Owner description: Freediving is the ultimate way to experience the underwater world! At Freedive Gili we teach you to hold your breath and dive free of tanks and bulky equipment, gliding down in silent weightlessness, all in the warm clear tropical waters of Gili Trawangan just East of Bali. Gili Yoga also gives you the opportunity to awaken your mind and body through yoga in one of our daily daily classes set in a beautiful shala in the heart of the island. Our shop an shala are situated at the harbour and are easily found on arrival.

Gili Freedive is a life altering experience. Right upon arrival, the staff were super helpful in getting you ready for the course as well as giving some pointers as to where to stay etc. Dean was a superb teacher, Calm, relaxed and very competent. His delivery of the content over the Level 1 & 2 courses was excellent. The course(s) is presented in a logical sequence with each skill needing to be assimilated and then put into practice in order to achieve a good result. This course takes an honest commitment to learning the content delivered as well as looking after yourself. If you intend to get sloshed everyday on holidays this course is not for you. If your idea of a holiday is about self introspection, relaxation and doing something amazing then this course is the perfect solution. It was a privilege to attend the training and hang with people who are genuinely and humbly in pursuit of their chosen goals, all the while showing you a glimpse into their world. Worth every cent!

Ps: Yoga was awesome too.

I was worried about doing this as it sounds and looks dangerous, however Dean and Jackie were so supporting and knowledgeable they kept me at ease. Free-diving is really cool and can help may areas in life, its helped me learn how to relax my breathing and get over my fear of been underwater. The setup is very professional and accepting to all levels and i hear great things about the owner who holds some UK records too. If you have had enough of scuba or parting on this island you most go to Freedive Gili.

Spend a couple days and you will have an experience that will forever change the way you look at water, your body, and your mind. The results are almost unbelievable. You will learn to dive deeper and hold your breath longer than you ever thought possible. After a couple advanced classes I ended up diving to 50m (free immersion) and holding my breath for nearly 5 minutes (static)! The owners/instructors and staff are super friendly and helpful as well as being world class freedivers. Classes are small enough to provide one on one attention. I highly recommend making a commitment to spending some time with Freedive Gili. You will learn lessons that you can use in day to day life for the rest of your life. I can't wait to get back and spend some more time underwater!

The gili freedive center and gili yoga are perfect companions for each other. I undertook the freedive level 1+2 courses, 2 days and 3 days long respectively, and took multiple yoga sessions with Kate. Mike and his team of instructors are friendly, professional, attentive and incredibly knowledgeable in their field. from simply playing about on the surface, under their instruction and guidance i progressed to diving on one breath to 115ft depth and managed a breath hold of 4mins 17secs, something i could never of imagined beforehand. The entire time i felt safe and totally in control, again thanks to the expert instruction.
if you like the idea of something a little more extreme to scuba, being able to dive deeper than you normally would even with a tank, experiencing diving on a new and competitive level (if you like), rather than just 'looking at fish' i would strongly recommend you visit gili freedive and experience what they have to offer.. you get a real sense of achievement every time you push a little deeper and test your own limits. the relaxation required to be able to dive so deep is helped greatly by also taking some of the daily yoga sessions, where the teachers will help you to become more aware of your breathing cycles and help with your ability to control them as well as improving your flexibility which helps your diving immensely. the water is crystal clear and warm, it really is an ideal place to try this sport. freediving here truly is a life changing experience, get it done.
