29 Aug Wanderlust 108 – Get Ready For An Epic Day, Yogis!
Imagine flowing through your yoga practice to a live DJ with hundreds or even thousands of other yogis in a beautiful location. One movement – one breath! Pretty epic, no? That can only mean one thing: Wanderlust is back!
Wanderlust festivals are a bit like a modern-day Woodstock – but created by and for yogis. This popular, now pretty iconic Wanderlust 108 festival is coming to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne this October. Plus, Sydney yogis, there’s an extra treat for you! Power Living will take over the main stage for an epic ‘Vin to Yin’ workshop lead by our very own YogiDunx. Are you ready to yoga your heart out?
Wanderlust – The Yoga Festival
Wanderlust is a big mindful festival for yogis hosted in the most beautiful locations around the world and headlining nationally recognised yoga teachers, spiritual leaders and musicians. Yoga your way through classes with live DJ beats and/or various workshop offerings. Remember, yoga festivals are also a great chance to get a taster of upcoming trends in yoga and wellness; get ready to experience something new. Maybe give aerial yoga or acro yoga a go. Feel more like giving chanting a try? You’re likely to be in the right spot for that too.
You will find stalls that sell everything yoga and different local food stalls throughout the festival. Set aside a whole day for Wanderlust if you like; there is so much on offer with the added bonus of meeting like-minded yogis all day long. Couldn’t get much better as far as we’re concerned!
Wanderlust 108 – Mindful Triathlon
Wanderlust 108 is the world’s only mindful triathlon. Yes, you heard, right. Forget about the traditional triathlon; this one is way more fun and empowering for yogis. A mindful triathlon is a combination of a 5km run (or walk), yoga and meditation. All in one day in one place together with thousands of like-minded yogis. Sounds very epic? That’s because it is.
The running part is approx. 5km (you can walk … just aim to get the distance done). Remember this is not about fierce competition; this is a fun and mindful event. We are all there to challenge our personal boundaries and try something new.
Wanderlust 108 – The Logistics
When do you practice yoga, the run and then the meditation? Will there be time for all the workshops? Below is a quick run down of what a day at Wanderlust 108 has on offer for you.
You arrive in the morning, check-in and gather in front of the main stage for Amplified Yoga – beats of a live DJ through a celebratory cathartic journey. Prior to the 5km run, all runners step on their mats for a pre-race yoga warm-up. Then it’s time to complete your version of the 5km – whatever that looks like. A super fun yoga flow follows your run. Is there a better way to end a run? Not really. After you yoga-ed your heart out, you will be lead through a 30 min meditation practice to complete your triathlon.
Once the triathlon is complete, you can grab lunch at one of the local food stalls, stroll through the markets place for crafts and all things yoga or head to your scheduled yoga workshop. Sydney yogis, this is when you’ll get to dive back into your home community. Power Living is taking over with a special epic class. Join our very own YogiDunx and the Power Living team on a journey from ‘Vin to Yin’.
A journey from ‘Vin to Yin’ workshop
Celebrated as one of Australia modern yoga pioneers, YogiDunx will take you through a fun, challenging and educational arm balancing vinyasa class. And then turn up the love & take you deep into a Yin experience like no other. The class will be filled with philosophical gems of wisdom, humour and nurturing to leave you floating out of class. This class is always one of the most popular, so book in to reserve a space and experience the Power Living Studio Takeover. Tickets start from $65.
Enough of the wandering – yogis, you don’t want to miss this opportunity, so what are you waiting for?
It’s time to get excited for an epic day filled to the brim with all the yoga goodness you can wish! Round up your yogi friends and pack your mats for a fantastic day at Wanderlust 108, Sydney!
We cannot wait to see you there, yogis!
