Sample schedule of the course

Wave 1 - Day 1 Wave 1 - Day 2 Wave 1 - Day 3

The schedule may be adjusted depending on weather conditions or the needs of participants.

Your course will start in the classroom where you will learn crucial information about human physiology, the proper breathing process, and the mammalian diving reflex. You will learn relaxation techniques and proper breathing before and after the dive. After the class, you will be able to do your deepest breath ever and clearly understand how to prepare your body and mind for a smooth, relaxed, and safe breath-hold dive.

Before entering the sea you will practice breath-holding in the pool in a safe and controlled environment. Most of the participants can hold their breath for 2-3 minutes during the first session.
On the second day, you will be practicing in the pool as well to work on your finning technique. Pool training is an essential part of every freediving course. Most of the skills needed in open water can be trained first during free diving lessons in the pool. It helps to practice new motor skills and to develop more control and confidence.

You will learn how underwater pressure affects our body and gain essential skills for every freediver — Frenzel Equalization.
You will go through special stretching for freedivers, relaxation, and visualization techniques — all will improve your body preparations for the dive.

Freediving Course in Nusa Penida

You will have 3 open water sessions – the main and most important part of the course. This is minimal duration, from our experience, which needed to practice all basic skills and gain enough experience.
During this course, we do not aim for the deepest depth. Our main focuses are on technique and comfort. We use an individual approach only! Our training is always adjusted to the needs, interests, and abilities of each particular student.

What things do I need to bring to start freediving?

You don’t necessarily need to bring anything to your course. We have all the gear you might need but if you have your own gear like fins, mask, wetsuit, be sure to bring it with you.

Freediving with your own gear is always more convenient.

How can I freedive if I can not hold my breath for too long?

This is one of the popular doubts for beginners but it appears only due unknowing.

During your basic freediving course you will learn proper breathing and relaxation techniques.

Almost all the students reach breath-hold times of well over 2 minutes without any problems during the first lesson!
