Wanderlust is a transformational festival that ignites and delights the senses of attendees through yoga, meditation, music, art, cuisine, and more! The event is coming to the beautiful Snowshoe Mountain Resort in Snowshoe WV in June 2018. While it is heavily centered on yoga and meditation, Wanderlust is a well-balanced and eco-conscious event nestled in nature.
Picturesque Terrains of Snowshoe WV
The 3-day event will be set in Pocahontas County, renowned for its beautiful sunsets and sunrises that paint the backdrop of the Allegheny Mountains. Snowshoe WV is nothing short of picturesque, with its diverse plant and animal life, sprawling hills, and lush greenery. With Shavers Lake nearby, attendees experience a diverse landscape that includes water, mountains, and forests. Snowshoe is famed for its winter months when tourists flock to the area to engage in winter sports like skiing and snowboarding. In the warmer months, the area comes to life with immense greenery. The climate is ideal, the days are warm averaging in the 70’s with cooler evenings. Between the landscape and climate, Snowshoe is the perfect environment for a festival!
Transform At Wanderlust
Wanderlust brings the knowledge and guidance of world-class teachers to the festival’s attendees. The event celebrates a new approach to living, an approach that diverges from the mainstream narrative of an ordinary life. Through mindful actions, festival attendees gather to learn and share. They reconnect to themselves, their peers, and the natural world.
The festival is a blissful adventure for those who come to practice and grow. It is the combination of experiences and interactions that enhance patrons lives and outlooks. Ultimately, the experiences patrons have at Wanderlust are meant to be taken home and practiced in daily life. Through the festival’s events, patrons are given the opportunity to develop and sharpen life-transforming skills.
Strengthen Your Yoga Practice
Wanderlust offers a wide range of yoga and meditation practices for all levels. Advanced yogis can be challenged by a fast-paced vinyasa flow. Beginners or individuals looking for a more mellow practice can unwind during a soft yin yoga practice. Unconventional yoga classes like aerial and paddle-board courses are also offered.
A variety of yoga styles are offered, covering all tastes. Whether you want to try yoga for the first time or expand on the moves you already know, Wanderlust’s event schedule has you covered. This year, yogi teachers Chelsey Korus, Tiffany Cruikshank, Caley Alyssa, Liza Dousson, Bibi Lorenzetti, and many more will be on site to guide yogis in their practice.
Dance to the Music
Wanderlust takes a unique approach to incorporating music into the festival’s activities. There are musical performances for patron’s dancing and listening enjoyment. However, this is not music’s only role in the event.
Some practices are even guided by live music. Patrons are exposed to music that resonates with them and aligns with the energy they’ve come to harness in their practice and daily lives. Festival attendees leave with more than just enhanced skills, but a playlist that coincides.
Snowshoe WV was meant to be an outdoor playground, making it a great venue for Wanderlust. Wanderlust offers plenty of opportunities to play outside! Explore the mountain trails on a bike or by foot with mountain biking and trail running excursions. Catch a sunset over the Allegheny mountains with an evening hike. A variety of outdoor activities are accessible, with impact levels ranging widely. Patrons can partake in social adventures or journey solo to engage in self-reflection.
Enjoy Local Cuisine
Wanderlust offers more than soul food, it offers delicious locally-grown sustenance too! Farm-to-table is the cuisine theme at the event. Organic ingredients nourish your body and provide the support needed to play hard all day into the night. The chefs and vendors are handpicked, offering inspiring dishes that will ignite your senses.
Educate Yourself at the Speakeasy Talks
Wanderlust offers educational classes and lectures taught by highly experienced individuals. Some of the world’s greatest leaders gather to share ideas on the topics of personal growth, the environment, and health-conscious living. This year’s lineup includes health and wellness guru Davidji. He will be present to share his wealth of knowledge on how to live a more peaceful and mindful existence.
Connect at The Uncommons
Social butterflies flutter throughout The Uncommons, deepening connections with friends new and old. Amidst all the activities, this is a place where patrons can simply be. Some sit to observe the space around them while others fuel up on nutrient-rich snacks and make new acquaintances. The Uncommons is a meeting ground for festival attendees, artists, performers, and teachers, a place where a community is created.
Shop Handmade Goods at the Kula Market
The Kula Market offers handcrafted items from local artists. Patrons can shop beautiful gem jewelry and other wares. The Kula Market presents a unique opportunity to connect with the hands that craft your goods and shop for unique items.
The event offers camping and indoor lodging accommodations so that you’ll be able to get a good night’s rest before you begin the day’s activities. Attendees are able to camp at the base of Snowshoe Mountain for a truly nature-based experience. Individuals interested in more luxurious accommodations can opt to book lodging at the Snowshoe resort.
The euphoria doesn’t end at the end of the 3-day event either. The Wanderlust festival has its own Youtube channel known as Wanderlust TV. It’s a place where viewers can tune in for guided yoga practices and much more! The journey simply begins at the Wanderlust festival but continues long after.
Ultimately, Wanderlust is about connecting with yourself, your food, the environment, and your community. It is a gathering that brings together like-minded individuals for 3 days to engage in deep and meaningful interactions. As a yoga festival, the event is centered on mindful action and dedicating yourself to an integral practice.
