Wanderlust Festival 2010

Wanderlust Festival 2010 Announced

Yoga, Music, and Spectacular Views Set This Festival Apart From the Rest


The second annual Wanderlust Festival returns to the stunning peaks of Squaw Valley USA in Lake Tahoe, CA from July 29 – August 1, 2010.  This four-day yoga and music experience is a feast for the body and the senses – a place to relax, unwind, bend, dance, revel, and contemplate
.

This year’s Wanderlust Festival features even more of the good stuff – expanded yoga offerings, more great music, a complement of organic foods and biodynamic wines, and the same incredible scenery and community that made last year’s event such a hit.  The New York Times said it best: festivalgoers get “the same rejuvenating charge from raucous dancing as from mindful breathing.”

Wanderlust showcases a range of teachers, classes and styles that will inspire and challenge all practitioners, from the curious beginner to longtime students.  This year’s yoga line-up features some of the most notable names in yoga, including Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Baron Baptiste, Doug Swenson, Duncan Wong, Elena Brower and Schuyler Grant. Wanderlust will include other renowned instructors like Annie Carpenter, Brock & Krista Cahill, Jason Nemer & Jenny Sauer-Klein (the Acroyogis), Kerri Kelly, Janet Stone, Les Leventhal, Maya Fiennes, Rusty Wells, Sianna Sherman, Vinnie Marino and many others.

The music at Wanderlust is a soundtrack for the weekend, featuring both music to flow to and music to dance to.  After a day of focusing on the inner self, at night it’s time to let loose at one of the high-energy dance parties down at the Kula Village.  Leading the charge this year are Moby, Bassnectar, Brazilian Girls and Pretty Lights. Also performing over the weekend are Yard Dogs Road Show, Beats Antique, Rupa & The April Fishes, Ana Sia, MC Yogi, Orgone, Princess Superstar, Dave Stringer, DJ Dragonfly, The Mayapuris, Shaman’s Dream, Rara Avis, John Shannon, Desert Dwellers and many more.
