Jillian Rutledge is a freediver, freediving instructor, breath coach and life coach. Connecting with nature in a deep and meaningful way has been a true desire of Jillian’s since she was a child, dreaming of talking with the animals. As a former underwater guide in Bimini, Jillian assisted people in finding their ultimate breath, being at ease in the water and facilitating a respectful connection with wild animals in the open ocean. Certified as an instructor by Apnea Academy International, she brings this skill to the Dolphin Dance Project Team so the dancers can spend more time comfortably underwater in the dolphin’s world. She offers retreats, coaching and instruction through The Ultimate Breath.
