It’s that time of the year again: Yoga, Nature, Music & More! // Wanderlust Festival 2014 – Whistler // #SOCIALintheCITY

WANDERLUST FESTIVAL – WHISTLER 2014 // #SOCIALintheCITY

As a born and raised British Columbian,  being active in the natural surrounding that our providence provides is one of the biggest contributions to my personal well-being and happiness. Activities such as hiking, yoga, paddle boarding, running, rock climbing not only keep me healthy, but always bring a genuine smile to my face.

So naturally when I first heard about a music festival focusing on most of these things coming to Whistler (which is only really a hop, skip and a jump away), I became excitedly curious. I ventured my way to the first ever Canadian date of Wanderlust Festival, and definitely got way more than I bargained for.

Wanderlust Festivals are full-blown, all out, ecstatic celebrations. Not only are they set in truly magnificent natural environments (such as our very own Whistler), but they bring together the world’s top musical acts, leading yoga teachers, renowned speakers, thrilling performers, and exquisite chefs, putting it all together in to one of my now personal favorite festivals. My body, mind, and spirit all feel as if they’ve been through some sort of rejuvenation/liberation combination.

This year’s Wanderlust Festival features back-bending yogi gurus such as local wonder Eoin Finn (of Blissology Yoga), Seane Corn, Shiva Rae, Ryan Leier (of One Yoga), Alex Mazerolle (of Girlvana Yoga, and DISTRIKT MOVEMENT), as well as the incredible musical acts Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires, RJD2, Tycho, Emancipator, The Soul Rebels, and many many more!

Wanderlust Festival was created by three friends; the 20+ year husband and wife duo of Jeff Krasno and Schuyler Grant, and their mutual friend (and Jeff’s business partner of a decade), Sean Hoess.  With festivals operating in Brooklyn, Tremblant, Austin, Atlanta, O’ahu, and many more, this is a festival that is greatly loved, wondrously successful, and only going to be getting bigger and better with each year!
