Freedive Theory –
During this course, you will learn breathing techniques to slow down your heart rate and conserve oxygen. Your instructor will show you how to equalise your ears using the Frenzel technique. It will allow you to Freedive up to 20 meters without feeling any discomfort. The biggest part of the theory is about the MDR: Mammalian Dive Reflex. Without it, we humans would not be able to Freedive. It is the key component to this sport and the uncovered super power of the sea. This gift from nature shared by all mammals on earth, allowing us to stay underwater for extended periods. Although human beings have a much weaker sense of this, with proper training, and regular diving, the MDR becomes stronger, more president and efficient. From simply immersing the face and body in water, reactions include slowing of the heart rate, peripheral vasoconstriction, the spleen effect and blood shift.
