As an experienced Pure Apnea and PADI Freediving Instructor, Submarine Pilot and Oceanographer, she brings a wealth knowledge to each class. And as a qualified Yoga Instructor she is able to blend her understanding of the mind, body and breath to make your experience of freediving wonderful.

During a volunteer work with I am Water Foundation with Hanli Prinsloo and Peter Marshall (former world record holder in the 50-meter backstroke and the 100-meter backstroke) and Ray of Hope Expeditions with Dr. Andrea Marshall the Queen of Mantas!.
Now, the next step was to continue the training in freediving, so she went to South Africa and Moçambique. Again as part of the I AM WATER Team, Pure Apnea Level 2 was achieved.
During her time in South Africa (several months), she met the founder of Pure Apnea Organization, John Daines and his lovely wife Daniela Daines. The training was tough in a freezing quarry, but the instructors John Daines and the mermaid Beth Neale (the most beautiful soul Diana have ever met and South African Free immersion freediving record holder!) were part of an amazing experience, with professionalism, human warm, helpfulness and love!
Then Level 3 and Instructor Course took place in Bali, Indonesia with the incredible Polish freediver Agata Bogusz (nationals recors holder). After the Instructor course was complete, Diana was offered a job as an instructor at Fusion Freediving & Yoga.
