How to Best do Wanderlust
“At Wanderlust, our mission is to help you find your true north. True north is not a final destination: it’s a path, a journey, and a yearning to explore and connect to your life’s purpose.”
Upon first reading Wanderlust's mission, it’s easy to be skeptical. How exactly do they intend to help me find my way there? What does that even mean? Like Google maps?
All joking aside, we at La Forma wanted to debrief Wanderlust in a quick and easy blog post that we compiled from our own research to give you a better idea of how to have the time of your life at the festival.
We read through Wanderlust’s website, did some research on How To Best Do Wanderlust, even watched some videos of the yoga retreat/concert/hiking trip/yogi dreamland. Everywhere, and we do mean everywhere, from the website to the blogs to the videos to the comment sections on the videos: everyone loved it. It didn’t take long for us to begin to see why.
Wanderlust Festivals take place in natural resorts worldwide, and not just anywhere, the most awe-inspiring locales you can think of. Wanderlust is more than a yoga festival. It is a yoga retreat, a weekend-long concert, and a marketplace all mixed into one. At each unique location, Wanderlust brings together “world-class teachers, tastemakers, and experts in mindful living in a fun-filled, creative environment” (at least according to their website).
The idea is choosing your own adventure to find your path and thus your purpose. One of our interns admitted that although she doesn’t speak fluent yogi, she imagines this would be the way a lot of them would describe heaven.
The biggest thing to realize is that you don’t need to be a yogi to have fun at Wanderlust! There is so much going on, and we’ve decided that the best way to ‘best do Wanderlust’ is to choose your adventure and run with it. Immerse yourself in the culture and creative environment they are promoting. This festival is more than activities, speeches, and delicious food, it’s an opportunity to escape from reality and undergo an experience unlike that of any other.
Go to a yoga session. They have the best of the best instructors hailing from around the globe whose bios alone are encouraging and fun. Since they offer multi-level yoga and meditation sessions there is no reason for you not to go and at least try one. Even if it’s not your thing, go to see what all the hype is about.
There are marketplaces and shops to widen your palette where you can try organic and whole foods that are healthy, but still delicious.
Let the music morph with your heartbeat as you experience a music festival unlike any other. After spending your days stretching, exercising, and getting that much closer to your true north, reward yourself with live concerts from famous musicians and DJs from around the globe.
Finding yourself may be hard, but expressing yourself will be easy when you visit the La Forma booth.
We hope to see you there.
