FREE fitness & wellness weekend EleFit Launches in Elephant & Castle


Over the weekend of 27th & 28th of April, Castle Square in Elephant & Castle will be transformed into a fitness and wellness hub for the first EleFit, a free weekend festival dedicated to celebrating fitness, health and wellbeing.

Stretched over two days, the local community and visitors alike can all take part and enjoy activities and workshops ranging from R&B yoga hosted by Elephant & Castle’s own Gymbox, to Rap Therapy and Rollerpaluzza’s Cycling Challenge.

Other additions to the line-up include two classes hosted by Kristina Rihanoff, world finalist professional ballroom dancer, instructor, choreographer, author, and most well-known as a Strictly Come Dancing star.

Bringing her vast dancing knowledge to Elephant & Castle, Kristina will host ‘Yogicorns’, her unique signature class for babies and toddlers, and a Ballroom and Latin inspired class for children, incorporating the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ favourite, ‘The Salsa!’.

A gong bath to help reduce stress and tension will also be on offer, as well as Gospel House Choir performance with a difference singing classic club tunes and gospel, a Latin dance class, a Lindy Hop taster class and free massages subject to availability.
