Blue Mind Retreat

Plymouth

Join SWSUP//MAI Adventures for an unforgettable day filled with SUP adventures, yoga, wild swimming and mindfulness at the Royal William Yard. To be close to – or submerged in – water is to feel present in the moment and engaged with the world, a state of being called ‘the Blue Mind’. Through the benefits of the 'Blue Mind', you will leave feeling more energised, calmer, less stressed and with improved overall performance.

'Water quiets all the noise, all the distractions, and connects you to your own thoughts' - Wallace J Nichols

Our schedule will be dictated by the tide and conditions but a provisional plan for your day will include:

● Welcome and introduction to 'blue mind' thinking with coffee and a pastry from The Shack

● Start the day with a flowing, energising yoga practice.

● After changing into suitable SUP clothing or wetsuit you will get individualised SUP coaching from our experienced instructors in the beautiful Firestone Bay.

● You are now prepared for a stunning coastal or river journey from our unique Royal William Yard location. We will pack a light meal to enjoy at a secluded picnic spot by the water.

● When you return the day will be capped with an invigorating wild swim, wetsuit optional.

We guarantee the perfect bland of chill and challenge with everything taken care of, leaving you calmer, more creative and in a more connected state of mind.
