EVENT: Wellbeing in the West End

Wellbeing in the West End will offer three days of self-exploration, nutrition, fitness, yoga, meditation and mindfulness between 11 and 13 January 2019

If you live in the Capital and are looking to shape up, detox, chill out or become more mindful this January, get along to Edinburgh West End’s first ever wellbeing festival!

Local health professionals are coming together to host Wellbeing in the West End on 11, 12 and 13 January – when they’ll be offering a range of workshops and classes at different venues throughout the district – and they’re inviting you to join them.

The £20 ticket price, which will help to raise money for The Joshua Nolan Foundation and The Rock Trust, includes access to all activities, classes, workshops and talks – each of which have been designed to help nurture and nourish your own wellness.

According to organisers, the three-day celebration of self-exploration, nutrition, fitness, yoga, meditation and mindfulness will be like nothing Edinburgh West End has ever seen before. The itinerary features a series of different talks, covering the likes of goal setting and managing anxiety, and exhibitors will showcase a range of health and wellbeing products and services, such as organic food, jewellery, crystals and therapies, at the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre.

Beneficiary The Rock Trust works with homeless and socially excluded youngsters aged 16 to 25 across Edinburgh and the Lothians. Meanwhile, The Joshua Nolan Foundation believes it’s possible to prevent every suicide. The charity offers support, training and advice to people living in Scotland of all ages and gender identity, who may identify as being ‘at risk’ or affected by suicide.

Holistic Scotland Magazine stockist Calm on Canning Street is one of the West End venues taking part.

“We are so excited about this event, which combines all the things we love: community, self-care and self-kindness,” says Calm on Canning Street founder Katy Lomas (pictured).
