Join me, Julie Spark, your slow movement advocate, as we delve into the essence of the Slow Food and Yoga Festival on the enchanting island of Gili Air. This blog post aims to ignite your soul, cleanse your spirit, and remind you of the importance of embracing a mindful and sustainable lifestyle. So, let’s gather in paradise with like-minded individuals who value health, community, and the beauty of nature.


The Ultimate Island Holistic Festival:


At the Slow Food and Yoga Festival, you will embark on a unique opportunity to experience something different, something truly magical. Imagine coming together with a tribe that shares your passion for sustainability, holistic living, and nurturing the mind, body, and soul. With a limited number of 200 tickets sold each time, this festival promises an intimate and transformative experience, where you can connect with fellow attendees on a deeper level.


A Journey of Mindfulness and Wellness:

Prepare to immerse yourself in a wide array of workshops and activities that will nourish your entire being. Begin your days with sunrise meditation and invigorating vinyasa yoga flows, allowing your body and mind to find harmony and balance. Explore the depths of your being through yin restorative evening journeys or challenge yourself with handstand and acro-yoga immersions. Discover the power of breathwork sessions and experience the healing vibrations of sound healing journeys that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and centered.


Mind, Body, and Soul Nourishment:


The Slow Food and Yoga Festival embraces the slow food movement, offering a delicious and sustainable culinary experience. You will have the opportunity to indulge in nutrient-rich, locally-sourced meals that not only nourish your body but also support the island’s zero-waste vision. Engage in workshops on nutrition and learn about the importance of mindful eating, fostering a deeper connection with the food we consume. By embracing slow food, we support not only our own well-being but also the well-being of our planet.

Charity and Giving Back:

One of the most beautiful aspects of this festival is its dedication to charity. Every single person attending contributes to the greater good. The festival supports the local community by building a playground for the children of the island’s school, empowering local women through entrepreneurship and permaculture classes, and making a positive environmental impact by planting 2000 trees annually. By joining this festival, you become part of a community that believes in giving back and creating a brighter future for all.


The Ultimate Island Experience:

For a truly immersive experience, consider the ULTIMATE SFYF LOCAL ISLAND EXPERIENCE. By choosing this option, you not only gain access to the festival but also have the opportunity to stay with a local family in one of the carefully handpicked homestays on the island. This unique experience allows you to connect with the local culture, immerse yourself in the island’s beauty, and create lasting memories with your newfound community.



In a world that often moves at a rapid pace, it is essential to remind ourselves of the power of stillness, the importance of embracing a holistic lifestyle, and the value of community. The Slow Food and Yoga Festival on Gili Air offers a sanctuary for us to gather, grow, and create magic together. So, take a pause, cleanse your soul and spirit, and prioritize your health and wellness. Join me, Julie Spark, and let’s embark on a transformative journey towards a more mindful, sustainable, and fulfilling life.


With love and slow living,
