AMPLIFY is a wellness festival celebrating the Ocean, Art & Sound, and it’s the passion project of us: Deb and Christina.
As wellness experts we know in our bones that 'We' as in, the collective of humanity, will never truly be well as long as the health of the planet suffers at our hands.
AMPLIFY aims to bring together people in celebration of the Ocean and all the ways that we enjoy it: as a food source, a playground and as an essential part of our own well being and spiritual connection.
To solve the environmental issues we face will require the best of our collective energy and creativity. AMPLIFY brings you the tools that you need to amplify your own well being; yoga, health workshops, connection to nature, creativity, community, encouragement and education.
NOW is the time for the ocean warriors, the mermaids, the change makers, and YOU to start to dream a new world into being and to ACTION that dream. It is a chance for us to come together to AMPLIFY our collective VOICE through creative expression.
It is our wish that you leave feeling positive, creative, inspired, connected and most of all READY for change. Open your creative channels, find space and flow in your body, shop sustainably, eat healthy, connect to the ocean, learn and be inspired to live better - for you and for the planet.
Be a part of the solution - join us now!
