Free Diving Improvement Course in Corsica with a World Champion

3 Days / 6 Pers. / 925€ per pers.

Why Corsica?

Because Morgan knows well the Island of Beauty and he decided to team up with another apnea enthusiast, Stéphane Provent who lives near Bastia where he created a school of apnea (Corsica Free Diving). Together, they will offer you the best possible teaching in an exceptional marine environment.

This course is intended for people who know apnea and who are comfortable on depths from 10 meters. These people are free divers who practice this discipline regularly.

This free diving improvement course in Corsica aims to learn or improve techniques to go further. This course will allow you to highlight the specific problems that remain recurrent during your deep descents and prevent you from progressing. We will work specifically on these issues through dry and in-water techniques. Correcting these problems will help you improve your techniques and allow you to go lower while taking maximum pleasure.
We will work on the techniques of deep apnea, we will approach during three theoretical sessions the subjects of the breathing, the physiology of the apnea, the posture, the air intake, the relaxation and the stretches by the Yoga and other methods. All of these themes will be reworked on some drills, but also in the water. A more specific point will be made on the compensation which is a theme often addressed during the internship, because the compensation is often the problem of many free divers.
We will work together on exercises of mentalization, a deep descent, which allows to simulate the sensations felt during the real immersions.
This service includes 4 sea trips and 3 theoretical courses. During the theoretical courses, we will address the specific points of physiology, breathing, introspection by relaxation and relaxation and compensation.
The 4 sea trips will be done most of the time from the port of Toga which is located just a little north of Bastia. We will then take the boat CFD and navigate about 10 minutes to reach a spot that will allow us to work safely while admiring the beautiful landscapes of the Corsican coast. Of course if the weather does not allow to stay on the east side of the Island of Beauty, we will find a possible fallback west side to the port of Saint-Florent that could largely allow us to complete this course.
The sea trips will take place at depths of 10 to 40 meters.

Free divers will come with their own equipment.

For those who can not take their equipment with them or who simply do not have it, Stéphane Provent can provide you with everything you need. However, it will be necessary to be informed sufficiently in advance to find the sizes which suit you.

Passport

For all nationals of a country of the European Union, the valid identity card is sufficient. For countries outside the European Union, the passport is mandatory.

New security measures have come into effect at airports: electronic devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops …) must be loaded and in working order for all flights going to or passing through the United States and London. The screening officers must be able to turn them on. As a precaution, have your charger handy. If your device is discharged or defective, it will be confiscated. As this measure is likely to be extended to other airports, we advise you to charge your electronic devices before the flight, whatever your destination.

Visa

Depending on your nationality, the duration and reason for the stay you plan to make in France, it is advisable to bring a visa.
To do this, contact the French consulate or the French Embassy in your country of residence.
