Held annually, the largest wellness, music and dance festival – MURFEST – took place from the 13th to 15th November 2015 at Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar. With the aim to cultivate the urban spirit and adopt a healthy lifestyle amongst Malaysians, Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin officiated the event and had his own taste of some of the workshops lined up for the three-day festival.

Some of the highlights for us included the Body Fly workshop, which was conducted by the Body Fly International Academy hailing from Bangkok, Thailand, the Masala Bhangra dance workshop led by Shalini Bhargava from India, the motivational talk on positivity, de-stress and relaxation by our very own Jojo Struys, and finally, the Forrest yoga workshop by professional yogi Cindy Lee.

For those who have missed the awesome festival this time around, MURFEST will be back next year with more workshops at a much larger scale. Check out MURFEST’s official website and keep yourself updated!
