There is no one I would rather be in the water with than Gary Woods and Ed Hayes. If you are found them, you are fortunate. They bring every ounce of strength, heart, passion and expertise to the table every time.
You can train and you will experience, and you can be present for all of it for good or bad. The inner journey from the water calling us towards ourselves is unending.
These men have heard that call, and have had the courage to drop their egos, listen and learn. This is what informs their teaching. They will make you examine everything you thought you knew, and finally face yourself to bring your training to the next level. When you realize this gift, which will not always feel natural nor easy, you will feel grateful.
If you want to learn to dive, be humble, leave your baggage, and be open. Ed and Gary walk the walk, and have the generous hearts of true teachers.
