About The Event
FREEDIVING MENTAL TECHNIQUES & MENTAL HEALTH WORKSHOP - SQUAMISH, BC - SEPTEMBER 21, 2023
Freediving is a sport that can help to overcome fear, anxiety, depression and even trauma. Luca, a professional freediver and spearfisher, will talk about some techniques they he's used in competiton to help with this. He has been working closely alongside the mental health organization Movember to raise awareness of this important topic.
Your host, Luca Malaguti, is a professinal freediver, Canadian Record Holder and has dove to over 300 feet on one breath.
Luca will discuss some simple tips and tricks freedivers use to prepare for deep dives. How, through proper breathwork, we can exert control over our Autonomous Nervous System (ANS) and force the engagement of the Para-Sympathetic Nervous System (PNS). These techniques allow us to exert greater control over our emotions and create mental resilience.
The evening will also include a movie presentation, screening Luca's recent short film about a diver's journey to face his trauma by breath-hold diving under icebergs. This project, alongside Movember helped to to raise awareness for men's mental health.
Geo Cider, our local beloved cider company (and best tacos in town!) will be sponsoring the event and we will have cider for sale. All proceeds of cider will also go to the fundraiser!
