A feel good day with a focus on food and fitness will take place at Fernhill House Hotel and Gardens in Clonakilty on October 7. The aim of ‘Clon Revive’ is to restore mind and body with a fun selection of classes and workshops organised including yoga, pilates, mindfulness HIIT, nutrition, fermentation fun, a cookery demonstration and lots more. The entire day will be MC’d by up-and-coming comedian Julie Jay and promises to be a lot of fun.

Participants will be met on the day with a fresh juice reception and can then can pick up their luxury 12mm thick Pilates mat, which is ideal for use at home or in studio for yoga, pilates or stretching. They can look forward to enjoying a satisfying and healthy lunch cooked in the highly-regarded Fernhill kitchen and there will also be extra treats and surprises throughout the day.

The brainchild of Lowry O’Mahony (MaxPhysio) and Emma Forrest (The Gut HQ), Clon Revive will teach the benefit of diet and exercise, emphasising how enjoyable and easy it can be to live a healthy lifestyle.

“In my daily practice as a clinician I am constantly meeting clients who would love to know more about healthy eating, mindfulness, mediation, yoga and pilates but they do not always have the confidence to know how to begin their journey to a healthier day to day life.”

“In particular stress and anxiety is so prevalent and I do not think we are well-equipped to deal with it so I wanted to create an event that would allow people to learn some new skills or tricks that could have a positive outcome on their day to day like and also have a bit of fun.”

I love these kinds of events but you always have to travel to Dublin or other big cities to get to them,” explains Emma.

Lowry is a Chartered Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor with 10 years’ experience. She is passionate about empowering her clients to successfully manage illness and injury and improve their quality of life through increasing strength, flexibility and balance. MaxPhysio provides the tools to reduce risk of injury through Pilates, education and strength programmes, as well as hands on manual therapy when you do have an injury.

Emma Forrest is a qualified nutritional therapist concentrating on making the connection between the gut and mood, digestion, joints, hormones and weight. Focusing on local, sustainable food and manageable lifestyle changes, she helps clients form healthier habits.

“We want people to enjoy themselves, kick back, relax and have a good laugh! I hope that everybody who partakes will be inspired by what they have heard and will leave knowing how to manage their day-to-day stresses a little bit better and also how to incorporate a little bit of exercise into their day, as well as good nutrition.”

The event caters for all fitness levels; Max and Emma have organised the schedule in such a way that participants don’t have to attend the exercise classes if that’s what they would prefer.
