As some of you may know we launched a couple of months ago a contest on our Facebook Page and the winner made the wise decision of choosing this hidden gem of 2 days Free Diving & Yoga course in Amed.
Freediving & Yoga, a perfect combination.
Freedive your way into 10 to 20 m deep blue with a single breath. I’m sure many of you will be thinking by now that this is humanly impossible.
Freediving is a truly liberating sport, or even a form of arts according to some. With Apneista in Amed, you will discover amazing things our human bodies are capable of, and how enriching this experience will be for you.
The highly passionate instructors are extremely friendly and very professional. These people will teach you on the theories behind the dive, and also in-depth understanding of what your body goes through during a freedive session. The lessons are easy to follow, and very informative at the same time. In addition, the instructors will also make sure that you are equipped with top-notch equipment.
Along with the dive, you will also enjoy yoga classes to help you prepare your dive physically and achieve a pre-meditative state of mind before your dive.
As stated by Matthew Smyth, the owner of Apneista; in yoga the breath is the bridge between the mind and body, unconscious or conscious. You will learn the art of relaxation while practicing to the sound of the ocean, as you seek in forming that union between the mind and body.
The course takes place over a period of two days and is accessible to everyone from complete beginners to advanced divers. The benefit of it will surpass any expectations you have.

Review from our eOasia’s winner: Sofia Bustos.
“I had an amazing experience during these two days freediving course in Amed. I had no experience and did not expect to go that deep in the water with a single breath.
The yoga taught me how to control my emotions and master my breathing. The combination of yoga and freediving made me surpass all expectations
Following this experience, I went to Flores and kept freediving in different spots, exploring marine life as I’ve never seen before. I went face to face with turtles, colourful fishes and impressive corals.
I highly recommend this experience that taught me new skills, it really made my journey to Indonesia. Thank you eOasia!”
