Monaco positions itself as wellness destination with first health & wellness festival
POSTED 22 May 2019 . BY Jane Kitchen
The principality of Monaco will host its first-ever health and wellness festival, ‘In Your Element’, from 5-7 July, in partnership with the Columbus Monte Carlo hotel and Monaco’s World Class Gym.

Both residents and visitors of Monaco can book to attend the weekend event, which will showcase the latest innovations in health, fitness and wellness.

Festival attendees can take part in workshops and panel discussions with top athletes and experts in fitness, healthy eating & nutrition, holistic therapies and beauty, including Jasmine Hemsley, Naomi Buff and Kim Hartwell.

Designed to restore bodily imbalances back to alignment, the programme for all the family will span yoga, breath work, nutrition-based cookery sessions, holistic therapies including Chinese medicine, bootcamps, cycling and more. Classes will take place at Monaco’s World Class Gym, with kids football coaching at former Man City football player, Richard Dunne’s FMC Elite Football Academy.

The festival will be based on the four elements, Earth, Air, Fire and Water, designed to serve as guides on how to live in synergy with nature. Classes and workshops by element will include:

Fire classes and workshops
Aimed to enhance energy and strength, guests can expect to recharge and revitalise with activities such as dynamic mat Pilates, a morning bootcamp session, as well as a total body fitness class and a spin class led by fitness experts and wellness influencers such as Kim Hartwell.

Earth classes and workshops
Those looking to heal and nourish their bodies can enjoy panel discussions and workshops based on healthy nutrition, including an ‘Eating for More Energy’ workshop with Naomi Buff, founder of Naomi’s Kitchen and a talk on ‘Eastern Wisdom for Western Wellbeing’ by holistic guru and best-selling food author Jasmine Hemsley. Attendees can also learn the art of ancient Chinese medicine remedies with Fanny Rigaud, a practitioner in holistic therapies.

Water classes and workshops
Designed to boost creativity and improve the natural flow of the body, visitors can enjoy activities such as an anti-ageing and movement workshop and an ‘Eating for Good Skin’ cooking workshop led by Naomi Buff. For the more adventurous, there will also be an ice-bath challenge and the opportunity to compete in a beach volleyball tournament.

Air classes and workshops
Air classes will help recalibrate festival goers with relaxing activities focusing on breathing techniques, including yoga classes, sound bath healing, an innovative ‘Aromalates’ session combining aromatherapy with Pilates and ‘Reiki Reset and Recharge’ treatments. Children will also have the chance to take part in specialist ‘Mini-Mindfulness Meditation and Yoga’ sessions.

Following the Principality’s recent ‘Green is the New Glam’ campaign, ‘In Your Element’ aims to emphasise the importance of eco-friendly acts such as sustainability and mindful eating through its talks and workshops, whilst also offering a local focus on Monaco’s principals of marine ecosystem preservation.

Monaco was also the Wellness Tourism Association's first tourism board member, joining in 2018.
