Yoga’s been fused with more things than an all-purpose stir-fry sauce. You’ve done it in 40-degree heat, on a stand-up paddle board, maybe on horseback and even underwater.
Which makes this combination seem almost too organic: Yoga, live music, wine tasting, and stunning natural surroundings.
Those are the four prongs of Brooklyn-born Wanderlust Festival, a combination of all things wonderful and nothing too weird.
Start your day with an early morning meditation, cruise for some handcrafted goods in the vendor village, and downward dog with an A-list ensemble of yoga instructors including Eoin Finn, Duncan Peak, Amy Ippoliti and Future Sound of Yoga.
After the sun sets, really spin your chakras into sync with a combination of biodynamic wines, an organic smorgasbord by top local chefs, and an estactic soundtrack by Ladi6, The Bamboos, Goodwill (Ministry of Sound) and the Sufi Qawwali Ensemble, all laid down under the stars.
Your exact itinerary is TBD – that’s wanderlust.
