Level 3

Deep Freediving Course

 “This intensive SSI freediving course focuses on below residual volume diving”

Who is this for?

The level 3 freediving course is very specifically for the person who is already comfortable diving to residual volume and has limited time to explore deeper techniques. We would normally recommend the master programme to learn these techniques at a slower pace.

Much of the focus of training beyond the advanced freediver course is on developing increased thoracic flexibility for deeper freediving and learning mouthfill equalisation techniques for freediving below residual lung volume.

As well as equalisation and thoracic flexibility we also train the freediver to develop a stronger and more efficient freedivers Mammalian Dive Response. We work a lot the mental angle of deeper freedives, using deep relaxation techniques taken from Yoga and modern hypnotherapy.

The Level 3 course is usually taught over 4 days, for those looking for a longer and deeper freedive training immersion the option also exists to include this within the 4 week freediving mastercourse.

Apneista is a community of Professional Freediving trainers and Yoga teachers. We train mostly in Amed Bali, but also teach and run freediving and yoga courses elsewhere in Indonesia and abroad.


We run most of our freedive training in and from our beautiful training space right on the beach in Amed, at the best spot in Bali for Freediving. We have a Yoga Shala and a funky café to chill out in between training sessions. See Our freedive training space for more details. We also have a new training space with a 25 M Monofin freedive training pool and static apnea pool in the incredible Blue Earth Village. 


Bali and most specifically Amed is fast becoming an important centre of freediving in SE Asia, with more and more freedivers choosing it as a place to freedive and hang out. Bali freediving is in warm waters, with beautiful reefs and wrecks. The topside life is also great with a vibrant local culture which is famous the world over. Above there surface Amed is also great and full of things to do.
