Mer-Made Nemo33 Deep Training and Portfolio Building Experience (2 day) January 2020
Come train your mermaid skills in the 10 metre deep section of Nemo33 in Brussels with expreinced freediving coaches! This is perfect for mers who can dolphin kick confidently and want to work on skills like equalisation in a stunning deep water pool environment, or who want to practice flowing routines that include depth and equalisation elements. There are stunning opportunities for photos and video in this pool.
This extended 2 day experience starts with you arriving in Brussels the night before (transport to Brussels needs to be arranged seperately by you), staying overnight at The Ibis Budget Hotel in South Ruisbroek, 5 minutes drive from the pool.
There will be two 1.5 hour pool sessions on Saturday, and a single pool session 10-12 on Sunday morning. On Saturday there will be time in between pool sessions to relax or attend a theory session on equalisation. You'll be supported in the pool by NoTanx coaches and seniors who will work with your individual level of ability and goals to help you find relaxation and flow underwater.
If you want to add a 1-1 half hour photo session with Marcus, our head coach and award winning photographer you can purchase this using the "portfolio building experience" option which includes both the deep training and a 30 minute 1-1 photoshoot.
We offer the option to attend this as a 1 day event, without the additional overnight stay or pool session, please get in touch if you wish to book this as a 1 day session only (£260, or £360 with the photoshoot) and I will send you a ticket link.
