I’m really excited to partner with Fforest in Cardigan, Wales to bring you Rise Fierce x Glow to bring you morning vinyasa yoga, wild swims, food foraging, women’s circles and restorative evening classes. In the afternoons there will be free time to go to the beach, go for walks, wild swims or try out the sauna. We will also do a bit of give back to the local community with a beach clean up.
During this 5-night retreat, through a balance of yoga, outdoor adventure and relaxation, Sophie will take care of the agenda so you can really let go and enter into retreat mode.
Thrill your adventurous side with cold water surfs and breathtaking views as you hike The Cliffs of Moher, soothe your contemplative side with deeply nourishing vinyasa yoga and mindfulness meditations, and give back to the community with a local beach clean up.
This is your chance to immerse yourself in wild West Ireland, embrace the outdoors and blow away the cobwebs while stretching your body, calming your mind and soothing your soul. The Strength Temple X Rise Fierce three night retreat is co-created and hosted by Sophie Hellyer and Richie Norton. The retreat is open to anyone from total water sport beginners to salty old sea dogs.
