Train Body Brain: Mindful HIIT for Teenage Girls 10.00 - 10.45

FH Inspires: Saturday 10.00 - 10.45

mindful HIIT for Teenage Girls

We are so very proud to be welcoming Wendy MacLennan and the amazing creation that is 'Train Body Brain'.  Designed specifically for teenage girls, Train Body Brain is unique in its combination of high intensity interval training (HIIT) and mindfulness.  It's tough to be a teen in our modern world and Wendy's special workout - featuring big tunes, powerful mantras & breath work - will help you free your mind from the anxieties & pressures of teenage life.

"It’s not about being skinny, or conforming to today’s rampant idea of ‘perfection’. The Train Body Brain Method is about how exercise can make you FEEL rather than how it makes you LOOK. Girls leave feeling strong in their bodies and more resilient in their minds. It's about looking after your bodies and brains and empowering YOU, so you can go out and face the world and be your own super hero!"

* This class is for teenagers only.  It is free to join, but we ask that you email wendy@trainbodyandbrain.com to let her know you're coming.

FH INSPIRES: SATURDAY 14.00 - 14.45

BUSINESS STORIES

We are so proud to have gathered together these four inspiring women to come and talk about their entreprenerial experiences in the world of wellbeing.  And as if that's not enough, they will be hosted by Susannah Taylor, founder of the mighty health & beauty magazine Get The Gloss.

A wellness and nutrition expert, Jasmine Hemsley has inspired a global audience to shift  their perspectives on food and lifestyle as a founder of Hemsley + Hemsley.  Jasmine champions the concept of eating well to look and feel your very best. With a passion for home-cooked food and natural remedies, she has captured the attention of a vast global audience, and uses her platform as an author and influencer to encourage a return to a simpler, more mindful everyday life.

Working in collaboration with her partner, renowned photographer Nick Hopper, Jasmine's latest venture is East by West, a Pop-Up café, sitting within the Maiyet Concept Store in the vibrant heart of London’s Mayfair.  Building on the success of the Hemsley + Hemsley café at Selfridges, East by West is a personal passion project presenting Jasmine's accessible and grounded food philosophy. 

Founder and innovator Kara Rosen launched award-winning British brand Plenish in 2012, providing great-tasting, power-packed drinks to fuel full-on lifestyles.

A regular juicer back in New York, Kara struggled to find an organic, nutrient-rich juice cleanse that was not loaded with sugar-laden fruits and vegetables in the UK. Frustrated with the lack of integrity in most products on the supermarket shelves, she invested time in understanding sourcing and production: dreaming up a new kind of product, which would contain only organic, fresh ingredients, a real step change from the traditional ‘big food’ companies. 

Growing the Plenish brand from a small, niche e-commerce business to one of the leading healthy drinks brands in the UK has been an absolute labour of love, harnessing Kara’s passion and raw ambition.

Jane Gottschalk is a woman of many talents. Not only is she Co-Founder and Executive Director of Jax Coco, Creative Director of Perfect Moment Ski & Surf Wear, and Executive Director of OhSo Probiotic Chocolate, she is also an Animals Asia Ambassador. In addition to being a successful, inspiring entrepreneur, Jane is mother to five active young children. 

Jax Coco was born after noticing a lack of healthy, no added sugar drinks.  Passionate about healthy living, Jane spent time sourcing the best coconuts from the Philippines creating Jax Coco’s signature taste and capturing it in Jax Coco’s iconic, stylish glass bottle.  In 2011, Jax Coco officially launched in Hong Kong & London.  Since then, Jax Coco has transformed into a global brand that provides an innovative range of premium coconut products, packaged within a minimalistic design aesthetic, to fit with positive modern lifestyles. 

Jennifer Irvine is a true food revolutionary, using her love of food and passion for the freshest quality ingredients to change the lives of thousands of people, including many notable stars. Through her companies, The Pure Package, and recently launched Balance Box, plus the release of her recipe book – The Diet for Food Lovers – Jennifer’s delicious, nutritious and perfectly balanced meals have helped thousands of clients to get in shape for the beach, a new movie or post-baby, and the response has always been the same: this feels like anything but a diet!

GIVE AS GOOD AS YOU GET: WITH CHANGE PLEASE, RUBIES IN THE RUBBLE & GOOD GYM 16.00 - 16.45

GIVE AS GOOD AS YOU GET

Running your own business is hard enough, but imagine prioritising everyone else but yourself in the process. Come and listen to these selfless entrepreneurs whose mission it is to make a change.  We are so proud to welcome the brains behind three social enterprises, Change Please, Good Gym and Rubies in the Rubble to discuss their businesses since their inception and their plans moving forward.

LAURENCE HIGGENS

Since finishing university, Laurence has spent all of his working life in the voluntary sector; managing small to medium community organisations.

He has also spent time as a Trustee of various organisations supporting their development and organisation.

Laurence has long been interested in the world of social enterprise as a means for solving some of the issues that we all face in society. He like the simple model of employment and homelessness at Change Please and was very keen to help build and develop a new organisation working with some of the most marginalised people.”

JENNY COSTA

Jenny Costa (nee Dawson) is the founder of Rubies in the Rubble, an award-winning, a food brand with a tasty solution to farm produce that would otherwise be discarded - their ingredients have to pass a taste test, not a beauty contest. It doesn’t matter if they’re too big, too ripe or just plain pear-shaped. Rubies turns these superstars into delicious relishes, sauces and compotes, winning two great taste awards this year.

The idea for Rubies in the Rubble came after visiting New Spitalfields food market and noticing edible fruit and vegetables were being thrown away if not sold. Jenny became passionate about encouraging sustainable consumption and preventing good food from going to waste.

After graduating with an MA in Mathematics and Economics in 2008 Jenny worked at Odey Asset Management for 2 years. However, having always had a heart for sustainability and good food, she left in 2011 to launch the food brand ‘Rubies in the Rubble’.

You can find Rubies in Waitrose, Ocado, Fortnum & Mason, COOK, EAT, on Virgin Trains, in delis around the country and still every Saturday at our original stall at Borough Market. 

ALEX KENMORE - Head of Business Development, Good Gym

Alex has been leading on the expansion of GoodGym across the UK since January 2016 and in addition has been running and volunteering with GoodGym since April 2013. He is responsible for liaising with local public sector and private partners to invest in new GoodGyms across the UK that have the best impact possible for their local communities. Prior to GoodGym, Alex spent nearly ten years in local government across a range of performance and strategy roles and has a passion for initiatives that strengthen individual and community resilience.

GOOD GYM

GoodGym is a community of runners that combines getting fit with doing good. We stop off on our runs to do physical tasks for community organisations and to support isolated older people with social visits and one-off tasks they can’t do on their own. It’s a great way to get fit, meet new people and do some good. As long as you’re up for getting sweaty, everyone’s welcome. You can run in a group to help local community organisations, do one-off physical tasks for older people or run regularly to visit an isolated older person
