The Water Within
A Five-Day Underwater Yoga Retreat
Baja California Sur, Mexico
November 3rd - 7th, 2023
The Water Within
What is between the terrestrial and the cosmic? Time away from nature disconnects us from the primitive. Similarly, time away from contemplation withdraws us from our Divine nature. In this retreat you will learn how to connect with the water within you so that your energy is relaxed and humble enough to connect with the under-water world.
We welcome you to our four-night and five-days underwater yoga retreat in our private and secluded Villa in the National Park of Cabo Pulmo Located in Baja California Sur, México. Our villa is equipped with first-class rooms, breathtaking views, excellent service and genuine hospitality just North of San Jose del Cabo on November 3rd - 7th, 2023.
The experience includes theory and practice about the connection between yoga and marine biology. Through a series of yogic postures, breathing exercises and meditations led by Lizbeth & Estrella, this will prepare you to free-water dive to enter the under water animal world. Learning, feeling, perceiving, interacting are all qualities that will help you surrender to the animal world. Additionally, you will also have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the amenities of our beach front private Villa, while basking under the sun and soaking up the coastal beaches of Cabo Pulmo, Mexico.
The Big Blue Freediver Certification will give you access to dive into the National Park Waters as an under water-yoga-free-diver. Please note that the Water Within Training is required, should you already be certified as a Free Water Diver let us know. Our training relates to the water within and animal interaction which will increase your knowledge even if you are already certified.
* Pricing for certification is already included in retreat pricing. * Standard Rental equipment will be provided and included in retreat pricing: wetsuits (optional), fins, masks, and snorkel. We encourage you to use the equipment or bring your own due to the body drop in temperature under water (even though its warm during this time).
What to Expect from the Training?
You will acquire the knowledge in freediving, with easy exercises that you can practice anywhere. You will learn how to train your body, the flexibility from the toes to the fingers, specially working the lungs to increase its inner volume.
You will be thought one of the most efficient ways to clear your ears to go deep into the ocean. You will know how to freedive with a partner, how to take care of each other with the safety rules, getting to know and practicing the techniques for rescue.
