Yoga and diving are intrinsically connected, through breathing. After practicing Yoga you feel inner bliss, very similar to the way you feel after diving. Both are a kind of meditation. It’s only natural to combine them into one epic trip. We know that a lot of divers like to practice Yoga and a lot of Yogis likes to dive, so we made it easy – You don’t have to choose!
On our Dive Trips and Yoga Retreats, you will enjoy a week of diving in amazing spots around the world and deepen your Yoga practice while breathing the ocean air. We will host the best Yoga teachers who will help you dive deeper into Yoga at your own pace. Join us on a Dive and Yoga trip to unwind your mind and soul.
