Hey there! Are you ready to take your yoga and freediving skills to the next level?

And if you’re new to freediving altogether, no worries! Our perfect package has everything you need to dive right in.

Anahaw and Dumagat Freedive will host a special Yoga & Freediving Level 1 certification weekend on May 27th and 28th. Limited to 8 participants, with a maximum of 4 students per instructor, this 2-day event includes yoga, breakfast, lunch, and the SSI Freediving Level 1 certification. The promotional fee for this event is 14,000 PHP.

This program combines online training, lectures, pool/confined water sessions and open water dives to help you become a confident and safe freediver in no time. Once certified, you can freedive with a buddy in open water up to a depth of 20 meters and explore a variety of stunning underwater ecosystems around the world. 

You can book a spot by sending us a message. Once booked, kindly download the SSI app on your smartphone or tablet, create an account, and select Dumagat Freedive as your training center. Within the app, complete the Medical, Liability Release, and Responsible Diver Code forms by clicking on “…More” and then “Records.” Once registered in the course, you can start studying the academics anytime, anywhere at your own convenience before the lecture/review and in-water training sessions.

During the pool/confined water training, your SSI Instructor will teach you all the necessary skills in a controlled environment until you are comfortable and ready to go to the open water. During the open water training dives, you will apply your knowledge and repeat the skills in a real-world environment under the supervision of your Instructor.

Once you have completed all of the required training sessions, final exam and open water training dives, we will be the first to congratulate you on your accomplishment as you receive your SSI Freediving Level 1 certification.

We will provide light breakfasts, yoga mat, lunches, and a full set of gear including a freediving mask, long fins, snorkel, wetsuit, weight belt, and weights for use during the course. If you happen to have your own freediving equipment, please feel free to bring and use them instead. We will also be providing photos and videos not only for analysis, but also to mark this major step in your freediving journey. Remember to pack a towel, sunscreen, and a reusable water bottle for your convenience.
