Thrive, Groove Festival’s all new health, fitness and wellness precinct, offers festival goers the chance to relax, rejuvenate and reenergise the mind, body and soul through our weekend program of over 35 free movement classes, wellness workshops and inspirational talks.
Featuring over 20 leading names from the world of health, fitness and wellness, including Derval O’Rourke, Roz Purcell and Andrea Hayes, the broad program promises to challenge, excite and inspire.
Set in a secluded woodland sanctuary within Killruddery’s gardens, Groove Festival goers can find their flow in a gentle yoga class, let their hair down in a vibrant dance class, or take a seat at the Thrive Talks Stage to discover the secrets to nourishing the body and mind inside and out. Then it’s time to dance the night away to Groove Festival’s stellar line up of top international and local music acts, tuck into wholesome festival fayre, and discover all that the new and improved festival has to offer.
Whatever you choose, there’s room for you to restore, breathe and feel alive.
If you’re excited by health, fitness and wellness Thrive is the place for you.
Activity in the Thrive precinct will run from 11am to 7pm over the two days of Groove Festival this August 19 & 20. Access to Thrive and participation at all of its events is included within the price of your Groove Festival ticket.
Whether you are a well-seasoned yogi or have yet to unroll your mat, you will find the perfect session for you with Thrive’s schedule of classes and workshops. Fitness, yogis and pilates experts will lead visitors through guided sessions of mindful movement to balance the body and the mind.
Refuel between classes with Thrive’s array of healthy food and drink vendors. Throughout the day at Thrive, a line up of top chefs including Sunil Ghai and Gearóid Lynch will share tips and tricks for healthy eating and cooking at home.
