Tekstreme are pleased to announce that once again they will be teaming up with well known and repected specialist apnea center “Only One ” based in Sharm El Sheikh.
Soft, smooth, quiet, confident, serene, peaceful: all these adjectives hint at the intense pleasure well-trained freedivers feel. Without a mechanical breathing apparatus, you’re truly free—free to flow effortlessly into the womb-like, enveloping water, free to join the ocean not as a interloper but as a welcome friend. It’s the feeling of true ease and relaxation under the water.
Humans share special diving adaptations with marine mammals. The most dramatic is the “mammalian diving reflex.” Simply immersing your face in cold water causes a reflexive slowing of your heart rate. This, as well as other oxygen-sparing adaptations, helps to prolong your dives. Your spleen releases extra blood cells and blood vessels in your skin and large muscles constrict, reserving blood for more vital organs, namely your heart and brain. With the expertise of your instructors you will find that once you begin this jouney you will never want to leave it.
