Learn to Scuba Dive or improve your Diving with the ancient science of Yoga. Pre-dive Hatha Yoga classes teach you to breathe, relax, concentrate and stretch in preparation for diving.
Dives are conducted in small groups with experienced PADI professionals who are also Yoga Teachers or practitioners. Dive in an ecologically responsible and sensitive way whilst enjoying the serene beauty of the coral reefs.
The Yoga Diving Course is completely unique and the first of its kind in the world. Led by two experts in their field, Barbara Gordon and Monica Farrell, the week will give you an introduction to yoga and diving with a Yogic approach to the latter. It is suitable for everybody - divers and non-divers, experienced yoga practitioners and beginners in both fields.
The Yoga Diving courses take place at Reef 2000 Dive Centre located at the beautiful Bedouin Moon Hotel on the northern outskirts of Dahab, a haven of natural beauty on the idyllic Red Sea Coast.
The Yoga Diving Course combines techniques of hatha yoga asanas, pranayama and meditation with scuba diving in a beautiful, natural environment.
The focus of Yoga diving is to bring about inner transformations through meditative experiences of the body/mind both on land and under the sea.
We combine Yoga asanas and breathing with diving techniques. This approach brings us to incredible close encounters with nature and helps us feel stillness, relaxation and altered states of consciousness.
A Yoga and meditation practice in the quiet of the Sinai desert and floating in the pristine blueness and living colours of the Red Sea is an experience which cannot be compared.
Combining Yoga and diving allows us to experience another body-consciousness through the weightlessness achieved through diving.
Non divers will learn diving in an open, respectful and natural way and receive a relevant PADI certification. Certified divers can markedly better their buoyancy skills and ability to observe the life undersea as well as increase lung capacity and improve air consumption.
The course has also helped many to overcome their fear of water. All diving groups are small, so that our instructors can spend as much time with each individual as required. Many of our guests have commented that they feel "incredibly looked after". For all, Yoga diving removes stress and encourages freedom from thought. Diving helps you to experience breath and movement underwater as a form of meditation. Taught together, diving and Yoga can open you up to different worlds, both inner and outer.
