Gerlinde Seupal, Director of Aquanauts added: “There is a general consensus that yoga and scuba diving complement each other, given the emphasis on quality of breath. Habitual patterns are challenged in both activiities, our mind is asked to explore new dimensions of our body and its movements in yoga and diving requires openness to a new environment physically and emotionally. Yoga diving has been available in resorts in the Red Sea, Egypt, but this is a first for the Caribbean and a a great new workshop for guests who dive”
