We’ve been fans of FUNKSHION for a number of years as they are involved in Fashion Week shows in Miami. In May of 2017, they launched The Retreat by FUNKSHION, a health and wellness experience that has generated a lot of buzz and has curated fun brands and attendees. With such a successful series of events in Miami, it’s no wonder that in 2019, they will expand to additional cities. On March 10th, they will deploy to Austin’s South Congress Hotel during SXSW where prominent experts, thought leaders, industry shifters and more will come together to enjoy classes, workshops and panels.
Attendees will have the opportunity to take classes ranging from yoga by Outdoor Voices to a Movement class hosted by Bethany C. Meyers. In true SXSW fashion, there will also be a slate of musical acts at several of the activations.
A riveting panel discussion on the Business of Wellness will be co-hosted and moderated with Bloom founder, Lindsey Martin with panelists Lo Bosworth and Bethany C. Meyers.
Ten VIP tickets will be made available for purchase on Eventbrite to give consumers the opportunity to mix and mingle with the industry-focused attendees. “We wanted to create an inspiring and interactive event that will cover every angle of this widely-grown lifestyle, and connect the industry on both a national and regional level,” commented FUNKSHION’s Creative Director, Natalija Dedic Stojanovic. “It was a logical move to take The RETREAT beyond just Miami in our third year of the event, and celebrate health and wellness lifestyle around the United States.”
Attendees will enjoy a range of partners that will be at this event including: Fiji, Essie, Love Wellness, Bloom, The Culinistas, Chameleon Cold Brew, Splendid Spoon, Pura Still and several others. Continue to check out their schedule as they continue to have updates for this event such as Ron Boss who will also lead a class.
The Retreat will continue to host its annual May event in Miami and will arrive in New York this September.
