Discovery

PURPOSE

The purpose of the Apnea Discovery course with Apnea Life Tenerife is to offer a safe and easy approach to the freediving world. The course contents will be oriented to a first exploration of the breathing and relaxation techniques, in order for the student to get in contact with this sport with a positive mental attitude coming from an experience of well-being. The aim of the Apnea Discovery course is to allow students to discover their own potential by going underwater not to look around, but to look within themselves, generating an unprecedented change in their life.

Results to achieve

Normally, each freediving course featured by the Apnea Academy didactics matches with certain standards and results to achieve in each disciplines (static apnea, dynamic apnea, constant weight, …). However, as Apnea Discovery is intended as an introductive course whose main focus is the well-being of its participants rather than the numeric results, it does not require any final assessments. We can consider that the aim of the course is simply the correct performance of the various exercises.
