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!
