Explore freediving in a playful, fun and extraordinary way!
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 up. In order to do that we also integrate other disciplines as journaling and yoga. Practicing certain yoga postures to stretch the breathing muscles, some breathing exercises from yoga and the deep relaxation method Yoga Nidra prepare our body and mind for freediving so that we are much more relaxed. Journaling, on the other hand, helps us reflect on our experiences in the water and prepare ourselves better for future fundives.
See what we have to offer:
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, depends on the level of the freedivers.
DAY BOAT TRIPS TO GABR EL BINT: FUNDIVES + JOURNALING

2 DAYS TRIPS TO RAS MOHAMMED & RAS ABU GALOUM:
FUNDIVES + JOURNALING + YOGA
During our weekend trips we will combine journaling, freediving and yoga. Yoga and freediving have been a perfect complement for some time now. In Yoga we become more sensitive in our body perception which becomes an advantage for us in the water. Additionally specially in Yin Yoga the deeper fascia are stretched which leads to an exceptionally intense relaxation. This allows us to be much calmer during our fundives. 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. The journaling, specially morning pages which are highly recommended for freedivers clearify the mind and also can be used to establish more awareness of what is actually happening in the water freediving.
RETREATS IN DAHAB: A FUTURE PROJECT!!!
It’s always good to have goals. A dream is to offer retreats on the subject of stress management in the future. A combination of theoretical and practical units is conceivable, whereby in theory the work is carried out in an analytical, cognitive and in practice in a physical way. Fingers crossed for this project to hopefully develop! All in all, the combination of freediving, journaling and yoga is an extraordinary combination that still needs to be discovered. Let’s start experimenting!
