FUNDIVES DAHAB: A FUSION OF FUNDIVES, YOGA AND MENTAL TRAINING

Freediving is 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 my FUNDIVES I 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 me 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: THE FUSION OF FUNDIVES AND YOGA
At our fundives in Dahab we will practice units of Yin Yoga and breathing exercises before our underwater excursions. 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.

WEEKEND TRIPS TO RAS MOHAMMED & RAS ABU GALOUM: THE FUSION OF FUNDIVES, YOGA AND MENTAL TRAINING
Yoga and freediving have been a perfect complement for some time now, the fusion of fundives, yoga and mental training however is new. During our weekend excursions we go one step further and add mental training to the fusion of yoga and fundives. In a 2.5-hour workshop, you will learn various methods that are an integral part of mental training and prepare you mentally for your dives.

All in all, the combination of freediving, yoga and mental training is an extraordinary combination that still needs to be discovered. Let’s start experimenting!
