Get ready! Get set! Go do your Wanderlust thing! Wanderlust festivals have been striking a chord world-wide with the grandest, largest yoga lifestyle events we have ever experienced. And, Wanderlust 108, the world’s first and only “Mindful Triatholon,” is about to embark upon Los Angeles on May 2, 2015. What is a “Mindful Triathlon, you ask?” Come on yogins. You know the way… Take a 5K sprint or jog, engage your bandas in some spiritually yoking asanas (yoga) and complete the trifecta with a bit of magical meditation. Sprinkle in with some shopping, acroyoga, hooping and musical wonders and you’ve got a festival of happiness, a.k.a. Wanderlust!
Wanderlust 108 first launched in New York’s Prospect Park and Atlanta’s Piedmont Park in 2014, bringing the mindful triathlon experience to over 10,000 participants. After the overwhelmingly positive response, Wanderlust will expand the series to more than 15 cities in 2015, including events in the U.S. and additional events in Canada, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand.
This Saturday, Los Angeles participants will have a choice as how to begin their experience. Begin with your 5K run through Santa Monica Pier or indulge in a high energy yoga class lead by Tiffany Cruikshank with MC Yogi cranking out some Beastie Boys beats alongside her. Then, switch it up and take it on the flip side! We’ll all bring it down together after the exertion of the run and yoga in a relaxing meditation led by local LA teacher, Noah Levine. And, we’ll get up again to soak in the exuberant Bad Cactus Brass Band and the sweet beats of DJ Drez, bringing the event home from the Main Stage.
Throughout the day, the Kula Marketplace will offer the finest from local craft vendors, including unique apparel, jewelry, and handcrafted items. Local food purveyors will provide an eclectic mix of healthy organic food options, including vegan and vegetarian fare.
