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 ....
"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
