What's special about the TISS?

Our Endless Pool is the ideal swim instruction setting, providing you with:
Personalized instruction. We put a laser focus on your main opportunities for improvement and find the fastest, simplest way to make them work for you.

Trial and success (not trial and error)
. In the TISS, your coach is inches away giving verbal and manual feedback and adjusting position, direction and timing stroke by stroke. Never a wasted stroke.

Real-time Feedback. The pool-bottom mirrors and current let you know moment-by-moment how you're doing. When you improve your body position or alignment, you feel it immediately because it's immediately easier to hold your place over the mirror. Use the mirror to check position, orientation or timing of any aspect of your stroke. Then watch a frame-by-frame underwater and surface replay on a 42-inch monitor.

No Distractions. No walls, No laps to count. No other swimmers. In the TISS, your learning experience is distilled to you, the water and how your movements look and feel. When you concentrate on things that really matter you learn much faster – and enjoy the process.


What happens during a single Total Immersion lesson?

In one session, you will have your form analyzed by a TI Coach via video playback, be introduced to some basic principles of Total Immersion based on your skill level, and learn to experience, understand, and enjoy the water in new ways.

What can I expect from a series of TI Swim Studio swim lessons or a workshop?

When you commit to a series of lessons, you will learn to approach your swimming with an attitude and expectation of continuous improvement through the introduction of new skills, drills and focal points at each session. Starting with balance, streamlining, and rotation and working your way through stroke development and speed, lessons are hand-tailored to move at your pace and meet your needs.

Private Instruction or Semi-Private Instruction?

Private instruction allows you to work at your own pace with maximum scheduling flexibility. This is good option for those who have busy schedules, personal needs, or are on a faster track for learning.

Semi-private lessons allow you to enjoy instruction with a friend or relative at a reduced rate. All students taking lessons together should have similar goals and comfort level in the water. We get requests for swim partners in the summer, so if you want to take semi-privates but don’t have a partner, we can put you on a call/email list to let you know if a potential partner is available.

** Instruction now available by appointment, 7:00am - 8pm, 7 days / week!
