SWEATY | Stand up paddle-boarding, salsa dancing, yoga, hip-hop, barre stretch, ballet, bootcamps + more. INSPIRING SPEAKERS | Inspirational journeys, nonprofit leaders, folks w/ stories of triumph, bad a** entrepreneurs + more. WELLNESS WORKSHOPS | Ayurveda, vision mapping, sound therapy, meditation, chef demonstrations, juicing, nutrition experts & more.
WHEN IS IT?
The 2017 Wigwam Fest will be announced soon.
INSPIRATION BEHIND THE FEST
Wigwam Wellness Festival & Retreats founder, Jennifer Lingvall exists to encourage people to see and be the best versions of themselves. She is an experiential junkie in love with design, adventure, dinner parties and her husband, Erik. Jennifer is passionate about the wellness spectrum & connecting the Atlanta community through unique personal growth experiences. Jennifer embraces all of life’s adventures, exploring the fascinating moments life has to offer. She checked breast cancer off her list at 31 – threw some D’s on that B** and took up dancing.
The ceremonial space coined “wigwam” inspired the name for our wellness festival series because it reflects the essence of a domed structure where founder Jennifer Lingvall envisioned healing during her fight with breast cancer. She would frequently visit this fictional space in her mind during meditation or while sitting through a treatment. Two years later, when searching for a name for the festival; the term “wigwam” crossed her desk & she immediately connected the domed structure with her healing imagery and experience. Upon further exploration, she was fascinated to read about wigwams: a place where individuals gather to honor their bodies, minds and spirits. And so, Wigwam Fest was named – a place where individuals gather to honor their bodies, minds and spirits. We fully respect its roots and the culture in which the word originated.
