A NEW wellbeing and self-care festival will be held on the Isle of Wight this summer.

The Awakening Weekend, due to take place Weston Manor House, Totland, over the weekend of June 8 to June 9, aims to show people that taking things slowly improves health and wellbeing.

Organiser Kate Taylor has teamed up with Wightlink to promote the event, and held yoga taster sessions on the Yarmouth to Lymington car ferry.

The festival has a host of holistic therapists and empowerment coaches lined up, offering inspiring talks and self-care advice.

The weekend will include activities including yoga, movement meditation, reflexology, massage and aromatherapy.
