The Principality of Monaco is joining nearly 150 other countries, as well as cities along the Côte d’Azur, in celebrating World Wellness Weekend in the coming days. Here are all the local events.
Since 2017, World Wellness Weekend has been a source of inspiration for millions of people around the world through the thousands of free, fun and creative activities organised by wellness professionals and service providers each year.
World Wellness Weekend is a concept that was started by Jean-Guy Gabriac, an author and educator in the field, as a way of encouraging people to think more about their health and consider making better, more sustainable choices in their lives, as well as to find innovative ways of making exercise more enjoyable.
The global initiative, taken up by venues, associations, businesses and city officials in almost 150 counties worldwide, is partnered with the United Nations Global Sustainability Index Institute. Locally, the three destinations of Monaco, Nice and Antibes will also be hosting World Wellness Weekend-related events, and here’s when and where to find them.
Conscientiae, the new venue that took over from Stars‘N’Bars, will be hosting events on the theme of “holistic options to care for your mind, body and spirit” on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September, to which a number of wellness professionals from the realms of yoga, nutrition, massage, reflexology and meditation have been invited along to give free, introductory mini-sessions to those interested.
Some of the topics that will be covered include: electrostimulation exercise, face and body sculpting, floral art classes, a family constellation presentation, health and nutrition science, kundalini meditation, a yoga-Pilates flow course and a short reflexology treatment.
Additionally, the restaurant will be open for those who would like to enjoy a healthy meal before or after the event. The Saturday programme runs from 1pm to 6pm, and on Sunday from 2pm to 5pm.

The Spa CinqMondes at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort has also organised a series of treatments and skin diagnosis sessions between Friday 15th and Sunday 17th September, from 10am to noon and subject to availability. To honour the inclusive spirit of World Wellness Weekend, the spa will also be putting out video “capsules” featuring yoga and facial massage methods.

The establishment will also be offering a “Flash Diagnosis and Relaxation” session on both days for guests of the hotel. A reservation is required for this free treatment.
