Discover your Depth

Beyond The Comfort Zone

“The only thing that is stopping you from where you are to where you want to go is your comfort zone.”

Dhaval Gaudier

Discover your Depth


With OceanMinded Experiences I invite you to carefully designed courses & retreats, salty air, the sound of the waves, floating on the surface, diving deep into fascinating topics and new feelings & experiences. Discover the inspiration and skills from the world of Freediving – live & up close in the water. In small groups, a family atmosphere and in combination with advanced breathing techniques, yoga, lightness and fun, you will learn to rediscover the art of relaxation, revolutionize your ability to deal with stress and reach your full potential. 

Freediving is a wonderful and very personal journey into the blue. We connect with the ocean, our body, our breath, face our fears, perceived physical and mental limits and finally learn to accept and overcome them. As Freedivers we know the superpower of the ocean and its depths as a great teacher. We train mental relaxation techniques to stay calm, we re-discover our aquatic nature, we come back to the surface strengthened, renewed, with glowing eyes.

OceanMinded Experiences offers you a framework in which you get to know perceptions, thoughts and your body from a different perspective beyond the „surface”, and discover true relaxation and control in the present moment. I would like to invite you to dive into a safe space, into your body and mind, to inspire you for the ocean and thereby help to preserve it. OceanMinded Experiences take place on and in the water!

Welcome to Lanzarote – the most northeastern of the Canary Islands. The landscape is dotted with craters; black, reddish, and brown volcanic rock alternates with gentle green against the backdrop of a steel-blue Atlantic – here one can feel the energy of primeval forces, experience nature as artwork, and find solace – perhaps within oneself. The coasts, beaches, landscapes, and dreamlike wind and weather conditions have made Lanzarote a hub for active holidaymakers and ambitious athletes – dubbed the “European Sports Destination”. Surfers find the “Hawaii of Europe”, sailors and windsurfers rejoice in the fantastic wind conditions and summer temperatures, while freedivers find unlimited depth without current – 365 days a year, in short: a mecca for watersports enthusiasts and adventurous souls.
