MURFEST 2014: Malaysia’s First Wellness Festival | Yoga, Dance & Music


An inaugural weekend-filled yoga, dance and music extravaganza is set to take place here for the first time ever at the Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside and Marina Putrajaya this November.

The Malaysian Urban Retreat Festival 2014, which will take place from Nov 7-9, 2014, will showcase a gathering of well-renowned names and brands in the wellness and health industry. Murfest 2014 will be Malaysia’s largest yoga, music and dance festival.


A rich and captivating experience like none other seen in the region is expected as the world’s leading yoga instructors, musical acts, inspiring speakers and exhibitors weave and showcase their expertise at the event.

Murfest 2014 Festival Founder & Director Shobie Malani said this would be the first time that such talents would be seen on our shores and added that it would kick start the country’s year-long festival that is expected to begin in January 2015.

“It would undoubtedly be the biggest such gathering and we expect this annual event to promote healthy living among Malaysians by using yoga and dance,” she said. “The Festival is all about fostering wellness & community through healing, yoga, music, dance and the many elements that surround it,” she added.

The festival is aimed at creating awareness to fellow Malaysians and participants from neighbouring countries in areas of wellness, fitness, healing while spending the weekend away to treat oneself.

Daytime workshops during the three-day festival will encompass almost 40 different classes to choose from the different categories – yoga, music and dance. There will also be a wellness & healing vendor village that will promote ‘Made in Malaysia’ health and wellness products as well as alternative Indian, Malay and Chinese medicines.


A mini concert called URBANITE will take place at the Marina Putrajaya on the 7th and 8th Nov 2014, which will incorporate international & local bands who are inclined towards world, healing and cultural music genres.
