STA swim school
As of April 2022 all guidelines for COVID -19 were removed by the STA after following the government decision.
We are still following the guidelines that the school requests that we hire from.
Many thanks for your understanding

A: See Water time together for full explainations.
Q: When can I start Aqua Natal Yoga?
