In 2017, wellness continued to evolve beyond a focus on physical wellbeing towards a much greater emphasis on emotional resilience. In line with this shift, new wellness studios and co-working spaces emerged, offering a more nuanced approach to self-care.
Los Angeles studio WMN Space pioneered this approach with its programme of moon circles, voice and sound baths, and meditation classes that encouraged women to come together and heal with like-minded individuals.
Similarly, forward-thinking co-working spaces became more attuned to the importance of fostering emotional intelligence in the workspace. A notable example was The Assemblage in New York, which provides meditation rooms and elixir bars that serve mood-enhancing non-alcoholic drinks, as well as traditional co-working spaces.
