If you are limited in time or just want to get some new experience with us, feel free to choose and take any of them with our team.
Static Apnea Workshop
During this half-day workshop, we will practice static apnea, where you will discover that your body can suspend respiration for several minutes without panic and stress. You will learn how to extend your breath-hold abilities and performance beyond your imagination.
We will cover the physiology and psychology of breath-holding, mammalian dive response, proper warm-ups for static apnea, special stretching routine, advanced breathing techniques which will help you to be more comfortable and increase your breath-hold performance.
Practicing static apnea in the correct way is a tool that will increase your performance in freediving, level of comfort, and relaxation in any freediving discipline.
Surf Survival Workshop
This is a half-day surf survival workshop designed especially for surfers to develop confidence and understanding of breath-holding while surfing.
The main goal of this class is to exercise and to improve your skills and body abilities when surfing on the waves as well as develop more confidence and understanding of the physiology and psychology of breath-holding.
The first 2 hours you will spend in the classroom to get proper knowledge about the psychological aspects of the breathing process, breath-holding, relaxation, and minimization of efforts while being underwater.
Then you will move to the pool to perform static apnea and specific surfer’s exercises. During your practice in the pool, we will simulate wipe-outs, develop self-confidence, change your mental state, and relations with wipe-outs and breath-hold during them.
Watsu and Aguahara Sessions
Watsu is a relaxation and massage technique in water that could be useful for everyone for total relaxation and to release tension. It is an amazing chance to take rest and go into deep relaxation while being held by water and the therapist.
For those who have irrational fears and hydrophobia, it is a chance to connect with water in a new gentle way, it helps to release your fears and your negative experience.
This technique is very useful for divers to extend your relaxation limits and improve the quality of relaxation. Watsu helps develop a very important skill for freedivers — to relax muscles that are not active at the moment.
