Experience coastal swims along Brighton’s pebbled beachfront and delve into restorative yoga practice
Learn new techniques to improve your stroke and get used to deeper seawater, under the escort of expert swim guides and accompanied by like-minded swimmers
Soak up the bohemian vibe of this colourful city in the evenings
For this YogaSwim experience we are based in Brighton, undoubtedly Britain’s most colourful city. Brighton still maintains its bohemian vitality and nothing beats strolling along the seafront promenade or on the pebbly beach that keeps the water surprisingly clear. During the trip you will have the opportunity to swim in the English Channel under the auspices of our experienced swimming guides, as well as enjoy yoga to relax and strengthen the body.
We start each day with yoga practice lead by an experienced instructor. At the end of the day, we’ll unwind and relax tired bodies with a restorative evening yoga class. All swims are of a manageable distance and along with the yoga are based out of SeaLanes, a new activity and leisure complex located close to Brighton Pier.
Who is this trip for?
This trip is designed for swimmers who enjoy yoga, or who want to explore the benefits of yoga and how it naturally complements and enhances your swimming. We swim twice per day in the sea off Brighton beach. Swimmers do not require open water experience but should be capable of completing the average swim distance of 1.5 km prior to the start of the trip. The average daily swim distance is around 2.5 km (split over a minimum of two swims). Like all our yoga and swimming holidays, no prior experience of yoga is required.
We have given this trip a ‘Moderate’ grading. Most swimmers comfortable in the open water will be able to take part and enjoy one of these trips. Sea conditions in the UK can be more demanding than in many of our other destinations but in Brighton you are never far from a shelving beach.
Why yoga and swimming?
Yoga and swimming are a perfect combination. For swimmers, yoga offers both physical and mental benefits. Yoga increases breathing awareness, develops strength and increases mobility, especially if you can work yoga into your daily routine. Through meditation, relaxation and stretching, yoga has incredible restorative qualities, relaxing the nervous system and muscular tension. It can help you centre and focus, and to find the perfect rhythm for your swims.
