At the Aquagym club in Dakar, Senegal, coach Ndiambé Samb and his team repair heart and pulmonary patients, stroke victims and those suffering from nerve and back problems. Word has spread about the school's sensational healing successes. Meanwhile, not only politicians and doctors, but even Islamic clerics and healers participate in the aquagym activities, which is remarkable, as Samb first had to convince the clerics to allow Muslim men and women to exercise together in the water. Now the Dolphin School can also offer classes for people who simply want to keep fit or learn how to swim.
