THE WELLNESS REVOLUTION: Intel & Inspiration from 92Y’s Panel Discussion with Well+Good CEO Alexia Brue
Posted by: Malisa Meresman in: Consumer Lifestyle -
We recently had the opportunity to attend The Wellness Revolution, a curated conversation at 92nd Street Y with three trailblazing women at the center of it all. Renowned writer and chef Candice Kumai, Inspiralized founder Ali Maffucci and F-Factor diet creator Tanya Zuckerbrot sat down with Alexia Brue of Well+Good to discuss the latest industry intel and share their tips for getting started down the life-changing path of wellness.
Alternative yesterday, mainstream today
The wellness sector is undoubtedly booming, and it’s impressive just how strongly (and how quickly) this revolution has taken hold. One of the key themes of the panel discussion focused on the origins of today’s leading wellness trends. Practices that were considered “alternative” and “niche” in the past are today quite mainstream. All the panelists noted that many concepts that are now trending in wellness aren’t necessarily new and original. What is new is how today’s wellness innovators, entrepreneurs and experts are applying existing research and science and evolving traditional practices, as well as how consumers today are educating themselves and seeking wellness solutions that fit their lifestyles.
