SmartFish Mehtod Parent Tot Name Introduction Song, by Miss Karen

THANK YOU TO MISS CRYSTAL FOR THIS NEW IDEA….
* Use the melody for “Frère Jacques”
* This can replace “The Kids In The Pool” song … (the one using the melody of “Wheels On The Bus”)
* “Where is _________ Where is ________ ? There she is. There she is. Splashy, splashy, splashy. Kickie, Kickie, Kickie… Up and down. Up and down.”
* For the babies who allow the teacher to touch them, the teacher can help them to splash their hands and kick their feet.
* From about 11 months or so, babies like to point, so explain to the parents that the idea of pointing is a natural behavior that can be encouraged.
* This is also a good way to learn the names of the students. Ask parents to repeat their child’s name throughout the class, as you come around to help them teach.
* NEXT SEGMENT: Submersion Instruction & Practice
* NOTE: Before taking a baby under the water, ask the new parent if their child has ever experienced water washing over the face in the bath or shower. If not… the child is not yet ready for submersion in the lesson. Use the pitcher to pour water over the back of head and maybe over the face.
* Homework for new babies who have never experienced water over the face: practice pouring water over the face during bath time before returning the next week.

Yoga Asanas (Poses) To Swim Better

Yoga exercises and meditation help reduce negative stress, provide both physical and mental strength, and also improve your body flexibility and ability to recover efficiently. All of these benefits also help to improve your swimming performance. As a swim instructor in Watersafe Swim School, I do practice yoga 4-5 days a week.

There is absolutely no doubt that swimming, and swimming fast, requires several different skills and attributes. Flexibility, core strength and focus are some key points for optimizing the performance as a swimmer, and all of these attributes do improve by practicing regular yoga.

 Here are some yoga exercises to improve your mental and physical faculties so that you can reach next higher level of swimming performance. If you want to boost your ability to recover, be stress free and be a more flexible athlete, then practice the below mentioned yoga exercises regularly:

1. Cat-Cow Stretch (Chakravakrasana): Cat-Cow Stretch is a classic yoga asana and for good reason. It improves abdominal strength and spinal flexibility. It does wonders for lower, middle and upper back stiffness.

2. Shoulder Stretch: This yoga asana increases the flexibility of your shoulder muscles and augment range of your shoulder movements. It improves your body posture, lung functioning and blood flow in the area.

3. Dhanurasana (Bow Pose): Dhanurasana consists of two words. Dhanu means ‘bow’ and Asana means yoga poses. Bow pose is my favorite because it is good for heart and kidney. It is also helpful for blood cleansing and weight loss.

4. Setu Bandhasana (Bridge Pose): Bridge Pose opens the chest, heart, and shoulders. It stretches the chest, the back of the neck, spine and the hips. Bridge Pose also calms the brain, reducing anxiety, backache, headache, stress and depression. It is helpful in asthma, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and sinusitis.
