BEFORE CONSIDERING TO FREEDIVE OR TO ENROLL FOR A FREEDIVING COURSE

Freediving is an incredible sport and the experience of depth while holding your breath is a life experience. The practice of pranayama and meditation, the pool exercises and stretching sessions will without doubt be amazing moments too. But you must understand that, like any other sports, freediving has its own risks.


Despite insurances and all safety measures that your instructor will take, his strong and recognised rescue skills, freediving remains a dangerous activity. To follow a course, you are expected to be in good fitness condition, to be a good swimmer and to be accustomed to snorkeling.

All courses, lessons, sessions of practice are featuring some paperworks. You will be asked to sign an assumption of risks and liability release document and to answer and sign a medical statement.

 

You may have to visit a doctor before to freedive. Please do if you have any doubts about your fitness condition.

Discover you Breath and Learn how to Hold it

Freediving courses in Sharm el Sheikh, Dahab and Worldwide

An incredible discovery of how to relax and breathe in order to achieve long breathols

1D0E6043-8A11-46CE-A9B2-16E0E0F59A3B.jpe

Deep Zen Meditation and Freediving course "Discover your Breath" is a half day session during which you will discover new ways of breathing and start training your ability to hold your breath.

 

This course is specifically designed to be given on dry land only. It can also, upon request, be followed online (2 persons are then required).

The course starts with a little bit of theory about circulatory and respiratory systems. What are diaphragmatic contractions, what is the urge to breath, how to prepare a breathold and recover from it... All this is very important so you know what actually happens during a breathold. It's improving and deepening, i really advice you try this course if you've never gone into pranayama and breathold.

 

Then we'll switch to more practical exercises: you will prepare, perform, manage and recover from a breathold. Get through a warm up serie and try a maximal attempt with the help of the monk Kosho who will closely monitor you at all times.

 

Once relaxed, focused and ready, eventually helped by the smooth and relaxing coaching voice of your instructor you'll be able to hold your breath for long... actually much longer than you imagine. Most Deep Zen students are able to achieve a breathold that lasts more than 2 min 30 during their first maximum attempt.

A very nice, instructive and entertaining course for the beginners and the complete newbies. Designed for everyone, you don't need to specifically be attracted by freediving in the water. If you feel more like discovering what kind of mindsets exist beyond breathing and into the exercise of breathold , this course has been completely thought for you.

Warmly advised to anyone. Suitable for children.

DURATION OF THE COURSE: around 3 hours

1 THEORY SESSION - 1 DRY STATIC SESSION

PRICE: 50 euros per person

INSTRUCTOR / STUDENTS RATIO: 3 students maximum (for bigger groups, please contact the monk Kosho)

LOCATION: Usually Sharm el Sheikh but also upon request, Dahab, Nabq and anywhere in the world

REQUIREMENTS: to be in good both physical and mental fitness

DRY LAND COURSE, CAN BE FOLLOWED ONLINE (2 PERSONS)

The very first step into Freediving 

07-6-19-1133.jpg

This course is the perfect introduction to what freediving is. During this day, or these two half days, you will get in touch with a bit of theory about freediving and about human physiology. Then we'll do some specific breathing and relaxation exercises in order for you to perform your first breatholds in a zen and easy way  (iusually on dry land) . The results are always impressive and everybody gets enthusiastic about their own abilities. It's really great to realise how long one can hold his/her breath when doing it the right way.

 

After that, we'll have a break and we'll just pass through the important theory about equalisation... then we'll go in the water for some dives at a maximum depth of around 10m. You will never be pushed, just positively empowered and closely guided in this new experience of yours.
