Fall 2018 Freediving & Yoga Week

We are really excited to present the brand new 2018 Fall Edition of the Freediving & Yoga Week on Mallorca. This edition is the first to include convenient and beautiful town house accommodation while also expanding the program compared to previous editions.

The Freediving & Yoga Week is hosted by @PJFreedive, @LydieYoga and Tramuntana Diving & Adventure between Oct 6 and Oct 13 and is packed with freediving, yoga, work shops, beautiful crystal clear waters, relaxing, and awesomeness for all levels of certified freedivers.

A minimum of the following will be available for you throughout the week.

Accommodation

We have rented a beautiful town house for you in the heart of Puerto Pollensa with a courtyard, swimming pool for static training and relaxing, fully equipped kitchen, 4 bed rooms, two bath rooms and a summer kitchen by the courtyard. It is located 100m from the sea and a few minutes walk from the dive centre.

  • Check in Oct 6
  • Check Out Oct 13

Four Half Day Freediving Boat Trips

Our popular half day trips in Pollença Bay, or combo trips as we call them are a combination of line diving and fun diving. 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 Pollensa Bay. Typical dive time 2 x 60 min.

One trek and dive day

One of the days we will set out on foot and enjoy a beautiful trek over the hills to a less visited dive site where we will explore the new bay and it’s beautiful underwater world.

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 fellow freediver Lydie Ruiz.

Stretching for Freediving Workshop

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

Pranayama Session

Pranayama is a common name for various forms of breathing excercises in yoga. Many pranayama excercices have great benefits for freedivers in terms of breath control, CO2 accustomization and cleansing. In this session you will be guided through a few of them.

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 and gives you a better chance to correct them.

Optional Stand Up Paddle Board Session

SUP is a great way to relax and spend some time above the surface. The optional session will be guided in a nearby bay.

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.

Apart from these above listed segments your instructor will be available for tips and guidance on technique, training, equalization and any other freediving related issues throughout the full week.
