Bernadette’s Swim Story
Bernadette McBeigh (Bernie) is an inspiration to anyone who wants to learn how to swim! Bernie has just finished her second term of lessons and in that time has transitioned from a person with knees knocking with fear on week one to a place now where Bernie “wakes up on Wednesdays and all I can think about is swimming”.
Bernie’s learning to swim story started while watching her friend paddle around in a hotel pool and knew she wanted to be able to join her on future trips. On her return she searched online and found Aura De Paul and called up to enquire about adult lessons. Bernie describes the fear she felt on her first week which was quickly overcome with the encouragement she received from teachers Lucy, Ian and Mark.
“On week one I stood there holding the bar and I didn’t think I would be able to let go but now I am flying. I can put my face in the water and I can even float on my back. I could float for hours, it is so relaxing”.
Bernie speaks the support and encouragement she gets from the Aura staff and also her work colleagues that drives her to succeed. Of course she is signed up for the next term of lessons!
