OPENS IN MAY IN A NEW WOODLAND HILLS LOCATION AND OPENED MARCH 1st in SHERMAN OAKS! Last summer, Emily and her team helped my then 4 yr olds, who were very afraid of the water, get excited about being in the water/swimming in just 10 lessons. Not only do swimmers develop water safety skills, but they also create their own swimming style. The Water Whisperer is where babies, children and adults learn to swim in a creative, nurturing and peaceful environment. They teach individuals to swim using gentle, developmental methods tailored to each person. They have a 98% success rate in getting children ages 3 & over swimming within ten lessons. The technique was developed by a Jen’s List member, Emily Cohen, who has a Masters Degree in Education from UCLA as well as years of experience teaching children both in and out of the water.  The W.W. is a proud member of The United States Swim School Association!  The Water Whisperer keeps current with all of the Association’s swim teaching techniques. They recently expanded to Woodland Hills!  Spots are filling up quickly in both locations. Contact for Sherman Oaks location and Courtney at for Woodland Hills!  WATCH THE VIDEOS, READ THE TESTIMONIALS and register at
