Wanderlust offers events and festivals across the world to transform your mind and body. Join in for a day or weekend to center and challenge yourself.
I was just talking last week about self care. It's so important to take care of yourself as you run around trying to take care of everyone else. You know the drill about the oxygen masks. You have to put your's on first before you can help anyone else. So I have another great way for you to practice self care. Take yourself to a Wanderlust event.
Wanderlust is a global yoga lifestyle company. They put on some really cool events all over the world like the one that's coming to the Santa Monica Pier April 29 and 30. In fact, that weekend, Angelenos are getting the world's only "mindful triathalon." This is one triathalon I can, and actually want, to do.
It starts with a 5 kilometer run, or walk, followed by a 90 minute outdoor yoga class right on the Santa Monica pier. It concludes with a guided meditation. I might be able to medal in this, but right, it's not a competition. That's the beauty of yoga. You practice where you are, and where you are is absolutely perfect.
It could end there, but doesn't. Wanderlust 108 as they call these one day events, also includes aerial yoga and acro-yoga, when the yoga mat might just be too sticky for you. You can also learn about essential oils, participate in a walking meditation and even get your hula hoop on while listening to some top DJ spin uplifting music.
There's a full marketplace for jewelry, crafts and clothing shopping, and of course plenty of food to fuel your mind and body.
If you don't live in LA, fear not. Wanderlust has events in 60 cities and over 17 countries on 5 continents, so there's bound to be some good vibes near you. Check their website for more info.
As if you needed any more reason to attend Wanderlust, over $1.00 from each ticket sale will benefit No Kid Hungry, a great non-profit trying to end childhood hunger. Talk about extreme care for yourself and others.
If you live in LA, I'll see you on the Santa Monica Pier the weekend of April 29 and 30!
