Yoga for Scuba Divers Workshop

Practice on land to build strength, increase your air efficiency, and become a better diver

November 10th, 1:15 - 4:00 pm
The Union Yoga Center, 242 Carlton St. Toronto

Yoga for Scuba Divers teaches you poses, breathing exercises, visualization techniques, and yoga lifestyle principles that combine to make you a better diver. By practicing the yoga poses in this workshop you can: improve your balance and stability, build core strength to protect your back when carrying tanks and weights,
build abdominal control to fine-tune your buoyancy, strengthen your legs for those fun walks down to the water in full gear, and develop powerful muscles that improve your finning. The breathing exercises will teach you to breathe steadily during physical exertion, which will keep you calm and rational under water. The
visualization techniques will help you prepare mentally for dive challenges. All of the poses you learn are practiced on land, not in the water. Beginners to yoga are welcome - this is a great way to learn.
