The purpose of the Level 1 Apnea Academy course with Apnea Life Tenerife is to set the basis to instruct students to practice freediving in a aware and satisfactory level. In a more specific way than the discovery course, the contents of the level 1 will be oriented towards the technical study of breathing and relaxation in order to facilitate the students to improve their sensations underwater.
The aim of the course is to create a change in the way in which our students experience their relation with water, allowing them to acknowledge the basis for a greater safety and awareness in the management of their body and emotions in the marine environment.
