Countdown to #SOCIALintheCITY at Wanderlust Whistler BEGINS// Written by Mara Falstein

Already, I feel like Wanderlust is around the corner. This will be my first time attending and I am beyond pumped. Having been heavily involved in the intersecting worlds of yoga and lululemon over the last few years, attending a Wanderlust festival is something I’ve always wanted to do. And now, along with my good friends over at Social City Networking, I am making my dream a reality! A little over three months from now, I’ll be heading up to Whistler for five days of yoga, hikes, music, friendship and whatever else the trip has in store for me.

It was about a month ago now that we got the opportunity to start scheduling our classes. On spring break in Hawaii (and therefore three hours behind the West Coast), I woke up at 7am to an email from Sara that they’d released the classes mere hours ago and they were already starting to fill. Springing to life, I logged on, only to find to my surprise that a number of the classes had already booked up. It seemed the aerial yoga and stand up paddle board classes were all but fully booked up. Hoping everyone was as eager as I with over scheduling themselves, I hopped onto a number of waitlists and secured a spot in a few classes for each day of the festival. Finally giving myself a second to take a breath after the mad scramble to secure spots in classes, I couldn’t help a little smile from spreading across my face. I was going to Wanderlust. This made it feel real. These were classes I would take, with friends I know and strangers I don’t. I’m going to frolic in the sun, hike amongst the Whistler mountains, explore the lakes on a stand up paddle board (gosh darnit I WILL get off that waitlist!) and make some pretty incredible memories.

Wanderlust Festival 2015

Unplug from the ordinary. Adventure awaits.
Wanderlust Whistler is a 5-day celebration of mindful living.

Wanderlust brings together a remarkable group of yoga and meditation instructors, musical performers, speakers, artists and chefs for a transformational retreat at Whistler Blackcomb resort in Whistler, British Columbia. This is an experience that will get into your mind, body and soul. And here at Social City Networking, it’s one of our absolute favorite local festivals ever – we have never had such incredible cOMMMunity experiences at any other festival yet!

Regardless of what starts you on your path, Wanderlust is an experience that will leave you different than when you came — with new ideas, new friends, newly-discovered abilities, and greater peace. Trust us, and join us in getting #SOCIALintheCITY + #FindYourTrueNorth.

2015 lineup PRACTICE // Yoga + Meditation 
Whether you’re an experienced yogi, meditator or are brand new to practice, you can create your ideal day at Wanderlust. There are classes for all levels, from beginner to expert, as well as a wide variety of practice styles and venue types. Mix in meditation or relaxing yin classes with sweaty, uplifting vinyasa, or challenge yourself with something completely new like standup paddleboard yoga or aerial yoga. Feel the energy of hundreds of yogis moving together in our flagship outdoor venue, get a lift to the top of the mountain to practice under the  skies at 6,000 feet, or drop into an intimate, indoor class accompanied by a live musician or DJ. Each festival offers a taste of internationally recognized teachers as well as top local instructors.

LISTEN // Music + Speakeasy + New Artists + Inspiration + Learn
Music is the beating heart of Wanderlust Festivals. True to our name, our music lineup is just as much about discovery as it is about seeing artists you know and love. Revel in a wide variety of musical performers in myriad settings, from epic main stage performances to intimate acoustic shows to the many performances accompanying our yoga classes. And if you get inspired by the artists on stage, you can try your hand at a few tunes with drumming, guitar, and other music workshops.

The Speakeasy is Wanderlust Festival’s lecture series on subjects pertaining to the mindful life. With an inspiring lineup including prominent authors, yoga teachers, musicians, health experts, business leaders, and filmmakers, the Speakeasy provides a casual setting for speakers to offer a short lecture and respond to attendees’ questions. It’s a chance to interact with, and learn from, some of the most engaging thinkers at Wanderlust.

EXPLORE // Move + Stretch + Hikes + Runs + Biking + Stand Up Paddleboard + More
Get outdoors and dive deep into the surrounding natural beauty with one of Wanderlust’s many guided adventures. Lace up for a trail run or sunset hike, drift off during a mountaintop meditation with live music, or amp up your adrenaline on a mountain biking tour. The local guides will take you to new heights – literally!
