Freediving or free immersion is the way to real freedom and self-improvement. Freediving gives a person the opportunity to feel complete harmony with nature and feel completely independent of any equipment. Man and depth only. The harmony of freediving is comparable to the fascinating beauty of bird’s flying or panther’s jumping.

The NDL Free Diver Level I course will allow you in just 5 lessons to make this harmony part of your life.

The goal is comfort not a record.

The goal of nonprofessional freediving is human safety, comfort and health. The NDL Free Diver Level I course will provide you with the theoretical foundation you need to fully ensure your security. The mechanics of breath-holding and the rules for submerging should be carried out in such a way that safety is guaranteed. The complete independence of a diver is determined primarily by his ability to provide himself with such conditions that his life and health are beyond any risk. And after this course you will be able to provide such conditions.

Beauty-comfort-security - one cannot exist without the other in freediving.

There is technology - the result will come.
