LEARN THE TOOLS USED BY YOGIS AND FREEDIVERS TO CALM THE MIND, RELAX THE BODY, AND ESTABLISH FOCUS. GREAT FOR MANAGING WORK STRESS AND TEAMBUILDING!

"How on earth could freediving help me in the office?" You might be asking yourself this very question and while, it's true, the physics, diving technique, and depth adaptation have little relevance, proper breathing, relaxation techniques, lunch-break stretching routines, and controlled apnea (breath holding) can provide a litany of benefits including but not limited to: 

  • Anxiety reduction

  • Stress reduction

  • Increased focus

  • Improved executive function and decision-making

  • Improved blood flow

  • Increased O2 availability to all tissues including the brain, lungs, and muscles.

  • Increased lung capacity

  • Increased energy levels without the jitters of stimulants

There will be a lecture-style portion where we go in depth as to the 'why' behind all this. Pulling from the time-tested practice of meditation, we will expand upon the nature of the mind, how it sabotages us throughout our day-to-day lives at home and in the office, and how to use a variety of methods to bring us back to the present moment. 

Much of our time can be spent worrying about future deadlines and looming presentations, or conversely, ruminating about the past and wondering if we did a good enough job, or what edits we should have done, and so on. Both of these - worry and rumination - rob us of our freedom to be fully present with the task at hand and therefore only sabotage our overall performance, be that in the water, at work or at home.
