Service Description

Join Lifestyle Fitness Consultants, Carol O’Connor and Heather Schelhase, Pool2lake for an invigorating experience of yoga and cold water wild swimming. The calmness from the yoga and exhilarating high of the cold water immersion is a great combination to reset and recharge. The session will start with a gentle yoga practice including Pranayama (breath work), which is suitable for all levels. The whole workshop and practise has been designed to bring balance to your water element. When your water element is unbalanced, it may lead you to feeling emotionally unstable, dehydrated, feelings of being tense, and stuck. Water nourishes the body and connecting to it during your yoga practice will allow you to strengthen and relax your hips, release tension, and become more flexible and fluid. It will be the perfect preparation (physically, mentally and spiritually) for your cold water swim. Cold water dipping/swimming has many proven scientific benefits including strengthening your immune system, helps reduce inflammation, improves blood flow and cardio vascular health. It also increases endorphins, adrenaline, and serotonin production and it’s absolutely wild crazy fun. During the workshop we will also have a grounding barefoot walking meditation to the river, helping you to connect even more to nature and all its beauty. The cold water swimming /dipping is structured for both beginners & experienced swimmers. You will guided through the steps to help you acclimatise to the water using breathing and mindfulness techniques. It will be done slowly to make sure you are safe and in control throughout the amazing experience.
