Thousands of yogis from around the world are expected to pay a visit to Santa Monica Sunday, Sept. 9 for the Wanderlust Yoga in the City series, a set of three free yoga events featuring top teachers, acclaimed musicians and renowned speakers.
Presented by Wanderlust Festival and Yoga Aid, the event will serve as the closing ceremony for the Yoga Aid World Challenge – an international fundraising event for charity that promotes the joys of yoga.
Wanderlust Yoga in the City will take place on the Santa Monica Pier from 1 to 6 p.m.
“Los Angeles is a huge yoga market, and we are rallying the community to come together for a great cause – while having a bit of fun,” said Wanderlust co-founder Jeff Krasno. “After a jam-packed Wanderlust Festival season, it’s the perfect opportunity to showcase incredible talent all in the name of charity.”
Clive Mayhew, co-founder of Yoga Aid Foundation, added, “Wanderlust Yoga in the city of Los Angeles will truly be the crowning moment of our efforts to raise $1 million for worthy service projects worldwide on our 30-plus country, 200-event relay. Our partnership with Wanderlust has aided in propelling Yoga Aid’s dedication to creating an international charitable platform unifying the global yoga community to do good.”
Onsite, sponsor Health Magazine will introduce the Health Pavilion, which offers chats and classes with celebrity guests, personalized cover shoots in an on-site digital photo booth, giveaways and a free tablet download of Health’s October issue. Attendees will also have the opportunity to take part in a hybrid yoga series with celebrity yogini Mandy Ingber.
