The first wellness and fitness festival in Monte-Carlo is taking place over the weekend of July 6 & 7th called In Your Element. I decided this was something I wanted to do as a new business after working for many years in the health and beauty industry. Nutrition, organic beauty products and healthy ingredients have always interested me, especially as I am getting older and attempting to age gracefully without any needles. Having this website for 20 years I have been very fortunate to meet so many brilliant founders and people who are just fascinating to speak to and learn from. Stay curious, interested and interesting are ways I feel you will stay youthful, so this is my new challenge.
There are already so many great festivals in London, I wanted to create an event in a place where there was an emerging wellness scene and in the beautiful landscape of the South of France. Monte-Carlo has a tight knit community and as I was researching the idea of doing the festival last summer I met so many brilliant people who said they would like to be involved, so with such positive momentum that was it I got to work. I have called it In Your Element, using the natual elements to represent the diferent types of classes and workshops you can attend.
There are so many fantastic people who have said yes to being part of it, I am very grateful to everyone who is coming along and I know collectively they will give an amazing, inspiring energy for all attendees. For the first time in Monaco you will be able to meet and train with some of these wonderful people from London as well as the established people already working in wellbeing in the Riviera.
