Step 1: Theory + Pool (private course)
If you can hold your breath for 3-4 minutes and freedive comfortably to 25-30 meters, it’s time to learn skills and level up. This advanced course is about learning techniques to freedive safely below the residual volume of your lungs. The course start with online theory, available in English, French, Russian and Thai languages. You will learn advanced freediving techniques such as: breathing techniques, reserve packing frenzel, mouthfill equalization, deconcentration of attention, packing and reverse packing stretches, dry training tables, freediving fitness training and more…Once you finish your online studies, we will meet at the pool and start your training with some stretches which increase relaxation and lung size. Then we will coach you to hold your breath for 4-5 minutes in static apnea and 75 to 100 meters in dynamic apnea. Your dives will be filmed for later technique review. In this course we practice with bi fins, no fins and monofin. After improving your pool skills to maximum, we begin to practice the new equalization techniques and prepare you for the ocean training.
