Uncovering Freediving Meditation Underwater at Raffles Maldives
Best Exclusive Resorts in the Maldives
19 January, 2022
Raffles Maldives Meradhoo announces an exceptional freediving experience throughout the whole month of February. For the second year in a row, the luxury resort is honored to host the world-famous underwater photographer and freediving instructor Bastien Soleil.
Having left his native France, he spent years traveling extensively in Asia until he finally discovered the art of freediving over 5 years ago. Bastien does more than 1000 dives every year and teaches hundreds of people from all over the world from all age ranges.
This season, exclusively for Raffle Maldives Meradhoo, Bastien has developed a brand-new learning technique that focuses on personal wellbeing through aquatic sensations.
In the beautiful and serene waters of Raffles Maldives Meradhoo, Bastien will be your guide to an extraordinary and unique connection to water itself. This course that is suitable for all levels of divers provides a breathtaking journey into the world underwater to rediscover oneself.
Guests are welcome to choose one of three freediving options. The one-day course includes a 40-minute theory class combined with 90 minutes underwater and a 45-minute meditation to reinforce the experience. For a more exquisite and full experience guests are invited to choose the two and three-day options to learn more about breathing techniques and relaxation methods as well as indulge in the practice of Free Immersion.
The freediving experience will not be complete without an embodied memory. Bastien will also conduct an unforgettable underwater photoshoot that will remind you of the moment of weightlessness and mindfulness.
