The Water Whisperer

Welcome to the wonderful world of The Water Whisperer, where babies, kids and adults learn to swim in a creative, nurturing, and peaceful environment.  The WW teaches individuals to swim using developmental methods created by educator Emily Cohen, who has a Masters in Education from UCLA and over 20 years of experience teaching children both in and out of the water.  Not only do swimmers develop water safety skills, but they also create their own swimming style. The WW has a very high success rate getting kids 3 and up swimming in ten lessons, but they start with babies as young as 5 months. Teachers are all CPR certified. The WW specializes in children who fear water. Swim in a heated, saline pool. Go www.thewaterwhisperer.com.  Read the testimonials! Watch the videos!
