Freediving Lessons Close to NY

Thinking about doing some lessons. Definitively on a budget but want to do it right and get a good experience so I am open to all suggestions. I have been spearfishing for 4 years now and Scuba for close to 8 years but definitively have room for improvement in breath holding and going deeper. Anyone have any good suggestions?

Re: Freediving Lessons Close to NY

I want to take a course with http://freedivenyc.com/courses.html

I think Dana Beck runs the course and she is a Performance Freediving international certified instructor.

They have a class on 9/15-9/16 at Dutch springs and 9/11 9/13 at night in NYC

I'm waiting to find out if I can get off from work.

FreediveNYC.com - pool and classroom classes in NY, open water at dutch springs in PA. Highly recommended by those who have taken the course.

Re: Freediving Lessons Close to NY

Old thread,
but I am looking for the same.
I looked up Dana Beck, but the websites does not work.

I swim at a pool in NYC, but public pools here do not allow "breath holding".

I'd like to find a place where i could practice and get some apnea classes.

thank you!
