22.12.19, Y-40 the deepest pool in the world! Guinness Record Attempt
“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.
Good news from Athens!
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,
Workshop in Greece 19-20.10.19
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 !

Deep Dance Connection Workshop
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.
