The yoga diving course is completely unique and the first of its kind in the world. Pioneered by two experts in their field, Barbara Gordon and Monica Farrell, the week will give you an introduction to yoga and diving with a yogic approach to the latter. It is suitable for everybody - divers and non-divers, experienced yoga practitioners and beginners in both fields.

The yoga diving course combines techniques of hatha yoga asanas, pranayama and meditation with scuba diving in a beautiful, natural environment. Pre-dive Hatha yoga classes teach you to breathe, relax, concentrate and stretch in preparation for diving. The focus of yoga diving is to bring about inner transformations through meditative experiences of the body/mind both on land and under the sea. We combine yoga asanas and breathing with diving techniques. This approach brings us to incredible close encounters with nature and helps us feel stillness, relaxation and altered states of consciousness.

A yoga and meditation practice in the quiet of the Sinai desert and floating in the pristine blueness and living colors of the Red Sea is an experience, which cannot be compared. Combining yoga and diving allows us to experience another body-consciousness through the weightlessness achieved through diving.

Non-divers will learn diving in an open, respectful and natural way and receive a relevant PADI certification. Certified divers can markedly better their buoyancy skills and ability to observe the life undersea, as well as, increase lung capacity and improve air consumption. The course has also helped many to overcome their fear of water. All diving groups are small, so that our instructors can spend as much time with each individual as required. Many of our guests have commented that they feel incredibly looked after.

For all, yoga diving removes stress and encourages freedom from thought. Diving helps you to experience breath and movement underwater as a form of meditation. Taught together, diving and yoga can open you up to different worlds, both inner and outer.

Beginners course overview

Each day begins with an 08:00 yoga class, which teaches you to breathe properly and prepares you for the sport element of diving. Your diving instruction begins where the yoga leaves off with very gentle introduction to equipment and breathing underwater on your first dive. As a beginner you will dive in shallow, easy locations while still surrounded by the beauty of undersea life - no swimming pool work is necessary as tuition is either one to one or in a very small group with your instructor.

Relaxation and safety are the goals of your diving and skills are taught at your own pace in a relaxed manner.

The group also generally goes out for dinner together a couple of evenings in the week to one of Dahab's many restaurants. On your day off you can visit the famous Mount Moses and/or visit St Katherines Monastery. You can also go to snorkel at Ras Abu Galum, a small Bedouin village one hour north of Dahab up the coastline. Bedouin live there as they have done for centuries and it is still without electricity. There is wonderful snorkeling there and you can stay the night there hosted by Bedouin. There is still plenty of time for additional activities which include diving, snorkeling, camel or horse riding, desert dinner/meditation, trekking, mountaineering and wind/kite surfing.

Dahab is one of the Red Seas oldest diving resorts and hosts some of the most spectacular and challenging dive sites in Egypt. It is now just as popular as a budget holiday resort location for those who simply want to relax and get some sun, however with camel safaris, snorkeling trips, and desert excursions to name a few days out, theres plenty to keep you occupied too.

The yoga diving courses take place at Reef 2000 Dive Centre located at the beautiful Bedouin Moon Hotel on the northern outskirts of Dahab - a haven of natural beauty on the idyllic Red Sea Coast.
