What we're about

*as of 5/7/19 the director of the aquatics facility has told us we are not allowed to do breath holding underwater. We are currently trying to start a discussion so that we might still be able to enjoy our passion and sport. This may or may not but a damper on pool sessions*

Hey!

I’m a new freediver looking to continue pool training while I’m in the area. As is probably obvious, training alone can be less effective and more dangerous than with a buddy. I want tailor the training around dynamic apnea, calming breathing practices(yoga and pranayama,) and exercises relevent to spear fishing. If you are experienced or new, like me, please reach out and let’s get a local freediving scene going! Currently I have pool access at East Lyme High School in the mornings during the week. I am also a certified yoga instructor looking to use yogic practices and techniques to compliment the dive training.

Also, I have to emphasize that I am not a certified freediving instructor and this group is by no means a place to learn how to freedive. If you’re curious I highly recommend taking a course from a freediving school. I did mine with Apnea Total in Koh Tao, Thailand but there’s a school in Boston: East Coast Divers. This is mainly a safety measure as I don’t want anyone getting hurt. This group is for divers who already have some experience and are trying to improve their diving, breath holds and meet others doing the same.

Thank you and see you underwater!

I’ll be at the pool for some dynamic training, breathing exercises and stretching in the morning. Currently breaking the cardinal rule of freediving, as I’m diving alone, come out if you’re looking to train for freediving or spearfishing and are familiar with safety procedures.
