Say ‘Ae to Adventure.
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.
Whether savasana is your spirit pose or you like your asana strong and sweaty, we’ve got you covered with classes for all levels and styles. Where else could you experience invigorating vinyasa flow, relaxing yin classes, stand up paddleboard, and aerial yoga all in one day? New in 2019: Float and fly to your heart’s content now that SUP yoga and aerial yoga are included in the price of your ticket.
Music is the heartbeat of Wanderlust Festival. You’ll feel the pulse in the subtle spinning of a brilliant DJ, in the sweet rhythms of our acoustic meditations, and our electric main stage performances and silent disco will leave your body awash in energy. Whatever your taste, the musical discoveries that await at Wanderlust will leave you with new favorites for practice and party alike.
When was the last time an idea lit you up? Welcome to Wanderlust’s Speakeasy, where the inspiring ideas of thought leaders find a most ready home in the minds of yogis who have created space for inspiration. Our intimate and informal lecture series covers everything from holistic health to environmental action, from personal transformation to citizen engagement—the topics that matter most to our conscious community.
After a long day of feeding your soul, you’ll need some healthy sustenance for your body. Our handpicked, local food vendors offer quick and healthy fare as you navigate your way from class to class, and our family style, Farm to Table dinner offers the pleasure of a delectable organic meal with friends.
The name says it all: it really is out of the ordinary. This is the sumptuous spot to get still between classes, to sip from a coconut and admire acro yoga antics, and to share an ahi poke bowl with your newfound friends.
The Kuilima Market
Admire the work of local artisans without setting foot beyond Turtle Bay! Wanderlust hand picks unique and vibrant vendors you can feel good about supporting as you collect mementos of your time on the North Shore.
The Food Co-op
You can grab a craft kombucha or a fresh superfood smoothie as you float by, or stick around a while and cruise tent-to-tent to sample the community’s best local vendors. Whether you’re raw, vegan or vegetarian, gluten-free or paleo, the Food Co-op serves up a bounty of festival fuel.
They say you’re only as good as the company you keep, and we are proud of the partners that we magnetize to create unique and memorable micro-experiences at Wanderlust O’ahu. You might find yourself sampling local craft brew, silkscreening a hemp tote, or partying at a pop-up performance.
Music at the Main Stage
When the sun goes down at Wanderlust, it’s time to shake your asana! Wrap up your daily practice with some good old-fashioned booty shaking on Kuilima Point. Headliners to be announced in November 2018!
