Mountain climber and freediver

Kumbhaka Festival

November 2020

Meet some of the world's most inspiring breath holders.

They've excelled in their field because they're not afraid to go beyond their comfort zone. They tread the fine line between life and death; between their inner and outer world; learning to choose wisely and endure extraordinary challenges.

Their stories will show you it is possible to go deep into yourself and your environment. You'll experience breathwork that allows you get high in your mental state, and perhaps boost your ability to climb to the roof of the world.

"You were right, Mr Mayol, this is indeed a shortcut to samadhi"
