A great feeling and a big accomplishment

Diving deep down on breath hold often provides you with trippy thoughts about yourself and gives you the ability to actually think about your problems without being emotionally attached to them. At least for me, part of freediving is to deal with dark thoughts, only to realize that it is better to keep trying to break out of your anxieties.

The fact that you’re temporarily unable to interact with others allows this special sense of a trance-like state that provides pain relief, sedation, and a short amnesia. It’s just like getting into a state of detachment from your physical presence.

I started freediving 17 years ago, in a distressed phase of my life where I was looking for answers on what to do with myself. And, true enough, it shed light onto my path! It gave me some emotionally disconnected perspective on myself and my behavior in public. Usually, I would constantly question every step I would take, every word I would say, and what others could think of me. After so many years freediving I do not think as much about these things anymore.

I have seen lives change from freediving with my own eyes. I have people with real problems come and I work on them as they train. I have seen lives turn around and I am proud to say I have helped.

Freediving is an out-of-body experience. It’s an intense sensation of being separate from your own body. It’s exactly like falling into a hole.

Freediving is a great feeling and a big accomplishment. Learning this skill has never been easier! Just hit the link below to get taught with good care and guidance.
