Thank You Vermont!

Posted by on 6/27/11 in Uncategorized

Thank you to all the Wanderlusters who came out to make our inaugural Vermont event such an amazing experience. We joined together in community to brave the weather and raise the vibration on Stratton Mountain, keeping things light and sunny on the inside while the rain was falling on the outside. It was so beautiful to watch the magic of the weekend unfold day after day - thank you to all the teachers, musicians, vendors, and ticket holders who helped make Wanderlust Vermont an unforgettable experience. We hope to see all of your smiling faces at Wanderlust California, in the meantime check out our video and photo highlights from each day below.

DAY ONE

Wanderlust Festival kicked off with a bang on Thursday with thousands of yogis taking over Stratton Mountain to bend, stretch, open, and rock out in community celebration.

We had such an amazing time at the Opening Ceremony with our dear friends Garth Stevenson, Shakti Sunfire, Sonya Kitchell, Suzanne Sterling, and Vusi Mahlasela. This truly set the mood for this year's Wanderlust Vermont, it was magical to say the least. Click here to see the photos from Thursday!

DAY TWO

After a shakti-soaked kickoff on Thursday, our sun salutations finally paid off as we were blessed with at least a moment of sunshine on Friday. Despite the weather, spirits reached through the clouds and yogis were seen floating, flying, and smiling all over Stratton Mountain. After an asana-packed day of backbends, hip openers, and arm balancing, Deepak Chopra blessed us with an amazing lecture, and the sweet sounds of Andrew Bird serenaded us into the night. Check out some of our favorite highlight photos on Facebook.

DAY THREE
Saturday boasted an array of amazing yoga classes, eclectic performances, stimulating Speakeasy lectures, and epic concerts. Our sun salutations finally paid off as Day three also gave us our first glimpses of sunshine here in VT, setting the stage for what promises to be a great closing day here at Wanderlust.

After an amazing Saturday that boasted our first sun-filled moments of the weekend, Michael Franti & Spearhead took the stage and rocked the masses for what was one of the most epic Wanderlust musical performances of all time.

Celebrating yoga, music, and community is one of the main pillars of the Wanderlust Festival, and there was no larger celebration on Saturday than the very special Off The Mat, Into The World Yoga Aid Challenge class w/ Michael Franti and Seane Corn

DAY FOUR

The closing day of Wanderlust featured final classes from WL favorites John Friend, Elena Brower, Seane Corn, and Schuyler Grant to name a few. 

After three days of spoty weather, our sun-salutations finally paid off as Wanderlusters were greeted on Sunday with clear skies and warm sunshine. To celebrate, John Friend led a packed house through a very special Summer Solstice practice that propelled Wanderlusters into a magical closing kirtan led by Krishna Das. Check out day four photos here.
