Festival Wellness Program

Energize and Electrify Your Festival With Wellness

As a Certified Health Coach, Certified Personal Trainer and huge live music fan, Lisa Shanken is uniquely qualified to program a full range of awesome wellness activities for your festival. 

What Do You Want To See At Your Festival?

My programming is designed to be consistent with the festival vibe, yet incorporate fresh and unique ideas to differentiate your festival in the increasingly competitive festival space. 

As I've done for several years at Vertex, Camp Bisco, and The Peach Music Festival, the key to a successful wellness program is customizing the program.

Following is a sampling of workshops and activities to consider including in your festival's wellness program.

Participants will have more fun, feel great, and maintain their stamina for a rigorous weekend of music and dancing!

Keep The Fans Limber & Loose

  • Deliver the benefits of stretching to fans, artists, and crew with short (5-10m), fun, and themed sessions.
  • Focus on the most punished areas during a festival (legs, back, and feet).
  • Designed to be unobtrustive on stage, during crew changeovers, and within the festival schedule.

Reenergize Fans During The Festival

  • 20-30 minute stretching and yoga workshops (different than morning yoga) held right before the music begins in the late afternoon
