A qualified physiotherapist, Shervin discovered his love for climbing and canyoning – as well as all other sports – early in life. A natural teacher with a zen practice and presence, he came up as a sports instructor before his interest in healing led him to his physiotherapy master degree. His love of nature and the deep tranquility of the spaces where rocks meet water brought him to Corsica, where he has been a canyoning and climbing instructor for more than 10 years.
