It is so exciting to announce that one of the best yoga festivals in the world happens to be held in my backyard! Wanderlust Oahu is a fantastic four day event held on the gorgeous North Shore of Oahu, bringing together yogis, musicians, dancers, lovers and wanderers from around the world. This upcoming event will be my third, and it promises to be even better than ever!
This year the Wanderlust team has put together another great lineup for the Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday event days, but there are also workshops and retreats previous to the main event, including teacher training and special classes with Shiva Rea. This gives yogis from around the world a whole week to deepen their practice in one of the most beautiful places on earth. The event will be held at the Turtle Bay resort on Oahu’s North Shore, home to the famous ‘7-mile miracle’ of world famous winter surf, gorgeous beaches and exceptional natural environment. Turtle Bay itself is nestled into hundreds of acres that offer swimming, hiking, horseback riding, golfing and more. It is one of the nicest resorts on the island, and offers a wonderfully luxurious escape. For the more intrepid among us, there is camping at nearby state parks and onsite at designated campgrounds.
The yogi lineup this year features yoga superstars Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Eion Finn, Shakti Sunfire, Janet Stone and awesome local yogis Tara Lavery, Kate Baldwin, Nina Beatty, Noelani Love and Ki Wagner. At each festival there is a diversity of teachers, styles and practices to suit nearly everyone’s needs and practice level. In addition to yoga, you can find aeiral yoga, hoop dancing, mediation and so much more. You can find the full schedule here to begin dreaming about your perfect festival….
And the music! One of the most wonderful things about the festival is the location: not only are there nooks and rooms for yoga everywhere, Turtle Bay is situated on a small penninsula, which is the perfect natural stage for a great lineup of musicians, dancers and more. Nahko and Medicine for the People are the headliners, and you can find the whole music lineup here.
