FEARLESS SERENITY | LUXURY RETREAT
With crystal-clear waters and a variety of marine life, reefs and shipwrecks, the Bahamas is one of the world’s premier destinations for scuba diving and shark tourism.
The Bahamas consists of about 700 islands and cays with 30 of those islands being inhabited. This makes the Bahamas the perfect place to go island-hopping and enjoy breathtaking views that will captivate your soul.
Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas and is the popular destination for those traveling to the island. It is the 11th largest island in the archipelago of 700 islands and Cays. The history of Nassau dates as far back as 1718, when The Bahamas was populated mainly of pirates. (Cool right! - ARRRR matey)
From Nassau, you can easily travel to the small islands, each of which has its own unique features. These outer islands will touch your hearts in ways you won't be able to explain, with welcoming locals, rich culture and the most beautiful beaches on the planet.
With calm, warm, crystal blue waters and 300 days of sunshine, travelers have several beaches to choose from in Nassau, The Bahamas to suit their own personal preferences. Heading West of the island, Junkanoo Beach, Sanders Beach, Goodman's Bay Beach, Cable Beach and Orange Hill Beach. Orange Hill Beach is located a hop skip and a jump away (literally in front of the retreats guest house) from retreats accommodations is home to the most beautiful sunsets you will see in your entire lifetime.
Fearless Serenity | The Adventure - Strengthen Your Body and Mind
Fearless Serenity Retreats are designed to face those fears of sharks head on while bringing a sense of peace throughout our yoga sessions. Yoga and Scuba Diving are the perfect pair when it comes to breathing techniques, relaxation and creating a meditative mind. It is said that “ Diving, like yoga, is a special experience that can only take place in present tense, and practicing yoga and scuba together can make you better at both. With so many core similarities, yoga and scuba diving truly are the perfect complement to one another.
Embark on an adventure that you will remember for a lifetime. Imagine jumping into the crystal clear waters surrounded by sharks as you explore ship wrecks and the tongue of the Atlantic Ocean. Does the thought of this scare you? Is your heart beating out of your chest? As Humans we are often afraid of things and circumstances that we know little about or haven't’ tried before. A Fear of sharks is rooted in the brain. We see it all around us on social media and television and naturally we gravitate to the negative vibes given about these mysterious creatures. The more knowledge you have the less fear you will be allowed.
In the physical world, Sharks glide through the water with a finesse unlike any other. Spiritually, they are a sign of overcoming fearfulness and embracing power with grace. During this retreat, you will experience exactly that. Each day’s itinerary has been carefully crafted to prepare you for an experience of a lifetime. Be surrounded by an abundance of Caribbean Reef Sharks in one of the most beautiful dive sites in the world.
