Amid all the hustle and bustle, there is a festival built on unwinding, unplugging and recharging. Wanderlust Whistler achieves just that through yoga, music, courses and exploring the beauty that the mountains have to offer. It doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned yogi or just beginning to find your practice, there is something for everyone. With so much being offered, the excitement of trying aerial yoga or hiking to Symphony Lake can even cause a repeat attendee to over book themselves. It is possible to achieve balance and maximize your experience, here’s how to find your om at Wanderlust.
Music is a integral part of the festival. Wanderlust even refers to is as its heartbeat. The importance of sound means that you will be able to find everything from headliners filling up Olympic Plaza to music lead movement meditations.
Tip: Depending how much you want music to be part your Wanderlust experience, you may want to refrain from scheduling this type of activity. Many of the music based events fall in the evening and do not require pre-registration. However, there are a number of activities that are built around music such as Hoop Dance, Music Meditation Hike, and Dance of Shiva that do require registration.
Involve yourself in conversations around health, mind, politics, community and self growth at one of the many lectures. The speakers are leading many of their fields and have come to share their knowledge with you.
Tip: Try including a lecture in your daily schedule. Not only will you be feeding your body but your mind as well.
Always wanted to try Paddle Board Yoga or maybe Acroyoga has been on your list for a while now- whatever your desire, there is a yoga for that at Wanderlust. What’s more, some of the best instructors out there can be found leading the practices at this festival.
Tip: Get outside of your comfort zone and try something that you might not otherwise gravitated towards. You never know, it might just be an enlightening experience!
Nourishment of all kinds can be found at Wanderlust but the food variety is especially plentiful. A Farm-to-Table dinner, BBQ and many vendors will be serving up tasty local and sustainably sourced food items.
Tip: Many of the pre-registered events that surround food are a great time to mingle with your fellow Wanderluster’s. Be sure to add at least one food based experience to your schedule.
Wanderlust is an incredible festival held over 4 days all over Whistler. While exploring yoga, music, food and lectures, it is possible to find your own unique balance. After a long, activity and soul-searching filled day, you are going to want to rest and that’s where Whistler Reservations comes in.
