Welcome to Fathom Freediving Bali

Under the waves is a true wilderness, alive with strange creatures. It's a mysterious world of origins that touches something deep within us. Freediving is a therapeutic return to water and, when mastered, is a natural, calm activity that invigorates and inspires us.

Our school is here to share freediving with anyone who feels drawn to it. We incorporate aspects of yoga, breathwork and psychology into certified PADI and AIDA courses. We encourage students to unlock their amphibious potential, finding inner peace through the transformative freedom they experience. Freediving alters our consciousness in subtle but real ways.

The underwater world opens to those who approach it with soft focus and clear intention. States of mind reached during freediving can positively impact other areas of life. We become able to let go, live in the moment and manage emotions.

Do you want to discover a magical space… in water and within yourself?

Nurture a fluid awareness of aquatic flow. Join us on an alchemical adventure into the liquid wilderness.
