What type of yoga do you use for helping your freediving ?

Pranayama (breathing exercises)? Hatha yoga ? Other ?

I started on Sahaja yoga a couple of weeks ago. It is a form of meditation wherein you restore your energetical balance by sitting in thoughtless concentration. Very difficult in the beginning especially when you find it hard to just sit and Be.

I feel I'm slowly getting the hang of it but the weird thing is, when I go deeper in meditation I forget to breathe :confused:
(till contractions 'wake me up' again...)

Any freediving yogis on the forums ?


Hi Lynn

Pranayama is your key.
Other yogas works well, but Pranayama is otherwize known as breathing yoga.
It has excellent breathing exesizes, and stretches.

It is not as relaxed as the other yogas, cos the stretches are powerful, and leave you with a aching body if it is started to fast.

There is some links to great yoga pages on http://www.freediving.co.za (check out the LINKS section)

Hope it helps...
