…EXPLORE THE FUSION OF FUNDIVES & YOGA
Freedivingis a big challenge for many people because deep dives and breath-holds are mentally demanding. Some people also struggle with the very strong idea of competition, which can lead to blockages and discomfort and, in the worst case, to freedivers not diving at all anymore. With our fundives we want to start right there and promote the fun factor of freediving without pressure to perform and outside of a course system. It is important to us that we get to know ourselves better in the water, perceive ourselves with everything that may come, in order to ultimately accept who we are and what we bring with us.
HALF DAY TRIPS IN DAHAB: FUNDIVES
At our fundives in Dahab we focus on basic skills we need to freedive in a confident and safe way. Before each dive we will do both very specific physical exercises to stretch and prepare our body and a theoretical topic about freediving from AIDA 2 or AIDA 3 manuals, depends on the level of the freedivers.
WEEKEND TRIPS TO RAS MOHAMMED & RAS ABU GALOUM:
FUNDIVES & YOGA
Yoga and freediving have been a perfect complement for some time now. During our weekend excursions we will combine fundives with yoga, more precisely Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra and pranayama which means breathing exercises. In Yin Yoga we become more sensitive in our body perception which becomes an advantage for us in the water. Additionally the deeper fascia are stretched which leads to an exceptionally intense relaxation. This allows us to be much calmer during our dives. In addition to the postures and stretching, breathing exercises are another component of hatha yoga and quite exciting for freedivers. They are used in yoga to bring body and mind together and can go a long way in helping to calm and focus the mind. Yoga Nidra is a method of deep relaxation and also a great tool to establish in daily routine of freedivers.
