Natalie Rudman is not just a yoga Teacher, Natalie is an ambassador for the ocean and the South African Freediving National Record Holder. “Yoga to me is about connecting to our true nature and sometimes it’s on the Yoga mat that you can find that connection and sometimes it’s in the ocean, forest or on a long beach walk that we can connect.” More about Natalie…
The Freediver Course
Learn how to explore the ocean on a single breath. Did you know that we are naturally aquatic beings ? Like other sea mammals, when we dive underwater our bodies change through a series of reflexes and adaptations allowing us to stay underwater longer and more comfortably. In the freediving course you will learn various breathing exercices that will enable you to prepare mentally and physically before and after you dive, you will learn all the safety and rescue procedures and explore the physiology of the breath-hold. After completing the course you will be an Apnea Total Certified Freediver, and have all the tools to dive safely to up to 21 meters.
Fun FreeDives – After completing the course we will take you to our favorite freediving spots including the famous Liberty Wreck, which is full of life, tropical fishes, colourful coral and swim thoughts !
Do I have to take the freediving course? We highly recommend that all participants take the full freediving journey with us but we also offer the option to take only the first day of the freediving course (Intro to Freediving). So if you feel like you want to be part of this but not convinced that freediving is for you (yet), you can choose to focus on the yoga, pranayama and meditation side of this retreat.
If you already are a certified freediver you can join us for training or you can choose to continue to the advanced course!
”Trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float” – Alan Watts
