Freediving is a beautiful sport where we dive deep into the ocean and into ourselves. It is an experience, where you don't feel that you are holding your breath for most of the time and are totally free. Freediving can be done by anyone, it's not a talent that only few have. In fact most people get amazed right from the start about how long they can actually hold their breath!

At shadesinblue freediving we believe that freediving is not something you have to learn. It is more something that has always been inside you, you just forgot. After all, we come from water and our bodies still have the ability to adapt to us being underwater. Technical Skills are important to learn but the key for good diving is to achieve a deep state of focus and relaxation. This is how we teach at shadesinblue freediving.


AIDA Courses are a great way to start your way into freediving, as well as if you want to continue your way towards a freediving Instructor. In the courses you learn some basics of safety, relaxation, breathing and freediving technique. I teach AIDA 1, AIDA 2 and AIDA 3 courses.

Improve your freediving with a personal coach. Before we go into the water together we will have a chat about your ambitions and ideas. I will then develop a training tailor made for you, depending on that we will work on. Stretching, EQ and Relaxation are included and generally done before we get wet. 




It's the ancient practice to calm the mind, create space, flexibility and strength in the body. Resilience, peace of mind and greater comfort with ourselves are the result. The only thing you need to practice Yoga is a body and the will to show up to practice. I am happy to give private classes for individuals and groups on request.


Dahab has become my home of choice since 2016 after years of visiting frequently. Dahab is the Mekka of Freediving with its infamous Bluehole. Almost all World Class Freedivers have passed through a 'Dahab-time' at some point of their life. Not only the Bluehole is great for Training, but also the Lighthouse Bay, located in the Heart of Dahab has worldclass training conditions.
