Eric thanks!!!! Pablo, very interesting, I've seen that the yogis do that, what does this mean?I have always been puzzled with this

Pablo my friend wrote:

"I've seen yogis and freedivers bring they diaphragm up: I read somewhere for reduce they heart rate? Will have a picture practicing the "hollow belly": nice if you could explain that..."

Thanks Pablo, this is interesting to know. Lets see who practices this and in there are real benefits for this.

Hi thanks for the yoga info. You know guys, I've seen that Pipin is under the water meditating and doing yoga. Yasemin sits down and does yoga too. Why is yoga so connected to freedivers and what book or techniques can we practice if yoga is of benefit to freedivers?

I know this is not easy to explain, but I know yoga has many benefits to the mind and soul. The techniques I do are psychocybernetics by Dr Maxwell Maltz(amazon.com) and believe that this can help a freediver. If you have any ideas how yoga can benefit as I believe psychocybernetics benefits, please let us know.
