Emma Farrell

Emma FarrellĀ is the author of the beautiful book One Breath: A reflection on Freediving. She is a major contributor to the development of AIDA and other education systems as author of their education materials, and is dedicated to making freediving accessible to everyone, especially those for whom it may not be so easy.
She’s worked with Olympic and Paralympic athletes, teaching them a combination of yoga and freediving techniques that have hugely improved their performances and in everything she does she tries to communicate her passion for freediving and the underwater world to her students.
