All Things Yoga At Four-day Fest
Breathe in the fresh air, feel invigorated by the ocean, step onto a paddleboard and … do yoga!
Wanderlust yoga festival, which travels the world, is coming to the North Shore Feb. 28 to March 3, offering four days full of every variety of yoga, as well as performances, entertainment, nature walks, surfing, hula lessons, lectures, craft and food vendors, dining and more.
Yoga novices and experts can learn from the most renowned names in the field with a variety of pass options beginning at $108 for a day’s worth of activities, all based at Turtle Bay Resort.
Yoga master Shiva Rea will teach courses from Vinyasa flow to Yoga Trance Dance. Fellow yoga expert, athlete and surfer Eoin Finn will guide seekers through everything from yoga foundation and alignment principles to surfing.
The two are among more than 30 health and healing experts who are attending to share their knowledge.
The schedule features a lineup of classes suitable for the yogi or yogini in anyone, including “Meditation – Get into the Vortex With Your Blissedout Self,” “Wholehearted Hooping Basics,” “Nutrition Consultation” and “Bhakti Flow.”
There also are classes for the more intrepid, such as Introduction to Slackline Yoga. Slacklining is a niche sport that demands excellent balance on a one-inch-thick band that is strung between two trees or anchor points. Incorporate yoga into the mix, and this is for the limber and acrobatic.
In other words, a lot more excitement and adventure is involved than the words yoga and meditation might normally imply.
The website states that even the lectures are not “stuffy,” but rather “informal conversations that take place in an intimate lounge setting.”
The festival’s mission is to offer a celebration of mindful living, which includes practicing yoga, eating well and being green for the purpose of healing the spirit and being responsible stewards of the earth.
