LIBERTÉE, administrative and sales director : As daughter of a sailor, grew up in the busy harbour neighbourhood of Nice, “Port de Nice”, and its yacht club dinghies and sailboats, not far from the rocky Coco beach. Her tourism studies led her to travel overseas, and she soon developed a taste for discovery and adventure. She later moved to Paris, where she worked as an international sales rep in the hotel industry. 10 years and many miles later, Libertée moved back to her beloved Mediterrenean and started working as a sales manager for a luxury hotel in Saint-Tropez. Eager to develop alternative, ethical and sustainable tourism for her native region, she then joined the Bluenery team where she occupies the role of manager in charge of development.
ILARIA, instructor: was born in Italy. Despite growing-up surrounded by snowy mountains, she much prefers the sea. She enjoys travelling, especially to sunny places with spicy food and clear blue waters. Ilaria is a freediving instructor and yoga teacher. She is constantly inspired by these two disciplines and is very passionate about teaching them to others.
RICHARD, instructor: Richard started freediving when he was traveling in Asia, and what started as a hobby soon became his passion. Over the years he continued traveling to many beautiful dive sites, like Mexico’s cenotes and Hawaii’s blue lagoons. Going back to his native Alpes and diving in his hometown’s chilly lake took some getting used to, but eventually confirmed how much he loved freediving, no matter the conditions. He decided to turn his passion into his profession and became a certified instructor.Richard combines freediving with yoga, which he also teaches.
A huge thanks to Laleh, Arthur and Mickaël and Bastien for their great help and support in this project.
