Do you fancy trying something new or completely out of your comfort zone? If you’ve exercised, done yoga or meditated, imagine having that great feeling of all three at once!
We visited the guys down at Liverpool Watersports Centre which has been recently fully refurbished to a very high standard.
Activities include power boating, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaks, canoeing, sailing to name a few and an it even has an aqua park. We opted for the open water swimming.
We've even incorporated the paddle boarding into our Eudaemonia retreats which was really fun! Find out more information about our retreats here - https://www.liverpoolhealthandwellbeing.com/eudaemonia-retreat
There are courses on offer that you can take and even attach a float if you’re not too confident in the open water. Breathing is key though, throughout. That initial skin to water is cold, but only for the first minute. Once you’ve started the swim you quickly get used to the water and it almost like time doesn’t exists as you swim around the dock at your own pace. Overall, it's just a great experience in the water and the staff were spot on, very helpful. That ‘Zen’ feeling came around 2 hours later and it’s safe to say we slept like a baby. It was an absolutely fantastic day and experience and would highly recommend it!
Here's a pic of Ethan & I looking cool AF in goggles and swimming cap.

It's definitely something to give a go, so much fun, exhilarating, it has boss facilities and will leave you with nothing but good endorphins.
