Freediving

Freediving the art of, diving on a single breath of air, is simply the most natural way of adventuring beneath the waves and exploring the depths of the oceans with minimal environmental impact and to spend more time enjoying the beauty and silence of the sea.

People have freedived for millennia, long before the invention of scuba, they freedive for food, for exploration and more recently for sport. Many divers or swimmers will have practiced freediving at some point; every time you hold your breath and swim underwater you are freediving!

This unique sport will show you your true potential and abilities of our body and mind working together.

Over the years of training and teaching freediving I’ve discovered a different meaning of life. I appreciate every breath I take and enjoy it, every moment I hold my breath I sink deep inside my body exploring the feeling and waiting for the moment I breathe again.

Life is full of moments, surprises and adventures and with the help of this sport I have been able to cope with all situations in life, the sad ones and the happy moments, somehow I was able to keep focus and with the help of the mental training for freediving, keep my sanity in check.

Over the years I’ve changed and adapted my life but this sport has been with me and my family for years, it has helped me to stay strong, healthy, happy and calm.

By teaching freediving we are constantly learning, every student has something new to say, add to the experience  or question and with that we are able to develop and learn from every one.

Freediving is not just sport it can be way of life that will bring you a smile to your face on every sunrise.

The area that gains a lot of attention is the extreme sport of competitive apnea where competitors attempt to attain maximum depths, great distances or longer time underwater, either vertically, horizontally or without moving at all. As a species, we’ve even evolved physiological advantages enabling us to dive deeper and longer.

How-ever, Freediving isn’t only about pushing your body to its limits. There are many different reasons to learn to freedive. For some it is enjoying being in the water using the unique adaptations your ancestors developed all those millions of years ago, at any depth to explore the ocean, stay relaxed and better appreciate the underwater environment, unencumbered by bulky scuba gear.

Age, fitness, body type and *** are no barrier. Freediving can be enjoyed by almost anyone.

Other examples of Freediving or breath hold diving is underwater hockey, underwater rugby, under water football, synchronized swimming, underwater photography, spearfishing and snorkeling.

As in all sports, you have to train to get better. The more you train, the more you will enjoy freediving. Having a healthy diet, a fit body and feeling strong will help you in many ways, be it your recreational dives, competitive dives or just boost your confidence in general.

Freediving has been developed over many years, more and more studies have been done, teaching us how and why our bodies react to water the way it does, we have learnt how to recognize signs unique to each individual, that tell us when we need to surface and take a breath, how to recover and more importantly how to prepare for Freediving. Programs have been developed to teach beginners all they need to know to dive safely and within their personal limits.
