Wanderlust Announces Spring 2017 Tour Dates For The “Wanderlust 108”
PRESS RELEASE FROM WANDERLUST
The World’s First “Mindful Triathlon," 5K Run (Or Walk), Yoga and Meditation, Will Tour to 56 Cities World Wide
Wanderlust, producer of the largest yoga lifestyle events in the world, in partnership with adidas, reveals the springtime, North American dates and locations for Wanderlust 108, the world’s first and only “mindful triathlon.” 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 are on sale now!
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. 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.
