2-DAY FREEDIVING RETREAT LEVEL 1

Sea inside. Hear the call of the ocean and adopt new breathing and relaxation skills you can use in every day life. Located in the well-being centre of Mornington Peninsula.

BOOK NOWLEVEL 2 RETREAT

Much more than a freediving course, understand the underwater world and begin to move freely and calmly within it. Get to know yourself in the water and immerse with seals, fish & dolphins.

Course Location: Mornington Peninsula, VIC

Ideal for anyone curious about learning about how to be at peace moving freely in the water, without the pressure of performance.

This entry level retreat is suitable for you if you seek to know yourself better in the water environment, either because you’ve heard the call of the ocean and are drawn to it willingly, or even if it represents negative experiences and fears that you seek to overcome to build new confidence.

Through healthy, supportive and stress-free development in freediving, liberate yourself from the things holding you back and become happy and confident swimming freely in the sea, and life.

Developing the skills and knowledge within your reach moves you towards PADI Freediver certification, available upon successful completion of the retreat.
