As soon as one Wellness festival ends we start thinking about where to get our next fix of yoga, mindfulness, great food and even better company – thats why this September we’re off to London for the Wanderlust festival! Will you be joining us? We’ll be over there covering the festival and bringing you first-hand insights, backstage gossip and competitions galore. Find out what to expect ….
Wanderlust, producers of the largest yoga lifestyle events in the world, will bring Wanderlust 108, the world’s only “mindful triathlon,” to Victoria Park, London, UK on Saturday September 23, 2017.
Wanderlust’s signature triathlon, which is produced in partnership with adidas, attracts thousands for a five-kilometer run (or walk), an outdoor 90-minute yoga class, and a guided meditation. Mindful triathletes will also enjoy live music and DJs, artisanal vendors, local foods and further activities to be revealed.
Participants can add a free scheduled class such as aerial yoga, acro-yoga, hooping, walking meditation, workshops, or a community yoga experience from favourite local teachers. Celest Pereira (triyoga) and Michael James Wong (Boys of Yoga / Just Breathe London / Sunday School Yoga) are among the inspiring yogis leading the classes with more names to be announced. Wanderlust US regulars will be flying in for the day, including DJ Taz and Arli Liberman, who live soundtrack the yoga and meditation practice. As with all Wanderlust 108 events, the Kula Marketplace will showcase local craft vendors, including clothing, jewellery, and handcrafted items. Local and organic food vendors will be on site, as well as the “adidas x Wanderlust Dome”, showcasing the latest collection between Wanderlust and adidas.
“Most triathlons are about how strong, fast and fit you are. Our focus is on how healthy, balanced and mentally strong you are, so we combined three activities that fit the bill: running, yoga and meditation. The event can be completed even by someone who has never run, practiced yoga or meditated before, but then getting grounded can be a challenge, too. Like all forms of practice, Wanderlust 108 is about the journey itself — not how fast you get there.” Sean Hoess, Co-CEO, Wanderlust
“We’re so excited to bring the world’s first mindful triathlon to London’s gorgeous Victoria Park—the People’s Park – so the UK can experience Wanderlust for the very first time. The event provides an entry into mindfulness that is accessible, affordable, inclusive and fun. Many are new to meditation as well, and it’s an incredible experience to meditate outdoors with thousands of people.” Alan Steel, Managing Director, Wanderlust UK, Southern Europe, Middle East & North Africa
In 2017, Wanderlust events will take place in over 60 cities in more than 17 countries on 5 continents. Wanderlust’s mission is to help you “find your true north” — to cultivate your best self — and Wanderlust 108 was created to support that mission on a large scale. Wanderlust 108 will foster individual wellness and positive social change by building a community around mindfulness practice such as yoga and meditation. Mindfulness practice has been proven to have many benefits, including anxiety reduction and improved cognition. Wanderlust 108 will donate £1 from every ticket sold to the Hope For Children charity (https://hope-for-children.org).
Wanderlust 108 London is at Victoria Park, Grove Road, London, E3 5TB; Nearest Tube Station: Mile End
