Nina McGowan is a visual artist and Bikram yoga practitioner from Ireland who discovered freediving while on holiday in Egypt when she was in her mid-forties. Shortly after she turned 50, Nina secured a world record dive of 43 metres that involved holding her breath for 2 minutes and ten seconds.
In this episode, Nina explains how her yoga practice helps her free diving and she outlines the benefits of eating well, sleeping well and clearing your mind to focus on your breath. Nina also shares some of her own personal experience with her hormone journey and seeking out the right support.
Nina’s three priorities for a positive lifestyle change:
- Prioritise your sleep and protect that space
- Make any diet changes slowly and one at a time
- Have faith in yourself to take a step into the unknown and a bridge will appear across the chasm.
