Goa launches wellness festival

PANJIM, India, 8 January  2018: Sahyadri Wellness & Educational Foundation is organising the GoaWellnessFest as a five-day retreat of mindfulness, physical well-being and food-based detox.

The festival will be held 24 to 28 January at The International Center, Dona-Paula, Panjim, Goa.

The Fest has Yoga Alliance (USA) certified instructors, food and grain experts from around the world and certified nutritionists, therapists and instructors from prestigious healing centres in Kerala, Goa and Malnad.

The GoaWellnessFestival recognises the need to reconnect to creativity and tap restorative practices.

In addition, the festivals offers three hours of daily enrichment activities to learn the basic skills of pottery making, stress-buster cooking, detox healing, eye exercises and cleansing training.

“The Wellness Festival shows how small changes in daily life can bring substantial changes in lifestyle disorders, relieve detrimental habits and spread a spirit of well-being around everyone,” says the organiser Nithya Somanath.

“Goa has been long known for its partying culture and recreational stimulators, we strive to change this image with our flagship event organised at The International Center, Dona Paula, Panjim, North Goa. Away from the hustle-bustle of the city and touristy attractions, yet well connected, this location serves as an excellent destination for the five days of herbal therapies, yoga & organic super foods.”

Goa’s tourism ministry is promoting events and festivities as part of a wider policy to widen the appeal beyond beaches and parties.
