Surrounded by a mountainous backdrop of waterfalls and volcanic peaks, and recently described by Conde Nast Traveller as ‘the abundant beauty of wild Madeira’, what better setting for a wellness festival that promises to free the mind and relax the body, all while connecting with nature?
The 6th edition of Wanderlust 108 is coming to Portugal, and Funchal (Santa Catarina Park) is one of the destinations selected as part of the 2022 world tour. Designed for all ages, Wanderlust 108 is an event that promotes physical activity and contact with nature, which promises a mind-freeing experience.
Wanderlust 108 has redefined the understanding of a ‘triathlon’. The mindful triathlon starts with a run (or walk), then hop to your mat for a DJ-powered yoga flow class and finish with 25 minutes of soul-reviving meditation led by world-renowned spiritual leaders.
For the first time in Madeira, the mindful triathlon comprises high-intensity interval training (HIIT), an outdoor yoga experience, and a guided meditation. But this isn’t where the promotion of a healthy body and mind stops. From talks and workshops in themed spaces, to activities on the lawn such as hula hoop, aerial yoga and acroyoga, to the healthy food and craft market and a food court, there is a plethora of activities to choose from when you don’t find yourself on a yoga mat. Nationally recognised teachers, speakers and musicians complete the programme and promise to liven up festival, dedicated to body and mind.
Wanderlust 108 is an event organised by Soma. Tickets will be available on the event’s official page and at Fnac stores across the country
