Discover you Breath and Learn how to Hold it

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

Deep Zen Meditation and Freediving course "Discover your Breath" is a half day session during which you will do a first step into the discovery of new ways of breathing and into your abilities to hold your breath with the close guidance of the zen monk Kosho.

 

This course is specifically designed to be given on dry land only. I can also, upon request, be followed online.

The course starts with a little bit of theory about circulatory and respiratory systems. What are 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.

 

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 time.

 

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.

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

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

 

AIDA Freediving Course - Level 1 star

The very first step into Freediving 

This course is the perfect introduction to what freediving is. During this day, you will get in touch with a bit of theory about diving and respiratory 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 (on dry land) . The results are always impressive and everybody gets overwhelmed by 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 light lunch break (always better to be empty stomach once diving) 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.


This course does not feature an exam nor ask for specific achievements. Of course, you must be able to swim easily and feel comfortable with mask and snorkel.

It can be tough for some people, but your instructor is here with you to take the needed time to correct and share the secrets. Everyone can do it, this is certain.


There are some theory classes featured, safety skills to learn in order to become also a good buddy, an exam to go through and the necessary amount of confined and open water sessions for you to become a real freediver. 


The theory classes are mainly about general aspects of freediving, human physiology and some important laws of physics that every freediver must know. We'll get in the pool to practice static breatholds and dynamic freediving. This way only we will be ready to dive at depth safely and to enjoy the underwater beauty and calm.


To make sure you have time also to relax and integrate, this level is proposed in 2 or 3 days at your convenience. Make it fast or take it full and easy is up to you. No one will push you to achievements...  success is yours!


AIDA level 2 stars is certainly one of the most improved and given freediving course in the world. By following this course, your knowledge about how our body breathe and lives underwater and at surface will be greatly increased. The vision you have on yourself will be changed. Everyone gets out of it happy and impressed, AIDA level 2 stars is a must try...

AIDA Freediving Course - Level 3 stars

Become an independant Freediver by learning advanced skills

With the level 3 stars of AIDA international education system, the goal is to become an advanced and more independent freediver. But watch out! independent does not mean to dive alone... After that course, you will be able to safely manage with any experienced buddy some "on your own" training sessions. Got it? Certainly never dive alone.


Obviously during this level we will go deeper and longer. More safety skills also are to be acquired and demonstrated, since safety will always be the most important aspect to consider during your freediving career. The theory classes will also get more precise, deeper in the subject and your understanding of the science underlying freediving will definitely become more accurate.


Same way than for the AIDA level 2 stars, you can do this course in 3 or 4 days. 3 days are generally enough but it can be nice to profit of an extra day to do some more dives or breathold max attempts to integrate that new knowledge and skills of yours. Feel free to choose.
