Combining multidisciplinary forms of physical, spiritual and mental conditioning, such as kundalini yoga, dance, HIIT, martial arts, meditation and animalistic flow, Sanctum experiences see participants move in unity to reach a deep sense of joy and euphoria. The self-care experience first originated in Amsterdam as a nomadic global community in 2020 and quickly gained a global following with acclaimed retreats in Ibiza, London, Dubai and beyond.

“We are honoured and beyond excited to partner with Soneva to bring Sanctum experiences to SOUL Festival for the first time.
