The three-day wellness festival will leave revelers glowing, revitalized and enlightened about mental and physical health. London's Old Truman Brewery will be transformed into a hub of workshops, activities, ath-leisure and nutrient-rich pop-up restaurants.
Find the work-out to make you fall in love with exercise as the stars of the fitness industry take it in turns to lead classes on the Main Stage. There's diva-style dance from Boss's Bonnie Parsons, high-octane cardio courtesy of Ministry of Sound, restorative yoga from Mind Body Bowl's Annie Clarke and much more. Plus there are boutique mini studios where you can experience some of London's chicest gyms, including Barry's Bootcamp, Boom Cycle and Another_Space.
Flex and stretch your mind with the programme of talks in The LAB, where you can learn the art of mindfulness, the fundamentals of achieving a healthy relationship with food or even the tips and tricks required to turn social media into your job. At the Career Clinic you can even discover how to break into the wellness industry, or just zone out, breath deeply and find zen in The Meditation Dome.
Once you've worked up an appetite, feast your way through the samples at The Market and choose from the oh-so-virtuous selection of protein shakes, fresh juices and hearty salads on offer at The Refuel Café or The Balanced Kitchen. Those who'd like to boost their own culinary skills will find plenty of inspiration and practical tips in the Live Cooking Theatre, where healthy eating gurus Deliciously Ella, Tess Ward and Jasmine Hemsley will lead demonstrations.
And save time for shopping – in The Locker Room there're plenty of stylish active-wear brands with leggings, crop tops and sweats that will look as good on Instagram as in the gym.
