Are you up at the crack of dawn? Galway Simon Community will be up before sunrise this summer solstice for their Dip at Dawn at 4.30am on Wednesday June 21, at Salthill Beach.

You are invited to join them for some gentle yoga, followed by a dip in the sea to raise both awareness and funds for those facing homelessness in Galway, Mayo and Roscommon. A spectacular flotilla of Galway Hookers will also be out in the bay to illuminate this unique experience.

Participants will be led in a rejuvenating yoga session, on what is also the International Day of Yoga, by the amazing team at SoulMoves. The yoga involves gentle, mindful movements that are suitable for beginners and people of all ages and abilities.
