It’s official — wellness festivals are taking over Philadelphia. But let’s face it: There are worse things that could be happening. In addition to our full day of fitness fun — Be Well Philly Bootcamp — there’s Philly PR Girl’s new Wellness Fair, The Positivity Charge wellness retreat, and The Good Fest. Now, B Inspired and Balance Chestnut Hill have teamed up to host their own wellness festival.

On Saturday, May 5, Balance Chestnut Hill is opening its doors for a day filled with workouts, healthy snacks, and wellness-centric talks and workshops. The day will kick off at 9:45 a.m. for registration and will wrap up around 3 p.m. In between those hours, guests will get their heart rates up with their choice of three workouts — including yoga, cycling, strength, stretching, and cardio classes. Following the workouts, participants can indulge in a juice break and mingle in a marketplace filled with local vendors.

The day will then continue with a sound bath meditation, a mindfulness talk with founder and director of the Penn program for mindfulness Dr. Michael Baime, and lunch provided by Simply Good Jars. The afternoon will be filled with talks focusing on mind, body, spirit, and beauty, ending with a panel emceed by Melissa Magee of 6ABC. The panel speakers will include Dr. Baime, endurance athlete Ted McDonald, cookbook author Lauren Lobley, oncologist Dr. Pallav Mettah, and meditation instructor Julie Hunt.

Tickets — which you can grab here — range from $50 to $149, but $30 of every ticket sold will directly benefit Living Beyond Breast Cancer, an organization dedicated to supporting individuals impacted by breast cancer.

Balance Chestnut Hill is located at 12 West Willow Grove Avenue in Chestnut Hill. Here’s to a day full of wellness (and snacks!) for a good cause.
