This ground-breaking training week is designed to lay the strongest foundations to every freediver’s training and performance. It is all about finding relaxation and enjoyment in the water, which is essential whether you are a recreational diver, or intend to train seriously for depth increase. Being calm in the water - and knowing how to create that state in your mind and body every time - is the most important part of making a successful and beautiful dive.

More about this programme

The Yoga for Freediving week presents the core of Sara’s teachings – freediving as a spiritual path and practice. Sara will walk you through her own journey from beginner to 104m, and demonstrate how using yogic techniques and spiritual philosophy will take you into the space where the magic happens; where you can let go, completely relax and experience the bliss of oneness with the ocean.

Who is it for?

This week is open to freedivers of all levels with a minimum basic certification level. Complete beginners are welcome to join if they complete an AIDA 2 star programme with one of our affiliate instructors the week before. See below for more information for beginners.

Continuing your journey

Accommodation

We recommend Coral Coast Hotel as your home for the workshop. Relax and soak up the energy of the Red Sea in one of the beautiful sea-view superior rooms at the hotel that is the host for our yoga workshops. The hotel is set directly on the beach at Eel Garden: the quiet, peaceful and ‘authentic’ end of Dahab. With stunning views of sunrise over the Red Sea and breakfast in the restaurant or palm Arisha on the beach. It is relaxation, pure and simple.

Yoga and meditation sessions are held in the hotel’s stunning yoga room. Between sessions, enjoy the sun loungers and hammocks on the beach, or relax in the pool, or simply chill out with your book and a healthy fresh juice in the restaurant.
