Timetable: Our Perfect Day At WellFest 2015

18th Sep 2015

Tomorrow, the much anticipated inaugural WellFest takes to Dublin’s Herbert Park, sure to be a hit with wellness junkies nationwide.

With a wealth of classes, workshops and seminars taking place over the course of nine hours, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Whether you’re hoping to become inspired by a new fitness regime or you simply want to hear the wise words of various experts, there’s a lot to gain from this exciting programme. Just recently, they released their timetable, packed to the brim with activities worth checking out, but obviously you can’t be everywhere at once. Below we outline what takes our fancy from breakfast time right through to close of business.

To kick off proceedings, we’d be most likely to ease ourselves in by getting our minds in the right space. Naomi Sturdy’s ‘Zen in the City’ WellTalk at 10 am is just the ticket, followed by some energising Hatha Yoga with YogaHub at 10.30.

At this point, we’ll be needing some mid-morning fuel, so any of the WellFood areas will hit the spot. At 11.35 it’s back for some Vinyasa yoga with Deirdre Murphy, to warm up the muscles ahead of Heather Gordon’s Piloxing Knockout (at present we know nothing of what this class involves but are super eager to find out) at the WellStage at 12.

By now, depending on your fitness levels, you may or may not be flummoxed, so it’s time to kick back at the WellTalk tent with the Body Image and Self Love talk by Sarah Doyle at 2.15. A mobility and stretching workshop with Chris Feld at 3 pm will work wonders to soothe our aching muscles after all the morning’s activity.

As major yoga enthusiasts, we’d be too tempted to miss the wind down yoga and mindfulness session at 4 pm but we’ll be scrambling to finish this on time in order to make Niall Breslin’s talk at 4.45 on a more resilient Ireland.

Of course this is just a taster of how you might spend your day at WellFest; you could decide to begin your day with some hardcore classes and leave your afternoon free for talks and food, but that’s the beauty of this programme, you can tailor your day to suit your own personal interests.

Check out the full timetable below and don’t forget to book your tickets, €35 per person at wellfest.ie.
