Top Moment 1: Morning Meditation Hike

Suffering from a bad bout of indecision about how to spend my very first full morning at Wanderlust, I decided to ditch the yin class I’d signed up for and find a way to get outdoors. I ended up choosing what became one of my favourite classes during Wanderlust. For the Morning Meditation Hike, we met Garth Stevenson at the trailhead. Garth arrived a quiet but looming presence with his large upright bass strapped to him like a backpack and we took off into the woods. After a 20 minute walk, we ended up at a large rocky area surrounded by trees. We plunked down and settled as Garth unpacked his bass, a looping pedal, and a small portable speaker and got set up. What followed was 40 minutes of beautiful, improvised music inspired by the nature around us, as the sounds of Garth’s bass settled in between the rustling of wind in trees, birds singing, and the gentle padding of runners on the path below. It was so beautiful and a perfect way to set good intentions for the day ahead.

Top Moment 2: “Hustle & Flow” with Alex Mazerolle at the Lookout
Again throwing schedule to the wind, I joined my #SOCIALintheCITY pal Sara and our friend Anita from Social Yoga for our afternoon activity: a ride up the gondola to a yoga class held at the peak. After a beautiful thirty minute ride up the side of the mountain, we arrived at the peak and made our way over to one of the most beautiful yoga studios I’ve ever seen. They had converted a lookout deck into a tented, “indoor” yoga studio complete with views of the mountains which actually took my breath away. It was in this picturesque setting that we enjoyed a Hustle & Flow class taught by Alex Mazerolle, in which we enjoyed a fast-paced flow to a medley of hip hop and R&B songs strung together into a playlist by DJ Hustle.

Top Moment 3: Lululemon’s Secret “Into The Woods” Party

The event of the evening was a mysterious party in the woods hosted by Lululemon. We arrived outside the Whistler lululemon to check in before boarding a shuttle to our mysterious location. We arrived at a party which felt like a summer soiree so grand it easily could have passed for a wedding reception. Under trees connected by strings of twinkling lights, we drank kombucha and gin cocktails, enjoyed a delicious catered dinner by Bearfoot Bistro, indulged in artisanal marshmallows hand-torched into smores by Archimallows, and danced the night away under the stars.
