  • To validate your dive during a competition, it is necesary to bring the tag from the bottom plate to proof your performance ! 
It reminds me childhood when we were bringing sand from the bottom to prove our friend that we went all the way down :) 

During the @azul_freediving_challenge we will respect all the rules and standard of @aidafreediving 

Great job @djoulah

Special thanks to the judge @freedive_tulum and @apneacozumel 
Special thanks to the safety team lead by @rodrigosalsas 

2021 edition is happening soon, May 14,15,16th
Big up to @depthwishfreediving and @cressi1946 form making it possible
  • During the @azul_freediving_challenge you will need to respect the @aidafreediving protocol when surfacing ! 
You have 15 seconds to take off your facial equipment, make the Ok sign 👌and say ”i am ok" to validate your dive ! 
Sound easy but it gets harder with very low oxygen ;)

Special thanks to @depthwishfreediving and @cressi1946 for making this coming event possible !
  • Relaxation skills are very important before a dive, always take the time to breathe before holding your breath :)

  • The 70 meters challenge ! 
During the competition we are also organizing the 70m challenge (designed for freedivers that have  PB too high to participate to the competition) with a special price to win 🎁
The goal would be to complete the dive and match the announce dive time ! 
See details on our website www.pranamayamexico.com about the rules :)
What do you think ? Can you plan a dive and make exactly the time that you announced ?

Freediving is not only about learning how to hold your breath but also learning how to breathe.

Julien BordeFounder

PranaMaya is a Freediving school founded by Julien Borde in 2013. Coming to the Mayan Riviera was an obvious choice for us. This region has a lot to offer and is undoubtedly one of the best places for Freediving because of his diversity.

We have access to many dive sites in the Ocean to enjoy the caribbean sea, depth and good temperatures. But what makes this region so unique are the Cenotes. They are like flooded sink Hole with perfect conditions for freediving.

We think that everybody should learn about Freediving. We even believe it should be teach in schools. The main reason is to be safer in the water and be able to enjoy more the reef & the ocean.

At PranaMaya, our courses are done in very small groups, this allows us to adapt to each of you so that you can benefit from an optimal learning experience, whether you are beginner, advanced or confirmed.

Come to Playa Del Carmen, near Cancun and experience Freediving with PranaMaya!

  • That was my third year visiting this amazing team and next year for sure I will visit them again =)… The whole organisation was perfectly done, well received, professional instructors, we felt in any moment super well treated and especially safe. The Pranamaya team knows the best spots and Cenotes in the Yucatan region as they were the first freedivecentre and first explorers of cenotes. Especially this year they have shown to us some incredible unknown cenotes. Warmly to recomment to visit the team. with best regards from Switzerland.
