PADI Relaqua Workshop
A combination of breathing, meditation, yoga and relaxation.
The human being is the only living being that can use breathing to create a desired emotional state. In the Relaqua® course, not only breathing, especially pranayama exercises, plays a role, but also non-breathing - letting go of breathing plays a major role. In the breathing part of yoga, this technique is called Kumbhaka - it does not describe the intentional holding of breath, but the passive breathing.
The Relaqua® concept is completed by complementary techniques such as autogenic training, meditation, floating, yoga and the mental skills from apnoea diving, as well as the so-called mammal diving reflex. It is responsible for ensuring that world-class athletes dive over 200m deep, hold their breath for over 11 minutes or dive over 100m deep under the ice - with just one breath.
