Total Immersion Swimming Philosophy

Transform Your Technique



Traditional instruction focuses on pulling, kicking and endless laps. Total Immersion teaches you to swim with the effortless grace of fish by becoming one with the water. Total Immersion emphasizes the same patient precision and refinement taught by martial arts masters. We start with simple skills and movements and progress by small, easily-mastered steps. Our students thrive on the attention to detail and the logical sequence of progressive skills.

Transform Your Experience

Swimmers come to us with the goal of swimming faster. They quickly learn that it’s far more beneficial and satisfying to swim with grace, flow, and economy…and that speed will surely follow when they master ease. You’ll feel the difference from your very first lap of intelligent, purposeful Total Immersion practice and get more satisfaction from every lap that follows.

Transform Yourself

SuzSwimCoronadoTotal Immersion, alone among all swimming-improvement programs, teaches swimming as a practice — in the same mindful spirit as yoga or tai chi. Our students tell us that by swimming the Total Immersion way they sharpen the mind-body connection and achieve heightened self-awareness and self-mastery, leading to greater physical and mental well-being.
