Get excited, yogis. Tomorrow, the world’s only “mindful triathlon” is hitting Brooklyn, New York: Wanderlust 108. Thousands are expected to head to Prospect Park for Wanderlust’s very 2017 interpretation of a traditional triathlon. Rather than the expected swimming, cycling, and long-distance run, the mindful triathlon will consist of a five-kilometer run (or walk, whatever!), an outdoor 90-minute yoga class, and a guided meditation. And if running on a Sunday isn’t really your speed, there’s plenty of food, markets, and live music to keep you entertained.
Wanderlust is roping in some big wellness names for the event. Two of New York’s top yogis, Elena Brower of Teach Yoga and Lauren Imparato of I Am You Studio will lead the 90-minute practice. Then, Buddhist teacher and author Noah Levine will take over for the guided meditation.
Once the official “mindful triathlon” is over, you can try out classes like aerial yoga, acro-yoga, hooping, walking meditation, photography or even essential oils workshops taught by New York’s top gurus.
As for shopping, the “Kula Marketplace” will stock local craft vendors, including clothing, jewelry, and other handcrafted items. Hair brand Biolage R.A.W. will be offering sessions with celebrity hair stylist George Papanikolas. The food will be local and #organic (obviously), and Adidas is even hosting some cool activations. Need more details? The full lineup is available online right here.
Now tell me this doesn’t sound like the best Sunday, ever.
The best bit: There are both free and premium tickets available to book online. Free tickets include access to the meditation and yoga portions of the event only, while the premium ($59.08) version gives you access to the run, mat placement, and the full class schedule. Classes are booking up, so snap up your spot quickly.
