A new Wellness Festival is announced in Mauritius on the 3rd-5th May 2019 which is the first of its kind on the island and in the region. Organised by Heritage Resorts the festival embraces wellness in connection with nature, with many activities taking place in the most iconic landmarks of the wild south of Mauritius such as Le Morne, a classified UNESCO World Heritage site. The festival will take place at the C Beach Club at Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort in southern Mauritius.
International wellness leaders along with other local experts will offer yoga, pilates, breathing, meditation, nutrition classes, talks and workshops each day, as well as two ‘nature connection’ outings to beautiful scenic areas such as nature reserves, waterfalls and beaches. The festival will awaken all five senses – touch, sound, smell, sight and taste through music, dancing, cooking, art and other media.
Other features of the festival include a relaxation zone, music corners, artists areas, healthy food stations, evening music festival by local bands with local instruments, as well as access to the beach and pools.
