Benefits of Freediving
Entering the world of freediving is a life-changing step! Your mind and body reset and allow you to redefine your beliefs in what you are capable of and what is truly important in life.
The initial body-mind benefits of freediving may include:

- Reduced stress and anxiety
- Increased relaxation and feeling of calm

The demands of modern day living create unhealthy levels of stress for most people. Freediving offers a meaningful way to get outside, destress, connect with nature and like-minded people. It opens the door to adventure – exploring and learning more about yourself and the underwater world in the process. Many of our students speak of finding a new purpose, connection to and compassion for the natural world and experience a positive change in lifestyle.
