Imagine waking up to clean mountain air and morning sunshine and spending the day taking different styles of yoga taught by the likes of Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Sianna Sherman, Dharma Mittra, and many others. In the evening, attend concerts and dance to Moby and other top musical acts. You can do just that, and much more at one of the Wanderlust Festivals happening around North America this summer.

Whichever Wanderlust Festival you go to, a four-day weekend filled with yoga, music, nature, organic food, art, and good times with the yoga community in a breathtaking location is guaranteed to inspire the soul and give everyone a natural high.

Wanderlust Whistler, August 1 – 4, 2013
The first-ever Canadian location for Wanderlust, Whistler is an all-out celebration of yoga and music set in the spectacular Green Mountains in beautiful British Columbia. Breathe clean mountain air and experience the true meaning of prana in classes taught by Tias Little, Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Rod Stryker, and many more. Canada’s Blissologist and yoga teacher Eoin Finn, whose presence is a favorite at Whistler, says, “You get to go very deep with very gifted teachers, but unlike other yoga conferences, it doesn't end with the yoga. The impact of beauty of nature, the inspired people you meet over the course of several days, and the music make Wanderlust a soul stirring experience that is impossible to beat!”
