SSI FREEDIVING COURSES

 

Freediving Courses

 

The courses are just the beginning of the journey (and freediving as such is a journey anyway..:-)).


Proper breathing, relaxation techniques, streamlining, freediving physiology, proper positioning in the water as well as yoga sessions are part of the courses.


If you are uncertain, start with an introduction to freediving before you choose for the full course.

 

You have some experience already? Then jump to the SSI Freediving level 1 course to gain a certification that is recognised where ever freediving will take you in the world!
