Mili learns to Siwm

I had tried learning to swim a dozen times but each time my heart jumped. It  was indescribably exhausting and unpleasant.

When I got the call from Tiffany to start swimming lessons with her company, Splash Aquademy the nerves crept up but with nerves, a quiet resolve to challenge myself, face my fears and go into the deep end literally and figuratively.

And so my swimming journey began…


I walked into a very chilled out spa with an enclosed pool and I saw a toddler taking lessons. I thought to myself, “If this toddler isn’t dying here right now then I probably will be ok”. Guys and girls, I am happy to announce that it was actually amazing.

Tiffany was gentle, patient and more importantly super professional. She eased all the fears that I might have had about drowning and taught me different ways of swimming, breathing underwater, pushing myself and being faster in my paddling.

At the end of the 1-hour session I was exhausted but so fulfilled to have faced my fear of swimming and actually swimming not floating or holding on to walls :).

There is still lots to be learned but I am honestly so excited about this journey and looking forward to the next three sessions with her.
