YOGA LIFE RETREATS love our time at Marsa Shagra. It provides provides a yoga experience that is both special and inspirational, enabling each of us to feel at one with the elements.
Led by experts in their field, the week will give you an introduction to both yoga and diving. It is suitable for everybody – divers and non-divers, experienced yoga practitioners and beginners.
For a diver and free diver, the essential elements of yoga can significantly assist with your air consumption. Breathing exercises, or pranayama, are fundamental in yoga and are ideal for improving lung capacity and encouraging effective, steady breathing. Specific exercises can also help improve core stability of the lower back, which for a diver is of great benefit when carrying diving equipment. Core strength also helps with finning technique, stamina and general fitness and ultimately extending the length of time you are able to enjoy underwater.
The yoga diving course combines techniques of hatha yoga, asanas (postures), pranayama and meditation with scuba and apnea (breath-hold) diving in a beautiful, natural environment. This approach gives us remarkable encounters with nature and helps us feel stillness, relaxation and altered states of consciousness. Taught together, diving and yoga can open you to different worlds, both inner and outer.
There is a wonderful choice of accommodation available. Tents are a hallmark of Marsa Shagra, sitting perfectly on the waters edge, just meters from the shoreline. Upgrades are available at an additional cost.
The well equipped tent on the beach, adjacent to the sea where you dive, completes the experience.
