Oshun Swim School offers marginalized groups a safer space to explore our relationship with water and grow into embodied, joyful swimmers!

BI-POC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) folks face barriers to physically and emotionally safe swim environments and are up to 3 times as like to drown. Oshun Swim works to not only close this gap, but to create culturally rich, deeply meaningful opportunities to heal our relationship to water.  We explore how water relates to our experiences, our families and cultures, our ancestors, our stories as womxn and non-binary people. It is an invitation to explore growth without pushing ourselves past our limits, to listen and respond to our bodies. It’s about healing, joy, and trust. 

Oshun is the Orisha (West African Yoruba deity) of rivers and lakes. She represents pleasure, healing, and all of the things that make life worth living. Despite personal, generational, and historic traumas, our experience with water can be an experience of Oshun.

Through beginner swim classes and workshops that range from spa sound baths, to live music infused mindfulness swims, OSS provides spaces to move towards a deeper, more embodied experience of water.  

By becoming a Matron/Patron (Baetron!) and offering a monthly contribution (starting at just $3/month), you help keep classes and workshops sliding scale and accessible to folks of all income levels.  Your support makes it possible to dream bigger!  You also get to be part of the journey through photos, updates, testimonials, poetry, and tools for connecting with water on a deeper level.  Thank you for joining me.

Our goal of 15 patrons by the end of summer has already been surpassed and it's only July!!!!!!  A thank you is on the way to each of you lovely Baetrons. 

To reach even higher heights, we are setting a new goal of reaching $500 in monthly contributions by 2020!  A special gift will be sent to each Baetron to celebrate when we reach this goal :D
