Improve Your Lung Flexibility with FiDive‘s Freediving Yoga Selection!

Lung flexibility is critical for freedivers to cope with compression and depth. A good lung flexibility could prevent you from lung barotrauma (lung squeeze) and could even allow you to dive deeper with Frenzel equalization techniques. Yoga is a fine way to improve lung flexibility as well as core strength so as to improve freedivers’ balance skill and keep body in a streamline shape when training for depth.

FiDive picked several yoga poses that is helpful to increase the mentioned abilities. Come practicing freediving yoga with FiDIve‘s exclusive pose demonstrations!

Diaphragm Stretching

 You may also do a more intensive practice to increase the flexibility of your diaphragm and your rib cage by exhaling fully and then pulling up your diaphragm into your chest. It is strongly suggested to practice with an empty stomach.
