Yoga festivals are a magical experience. When likeminded yogis from all over the world gather to Om, sweat, and dance, it’s about as high as good vibes can go. From the peaks of Squaw Valley to catching local 108s, each event I’ve been to has delivered a transformative opportunity to reset and refuel. I’ve cried, laughed, and chanted my heart out, and left feeling like a brighter, lighter human.
The best part about Wanderlust Festivals is the variety of locations, types of events, and durations you can choose from.

Mostly As: 4-Day Destination Festival
You work hard, but you know the value of escaping away to reset and recoup. While travel is something you love, you don’t get to do a ton of it, so you like to save up your vacation days and splurge on something exciting a couple of times a year. A four-day destination festival won’t break the bank on your PTO and will leave your soul satiated.
Mostly Bs: 2-Day City Festival
Travel is wonderful, but if you’re going to take a trip, it’s probably with the family or somewhere overseas. You prefer your yoga close to home and in small doses. Being immersed in a yoga experience makes you excited, but you also tap out after a couple of days.
Mostly Cs: 1-Day 108
You love yoga, but you also love running, dancing and Om-ing. A local108 festival in your backyard checks the box on all your athletic sides and will be just the right microdose of good vibes to keep you going until your next kick in the pants race or workout.
Mostly Ds: Passport
You’re an adventure junkie and on the go so much you barely have time to unpack and repack. You spend your money on chasing the next adventure and little will stop you from getting there. A Wanderlust Passport will give you the freedom to jet-set from Whistler to Oahu without skipping a beat. And when you’re ready to decompress, you can catch a 108 or city festival in your area, as you please.
