Inside THE UPSIDE’s #ownthemorning Event

Behind the scenes of the launch event at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, hosted by Jodhi Meares.

To celebrate the launch of #OwnTheMorning, THE UPSIDE's founder, Jodhi Meares, hosted a two day event in the Blue Mountains. The event was inspired by the notion of reclaiming time for ourselves in the morning by rising early and taking time to prioritise our wellbeing, whether it’s working up a sweat, going for a swim or simply being still. By inspiring people to rise early and #OwnTheMorning, we hope to empower people to start their days in the best way possible.

The event took place at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, an ultra-luxury conservation-based resort that is set within a 7,000-acre carbon-neutral wildlife reserve in the heart of the Greater Blue Mountains. The resort’sserene privacy and breathtaking natural beauty provided a uniquely Australian setting for guests to switch off, take a moment and #OwnTheMorning in the lap of luxury.

Jodhi Meares, Nadia Fairfax, Kalani Miller, Mimi Elashiry and Kate Kendall all enjoyed #OwnTheMorning inspired activities including yoga, mountainside meditation and a wellness breakfast in the Valley.

In true UPSIDE spirit the remaining days were filled with outdoor activities including horse riding, mountain biking and panoramic picnics as well as plenty of time to kick back and relax with 5 star dining, a world class spa, roaring fires and of course, the private pool in each of the guest’s villa.

After one final early morning yoga session on the outdoor deck with Kangaroos bounding past it was time to pack up after an incredible mini getaway.
