Beginners Freediving Week

Freediving is one of the most mysterious and fascinating sports around. It is essential to get professional certification when you begin to learn the techniques involved in breathhold and depth progression. However, in order to progress safely in and to enjoy the journey fully, it is also essential to learn how to relax fully and to learn to trust the deeper wisdom of your body.

This unique programme brings together the magical technology of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation with my own word-record-breaking experiences as a freediver, to help you learn about yourself and fall in love with the water element around and within you. A deep unfolding will take place.

The ocean is our greatest teacher. In freediving there are no opportunities to shy away or hide from the Truth. It is there and either we embrace, move into and through it to experience a greater, more profound and unlimited version of ourselves, or we will be blocked. This is a profound journey in every sense of the word!

More about this programme

Freediving is a metaphor for life; the way you approach your breathholds and deep diving is a direct reflection on some of your deeper subconscious patterns. Working with the water enables us to recognise, work with and release these patterns far more quickly, leading to expansion and personal freedom, It is a magical journey. If you are fascinated by pranayama practice and want to go deeper, want to understand more about yourself, the ocean and your potential, or simply want to learn how to relax in the ocean and connect with the wonder of our underwater world, join me for this truly unique and breathtaking experience.

Who is it for?

Freediving is for everyone. Some come to freediving because of their love of water, others come to resolve past fears and traumas surrounding water that they no longer want to live with. Approaching freediving through the modality and technology of yoga and meditation enables everyone to discover deeper truths about themselves as they progress at their own rate. There is no success of failure in the ocean, only learning and expansion.

This programme is open to men and women from all backgrounds, all ages, and with all levels of yoga experience (including none at all!). The programme covers five days of practice, discourses, dry and in-water freediving exercises and training, yoga and meditation, allowing time for rest, massage, desert trips and enjoying the beach life.

Continuing your journey

The key to integrating this approach to freediving into your own training is to develop a sustained meditation and yoga practice. Sara’s new online training Yoga for Freediving training programmes enable you to continue to build your mental strength and inner confidence around your regular training routines.
