Online Breath Hold Optimisation Classes

Improve your breath hold and lung function, and improve your freediving.

The Breath Hold Optimisation Classes are based on the programme Emma devised for Olympic and Paralympic athletes across cycling and swimming, and have been used successfully since 2010.

The exercises are designed to teach you how to breathe fully and efficiently, improve CO2 tolerance, increase breath hold capacity, increase Vital Capacity, decrease Residual Volume and improve diaphragm flexibility.

Emma’s program uses techniques from yoga, freediving and the Buteyko method, and have been proven to improve lung function and performance.
