SARATOGA SPRINGS — The public is invited to an event that will promote the Saratoga region as a hub for health and wellness. The free, two-day Festival for Change has been scheduled on April 29 and 30.

The Saratoga Convention and Tourism Bureau and the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with I Love NY and Carson Worldwide, will host the event at the Gideon Putnam Resort and Saratoga Spa State Park.

The goal of Festival for Change is to get individuals and families active, informed, outdoors, connected with natural health and wellness, and empowered with possibility; and to promote the area as a ‘go-to’ destination for health and wellness.

Increasing concerns for affordable healthcare and avoiding illness has brought wellness into the spotlight. As fitness, diet and mental health become important considerations we learn there are more cost-effective and safer ways to achieve health and happiness.

Festival visitors can break through traditional dependencies and see beyond a singular view of how to take charge of their own lives, rather than allowing others to dictate the one-size-fits-all approach.

Activities will include: yoga, meditation, fitness, guided tours in the state park of carbonated mineral springs and the only active spouting geysers east of the Mississippi River. There also will be immersive wellness hikes, related presentations and demonstrations, Native American performances and lore, energy healers, guides and intuitives, wellness exhibitors, and a gear-swap area where anyone can bring their outdoor gear and apparel to trade or give away.

The festival has been organized along with a Powermastery Retreat. The retreat will run between April 28 and 30 in the Gideon Putnam Resort. Registration is required for this 18-session, multi-workshop boot camp.

More than a dozen workshop leaders will guide retreat guests from what is holding them back while equipping them with the tools for breakthrough. The faculty includes Guinness World Record winners, bestselling authors, and mentors in mindfulness.
