Wellness @ ALSO 2021
After a year of stillness, we’re inviting you to move, move, move your body at ALSO21.
Biologist Caroline Williams will be making the case for upping the movement in our lives, and there will be many, many immersive MOVE sessions throughout the festival as we bring this most excellent scientific research to pratical use.
Begin the day as you mean to go on. Hold your lion pose at Yoga. Come into the now with the ancient Chinese art of Tai Chi.?? Move and meditate as you practice the gentle power of Qi Gong, or mindfully unwind during Pilates.
The lake takes centre stage in the afternoon. Wild swimming sessions open to all 2-4pm Saturday and Sunday. Our lake is a quarter of a mile wide and was designed by landscape architect Capability Brown to help understand the power of nature and to bliss us out. Ice water swimming champion Caroline Saxon will help you get your head round wild swimming and lead a couple of sessions so if you haven't before, so please, be our guest, dive in!??
As the sun sets, it is time to dance. Take to the Rum Shack or the Woods for your best freestyle moves. Need more dance - Fiona Ring unleashes your power with a Charleson party, and relives the 80s with our FAME workshop, and Sohan Kailey teaches Bangra to adults and Bhangra Rave for kids. Get involved, and yes I'm looking at you Alpha Males!
Want to go deeper and wilder? We have invited the UK's leading outdoor movement expert Ben Medder - who will be offering a number of workshops for you.
There's lots for little movers and shakers, Debutots and Playbox offer interactive stories with plenty of dramatic play and movement thrown in for good measure. Our fun-packed Early Years Drama sessions are enjoyed by grown-ups as much as they are by their children, and promote communication and confidence along the way.
The ALSO Running Club is back for 2021. Decide whether you want to join our 5k or 10k and start your morning with a run round our gorgeous Warwickshire countryside.?
And ALSO CYCLE is go. Could you join the group to ride from Oxford from the site as we start to encourage biking to ALSO Festival? We've test ridden it, and it's pretty....
We have one more week of our 'glamps' at their current cost, our workshops are starting to fill up, and there is plenty more programming still to come....
