An innovative new Scuba-Yoga program was recently introduced at LaSource, a luxury spa resort on the island of Grenada. While these two activities may seem incongruous, they may have more in common than you might think. Both scuba diving and yoga require controlled breathing.
Aquanauts Grenada’s PADI 5 STAR Gold Palm Resort dive center manages the program for LaSource. Gerlinde Seupal, founder and owner of Aquanauts Grenada along with her husband, Peter, calls it “quality of breath.” She says, “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.”
LaSource’s Scuba-Yoga program includes three morning dives over a seven-night stay. Divers then participate in Pranayama yoga techniques, meditation exercises and underwater buoyancy lessons, which can help them improve their dive skills while becoming more relaxed while underwater.
New divers who are sometimes apprehensive about diving often use their air more quickly than they would like. They, in particular, may especially benefit from yoga’s meditation exercises to help them better control their breathing.
LaSource is located on secluded Pink Gin Beach on the southern end of Grenada, five minutes from its international airport. The resort’s 100 guest rooms are located in a tropical garden setting surrounded by the sea on three sides. LaSource’s four restaurants and three bars serve delicious food and drink under the direction of an award-winning chef.
The resort features three pools, a nine hole golf course, and architectural design of the first order. A luxury all-inclusive holiday at LaSource includes a complimentary daily spa treatment, scuba dive for certified divers (plus lessons for beginners), fine food and drink, water sports, golf on a private executive course, exercise classes, yoga, Tai Chi, meditation, and nightly entertainment. Being liberated from concern for what all these activities cost is part of the LaSource relaxation.
