Fit Farm Festival

Talks & Workshops


As well as our fitness and yoga classes, we have some wonderful local businesses who will be stationed here all day offering speciality workshops. These will be smaller, more intimate sessions that give you the opportunity to get some first hand teaching on a variety of incredible activities. If you’ve never tried CrossFit, this is your chance to find out what it’s all about. Or if you fancy a break from the action, settle down with a creativity class. Go flying with Grace & Gravity and hang in the air to try aerial yoga. If you haven’t tried Barre before, this is your chance to experience this unique combination of pilates and ballet with the awesome Katie. Or take a stroll around the farm with Jackie and learn how to take the perfect photo. Or leave your comfort zone entirely and give your vocals chords a workout with Carmen. Not enough? We also have specialist boxing and deadlifting sessions with the Project PT.

As well as practical workshops there will be some enlightening talks centred around Health & Wellness. Take a breath, have a seat and listen to experts in their field enlighten you on some fascinating subjects

Workshops


CrossFit with Priority 6

CrossFit define fitness as being competent in all the 10 components of fitness. CrossFit is a ‘strength and conditioning system built on constantly varied, functional movements executed at high and controlled intensity’.

In these workshops Priority 6 will introduce you to the world of CrossFit, teaching you new skills and challenging you in new ways. They may even finish you off with a WOD (workout of the day) to really get you working to your max.

Creativity

Everybody Studio are here to get your creative juices flowing. This workshop will get you honing in on your passions and will then help you to express them in a creative and productive way. This is your opportunity to really reflect on yourself: what brings you joy? What makes you spark? How can you bring more creativity in to your day to day life? Everybody Studio will guide you there.

SUP (Stand Up Paddle Boarding)

Yes, that’s right…we also have Stand Up Paddle Boarding here at the Festival.

Moi will be running workshops in her giant inflatable pool all throughout the day.

“Being on the water is my ‘happy place’. It’s a place where I can forget the chores, the bills, the endless ‘to do’ list, the emails, the responsibilities of life!

It gives me time to breathe, to relax, to clear my head and to enjoy the natural environment. It’s no surprise that being in the outdoors doing gentle physical activity naturally releases our endorphins – our happy hormones 😊 Combine that with the gentle healing sounds and movement of water and we have the ideal tonic for nourishing our mind, body and soul.”

…it’s clear from her philosophy that Moira will fit in perfectly as part of our festival team! These sessions are going to be spectacular.

You will need to book these in advance so that Moi can let you know what to bring.

BOOKING OPENS 6TH JUNE

Aerial Yoga with Grace & Gravity

When was the last time you hung out, upside down?  We’re talking fully supported and suspended in the air upside down, with a new found sense of freedom. Welcome to Aerial Yoga with Grace & Gravity…It’s just a few feet off the ground, and it can turn your practice on its head, literally!

Fancy trying an aerial Sun salutations or Downward Dog? Adding a hammock to your practice is a great way to mix up your routine and add a new challenge to a familiar pose.  The hammock can offer additional support when needed, as well as assisting a deeper stretch in poses you’re more comfortable with. It’s a great way to build strength and confidence and most importantly it’s fun, something which we seem to lose a little as adults.

Barre

Experience Barre with Katie Johnson of Barre Set: a blend of Pilates, Yoga and strength training moves. The class is low impact, focusing on a flow of high repetition exercises that are designed for beginners to help you feeling longer, leaner and stronger. The class also includes a stretch sequence to help improve flexibility and help bring calm to your day.

Photography with Jackie Cross

If you are keen to move away from your automatic settings then this photography workshop is for you.

Whether you are a complete beginner, or a keen photographer looking to up your game,  Jackie will be able to give you a taster of her professional knowledge and experience.

She will take you on a tour of the farm and en route you will learn skills and put them straight in to practice capturing the beauty of the countryside around you.

This is the only workshop that needs advanced booking as Jackie will need to give you some information in advance and you’ll need to bring along a camera.

Spaces are limited so click here to contact Jackie and book your space.

Ever been intimidated by the bar bell section of the gym? Don’t worry, we have all been there! But anyone can use the bars to improve their strength and conditioning if they know how. These 45 minute workshops with The Project PT will leave you with the knowledge, skill and most importantly, confidence to go back to the gym and start building those deadlifts.
