Mindful weekend in Hackney anyone?

Other | Friday 22nd September 2017 |

Living in London and dealing with daily city struggles like pollution, stress and tension can bring can be a bit, well, stifling. Want to rediscover your inner zen and dust off those old Chakra points?

Well,  head over to Victoria Park this weekend and get involved with Wanderlust for London's ultimate mindfulness weekend. With 5K runs (or walks) on the cards, Yoga underscored by deejays, Meditation to mend your mind or a Kula market to discover some locally made gems, Wanderlust this weekend may prove to be your breath of fresh “Hackney” air.

Wanderlust’s signature triathlon, which is produced in partnership with Adidas, attracts thousands for a 5k run (or walk), an outdoor 90-minute yoga class, and a 30-minute guided meditation. Mindful triathletes will also enjoy live music and DJs at the event, artisanal vendors and local foods in the Kula Marketplace, and a wide choice of free activities at The Uncommons venue including acro-yoga, aerial yoga, guided meditation, and hula-hooping.

Alan Steel, Managing Director, Wanderlust UK, Southern Europe, Middle East & North Africa explains:

“Wanderlust’s Kula Marketplace is a hub for connecting with friends, shopping for organic goodies, and checking out exciting new products and ethical brands. We are overwhelmed by the interest from vendors across London that will provide a wide range of unique food experiences, apparel, jewellery, and hand-crafted goods. We remain true to our purpose in connecting like-minded minds to create an experience that guides you on your path towards a healthy and inspired life”.

In 2017, Wanderlust events will take place in over 60 cities in more than 17 countries on 5 continents. Wanderlust’s mission is to help you “find your true north” — to cultivate your best self — and Wanderlust 108 was created to support that mission on a large scale.   Wanderlust 108 will foster individual wellness and positive social change by building a community around mindfulness practice such as yoga and meditation. Mindfulness practice has been proven to have many benefits, including anxiety reduction and improved cognition. Wanderlust 108 will donate £1 from every ticket sold to the Hope For Children charity (
