Wanderlust 108 Festival
Time Out says
This huge day of health offers yoga, mindfulness and fun runs in the park to relieve anxiety
Triathlons aren’t for everyone and that’s okay. However, this three-pronged physical experience is doing things a little differently. Rather than a massive run, bike and swim, the Wanderlust 108 Festival is inviting Sydneysiders to complete a marathon that starts with a cool 5k – run, walk or skip – followed by a leg of DJ-powered yoga, and ending with a restorative meditation session as the third element of the feel-good triathlon.
It’s all going down in Centennial Park, and the name of the game is wellbeing. Along with the tweaked triathlon, there’ll be a series of mood-boosting talks tackling anxiety and stress, plus extra feel-good activities. Not keen on a strict yogi’s regiment? Head to the amplified yoga sesh in the morning that’s more about dancing and rhythm than downward dog. Need a new, weird hobby? Join classes in hula hooping, doing handstands, or acrobatically impressive aerial yoga.
When you’ve stretched, boogied and hustled yourself into a sweaty mess, head to the pop-up café for healthy refreshments, then find more health-focused products at the festival market. The 25 vendors will meet the organic, ethical and sustainable trifecta, and offer everything from yoga mats to homewares, crystals and essential oils.
