YOGA 

We will have a yoga instructor on site during the trip that will offer sunset yoga for four days out of the week there. Take one or all four sessions and feel better and more relaxed. Heal your body and mind with Pranayama and Asana yoga practices. 

 

Keep your mind focused in the present moment and respond with control. Let us integrate Yoga into your dive, to not only feel more confident and at ease, but to make the experience more vivid and meaningful.

 

Yoga is an ancient practice that uses gentle physical postures (Asanas), and breathing practices (Pranayama), relaxation techniques to promote a healthy body, encourage a calm and composed mind, and create a foundation for heightened awareness and a peaceful state of being.

 

The physical postures in Yoga help strengthen and limber the body, which reduces the risk of injuries, as well as prevents over-exertion, which can lead to breathlessness and anxiety. Being in better shape makes diving less strenuous, and therefore more safe and enjoyable.

 

The Pranayama breathing techniques practiced in our Yoga sessions encourage the body to use full capacity of the lungs and absorb and use oxygen more efficiently. Slow, controlled breathing facilitates a relaxed body and mind, improves air consumption, and can be used as a tool to fine tune your buoyancy.

 

Please note that there is a charge for each yoga session.
