But the most exciting, and important, part of the modern wellness boom isn’t the next forest floor ingredient we’ll be sipping on, but what the world of wellness will look like. The future of the industry is inviting and inclusive. It’s accessible to different genders, classes, body types, and skin colors. It turns old norms on its head (trap yoga, anyone?).

From Black-owned virtual houseplant stores to fitness studios free from microaggressions to the advocates fighting to save the lives of Black women through fertility services, these trailblazers are proving, once and for all, that wellness is for everyone.
