One event on April 28, 2019 at 11:00 am
Over the weekend of 27th & 28th of April, Castle Square in Elephant & Castle will be transformed into a fitness and wellness haven for the first EleFit, a free weekend festival dedicated to celebrating health and wellbeing. Stretched over two days, the local community and visitors alike can all take part and enjoy activities and workshops ranging from R&B yoga hosted by Elephant & Castle’s own Gymbox, to Rap Therapy and Rollerpaluzza’s Cycling Challenge.
Saturday will offer alternative and unique upbeat activities, suitable for all ages, whether it be cheerleading class for the over 65’s, courtesy of Castle Leisure and Silverfit, or face painting and raving for the children. Guests can also be taken back in time for Ministry of Sound’s 80’s Fitness Dance Workout, a fun, high-intensity full body workout class, celebrating all things lycra and day-glow!
Sunday will see a more serene line up, focusing on meditation and mental wellbeing. Visitors can begin their day with a morning meditation session with the Tibetan Buddhist Centre and can absorb the inspiring words of Pro PT, London based personal trainers who have turned their lives around for the better through fitness and are now training London’s top influencers.
There will also be a performance on Sunday from a choir group with a self-described genre of ‘a bit of House, a bit of Gospel and a whole lot of Choir’. They have performed at past events including Latitude Festival, Bestival and Love Saves The Day among many others.
In addition to the range of classes on offer, guests get the chance to sample free delicious smoothies from the UK’s favourite healthy little drinks brand innocent, and local restaurant Tupi will be selling healthy treats with a Latin American twist. After an energetic class, visitors can also get a boost from BLOCKHEAD, the sugar-free energy gum who will be providing free samples, and healthy coffee alternatives including matcha and turmeric lattes provided by Hej Coffee in their newly launched ‘Ernie milk float’.
