Looking to do some soul-searching this summer? Head out on an outdoor adventure? Take your yoga practice up a notch?

Look no further, Wanderlust offers you all of that and more. Wanderlust festivals are long-weekend retreats geared toward yoga enthusiasts, families, foodies, and outdoor adventurers. If yoga classes led by master teachers, mountaintop meditations, trail runs, mindful hikes, and stand-up paddleboard yoga—followed by more meditation and yoga—sounds like a good way to spend your summer vacation, head to Wanderlust for a transformational weekend you’ll never forget.

Planning summer vacations has always been tough for me. I have high expectations and don’t get a lot of time off, so I use my precious vacation time carefully. Being a yogi, meditator, musician, and nature-lover, my requirements for vacation include getting outside, lots of yoga, plenty of time and quiet to meditate, live music, healthy food, and cool people. When I went to Wanderlust in 2013, it was like the weekend was built for me. Where else can you take a yoga class, hear a lecture, go for a mindful hike to the top of a mountain, and dance at a concert all in one day?

Where Is Wanderlust?

There are six summer festivals this year, each all-out celebrations of mindful living. Snowshoe, Stratton, Aspen, Squaw Valley, Whistler, and Tremblant were chosen for their awe-inspiring natural beauty. But if you can’t make it to one of those, find out if there is a one-day Wanderlust 108 mindful triathlon in your city.

If you’re sold on the weekend festival, but can’t decide which amazing location to check out, join me at Squaw Valley in July, it’s the original location, the largest, and was the highlight of my 2013, so I can’t wait to go back this year.

If you’re still not sure, watch this three-minute video to get a feel for what to expect at Wanderlust.
