Wondering if the yoga festival life is right for you? We've compiled the top 8 reasons we're stoked for Wanderlust this summer. Hope to see you there!
1. Taking classes from world-class yoga teachers
Whether you’re an experienced yogi, meditator or are brand new to practice, you can create your ideal day at Wanderlust. There are classes for all levels, from beginner to expert, as well as a wide variety of practice styles and venue types. Mix in meditation or relaxing yin classes with sweaty, uplifting vinyasa, or challenge yourself with something completely new like standup paddleboard yoga or aerial yoga. Feel the energy of hundreds of yogis moving together in our flagship outdoor venue, get a lift to the top of the mountain to practice under the skies at 6,000 feet, or drop into an intimate, indoor class accompanied by a live musician or DJ. Each festival offers a taste of internationally recognized teachers as well as top local instructors.
2. Jamming out to our favorite musical artists
Music is the beating heart of Wanderlust Festivals. True to Wanderlust's name, their music lineup is just as much about discovery as it is about seeing artists you know and love. Revel in a wide variety of musicians in myriad settings, from epic main stage acts to intimate acoustic shows to the many performances accompanying our yoga classes.
3. Improving our meditation practices
Wanderlust brings in a ton of different people to inspire us to grow in our mediation practices and gives us the space to practice on the tops of mountains.
4. Exploring nature
We can't wait to go outdoors and dive deep into the surrounding natural beauty with one of Wanderlust’s many guided adventures. Whether we are lacing up for a trail run or sunset hike, drift off during a mountaintop meditation with live music, or amping up our adrenaline on a mountain biking tour, we know we are going to have a blast.
5. Listening to some of the world's greatest mindful speakers
The Speakeasy is Wanderlust Festival’s lecture series on subjects pertaining to the mindful life. With an inspiring lineup including prominent authors, yoga teachers, musicians, health experts, business leaders, and filmmakers, the Speakeasy provides a casual setting for speakers to offer a short lecture and respond to attendees’ questions.
6. Eating mouth-watering local and sustainable foods
Grass-fed, cold-pressed, small-batch, gluten-free … if it’s got a hyphen and is good to eat, it’s likely at Wanderlust. Wanderlust offers healthy fare throughout the festival, whether you’re grabbing a quick bite from the hand-picked vendors in our Food Co-op or sitting down at the Farm to Table Dinner, our mountain top local food experience. For those with a wee bit of thirst, we also offer Wanderlust Uncorked, small gatherings featuring the best craft wine and beer, and even better company.
7. Indulging our inner shoppers
When we get a little downtime, we can't wait to check out the Kula Market.
Visit this hub for local artisans to share their wares with our community. Soak in an abundance of creative energy and browse a selection of handmade, homespun goods for a shopping experience you can feel good about.
8. Spending time with community
One of our favorite festival highlights is always spending time with our yoga family, building our community and sharing our love of yoga. We cannot wait to make friends and spend time with like-minded people over yoga flows, music, hiking, speakers and more.
