Yoga – Meditation – Pranayama – are at the heart of the retreat combined with various underwater experiences. In this spiritually and physically immersive experience you will select a program that suits your interest and ability; be it scuba, snorkeling or freediving. Explore the ways that yogic tools can deepen your understanding of your body’s unique needs, enhancing your ability to move, breathe and remain calm both underwater and on land. Dive into yoga philosophy gems such as Ahimsa (non-harming) and Sthira and Sukha (balancing effort and ease) as a way of elevating your relationship with yourself and our natural ecosystem. There will be time for personal reflection, relaxation and an opportunity to stimulate your taste buds with some of the best chocolate, spices and rums in the world.



What to expect Ocean side

SCUBA
– you get the opportunity to try scuba diving in a safe environment if you are not certified. If you are certified you may want to join the scuba yoga diver class or just enjoy boat dive trips to Grenada’s beautiful dive sites

FREEDIVER
Freediving is about silence; the silence that comes from within. Jacques Mayol
Ever since the legendary freediver Jacques Mayol introduced yoga and meditation to freediving, they have become an integral part of the practice. As you ground yourself with yoga seek inner peace through meditation, so too you find your inner self as you to become one with the underwater world, on a single breath. You may or may not go for the PADI Freediver certification or if you are already certified freediver enjoy some guided dives at Grenada’s beautiful sites.
