The Ultimate Nature, Music and Yoga Festival

The Ultimate Nature, Music and Yoga Festival

Anyone who loves music, yoga, and outdoor activities should hear about this event. From spiritual guru Deepak Chopra and Anusara yogi John Friend to mash-up artist Girl Talk, Wanderlust is full of top-notch yoga classes, creative workshops, inspiring people and awesome music. The festival is currently scheduled to take place in three U.S. cities this year (Miami, Lake Tahoe, and Bondville) but is likely to expand in the near future. Jeff Krasno, who founded Wanderlust with business partner Sean Hoess, gave us his insider thoughts on yoga and what to expect at this year’s festivals.

What sets Wanderlust apart from the typical music festival or yoga retreat?

Wanderlust is very unique in many ways – but the experience is so different – largely because it is so participatory. People are doing, not just listening and watching. People are hiking, doing yoga, actively cultivating their minds. They can literally be in the Bread & Puppet Theatrical performance or in a burlesque show. The can take a drumming workshop. Wanderlust challenges people and pushes their limits. And I think that is why its such a transformative experience for so many people.

Who is yoga for?

Anyone can do yoga and benefit from it. My kids do it. My mom does it… kinda.

Why should people curious about yoga try it?

Because it makes you feel better. And nothing in the world is better than feeling good.

What Can Yoga Do For You?

How has your practice affected your overall well-being?

Well, I’ve lost a ton of weight – even though that wasn’t the real goal. It keeps me feeling strong and balanced. We work ridiculous hours – so I need something to keep my head clear and my body strong; yoga is great for that.
