it is aerobic,has amazing effects on our overall  blood circulation has we oxygenate our muscles while breathing and moving. Swimming cal eliminate toxins from your body. The intensity of the work out can alleviate depression. As we age it is an incredible exercise because of the zero impact on the joints . It is a wonderful way rehabilitate your muscles, a  way to start moving again after long bouts of sedentary living, as a result of injury after bed rest, or for people with arthritis, or MS.The cooling effects of the water as the body heat increases as we work out keeps one refreshed. We are 10% our body weight in water so if you are feeling over weight,under exercised, it is a great place to start because swimming increases your metabolism without putting any strain on your joints.
