Live at Wanderlust 108 in Philadelphia

My epic day at Wanderlust 108 in Philadelphia on September 30, 2017, MC’d 58:45by Matthew Rodrigues. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to run 3 miles? Or take an outdoor group yoga or meditation class? The lineup in Philly was amazing, featuring Chelsey Korus leading the massive group yoga class, Noah Levine setting an intention for the run and during his guided meditation, and DJ Drez providing music throughout. Join me and my friend Elissa Borzilleri and her daughter Ellie as we soaked up the good energy of the day. You’ll also hear from Sean Hoess, one of the founders and co-owners of Wanderlust 108, the world’s first triathlon of the mind, body, and spirit.
