I am excited to announce a new class in partnership with the Lifelong Learning department of the University of Utah: Mermaid Swimming and Diving. This is the first mermaid community education course of it's kind!
"Join one of Utah’s foremost mermaiding experts for a mind-body experience that gives technical skills, an imaginative playground and physical exercise that is unparalleled! You will start in the classroom and learn the basics of mermaid swimming with a monofin and freediving. You’ll then split into small groups for a pool session where you will practice stretches, self-rescue skills, the basics of safe breath-hold techniques, weighting, surface diving, how to enter and exit the water, and how to float. Mermaiding is for everyone no matter your gender, shape, background, or age – it’s never too late to transform into a mermaid!
As an educator, it is important to bring access to mermaiding to the community at large. I believe everyone should have opportunity to experience the joy and freedom mermaiding can bring. In addition, I want to spread the message of conservation and stewardship as far and wide as possible. This course helps me accomplish that goal.
Registration for this special course opens on June 21st, and has limited enrollment. Find the details here.
