(All photos taken with iPhone) I have been looking forward to Wanderlust 108 for months now. When I was asked if I wanted to attend the event, I jumped on the opportunity. Yoga is an activity I don’t get the opportunity to do in a group setting too often, so I thought it would be a fun challenge.
Before Wanderlust 108
Registration was simple and confirmation was sent right away. Attendees were sent multiple reminder emails and were able to put together a digital schedule prior to the event. I loved this because I didn’t have to carry around a paper copy and keep checking back with it. There were several different activities to choose from to complete the day.
Wanderlust 108 Event Day
My friend Alison and I arrived early anticipating a large crowd at check in. There was a bag check area with many volunteers so the line went quickly and efficiently. Alison and I checked out all the booths (got cute bags at the Ford station) and located where all of our classes would be. We got our tribal markings while we waited in line for the 5K to start.
Triathlon Part 1- 5K- This was the most laid back 5K I have participated in (in such an organized, great way). Many walked, some ran, some jogged, but everyone had a smile and encouraged one another. I usually run full blast, but Alison and I stuck together, jogged, and chatted. The weather was perfect. MC Yogi stood at the finish line cheering everyone on and offering each runner a high five just before crossing the finish line. We were also encouraged to use our charity miles app so that our 3.1 miles could count toward charity.
Triathlon Part 2- Yoga- MC Yogi was one of the highlights of Wanderlust for me. He was fun, talented and led all of us through a community building and fun yoga and dance party.
Faith Hunter followed and led us through a 30 minute yoga flow. By the way, she is stunning. This was the largest community of people I have ever done yoga with and it was invigorating.
Triathlon Part 3- Meditation- Noah Levine ended the triathlon with meditation. The sun was out, everyone was focused, and I felt relaxed. It was the perfect way to end the day’s events.
However, the fun wasn’t over because there were still several classes available to take. This year, I was able to participate in not only the three triathlon parts, but a few of the bonus activities as well. Wanderlust 108 offered acro yoga, hooping, and more. Alison and I took AiReal yoga and Barre3.
AiReal Yoga- The other highlight of Wanderlust 108 for me was AiReal Yoga. Deanna led us through the basics on the hammock (we even learned how to go upside down) and we ended with a few minutes of shavasana. Seriously, this was so much fun! I left convinced I was going to buy a swing for my back yard.
Barre3- The ladies at Barre3 Coppell led us through a quick cardio barre routine. It was a fun way to mix up the events for me and get one more short burst of cardio in.
If you live in any of the areas Wanderlust 108 is coming next, and you’re wondering if it is worth it. The answer is yes! There is something so freeing, fun, and full of “good times.”
