Shiva Rea - "Pranafication Wanderlust" & New Year's LunarSolar retreat in Costa Rica
Shiva Rea could not be more excited to join us at Wanderlust California this year and she has graced us with a blog post below. After reading her blog, check out her upcoming LunarSolar Pranafication Retreat in Costa Rica which she has also written about below!
My family and I have been sleeping outside under the moonlight for the past 6 nights on our deck near Solstice Canyon. Summer has a way of calling you outdoors, beyond walls, to soak up all that fresh prana. Festivals still are the great outdoor gatherings of our time. For me wanderlust is always about summertime pranafication - being outdoors in sun-drenched mountains, shaded by community and ignited by yoga and music in the intense beauty of Squaw Valley, Lake Tahoe. It is absolutely breath-giving not breath-taking on those mountains.
I will be hosting 24 hours at Wanderlust with Kasey Luber's media team with Wanderlusters, yoga teachers and musicians to take you behind the scenes and with the pulse of the people beginning with sunset sessions with Jai Uttal and the Wailers to the next day with fellow yoga teachers and friends and backstage with MC Yogi and Michael Franti. It will be fun to take you into the festival from the inside and also to highlight some really great things Wanderlust is committed to like the "Greening" of the Festival.
This year Wanderlust is working towards a 0 impact for the festival including bio-diesel powered electricity for sound stages. As part of Yoga Energy Activism (in partnership with Wanderlust and prAna), we are encouraging participants to join us in energy transformation at Wanderlust and on Sept. 21st for the YEA campaign towards a clean energy future. The humble goal is to bring 10,008 people together around the world to unplug and tune in and celebrate life and outdoors. Next week, we will send out tips on how to sustain your energy and keep it green during the festival.
For more wanderlusting, I will be hosting a New Year's Pranafication Yoga and Surf Retreat in Costa Rica where we will live the flow of yoga outdoors in natural light, by laterns, or jungle beach fire ceremonies. The retreat center, Blue Spirit, has just built more solar-powered cabanas where you can feel the breeze from the ocean blowing into Nosara, one of the world's most amazing surf spots and turtle nesting sanctuaries. May we all stay inspired and our wanderlusting take us to new adventures on the winding path of life.
I am looking forward to community....See you on the Mountain!
Love All Ways,
New Year's LunarSolar Pranafication Retreat in Nosara, Costa Rica
Bring on the New Year with a transformational yogadventure retreat to Nosara, Costa Rica where the jungle meets the ocean. Nosara is a world-class surf spot where the power of the warm, clear healing ocean is the primordial teacher. We will unplug, tune in, live by natural light and go barefoot in the sand that connects the elegant thatch-roof cabanas and yoga hall with the sea. Join us and create your own alchemical retreat from deep meditation to ecstatic adventure including:
In-depth prana flow yoga and meditation with optional yogadventure activities ranging from surfing, Kalarippayatu, Pranadandayoga, sunset horseback riding, to zipping down the longest, most exhilarating canopy in the world! Whether you are an experienced surfer, have always wanted to surf, or just want to go deeper into prana flow: energetic vinyasa with Shiva, we will enter the New Year in an empowering and rejuvenating rhythm of living yoga, radical relaxation, and liberating play.
