Meet Chris

Sports & Adventure/Scuba Diving

“My passion for the ocean began in 2004, when my life was completely transformed by my love for the deep blue sea. I follow a mindful lifestyle, living in harmony with mother nature, following her rhythms – the sea, the swell, the sun, while not missing the sunrise and its nurturing energy. This brings me inner peace, happiness and love for myself.

Initially I followed the call of the waves as a surfer, then discovered free diving which opened up a whole new world to me; that of fully living in the present moment. I became more conscious of the breath, learning to welcome each breath with a smile. Soon I discovered yoga; I even had an asana practice of my own through my surfing stretches without even realising it!

For me, yoga represents the natural evolution of all of my passions; leading to the connection of mind, body and spirit that allows us to enjoy life fully in the present moment”.

  • “One of the things that sets Chris apart as an instructor in freediving and probably other sports as well is presence. That means when he is coaching he is really there, he has real attention to detail, he gives everything, he is fully there when he is there. For me, when someone is really there with me, its like a place where is can really relax and learn so much faster and I can get to places where I can’t go”.
