Wanderlust Stratton 2016: Find Your True North

On June 16, 2016 Wanderlust Yoga & Music Festival makes its way to Stratton, Vermont. Wanderlust is a worldwide festival, taking place in Canada, Australia, and various sites in the United States, including California, Colorado and Vermont. This four day journey encompasses mindful living and healthy expression, offering many styles of yoga, meditation, workshops, lectures, music, outdoor activities such as acro & water-yoga, hiking, and various other amazing offerings; could it get any better for those looking for a healthy vacation?

Stratton Mountain Resort in Bondville, VT is the perfect place for Wanderlust, offering a vast landscape for the many classes available: from hikes up the mountain and yoga at the peak, to paddle-board yoga on the pond, and a speakeasy for musicians/artists alike, along with live music at Stratton’s well-known nightlife venue Grizzly’s. And if you haven’t visited yet Stratton Resorts ‘Village’ offers restaurants, shops, and lodging as well, all within the center of the event!

Having attended the past three years, it’s easy to say that this event offers an experience that will leave you different than when you arrived-full of inspiration, joy and a perspective that you can only imagine until you enjoy the super-dynamic Wanderlust experience!

And to top off all of the activities, the variety of teachers, performers, speakers and those who make it all happen is phenomenal. The past few years, Wanderlust brought musical offerings including talents such as Nahko & Medicine for the People, Trevor Hall, Coyote & Crow, Marco Benevento, and so many others that put on shows that left their imprint on the mountain. This year’s line-up consists of 28 yoga teachers, 11 speakers, a wide-variety of musical styles; Michael Franti, Karsh Kale, Magic Giant, Sheela Bringi, and Morley will bring their unique performances to the table. A variety of solo act’s from Francesca Blanchard, Garth Stevenson, and Priya Darshini, to DJ’s Drez, Sol Rising, Tasha Blank, and various others will keep the music flowing all throughout the weekend.

If you have yet to experience a yoga festival, this one is sure to please. Wanderlust is super-dynamic, covering all of the bases: health, music, fitness, learning, organic food-as well as being a getaway to the mountains-this is one that will make your summer one to remember!
