Kicking off with two Resilience Breath Workshops in 2022, Anthony Mullally, the ex-rugby player and plant-based fitness fanatic, has partnered with sustainability minded Cornish hotel group Red Hotels. In 2022 Anthony will offer one mixed gender workshop at both the Scarlet and Bedruthan hotels, with 2023 plans including an exclusive series of Men’s Mental Health Retreats.
The first workshop will take place on the 25th November 2022 at Bedruthan Hotel & Spa from 10am to 3pm. During the workshop, participants will be guided on how to build resilience, adapt to adversity and enable better management of everyday stress in a practical and effective way. Using Bedruthan’s sensory spa garden, Anthony will employ cold and heat exposure, putting the body into a stressful state to encourage adaptability and calm as a response to anxiety. The breathwork element of the day will be conducted at Bedruthan’s clifftop yoga studio, followed by a period of reflection with herbal tea and the sound of lapping waves at the hotel’s beach front fire pit.
The second workshop will take place on the 1st December 2022 at Scarlet Hotel & Spa from 10am to 3pm. The ideal location for invigorating the senses, testing the body’s limits and re connecting to nature, Scarlet sits atop the rugged Cornish clifftops and features captivating views of the coastline. Similar to Bedruthan, the class will involve temperature exposure and a guided breathwork session. Participants at Scarlet will enjoy use of the hotel’s natural reed pool and clifftop saunas as part of their training. Benefits of improving breathwork include the ability to ‘down regulate’ and activate the body’s relaxation response, bringing the nervous system back to a state of balance.
