Comprised of artists like Miachael Franti & Spoon, blended with prominent yoga teachers like John Friend & Shiva Rea, set on the mountains of Lake Tahoe 4,000 people spent three days getting limber and rocking out. Is this not the coolest thing ever? I can't imagine a more fun weekened. Wanderlust, a word meaning "strong desire or impluse to wander, or travel the world," was $170 for the weekend of yoga and rock'n'roll fun in the sun. How did this shebang get started?
“We want people to leave feeling better than they did when they came, transformed in some positive way,” stated Jeff Krasno, owner of Velour Music Group in NYC, who just happens to be married to Schuyler Grant, a yoga teacher.
Schuyler wanted “to incorporate the exuberance and the joy and the fun of a music festival, and the deeper experience of a yoga retreat,” and states “To go to a three-day fairly hedonistic experience where you’re going to be drinking, probably, and smoking a joint, maybe, and dancing all night, and then do yoga and walk away feeling good, how cool would that be?”
Their extensive list of sponsors included tons of brand names, all of which you'd expect to sponsor a festival of this calibur; including Burt's Bees, Luna Bar, and Gaiam. See you there next year?
