Hundreds of people gathered at The Navy Yard in South Philadelphia on Saturday to take part in Wanderlust 108, the world’s only mindful triathlon which is a “celebration of mindful movement,” according to the event’s website. It combines three mindful activities: running, yoga and meditation. The festival is held in more than 60 cities across the world.
“I love working with Wanderlust,” said Martika Daniels, a hula-hoop instructor who joined the triathlon a year ago. “They work really hard to create a safe environment that also asks participants to challenge themselves.”
The event also included health and wellness vendors, aerial yoga and essential oil workshops.
