The oldest and most accurate knowledge known to the human race, regarding breathing techniques, breath holding and breath control had been found in the ancient “Sutras” (Yogic Writings). It had been discovered at Hindus Valley where archaeological found drawings of different Yoga Postures in writings from 5,000 years ago.

Indian Yogis, Shaulin Monks Tibetan Lamas demonstrates extraordinary ability of body and mind control.
Modern Science witnessed Yogis holding their breath for hours, or stopping their heart beat. Yogis, Shaulin Monks and Tibetan Lamas are also known for other mind and body control, such as maintaining the physical body for a long period of time without food.
This outstanding ability immerges out of  their control of “Prana”- the Life Energy. Prana is received from four main sources: air, water, sun and food.

A freediver who knows how to control his Prana will make a better use of the oxygen that his body may able to contain.
Jacques Mayol was the first freediver to combine Yoga with freediving.

Raja Yoga practice combines posture, breathing, meditation, and therefore is considered to be the most appropriate way for freediving. Practicing Asanas (yoga postures) increases muscles and joints flexibility as well as blood flowing and body awareness. Pranayama (yoga breathings) develops ones control over the rhythm and the depth of breathing and strengthening the nervous system.

Yoga practice combines key capabilities that are manifested clearly into the freediving and helps body control, breath control, concentration, withdrawal of senses, physical awareness, and relaxation.

Integrating yoga practice with freediving as a way of life may be a path for a physical and spiritual development.
