Jonny Kest's "Beautiful Mind | Beautiful Body:
Vinyasa Rasayana Yoga"
Jonny brought his signature juicy vinyasa class to Wanderlust on Thursday for a 10:30am free flowing class at the Gaiam tent. Throughout the class yogis learned how harness the breath and let go to enhance the sweetness and flow of their daily lives. Best part of the class? Listening to remixes of The Doors by a live DJ while we did handstands and sun salutations. Rasayana is the path of rejuvenation and vinyasa is the path of fluidity. Pretty awesome.

Take me to the river! Shiva offered her signiture Prana Flow energetic vinyasa to a packed house Thursday afternoon at the Gaiam Tent. Accompanied by Steve Gold and his full band, Rivers of Prana was an energetic awakening and a beautiful way to bring home an amazing full day of classes at Wanderlust.
