Freediving, free-diving, free diving, breath-hold diving, or skin diving is a form of underwater diving that relies on breath-holding until resurfacing rather than the use of breathing apparatus such as scuba gear. Besides the limits of breath-hold, immersion in water and exposure to high ambient pressure also have physiological effects that limit the depths and duration possible in freediving.

      010: Rethink Your Breathing - Part 2 Mouth Breathing vs Nose Breathing - The Power of the Breath & Epic Wellness

      "The Nose Is For Breathing, The Mouth is for Eating." How do you breathe? Through your mouth or through your nose? It might be something you've never given much thought about. But on this episode, competitive freediver, Renee Blundon, will try to convince you that you should.  Breathing through the nose, Renee believes, is the secret to better health, wellbeing and performance. And yet, most of us breathe through our mouths, breathing too fast and shallow, so our health and performance is not nearly as optimal as it could be. In this episode, Renee reviews the physiology of nasal breathing versus mouth breathing, and how breathing IS NOT a byproduct of what you're doing, nasal breathing in indigenous cultures, animals when it comes to nose versus mouth breathing, the unawareness about mouth breathing and how breathing through the nose while exercising / training is more beneficial than breathing through the mouth because you can make BETTER decisions. This is part 2 of 2, so make sure to listen to the previous episode!
