Mallorca Freediving Week 2017

Join us for an unforgettable week of freediving, yoga and fun in the beautiful bay of Port de Pollença – Northern Mallorca. Our freediving week kicks off on Monday the 25th of September and ends Friday night the 29th.

The 5 day freediving week is hosted by PJ Freedive, @LydieYoga and Actionsport Mallorca and is packed with training and fun for all levels of certified freedivers. A minimum of the following will be available for you throughout the week.

Four Half Day freediving boat trips

Our popular half day trips in Pollença Bay are combo trips where we start with one coached line diving session, working on feeling, technique and fun. After a short break on the boat we finish with a guided fun dive session exploring the stunning drop offs, caves and caverns of our local bay. Typical dive time 2 x 60 min.

Two Coached Static Sessions

You will work with our highly experienced Instructor Trainer Per Jennische to improve your maximum breath-hold, relaxation, CO2 tolerance or other aspects of static breath-holds that you would like to work on.

Safety Drills

Safety is on top of our agenda and we will make sure that we all get a refresher on safety practices and drills to make sure that we have each others backs at all times.

Four Yoga Sessions

Yoga offers numerous benefits for freedivers in terms of focus, relaxation, breath control and flexibility. You will be guided through 4 yoga classes specially designed for freedivers by our highly experienced yoga teacher and freediver Lydie Ruiz.

One Stretching for Freediving Workshop

The Thoracic Stretching work shop will either introduce you to the practice or teach you new approaches, depending on your experience level.

One Dive Technique Video Analysis

Video analysis is a great way to make you aware of habits and potentially bad practices that you might have developed in your diving.

One Cultural Trip

Mallorca is a great holiday and freediving destination indeed, but the island also has a proud history and a strong local culture – Mallorquin, manifested in it’s own unique language, customs and fiestas. We’ll make a half day excursions to get a feel of the genuine Mallorca.

Final night BBQ Dinner

We’ll finish the week off with a proper BBQ dinner with local flare and some drinks on the terrace of our dive center.
