Yoga and freediving Daku Resort 15

The week in detail

Mornings and late afternoons David will guide you through a pure, straightforward and joyful classic hatha yoga practice. Each class will be different, reflecting the needs of that day and you, the people in the class.

The practices begin with you, and are wrapped around the breath – pranayama. Whether it is a simple grounding exercise opening the practice, or a dynamic asana challenging the body in a twist, breath will always be the centre. Yoga is not about mastering poses, but learning to master ourselves with the poses as our toolbox, and the breath is the key to that.

The philosophical roots of yoga have long been a deep passion of David’s and are how he tries to live his life. He will lead a separate session on yoga philosophy

Freediving and yoga Daku Resort 3

Freediving

Freediving is a fast growing sport, drawing on mental and physical disciplines and drawing you into a world of unimaginable calm and beauty – it can be a truly wonderful life changing experience. If you have never tried it, make this the year you take that leap into the deep blue.

During the AIDA 1 course (which we will do over two mornings) you will learn to unlock your body’s potential to dive on one breath. We are all born with this ability and re-discovering it brings a deep wonder. On the third and fourth mornings we will take you out snorkeling on the fantastic reefs of Savusavu Bay to practice what you have learnt .

Note: You must be able to swim 200 metres unaided in open water.
