Freediving & Yoga Level 2
Want to dive deeper?
Experience the serenity past 20m and lets feel the flow of the ‘free-fall’.
It’s said that every human being can dive to depths of around 20 meters, believe it or not it is in our capacity, it is just our fear that limits us. Fear is the mind killer, so we address this in level 1 with certain yoga practices and free diving techniques and get learn how to dissolve this fear and feel that wonderful sense of freedom.
Level 2 however is a different ball game; we attempt to dive to depths up to 30 meters, which is beyond the natural capacity for most people. However with training we can develop our abilities to well beyond this depth. It was only in the 1970’s that the first competition free divers started to really explore where we can take this amazing sport of inner space. Today the best free divers are diving to depths well over 100 meters, and although we are not going anywhere near that, we begin on this level-2course to extend and expand our limits to what we may have though was the impossible just a few days before.
