What is breathwork & how will it help my diving?

Breathwork refers to any type of breathing exercises or techniques.Practicing breathwork techniques helps us understand the connection between breath and body and has real potential to refine our buoyancy underwater. These techniques show us the power of our lungs and helps us achieve instinctual understanding of how to use our breath effortlessly on dives so we can gracefully ascend, descend and hover as needed.

Breathwork techniques will help you tap into the full potential of your lung capacity. Full breaths are essential for safe gas exchange in scuba diving, where we need to exhale completely to cleanse our bodies of CO2 waste. When we breathe slower, deeper and exhale completely, the air in a scuba tank is used up more slowly and bottom time is extended (your ultimate goal!). Once we achieve neutral buoyancy underwater, it is the lungs that control our position.

As you practice these techniques, you will notice your dives last longer, your buoyancy will improve and you'll be able to deal with stressful or challenging situations that occur more easily. This will give you more relaxed quality time underwater which is something we could all use more of!
