About the event
Wednesday 7th June 9:15am - 11:00am
On the beach just south of Big Beach Cafe
Meet on the beach just south of Big Beach Cafe in Hove for a morning sea swim. Before braving the cool waters, we will sit together and set an intention for the day and practice deep breathing to warm up our core and focus the mind. The refreshing activity of sea swimming brings great benefits that kick start our immune systems and boost our thinking process, so that we feel energised and with clarity for what we wish to achive for the day ahead. Those who would like to can continue socialising and networking over breakfast in Big Beach Cafe.
The morning will be overseen by member Claudine NIghtingill-Rane, blue health coach. Claudine has this to say:
"You've probably heard about the benefits of cold water immersion. It is good for our mental health, our immune systems and any kind of inflammation in the body. Dipping into cold water in nature is even better than a cold shower, as you have the added benefit of seeing the vastness of the horizon, meditative motion of the sea, and connecting with something so much bigger than yourself. Add in some good company, and you have an experience which will bring you joy: mind, body and soul.2
Claudine is a blue health, body image and mindset coach, so if something is stopping you from dipping, she can help. Whether it be how you feel in a swimsuit, a fear of the cold, or being scared of what is in the ocean, she will coach you through and get you in. What she isn't is a doctor, swimming coach or a lifeguard, so you swim at your own risk and are responsible for your own health and wellbeing. If conditions aren't suitable, we will advise not to go in the sea.
What to bring:
Swim shoes, gloves, and hat
Bottle of water/snacks
