About Soulmala

Soulmala brings together wellness professionals in one place to offer a day of classes including yoga, somatic movement, intuitive dance, voice, sound, healing music, creative art, and mindfulness. The festival will provide participants with full-experience classes rather than taster sessions or exhibitions of products and services. This way, Soulmala is also a one-day retreat where you will be able to create your own unique experience from the varied program we offer.

Our vision is to create space for connection and promote well-being through a range of practices and modalities. We understand the importance of connection and community in sustaining physical, mental, and emotional health leading to more profound transformation both within us and around us. We aim to support and engage local communities as well as wider groups of visitors and friends, making this an inclusive, heart-centered event. Soulmala one-day festival project is the first of its kind to be offered in Bakewell, Derbyshire.

For further inquiries, our organising team of local volunteers would be happy to chat with you. Please feel free to connect with us at soulmalafestival@gmail.com
