Global Wellness Day 2023

8 June 2023
Saturday 10 June 2023 will mark the 12th anniversary of Global Wellness Day (GWD) – an internationally successful event dedicated to emphasizing the importance of wellness and encouraging as many people as possible around the world to prioritise their health and wellbeing.

Founded in 2012 by Belgin Aksoy, GWD is always celebrated annually on the second Saturday of June with activities across the globe and the guiding principle that

“one day can change your whole life”

The GWD theme for 2023 is #DanceMagenta – a set of actions centred around championing the benefits of regular dance and movement.
This year, Belgin Aksoy and her team of over 140 GWD ambassadors, key supporters and volunteers are inviting people of all ages to live life with dance, bringing together the tangible and intangible aspects of dance with three basic steps.

  1. Dance with your body: whatever style you choose; dance is a unique form of exercise. Dancing is good for your body

  2. Dance with your thoughts: add dance to your meditation while relaxing. Dance in your mind. Free your dreams

  3. Dance with life: don’t resist, stay in the flow and trust the process. Add music to your life. Let music bring you happiness. Start your day with music, and fall asleep with music. Take control of the rhythm of your life.

Since its inception, GWD has grown from being celebrated in one country to being observed in 170 countries in tens of thousands of location.

Everybody can join in this day by simply taking care of themselves, celebrating, and spreading the word. Also, if you wish, you can organise an event in your community, gym, or city.

Indeed, the Wellness Foundation will promote a dance class in the Wellness Valley themed #DanceMagenta on Global Wellness Day!
It will be held on Saturday 10 June from 9.30 am to 10.30 am in Cesena at the Chiosko Giardini Savelli.
