Anchored in large public parks in top markets all over the world, Wanderlust’s unique triathlon consists of a five-kilometer run (or walk), a large-scale, outdoor yoga class and a guided meditation led by the world’s top teachers. Mindful triathletes will also enjoy music from live DJs and an array of surprises throughout the day. Tickets for the Spring series will go on sale Tuesday, January 17, 2017.
New for 2017, Wanderlust will allow participants to “play all day” by adding a scheduled class such as AIReal Yoga™, Acro Yoga, Hooping, Walking Meditation, Photography Workshop, DJ Academy, Essential Oils 101, or an extra community yoga experience from favorite local teachers at “The Haven,” our brand-new, tented venue. If triathletes are still itching for more, they can pop into bonus field games that will be offered afterwards; if resting and relaxing is needed, attendees can visit “The Lounge,” to take a comfy seat and enjoy inspiring videos from Wanderlust TV.
At all Wanderlust 108 events, the Kula Marketplace will showcase local craft vendors, including clothing, jewelry, and handcrafted items. Local and organic food vendors will be on site, as well as Wanderlust’s signature True North Cafe & Juice Bar, and a Kombucha garden. Also available is a picnic lunch option—the “Wanderbowl”—a hearty, Mexican inspired vegetarian meal of rice, beans, cheese, avocado and mango-lime-cilantro salsa, plus snacks and a beverage— to keep participants nourished throughout the day.
In North America, MC Yogi will be ringleader at all events, and high-energy yoga classes will be taught by a phenomenal array of local talent in each city including Chelsey Korus, MaryBeth La Rue, Janet Stone, Lauren Imperato and Adrienne Mishler. (Check local listings.) Noah Levine or Dave Smith from Against The Stream Meditation Society will lead the meditation portion of the triathlon, while either DJ Drez, DJ Taz Rashid or DJ Sol Rising will spin tunes.
At each Wanderlust 108 event in North America, attendeeswill be nourished by a number of Wanderlust partners, including:
- adidas, will host a one-of-a kind, immersive onsite activation to engage in attendee-led experiences, enabling them to embed more sport into their day and create their best selves at all US-based events. Curated adidas apparel also will be sold at each event.
