Yoram Zekri is today’s guest. With more than 30 years experience in the freediving life, more than 22 years as a freediving educator and a long history of competitive diving and development of the sport as we know it today, Yoram is thoroughly embedded in freediving culture.

His freediving centre in Amed, Bali, Ocean Prana, is a wonderful place, with a village of bungalows for accommodation, decks and rooms for yoga, working out and classrooms, a healthy food restaurant and a beautiful 25m long, dedicated freediving pool, all a stone’s throw from the waters of Jemeluk Bay in Bali’s tranquil and remote north-eastern coast.
