Lustin’ in Wanderlust: A First Timers Guide to Wanderlust. My Top Five Must Haves and Must-Sees!

voyagerYoga lovers unite! 

It’s my greatest honour to be teaching at Wanderlust Whistler this year July 31 – Aug 4. I am so excited to be there to lead classes and have also started filling my schedule with all the amazing things that I want to do. 

Like some of you, it’s my first time to Wanderlust and it can seem pretty overwhelming. But, all the stories I have heard and the experiences everybody tells me just reaffirms the fact that it’s going to be spectacular! 

I’ve consulted a few of my fellow yogi friends (Alice H, Derek M, Don S and Melissa H) and their wise advice for an amazing and transformative Wanderlust weekend, with so many like minded individuals include the following…

Kick it all off with the opening parade and join the party that follows. It is quirky and amazing all at the same time and the perfect way to initiate into your Wanderlust experience

Bring some walking shoes and make your way to a morning hike where your hard work will pay off with the beautiful mountain scenery of Whistler as well as having one of the many talented musicians play for you. 

Find your way to the peak of the mountain for a class for the best scenery, the freshest of Canadian mountain air and the experience of a lifetime!

Practicing with several hundred yogis at the main stage will connect you into that greater whole. The energy will be incredible and you’ll get all the sunny goodness while you do it!

Wanderlust gives you a fantastic opportunity to practice with some of the greatest teachers and pioneers of the yoga world but don’t overlook the teachers you’ve never heard of. They are going to be hidden gems! 

UnknownWhen it’s time to slow down the physical body, then head to the unique lecture series Wanderlust has put together called the Speakeasy. They’ll have inspiring talks on mindful living with a fantastic line up that spans all cuts of people. 

And finally… (and sadly not gluten free friendly). Get your way to pick up some really amazing and interesting artisan breads made fresh daily at PureBread (

Can’t wait to see you there! 
Can’t wait to take in the experience myself! 

In love and always in your service,
