This foundational swim course will run once weekly for two weeks.This is a journey towards empowered, liberated, and skilled swimming for womxn of color.

Through mindfulness, meditation, and self inquiry activities, we center healing and deepening your relationship with water. No previous swim skills necessary. This class is geared towards adults of color with fear of water, but also welcomes those who already love being in water, and want to develop their skills in a safer space.
