Molchanovs Freediving COVID-19 Statement

Online Shopping

You can still shop online. In fact it is a good moment to research your desired products thoroughly and get them now so you will be geared up for future dives. The WHO has confirmed it is safe to receive packages from anywhere in the world, including an area where a coronavirus outbreak has been identified. See more info from the WHO here.

Molchanovs Instructor Update

We are temporarily modifying the 1 year requirement to complete course requirements. For any course that is run between January 1, 2020 to June 1, 2020, your students will have 18 months to complete their course requirements.

Additionally, as of Monday, 16th of March 2020,  the number of days you have on your Membership will be frozen until further notice (this means that if you have 160 days left as an active instructor, your days will be paused at 160 until further notice). You will not lose your days remaining until we see the situation improving.

Student Update

We are encouraged to stay at home. That doesn’t mean we can’t continue our freediving practice. Freediving is not merely happening in the water. There is so much we can practice from home that will improve our performance in the water. Let’s embrace this time of solitude to create new routines and ways of living. In the face of solitude, community carries on. Over the next few weeks we’ll be delivering daily content from our community and ambassadors, this is the Molchanovs Movement. We’ll be providing digital stretching, yoga, workouts, training practices to keep you connected and in training.
