This is a journey towards empowered, liberated, and skilled swimming for womxn and nonbinary people of color.  We will build skills around breathing, understanding your body in relationship with water, floating, body alignment, and the beginnings of stroke development.  Through mindfulness, meditation, and self inquiry activities, we center healing and deepening your relationship with water.
