“A new concept where dive become a way of wellbeing, a moment to clear the mind and to reach a weightlessness world in order to feel like a fish in the water.” Julien Michel
wHO IS JULIEN MICHEL?
Julien Michel was born in Annecy-le-Vieux in 1982. Passionate by sports, he succeed the CAPES in “Education Physique et Sportive” at IUFM Strasbourg in 2006. He began his career in le Bas-Rhin and came back to the roots quickly in the high school and then the college of Rumilly (74).
Underwater dive addict, he became instructor in Talloires at the academy “ProfilPlongée” during holidays in 2002 and then became manager of the academy in 2008. 2016 was a turning point for him because he refused the national education to become the owner of the academy.
Then, he realized the benefits of diving and its distressful effects, so, he developed a new concept: the underwater dive in pool.
WHAT IS UNDERWATER RELAXATION?
Underwater dive is an activity practiced inside a pool. In order to increase relaxation, the equipment is minimalized; a dive goggle and a pressure reducer.
Face to face with an instructor, we learn how to handle our breath and to stabilize the body horizontally in order to have a feeling of flotation near to the feeling of foetal environment.
Then, we can close our eyes, relax and forget all of our atmospheric reflexes to become an aquatic element such as a fish in the water. Absolute relaxation guaranteed.
We saw that a diver with a pressure reducer has quickly a wide and slow breathing near to yoga relaxation technics.
The benefits are scientifically proved.
A study of “Assistance publique (Paris hospital), The Univesity of Aix-Marseille and L’Institut de recherche biomédicale des armées” showed that there was a link between diving and stress reduction.
