"What a life changing experience.
Learning the intricate details of breath holds was absolutely amazing and being able to find a meditative state underwater is so blissful. Now I can explore the depths with ease and alot more understanding of my physiology when holding breathe, equalising and the role CO2 plays. Anyone who is in the ocean at all should try this course or anyone who may be uncomfortable with being in water would absolutely benefit. Curtis goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and safe and you can truly see his passion for freediving shine through his teaching. Thankyou :)"
