- WOW Swims
Yoga and swimming are a natural fit, with both activities helping to coordinate breath, body and mind. The aim of this session is to help you lengthen and strengthen muscles, improve mobility, build mental focus, and become more confident in the water. Stretch & Swim will start with a 30 minute yoga class to activate your body and mind before commencing a coached open water swimming session.
Who can Attend?
The session will cater for beginner yogis and swimmers, and those who are more confident and would like to challenge themselves. Participants must be over 18 years old and be able to swim at least 50m of freestyle unassisted in the open water.
What do I Wear?
Please wear comfortable clothing for yoga, and bring your own bathers, towel, goggles and water bottle. There will be short break between the yoga and swimming part of the session, so participants can move from the yoga session to the beach and get changed if necessary.
What do I Bring?
Participants are encouraged to bring their own yoga mat; however, a few mats will be available for participants to borrow upon request. Participants need to bring goggles, bathers, a towel, and warm clothes to change into after the swim session. Participants are encouraged to wear a wetsuit or rash vest if the water temperature is cool.
How much does it Cost?
Stretch and swim is $15 for Masters Swimming WA members and $20 for Non-MSWA members.

Stretch & Swim will be led by Ryan Medrana, Yoga Instructor at Vai Yoga in Morley and Masters Club Coach at the Belmont Masters Swimming Club. If you have any queries about the session, please email Ryan at email@example.com or Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org
