The Freedom of Freediving

Closer to yourself and nature than you will ever be
Imagine you lying still in the water facing down breathing slowly in and out through your snorkel. Light from the sun makes a spectacular scene in the crystal blue water and the waves makes you relaxed. You close your eyes and feel an inner calm spread inside your body.
A few minutes later you take a final deep breath and dive into the depth of the blue ocean. The silence is stunning, the feel of weightlessness makes your body even more relaxed. You feel your heart in a way you never done before and your heart rate keeps beating slower and slower for each heartbeat.
You are now in one of the few places on earth where you can feel total inner peace.
