Outdoor yoga events

If you’ve every dreamed of holding a yoga pose near your favorite landmarks, such as the Space Needle in Seattle or in the middle of the Hudson River in New York, you have a chance to make your dream a reality. This spring and summer, Wanderlust and Smartwater have partnered to offer yogis around the country outdoor yoga instruction by top yoga instructors, live music, and a way for communities to join together in supporting Off the Mat, Into the World, a non-profit that uses the power of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism and to ignite grassroots social change.

“Wanderlust embodies a modern conscious lifestyle of healthy activity, nutrition, living smart and paying it forward – which is exactly what smartwater is all about,” says Matt Kahn, senior vice president of marketing for Smartwater. “We’re excited to partner with Wanderlust to bring such a fun experience to yoga lovers throughout the country.”

Unwind and recharge with yoga

Wanderlust Yoga In The City is providing yogis with a day full of relaxation and rejuvenation. Yogis from beginner to guru can unwind in the Smartwater stress-less lounges and go straight from work to workout with a quick outfit change at C9 by Champion’s on-site tents. Smartwater will also be giving away Gaiam yoga mats to the first 200 registrants at every event — get registered today!

“We created Wanderlust Yoga in the City with Smartwater to take the music and yoga phenomenon to a whole new level,” says Jeff Krasno, Wanderlust’s co-founder. “Together we are able to unite the community to support an amazing charity, enjoy some awesome music, sweat out the day’s stress through yoga, and meet likeminded people.”

Make healthy changes with Smartlife Facebook app

Wanderlust Yoga In The City and Smartwater have also kicked off Smartlife, a Facebook application that leads participants through a series of positive goals that benefit their health, the environment and their community. The Smartlife application also allows participants to invite friends and family to help complete their smartlife goals and to support Wanderlust’s charity partner, Off the Mat, Into The World, in their mission of empowering individuals to transform their lives and their communities through the power of yoga.
