"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."

William Butler Yeats 

Several years ago we had a dream about a school, an exceptional school of aqua fitness. One in which we would have been able to focus solely on the various forms of training and working with the body in the aquatic environment. Where we would have been able to present all kind of topics on various levels. We wanted to show others the unusual properties of water and training methods, help to discover water over and over again. In 2010 a special training program was developed, which has gained the recognition of many trainers from different parts of the world. This is how SAF AQUA® was created. We focused on conscious body work, various forms of physical activity in water, as well as the theory and methodology of training at different stages of sports training. Later, there were other objectives that we still pursue today. Meantime, we have trained thousands of instructors and tried to infect them with our passion. Every day we discover water again and create new training programs.

"Water is the driving force of all nature."

Leonardo da Vinci  

Imagine an extraordinary training room, thanks to which Your slightest movement will engage many muscle groups. A training room that makes the work done with resistance, and each exercise boosts calories burning increasingly. Imagine a place that is very safe for Your joints, which creates excellent conditions for learning neuromuscular communication. Such a place is within reach. Water is an incredible medium that supports training, intensifies the effort and muscles work, as well as forgives many errors. With SAF AQUA ® you will learn about the opportunities created by water, you will understand how the body works and reacts in this wonderful environment. We will take You on an amazing journey and show You our unique training programs.

 

"Children see magic because they look for it.""

Christopher Moore  

Water is a truly unique environment. It allows us to work safely with clients of all ages. We have had contact with it from the very beginning of our existence. After birth, our world changes dramatically, but thanks to the miraculous properties of water and various techniques of working with the body, we can restore a part of this magic. Thanks to the activities of familiarizing children with water, we adapt them to the aquatic environment, we adapt their visual, auditory and tactile receptors to the different conditions under which the acquisition of new motor skills happens. Exercises in water have an extremely positive effect on the physical development of children of all ages. However, an important role in this journey belongs to the trainer. It is him who manages the activities and chooses games and exercises respectively. Properly conducted lesson of swimming requires good knowledge of the students, that is to say, children under our care, influence, impact. This knowledge should pertain to the somatic as well as psychomotor side, together with the knowledge of the changes occurring in the body under the influence of specific exercises that take into account the development and mobility of young children. This is why during the instructors’ training, SAF AQUA® team puts very high emphasis on acquisition of these elements by the trainees.
