Freedive Gili Instructors
Mike Board (UK) - As a member of the 2011 British Freediving Team (www.britishfreediving.org) he has dived to 91m and has set four British National records, currently holding the Free Immersion record at 83m. As a Freediving Instructor he is an SSI Instructor Trainer and an Apnoea Total Master Instructor.
Through competing in international competitions, discussing techniques with other athletes, and being coached by great Freedivers such as multiple World Record holder Sara Campbell, he aims to ensure that his teaching is always up to date and using the best methodology.
He has a strong physical approach to his own training, however through Freediving he has discovered that equally important is the balance achieved through activities such as yoga and gaining greater self awareness and mental focus. Both approaches feature strongly in his teaching style. As part of the Freedive Gili team Mike teaches courses weekly throughout the year (when not away competing!) and is keen to share his passion for Freediving with you.
Kate Middleton (NZ) - Dedicated Yogi and freediver, originally from Vancouver, Canada. Kate practised yoga for 10 years before trying her first breath-hold and immediately fell in love with the symbiotic relationship offered between yoga and freediving. Kate’s teaching style is an energetic, creative and full-spectrum approach to embodying your fluid nature. Whether on the yoga mat or underwater, Kate encourages you to use the breath as a navigating source of conscious living, reconnecting to the system and source as a whole.
Kate sees competition as the perfect vehicle to exploring your potential and came first overall in the recent South East Asia Breathless competition. Kate has been teaching yoga for 5 years and freediving since 2009. Along with teaching SSI and AIDA freediving courses, Kate runs Freediving and Yoga retreats at Freedive Gili
