Day 1 - Session schedule
9:00 AM Welcome Meeting
Welcome meeting at the Capri Freediving center. There will be a speedy check-in process and equipment hire if required
9:20 AM Theory Session 1
The first theory session includes an introduction to conscious and safe Freediving. The basics of equalization, breathing and relaxation techniques will be covered
10:30 AM Breathing and Relaxation
It's time to understand how correct breathing works for freediving and for a better lifestyle. Antonio will show you the basic techniques to learn the fundamentals of diaphragmatic breathing and its physiological benefits.
12:00 PM Water Session
It's finally time to go to sea. The sea session will be held in the Ieranto bay, the flagship of the Amalfi coast. The session is divided into two parts.
The first part includes the discipline of Free Immersion, which promotes relaxation and the discovery of the first meters of depth
The second part includes a greater focus on technique and safety in which we will try to implement what we learned in the classroom
3:30 PM Video analysis
Back at the center there will be the opportunity to view the videos made in the water on the cable and comment them together to understand the technical errors to be corrected for better safety and buoyancy in the water
5:00 PM First Day Debriefing
To conclude the first day of the course, a debriefing will be carried out to summarize what has been done and to quickly organize the sessions for the following day of the course
Day 2 - Session schedule
9:00 AM Theoretical Session II
In the second theory session, we will specifically discuss equipment, freediving techniques, human physiology in apnea, and the mind-body connection.
10:30 AM Relaxation Session
There will be a relaxation and autogenic training session where freedivers will have the opportunity to connect intimately with their thoughts and inner selves
12:00 PM Static Apnea
In this session, we will follow static apnea tables to experience and apply what we have learned in the classroom regarding sensations related to our perceptual channels. We will also learn to better connect and communicate with our mind
1:30 PM Cable Session
After the static session, we will return to the cable to put into practice the corrections made in the classroom through video analysis related to the finning technique and the constant weight and/or free immersion techniques.
3:30 PM Theoretical Summary and Final Test
After returning to the center, we will summarize what we have learned in the last 2 days of training, and a small test with 20 questions will be conducted to ensure the basic knowledge required for obtaining the EXPERIENCE certification.
5:00 PM debriefing session and farewells
After successfully passing the exam, there will be a final debriefing with the instructor, and especially a moment to take some souvenir photos with the Capri Freediving team
