In case you can’t make it to Wanderlust VT or CA, or you just can’t get enough yoga, music, and fun times (duh) – we’ve got your solution right here!
We are so excited to be a part of these incredible events! Our friends over at the Wanderlust Festival have been working hard to set up 7 one-day events in cities across the country – be sure to keep a look out for team YOGANONYMOUS – we’ll be on-site at each and every one of ‘em!
Wanderlust Yoga in the City – Created with SmartWater
Hang on to your mats — today we’re announcing a series of new Wanderlust events,Wanderlust Yoga In The City! Created with our friends at smartwater, we’ve spent months creating the perfect outdoor yoga events in your favorite city parks, featuring yoga instruction by top teachers, live music, and great community vibe. Though the events are free with registration, we’re also launching a Facebook app called the smartlife that will help raise money for Wanderlust’s official charity partner, Off The Mat Into The World , all while you improve your health and the community around you. Good stuff? We think so — read more below.
With all these great events, we figured it was time to explain the different Wanderlust experiences we’re offering in 2011: two festivals (CA and VT), seven Yoga In The City events, one hotel-based event (Wanderlust at the Standard), one event in a legendary music venue (Wanderlust at the Fillmore), and two events with our friends at Anusara, the Anusara Grand Circle and the Anusara Inspired Gathering. While each event offers a Wanderlust-sized dose of yogic goodness, they were custom designed to tickle your fancy in different ways. Happy wandering!
Wanderlust has teamed up with smartwater to take the Wanderlust experience on the road with a new series of events called Wanderlust Yoga In The City. Kicking off in Civic Space Park in Phoenix, AZ on May 3, Wanderlust Yoga in the City will hit 7 cities nationally to celebrate the culture of modern yoga. The events are free with registration and include yoga instruction by each city’s top teachers and live music, all in a beautiful outdoor setting. The website for YITC Phoenix is live now; registration and event websites for the other YITC events will launch approximately a month before each event.
After you register for Yoga In The City, you’ll be given the opportunity to participate in thesmartlife. What is the smartlife, you ask? It’s two things: a Facebook app that leads you through a series of goals benefitting your health, the community and the environment. It’s also a great way to raise money for charity. You can ask your friends and family to sponsor your goals, which include things like drinking more water, cutting back on alcohol, donating to a charity, and of course doing more yoga. All of the money raised will be donated to our official charity sponsor, Off The Mat Into The World. The top 5 fundraisers will receive a special shout out at Wanderlust Yoga in the City as well as an amazing prize pack from our sponsors.
