Through the curriculum developed by Performance Freediving International, the world leader in freedive training. As a student you will learn how to relax into the realm of apnea, how to control your breathing and how this can be used in your everyday life. Mike will teach you what it takes to be a safe and proficient freediver, step by step, one breath at a time.
