The Zen of Underwater Scene… Maratua Island, East Borneo – How can I learn to hold my breath like a freediver?

It’s not as difficult as you might think. I spent in a state of absolute serenity during an underwater session at a blue hole in Maratua Island, a large island with a lagoon.

Like a freediver, have learned to push self-induced apnea – the scientific term for going without breathing – to new extremes through sophisticated mind-body control techniques similar to those employed by meditating yogis and martial artists.

Eeekk… breathing deep and slowly.
