Mwana Swim School

Mwana Swim School Swimming instructor is myself, Mary Snook with my son, Tom as an assistant. Combined we take classes of no more than 5 children at a time. Essentially the pool is indoors as we have built a roof over it and have canvas windows round the sides, it is also heated which keeps the water at a balmy 29 degrees celsius.

This means we are able to swim in poor weather conditions. A little bit about myself: Zimbabwe, Alberta Canada and UK Qualified Swimming Instructor Over 30 years of teaching experience working here in Zimbabwe and in the United Kingdom. Over and above my qualifications and experience is the love I have for working with children, as both a mother and grandmother I fully appreciate the importance of educating our children and giving them the best opportunities we can so that they might live a healthy and happy life.

Mission: I believe that swimming is an invaluable life skill, one that can bring so much joy whilst also enabling safety in and around water. At Mwana Swim School, we aim to impart children with the basic knowledge, skills and confidence so that swimming can become a routine and fun pat of their lives.

8 Simple Practices to Transform Energy
1. Breathe

Breathing is one of the simplest ways to transform energy. When you are in a state of reaction, your breathing becomes shallow. By breathing deeply, you naturally transform your reactive state.

2. Set an Intention

When you feel upset, just say the following statement to yourself: “I need to express how I am feeling right now, and I ask that the energy of my feelings be transformed into love and light so I am feeding the world with love.”

3. Think of a Precious Image

The energy behind your emotions goes out to all living beings. If confronted by someone who evokes strong emotions, think of a loved one and impose his or her image on the face of the person challenging you. For example, you might work with the face of a baby kitten, puppy, or your favorite flower. What thoughts do you want to send to those you love?

4. Use the Power of Words

Spiritual traditions teach that words are vibration and the words we use affect our lives. As children many of us used the phrase “abracadabra.” This is actually an Aramaic phrase “Abraq ad habra” and means, “I will create as I speak.” Use words throughout the day which remind you of the energy of love.

5. Be Grateful

Think about what you are grateful for. Being grateful always transforms your current state of consciousness.

6. Project Strength

Don’t pity others whom you perceive as suffering — this only pushes them deeper into a hole. When you see people in their divine light and perfection you help give them the strength they need to deal with their troubles.

7. Connect with Nature

Water can wash away your pain. As you wash, visualize negative energy flowing from you and being transformed into light. As you stand in the wind, imagine the wind carrying what needs to be released and being transformed into light. Light a candle and imagine the fire transmuting your intense feelings. Or you can bury your troubles in the earth with the intention that the energy be transformed to love.

8. Surround Yourself in Light

If you feel someone is being energetically hostile toward you, imagine a protective light surrounding you. Some people think of being surrounded by white light. I imagine being enclosed in a translucent blue egg. Find a color that works for you.

Water Safety
Drowning is the greatest cause of accidental death in children under the age of 5 in Australia. On average, 1 child drowns each week. Similar statistics can be seen world wide. Water safety is the responsibility of all adults caring for children. Children must never be left unsupervised in or around water. Laurie Lawrence’s, drowning prevention campaign, “Kids Alive”, stresses the importance of;
1. Fence the pool,
2. Shut the gate,
3. Learn to swim,
4. Supervise,
5. Learn resuscitation


Just a reminder folks:

No lessons next week, we will see you in the pool from the 28th of Feb which will be the start our next 5 week block until the 1st of April.

Wishing everyone a wonderful and relaxing half term!
