Last year, the wellness world got a makeover. People started having more open and honest conversations about their mental health, green beauty went mainstream, and CBD took over the world (just a slight exaggeration). All the while, as we investigated last year’s wellness trend report, people embraced intermittent fasting, breathwork gained traction, and we all started to realize that social media might be contributing to our anxiety.

Building upon the progress we’ve made in 2018, we’re predicting that wellness will only continue to become more accessible this year. Another big theme on our radar is the blending of old and new. More and more ancient practices that have withstood the test of time will enter mainstream consciousness, and we’re hoping this return to simplicity sparks a connection that’s real and timeless in all of us.

This month we held our latest YEGFit Talk featuring three local holistic practitioners who talked about their philosophies towards wellness and how they are helping their clients work towards their goals of whole-body wellness.

Guests enjoyed an amazing presentation and practice at Central Social Hall where we were lead through a grounding session by Amber Kupina which made everyone in the room present and focused for the night ahead. The purpose was to share how holistic wellness practices can (and should) be part of your wellness routine.

The guest panel for the evening included Amber Kupina, Nicole Broadhurst and Sabrina Souto. Nicole and Sabrina focused their portion of the talk around sexual health and explored issues to get people talking about sex and healthy relationships.
