Fathom Freedive is an expanding group of teachers offering knowledge and experience to create unique Bali freediving courses.
 We span across freediving, marine science, underwater photography, selective spearfishing, nutrition, yoga, energy and breathwork. You can learn about this at our Bali freediving locations.
We have a deep connection to water and thrive on sharing this. People can discover what is possible and draw inspiration from the ocean. Development on many levels happens through this transformative practice and powerful relationship to nature.

  • Healing Breath

  • When experiencing trauma, sometimes we restrict our breathing in order to stop the flow of overwhelming emotions. However, this pattern may continue after the event is over. This holds us back in life and contributes to bad health.

  • Umah Shakti Yoga Studio

  • All our freediving courses include yoga from qualified instructors. Our Sanur dive centre is joined onto Umah Shakti yoga studio. Our vision is to create a space for asana practice, breath-work, meditation and various healing modes wrapped in the beauty of Balinese culture.
