LEISURE AND SPORT ACTIVITIES
Diving is a sport that, like most sports activities, provides benefits for your body. It is estimated that 45 minutes of diving would allow you to burn between 450 and 550 calories depending on the diving conditions. This is similar to cycling at medium effort or running at a slow pace in the same amount of time. The Kicking movement, on the other hand, allows you to build up thighs, buttocks and abdominal muscles and thus slim down your waist. Finally, diving, which is practiced in water, is not restrictive for the joints because of its buoyancy, with the added bonus of all the beneficial effects of water.

As on Earth, the seabed has very different climates and ecosystems. Diving allows the observation of sanctuaries that bring together in the depths the fauna and flora in paradisiacal gardens. Like the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the Red Sea in Egypt, the Galapagos Islands, the Truck Islands in the heart of the Pacific, Silfra in Iceland, the Cenotes in Mexico, the ephemeral green lake in Austria... And so many other incredible places to discover

Trust your instructor, he will calmly teach you to focus on your breathing. Once your apprehension of the water is forgotten, you will be able to discover and enjoy your dive. Relax, treat yourself to a break! Hearing yourself breathe allows for intense relaxation. So, don't be afraid and let yourself be rocked by the swell. Diving is a natural way to reduce stress, and it is scientifically proven! In fact, a study has shown that going down to the depths, between 20 and 30 meters, while managing your breathing, would reduce stress considerably.
