Holistic Swim Co.'s Mission
Our mission is to educate and prepare swimmers of all skill levels for the application of safe habits in aquatic environments.
Coach Angel is a professional swim instructor based in New York City, certified in Water Safety Instruction and Lifeguard Instruction.
Angel's interest in education stems from his love for learning and helping others to learn. This led him to pursue a career in health and physical education. His passion for aquatics came later in life as a result of a life-threatening, and ultimately life-changing, experience. In that moment he decided to enroll in swimming lessons.
It was during those swimming lessons that Angel experienced a new level of appreciation for the education process. As a result of all of these events, he decided to share the joy of overcoming the challenges that arise when learning a new skill like swimming while educating them about the safety measures required for a fun and enjoyable aquatic experience.
