What is a mindful triathlon? A triathlon consists of three challenging endurance races that test the strength, stamina and speed of the participants. A mindful triathlon, on the other hand, combines running or walking with yoga and meditation for a transformational experience. These will all take place at Wanderlust 108 in West End on Saturday, the 19th of Oct 2019.
Wanderlust 108 is the world’s only mindful triathlon. The movement began in Los Angeles in 2014 and has since expanded to different cities across the world.
Kicking off at 7:30 a.m. at Orleigh Park, participants of Wanderlust 108 will first gather, warm-up and energise with coffee near the 5km starting line. The official race will start at 9:00 a.m., where you can run, walk, trot or skip to the finish line.
By 11:00 a.m., set up your yoga mat at the park grounds for a 75-minute yoga flow session, which will be followed by a 25-minute soul-soothing and muscle-relaxing meditation led by renowned yoga teachers and spiritual leaders.
There’s more to do at Wanderlust 108 when the mindful triathlon is done, though, as this event is also a shoppers market and workshop session. After the mindful triathlon to promote a healthy body and mind, a little retail therapy might also make you feel good. You can browse or shop at the Kula Marketplace for handcrafted pieces, clothing, accessories, food and drinks.
You may also listen in and join the workshops on gut health, hormonal advice, personal power, or Tibetan sound bath healing from experts like Lara Zilbowitz, Donovan McGrath, Kemi Nekvapil, Jordanna Levin, Helen Jacobs, Chantelle Rawlings and Lee Holmes.
The market will open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
