Celebrity freediving champion Guillaume Néry is hosting a series of freediving workshops and events, to be held in the Philippines throughout July and August of this year.

Néry is a multiple world record holder and twice world champion for freediving. Many people who do not follow the sport will recognise his iconic 'underwater base jump' at Dean's Blue Hole. He's also featured in Beyonce and Naughty Boy's video for their song Runnin' (Lose It All).

As part of the expedition to promote the Philippines as a premier destination for freediving, the workshops will range across a selection of locations noted for their freediving, such as Mactan, Malapascua and Moalboal on the island of Cebu, El Nido and Coron, and Surigao del Norte located on Siargo.

Two three-day workshops will be conducted in Mactan (15 - 17 July) and Moalboal (4 - 6 August).

Other activities such as a press conference, meet and greet, yoga workshops and the presentation of movies and documentaries about freediving will also be included in the event.
