Our outdoor workouts are carefully crafted to tread as lightly as possible, respecting nature and other woodland users. Short runs are woven between aerobic routines to limit impact on single sites, and sensitive areas are avoided and interpreted where possible.
Classes are delivered to Drum and Bass, Jungle and other carefully curated/created music, following the aerobic curve, via the latest technology. Clients use their own headphones, limiting disruption to others. We encourage the use of (wired) bone conducting headphones, allowing you to experience the sound of nature and music simulatenously. Everyone in class is given a belt clip receiver, which they can plug their own headphones into, and the instructor's voice is broadcast, along with the music via a wireless transmitter.
Stacey Cohen is a fully qualified exercise to music instructor, and sports and forest school first aider. She has been leading groups outdoors, working in environmental education; for a number of years. She is also a performing music artist/maker. In the past, she worked as a Forest School Leader for The National Trust, and as the Marketing Officer for GreenWood Forest Park. She currently leads kids holiday clubs in Highgate Woods for Wild Learning and writes content for SEO, around delivering her unique fitness classes/experiences with adults. She is passionate about the outdoors, fitness, the arts and tech.
She works with a band, performs, releases and produces music. In the late noughties she was part of a performance dance troupe who made their costumes from recycled materials, and empowered women through dance. She has practised yoga since childhood, and loves a wide range of fitness classes from boot camp to hot yoga; and of course dancing to Jungle and DnB. The inspiration to develop an aerobics style dance class to drum and bass, integrated with running and holistic bodywork, came in the mid noughties, when Stacey began integrating jungle workouts into her voice work/music training/practise.
