Yoga fun in the sun

The summer season of festivals of yoga, music, feel-good culture and magic has begun. The first Wanderlust festival opened in Vermont:

Well+Good NYC –  Behind the scenes at Wanderlust Festival The Wanderlust Festival kicked off its third year in Stratton, Vermont yesterday. And Well+Good came to experience our first one ever (we had to check out the buzz), joining yoga and music lovers from the all over the northeast, who poured into the adorable ski village for four days of non-stop superstar yoga.

This spread has some nice photos of the activities.Wanderlust is the leading organizer of yoga festivals (seven in 2013), but there are others springing up all over the country, just as yoga conferences in the model of Yoga Journal have proliferate. There will be a yoga festival in Virginia in Labor Day weekend, Floyd Yoga Jam, but it’s hard to consider that in the DC area. It a five-hour trip down the Shenandoah valley. But I guess that’s the point. None of the festivals are smack in the middle of metropolitan areas: people want to get out into nature and landscapes.

Wanderlust does organize yoga in the city events, this year in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.
