What is Freediving?
Freediving is diving into the water on one breath.
Freediving is a feeling of serenity, relaxation and weightlessness.
Freediving is exploration of the underwater world free of equipment.
Freediving legend Umberto Pelzarri said: “The scuba diver dives to look around. The free diver dives to look inside”
We believe that some things are good on there own and some even better together, here at New Heaven Dive School, Koh Tao Thailand, we offer a combination of Yoga and Freediving together as a union. We believe Freediving is a form of yoga, a self-discovery, diving deeper not only into the ocean but also into your self.
In our free diving courses you will have the opportunity to learn how to breath efficiently to maximize your bodily functions as well as to slow the activities of the mind down so that, over time you will know how to control your mind/body organism and discover how to transcend your boundaries, and experience a sense of freedom. In the water this means that the techniques you learn will help you dive to depths that you thought was impossible before the start of the course.
Our freediving courses unify a SSI Freediving Certification with yoga/pranayama workshops specifically focused on ‘yoga asana’ (postures) for freediving as well as pranayama (breath work) to help control your mind and meditation for relaxation.
The Freediving aspect of our courses includes theory, breathe holding, pool training, training on the line and ‘fun diving’. The yoga part includes daily Pranayama workshops and hatha yoga classes.
What better way to nourish your mind, body and spirit while learning new ways to explore the ocean and your inner dimension.
