My friend Lisa had a brilliant idea…“Let’s go to Wanderlust!” Saturday mornings, we usually meet for ballet class. The connection between dance and yoga is especially strong with us. We took our ballet training to the lawn at Reunion to try out dance yoga to MC Yogi, yoga slackers, and to practice yoga and drink Kombucha tea outside in Dallas.
The yoga dance party reminded me of Edge Fest in the 90’s…waving our hands from side to side in Crescent Lunge like we were at a concert while emcee spun his 90’s mix saying, “Only love is real.” Lisa and I were laughing and snapping our fingers in sync.
The stunning Faith Hunter led a very happy yoga crowd (imagine the largest yoga class ever) through a high energy yoga flow.
The favorite event at Wanderlust had to be Slacklining. It was exhilarating, challenging and humbling. I think Lisa and I thought we might have an edge being ballet dancers but instead of going straight up to find your balance, it’s better to take yourself off your balance and then find it. It’s a great way to access those balancing muscles that we don’t use on a daily basis. Slacklining could become one of those addicting hobbies. I’d like to put a line in my backyard and just play outside…my kids would love it too.
If you live in any of the areas Wanderlust 108, find a friend and sign up. I can’t wait to go again. There’s something so freeing about practicing yoga outside. Find your true north at Wanderlust and unplug from the ordinary.
