Seminar to promote relaxation and stress management with experiential sailing

If you keep asking yourself the following questions, then this course is really for you!

  • Why do I have stress? What is stress anyway? Is there such a thing as positive stress? And if so, how can I use positive stress for myself?
  • What are my limits of overload? And what are my limits of underloading?

We want to answer all these questions together so that you regain control of your life with strength and confidence.
