Our day starts with sunrise, we hope on the boat and go for Whales scouting across the warm Indian Ocean (30C), the sun is razing while we start to see fountains in the water, then tails appear and the heart start beating high! They are so graceful and wonderful! We admire whales from the boat getting closer and jump in the water with attention and love towards those big mammals! Watch them in the water, swim with them and freedive together! The feeling of being the one with the Universe!




“Longest time to hold the bridge pose (yoga) freediving” by Marina Kazankova!



It’s my 4 th Guinness Record Attempt! The previous 3:

2016 The Longest Underwater Swim in Open Water (Bonaire)

2017 The Longest Underwater Walk (Dubai)

2018 The Longest Underwater Dance on One Breath (Y-40) were validated with Guinness certificates. We need to wait till Guinness will review videos from 3 cameras, witnesses and timekeepers statements, to know the destiny of the 4th.




Dear Marina!

Thank you for the feedback and for your wonderful workshop.

On Sunday we had our national pool championship and I followed your advice. I deconcentrated before and during the countdown. I stopped thinking this was a compétition. I saw it as an adventure. While I was diving I was thinking «let’s find out what I can do, let’s see if I can go a bit further ».

And I did!!

And did a new PB and won and it was a great dive.




Thank you so much!

I wish you all the best and hope to see you again one day somewhere around the world.

Kisses from Athens,





Right after my workshop Sailing and Freediving in Greece I had a wonderful opportunity to lead a workshop with OneBreath team organized by my safety buddy from Miele commercial Dimitris Koumoulos.



We had an amazing time practicing de-concentration out of the water and in the water, working on competition anxiety, streitching, breathing and freediving! I enjoyed a lot the company and going deeper in psychology of every participant! Thank you for your questions, curiosity and desire! See you around the world !

Very interestingly one of the other dancers mentioned how our cells react to the environment and other people around us.

That is what the workshop represented to me. Whilst it is great to understand ones own rhythms being a part of a collective consciousness is more powerful.

I learnt to trust, to lead, to follow, to adapt, to not pre empt and to share and ultimately let go.

The connection with others in the room was pivotal to the experience in times where social boundaries are being implemented more than ever, to still embrace consensual human connection is key. Simply holding hands and then looking at ones own reflection without judging or pouting made sense.

My favourite part was the warm up the freeing and releasing before beginning the waltz. It was great to have had a knowledge of many different types of dance, martial arts and diving as it informed the movement and breathing.

Thank you Benny and Marina for an insightful and joyous workshop.

I found myself doing a little morning dance this am and that has not happened since I was kid.

Goodmorning World!
This morning I woke up happy! Really Happy! And I want to share this happiness with you! I want all of as to open our eyes and to feel how beautiful is to live on this Earth! To hear the birds and the heart singing! To be alive! To dream and to let our dreams come true! To feel protected and curious about surprises that our life prepare for us! Everything that happens to us has it's own reason, that sometimes we can't understand at the beginning! We think why is it happening to me? Why should I suffer? Actually, there is no reason to suffer, no matter what! There is only the reason to be happy and take it easy, like an interesting game! To play with yourself and the world like kids do, to breath and to find your way! Just look for your way to self-realization and happiness and help others! Love!

Workshop of psychological preparation for freediving, sports and competitions.

Each workshop has it's own soul! This one had a very special soul full of love and friendship! Meditations and psychological techniques were so powerful and relaxing made all together. I had an insite during our sound deconcentration. I learn so much from my talented students!

Miami 06.30-07.02 2 2

Claire, Ricardo, Hugo, Alexey are all pearls of people with so many talents and it was my greatest pleasure to see how they feel and use the knowledge they've got at the workshop. The final freedive in the ocean close to Miami was so relaxing and happy for each of us! I'll be back to Miami soon for a new workshop! Already missing you!


I wanted to find the signal to stop my dive. The relaxation and de-concentration allowed me to listen to my body during my dive and connect with my signal

Сlaire National Record Holder:

I am never 100% into my dives and i wanted to find a way to be in the moment. The "tumbling-massage" exercise in the pool made me feel like nothing else matters and enjoy the moment. Just like when I was a little kid and playing around in the water. Also learned to see internally and this is really a revelation that i will take in all my dives and in life. Merci!!


It was outstanding course. We were given one-on-one attention. The suggested mediation techniques improved my performance and enjoyment of freediving. I was very satisfied with the course and highly recommend it for any freediver.

Beautiful experience of underwater flight in the horizontal ocean waterfall!) with the low tight the water goes down, but the coral traps it and there are only tiny channels where it can pass down, and this channels become waterfalls that you can dive from the top to the bottom in a very high speed flying over the corals with small fishes that are having fun with this roller coast too!)))

1st day of workshop of psychological preparation for immersion.
I'm really happy to have the possibility to share my loved techniques with my loved persons in my loved city)

novogodnijj-tur-na-gavajji-nedelya-v-rayu 1Freedive Paradise is pleased to announce that one of Russia's top competitors, Marina Kazankova, will be joining us for the competition in August! Marina is an Italian/Russian actress, freediving world champion and instructor, and sports psychologist. At the Caribbean Cup Freediving Competition last month Kurt and Mandy took advantage of the opportunity to join Marina's workshop on psychological preparation for freediving and competition. Since Marina is now based in LA to pursue acting, we convinced her to make the short hop over to Hawai'i to share her knowledge with the rest of the dive community here!

Opportunities to learn about psychological elements of freediving such as meditation and yoga are almost nonexistent in Hawai'i. I became especially interested in this aspect of freediving on hearing of Natalia Molchanova's 'deconcentration' techniques (, which is apparently utilized by many of the top Russian athletes. This is one of several valuable topics Marina addresses in her workshop!

Marina's impressive performances in recent competitions demonstrate her prowess at managing the mind in competitive circumstances. But now she is carrying her enlightenment to her performances in a different arena, as that of an actress in Hollywood. Here she is performing the longest breath-hold ever in a music video! (

Marina will be offering her workshop in Kona August 18 - 20, the days preceding the competition, so that competitors may practice and take advantage of their newfound mental techniques during the comp. But her workshop will be open to non-competitors as well! Please send us or Marina a message to request her workshop outline, and to otherwise ask any questions or reserve your spot!


FullSizeRenderToday I've did the longest in the world underwater music video in one tape 4.02! Had a great time with a great crew!)
Will be ready in a couple of weeks!)

photo kelly reiter 2Authenticity is the key to connection. You must know how to use your voice to communicate your intention. In order to align your intention with your speech, you have to know how to breathe. Your breath is the foundation of your message.

Kelly Carranza (The Speech Trainer) is proud to introduce world-renowned free-diver Marina Kazankova to the team. An expert at breath control, she provides a student-centered, engaging and intimate workshop to those who are prepared to explore the power of breathing. We call the workshop Breath Power. We meet every Friday, 12:00 - 2:00pm under the clock at the pier on Manhattan Beach.

Here's what some of last week's participants had to say about the workshop:
"Thank you for sharing these powerful and simple techniques for cleansing, connecting, and strengthening all parts of the breath cycle!"
"I feel more alive with greater awareness of my own body's capacity. Thank you for such an interesting and powerful workshop!"

Please join us this Friday to explore your potential as a public speaker and to expertly configure your voice for what you want to express.
