There’s no beating the heat this summer, so you migh as well continue sweating with this weekend’s workouts. Grab your mat and your water — and remember to stay hydrated.
Great Lawn Park
Saturday, July 14, 7:30 a.m.
Hit the pavement and the mat with this “mindful triathlon.” Unlike a typical triathlon event, Wanderlust 108 consists of a 5K run, 75 minutes of yoga and 25 minutes of guided meditation. DJs will provide the beats to help yogis find their “true north” during the Wanderlust festival. Tickets come in different tiers; free entrance is provided for those looking to participate in the yoga and meditation only, but drop-in access will be limited to the activities taking place with vendors in the afternoon, and the 5K is not included. Those interested in participating in all three activities can purchase a ticket for $55.08, with $1.08 of every ticket purchased going to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS. For more information about Wanderlust 108, or to explore ticket bundles, visit the Wanderlust website.
Saturday, July 14, 9 a.m.
Archipelago Clubs — the multidisciplinary community centered around deep connection and dynamic experiences — presents “Unyoga,” yoga with a twist.

Visit the Archipelago Clubs website for more information and to purchase tickets.
