Instructor Trainer

Erez Beatus

“My greatest passion has always been the water. I’ve dedicated my life to exploring new ways of being in water and sharing my knowledge with others including swimming, diving, fishing, underwater hockey, meditation and aquatic therapies.

I started Freediving when I was 8 years old while spearfishing with my brother… and began holding my breath for fun since I was 4. I’m currently based on the Gold Coast in Queensland and continue to teach and explore new waters around the globe.”

COVID-19 and Apnea Australia

The Australian Government has just issued new public health orders to help protect the community and reduce the spread of COVID-19. In response, Apnea Australia will be making some temporary changes to business operations. As pool and ocean access is temporarily not possible, all pool and ocean sessions are cancelled until further notice. We encourage everyone to continue with dry training exercises. Courses will not be held on site as gatherings are not allowed, but we are working on online options which will be complimented by practical sessions once restrictions are lifted. As Australia slowly begins to lift restrictions, we will make the required adjustments to our activities and will update you here and on our other social channels on upcoming courses and training sessions. Stay safe and enjoy the silence
