Pool Freediver

Pool Freediver:

You are curious and want to get to know the feeling of moving under water with just one breath? You want to prepare yourself in peace and quiet for further steps in free diving? You want to go deeper into the world of free diving?

Then the Pool Freediver is just the right thing!

Course description:

We will give you a detailed briefing so that you feel confident in the theory that is important for understanding freediving. At SSI, you can relax at home and learn about freediving theory and then deepen your knowledge with your freediving instructor.

We explain the correct breathing technique and guide you over the limits of your breathing as you have known it up to now. In a relaxation session you will experience your breathing reflex and learn to delay it. You will learn to breathe again and how to observe and delay the breathing reflex.

In practice we will go into the free diving equipment and how to use it. We show you the correct, effort-saving diving technique and how to move effortlessly through the water with your fins. You will get to know neutral buoyancy as a means of free diving. The exercises of the Pool Freediver will later help you to move deeper and further under water.

You will also learn about safety procedures and how to end a freedive safely after surfacing.

Entitlements after the course:

If you have completed the Pool Freediver Programme, you can then continue with Freediver Level 1. You only need to complete 2 open water dives. The theory and pool sessions are identical to Level 1.
