Sea Salt & Savasana
Wanderlust’s mission is to help you find your true north, wherever your journey may take you. On the breathtaking North Shore of O’ahu, we’ve hand-selected world-renowned guides—yoga and meditation teachers, outdoor instructors, musical performers, speakers, artists and chefs—to light your path. In 2019, we’re offering even richer experiences like full-day Thursday immersions and new outdoor excursions to make O’ahu an unforgettable waypoint in your journey to true north.
Start your day at sunrise with stand-up paddle board yoga on Kawela Bay. Dry off, then invigorate your mind with cutting-edge Speakeasy talks, grab a taste of fresh island cuisine, and catch a wave off Kuilima Point. In the evening lose yourself in the beat of three live DJs at our signature silent disco. That’s just the beginning. Wanderlust O’ahu serves up countless ways to harness what the Hawaiians call ‘mana’: the power of elemental forces. How will you tap in to your true north?
From the moment you step foot on this northernmost point of O’ahu, you feel the energy: the trade winds, the pulsating waves, and the verdant landscape with its lush, floral aroma all collaborate to captivate. Turtle Bay Resort sits between two breathtaking coves, where surfers have for decades been chasing the perfect wave. Today, it is a place for seekers of a different kind. When Wanderlust Festival alit upon the North Shore six years ago, the spirit of aloha became infused with the essence of namaste, and a new yogic center was born.
When you unroll your mat at Wanderlust O’ahu, you practice with some of the world’s most beloved teachers, moving with the rhythm of the surf caressing Kuilima Point. But there may be days where your mat, in fact, never unfurls because you were pounding the sand on a beachside trail run and cruising to Kawela Bay for a Stand Up Paddleboard yoga session. As the stars reveal themselves, that’s your cue for mingling and melding with the beats of Wanderlust’s late night musical escapades.
Go beyond your festival schedule and dive into a full day experience. Choose one of four Immersions designed to focus and promote hands-on learning with world-renown instructors like Ana Forrest, Jose Calarco, Eoin Finn, Chelsey Korus, and Elizabeth Gilbert.
