This is the second year I have attended Wanderlust, both times at Stratton, Vermont, though they have festivals throughout North America (coming in just a few days to Copper, Colorado; then on to Squaw Valley, California; Whistler, B.C.;Quebec; and in 2014 on to Chile and Hawaii!). I always have such an amazing time; surrounded by yogi, health nuts, dancers, creators, designers and life-lovers, I can’t help but come away feeling refreshed and really ready for a fantastic summer season. Beyond the great attendees, the teachers—whether it be yoga, dance, meditation, music or hiking—are the best in the business, and I always learn something new (body and soul).
We had as much fresh, filtered water as we could drink courtesy of Camelbak. Imagine if all those plastic bottles had been drunk, how much garbage would have been made? ALL festivals should have free, fresh water, no?
Check out my awesome shorts from Victoria Keen, made in NYC! (That’s me on the right, the designer herself, Victoria, in the gorgeous blue dress—her own design, of course—in the middle, and my friend Cara Joy on the left.)
It was fun to walk around the village area, and enjoy healthy treats (like So Delicious coconut milk ice cream pops, KIND bars, and Tumeric drinks) the random music that played all afternoon and all the awesome vendors selling yoga clothes, incredible jewelry, and more.
Mrs. Meyers had a big booth set up at Wanderlust, perfect for the frequent hand-washing I availed myself of. My friend Cara Joy poses here with all the lovely samples the company was passing out.
Yup, I definitely needed some hot-tub time to soothe my sore muscles! I stayed in the gorgeous Hearthstone condo at Stratton, just minutes from all the action at Wanderlust. It was an ideal accommodation for the group of us ladies, with pool, incredible mountain views, large windows and porches to enjoy them from, and tasteful decor (not to mention a really nice kitchen!)
Even though I thought I was too tired to, on the last day of Wanderlust I took Coby Koblowski’s fantastic mountaintop dance class. Grooving to great music, with a cool breeze blowing, and loving those views was one of my favorite experiences at the festival.
