Calypso Gozo Apnea Offering Third Annual Freediving Yoga Retreats

Ever wanted to combine Yoga and freediving? Calypso Gozo Apnea, based on the island of Gozo, Malta, might have just the thing.

For the third consecutive year, Calypso Gozo Apnea is organizing Freediving Yoga Retreats.

These retreats aim to let the participants immerse into themselves, switching off from the every-day-routines and “switching on” in the inside.

Yoga practices, breathing exercises and relaxed, fun, experimental freediving sessions at the most beautiful spots around Gozo are the core of the program.

Accommodation in a secluded, traditional and sweeping original farmhouse that has been converted to a luxurious guesthouse with a private pool, rooms with ensuite bathrooms and vegetarian meals complement the offering. Plus you will be enjoying talks about freediving physiology, equalization techniques, optional meditations and simply time to just breathe.

Freedivers of all levels are welcome. Just be aware that this is not a training camp, but a retreat about awareness, fun, and discovery. Instead of aiming for depth and time, participants will be able to enjoy what they experience, without any outside pressure or expectations.

The minimum requirements for participating is an introduction to freediving session or a basic course (e.g. AIDA or SSI Basic Freediver).

Packages start at 1150 Euros/US$1376 per person (with 10 percent off if booked by February 28th, 2018) in a shared double/twin room, and include airport transfer plus the ferry ticket, seven nights accommodation, breakfast each day, five packed lunches and two-course vegetarian dinners, five days of freediving at various spots around the island, daily 1.5-hour yoga sessions, and more.
