This year was my 4th year at Wanderlust Stratton Vermont! I decided for the first time ever to enjoy the festival without my mat. The first two years I ran around attending every class I could, squeezing every bit of energy out of my body and loving it. Last year I taught at the festival and had the opportunity to share a different experience thru the lens of a presenter. This year I decided to experience the festival without practicing on my mat. I LOVED IT.
Wanderlust is truly an experience for EVERYONE.
I decided to be a true Vermonter and spend as much of the festival enjoying the beautiful mountains. I loved stand up paddleboard (although my board hit a rock and I ended up falling in the lake and entertaining a group of golfers ;). Meeting new friends at the farm to table dinner next to the mountain before amazing music and dancing the night away to DJ Drez was the perfect first day. Saturday/Solstice started with a hike/gondola ride and exploring the mountain before a playful AcroYoga class that made me feel connected without the stresses of where to put my mat down. Renting bikes and going riding around the Sunbowl was amazing and enjoying the rush flying down the Stratton Access road was a highlight. Wrapping up the perfect day with wine tasting and more amazing music and entertainment. Sunday wrapped up the weekend with vendor visits and shopping while getting the chance to see old and new friends as we all head off on our own true north until next year.
This year was by far my favorite. Sharing an amazing house with friends from all over the world each with their own experience to be had yet enjoying the festival together at different times. As I prepare to make my move to Jamaica and get ready for my upcoming retreat at Jamaica Inn Hotel in September. I will be sure to add some Stand UP Paddleboard Yoga to the itinerary and keep the Wanderlust Vibe going as I'll always come back to Wanderlust Stratton Vermont.
Thank you. Namaste.
