Why Yoga & Freediving ?

  • The depth you are able to achieve in Freediving is a direct side effect of how relaxed and comfortable you are. Yoga is a great tool to learn how to consciously relax the body and focus mind.
  • Down at depth, our breathing organs are compressed under the water pressure. To reduce risks of injuries due to increasing pressure, we practice targeted lung stretching exercices to keep our breathing organs toned and flexible.
  • Freediving with ease comes from the capacity of being fully present in the moment, without overthinking. Yoga & Meditation are great tools to learn to slow down the mind and cultivate presence.
  • Yoga will help you keep your body strong and flexible and develop a better body awareness. Those qualities will help you improve your freediving technique including kicking, pulling, swimming and equalizing with ease.
