Relaqua® is a relaxation concept originating in freediving. Freediving relies on the diver being able to relax for long enough to hold his or her breath until resurfacing. The diver uses different techniques such as meditation, the diving reflex, yoga and most of all pranayama – the breathing exercised in yoga. The Relaqua® program focuses on breathing consciously, as breathing helps us to relax within a short period time, increases our ability to concentrate, purifies our lungs and more.
Water is the elementary component. Floating exercises with breathing pauses are combined with meditation in water, helping to easily achieve deep relaxation. The body is weightless and primary senses such as seeing and hearing are turned off or suppressed. This environment of stillness and concentration combined with the effects of the diving reflex makes meditation especially simple.
