The Zentosa LiveWELL Festival will return for its second edition at Sentosa from Jun 10 to Jul 25.

Organised by the Sentosa Development Corporation and running in collaboration with the Wellness Festival Singapore, the Zentosa LiveWELL Festival will offer a multitude of activities that are categorised into five holistic pillars of wellness.

The pillars are BondWELL, dedicated to family bonding activities; PlayWELL, which promotes physical wellbeing; RestWELL, which encourages digital detox; EatWELL, which offers healthier food options; and the new emotional wellness pillar FeelWELL.

With over 250 activities available, this year’s festival highlights mental wellness and the positive effects of strong lasting relationships.

The event will kick off on Jun 10 with a 5km Discovery Walk at Palawan Green where guests can discover more about Sentosa’s coastal and natural history.

Choo Sung-hoon, also known as “Sexyama” from the reality competition series Physical: 100, will flag off the walk.

Here are some of the activities that will be featured at the festival:

Festival-goers can look forward to health-related talks, healthy food, and free music programmes such as Jazz by the Beach.

F&B options will also be available at the Market Hall for those seeking healthy and nourishing options.

The Body Shop Singapore will conduct yoga sessions at the Festival Village featuring instructor Brandon Chong.

FeelWELL Pillar – Building on mental wellness at Fort Siloso

The new wellness pillar will exhibit an interactive art installation and poetry created by local artists Kult Studio & Gallery and Charlene Shepherdson, in collaboration with the National Arts Council and National Heritage Board.

The installation, The Way to Wellness, can be found in three tunnels at Fort Siloso.

The exhibition begins at Fort Siloso’s Tunnel C near Siloso Point, where visitors are invited to centre themselves in a deconstructed Zen garden and reflect upon their life journey so far.

Subsequently, visitors will go through Tunnel B where they confront themselves and their lifestyle. Visitors symbolically “cleanse” themselves as they exit and start afresh on a blank slate.

The installation ends in Tunnel A, where visitors are invited to fill their lives with colours representing various aspects of mental wellness.

Throughout each tunnel, visitors will also get to experience Charlene Shepherdson’s literary works and appreciate the series of narratives and poems created by the artist.

Admission to the exhibition is free of charge.

Priced at $18 per person, visitors can recharge in nature by strolling through the Therapeutic Forest at Imbiah Trail from Jun 10 to 25.
