You would think that our mental health and wellness would be doing just great as the pandemic comes to a hopeful end. That makes sense right?

Well, that's not how this mental battle works. You don't just reach out for wellness in times of need and problems didn't just begin a year ago. The movement has been going on for decades and Sun Valley hosts the longest-running wellness festival in the world.

What Is the Sun Valley Wellness Festival?

This is the place your girlfriends could thrive over a weekend. Mothers are the epicenter of our universe and when that goes down, it's a struggle. Sometimes you just need to find a babysitter or leave the children with your significant other. This is a place where you recharge, enjoy movement classes, meditation sessions, yoga wellness classes, and some great wines paired with the perfect dining experience. Sound good yet?

Sun Valley is a great experience without the wellness event. You don't need an excuse for an Idaho experience at one of the most popular resorts in the country. This event does pack a punch with speakers and Sun Valley is no secret among celebrities.

Main Stage Speakers

  • Vin Gupta, MD, MPA, MSc - Public Health Physician, Professor, and Health Policy Expert. You might have seen him live on the national networks during the pandemic. Vin will be one of your speakers.
