It’s about that time again! Wanderlust Yoga Festival. What happens during Wanderlust? A lot of celebration — yoga, music and nature. Wanderlust’s 2011 line-up boasts musical acts Michael Franti, Girl Talk and Andrew Bird while wellness leaders like Deepak Chopra, John Friend, Rodney Yee and Shiva Rea are attending at least one of the gatherings this year. All of them are within the nation’s most inspiring natural scenery.
The Wanderlust Vermont will be held June 23 - 26 (for the first time in Vermont) at Stratton Mountain Ski Resort, followed by the original Wanderlust California, which returns for its third year in Squaw Valley USA in North Lake Tahoe, California from July 28 – 31.
Terrific vibes fill the air at The Standard Miami this weekend as we welcome the Wanderlust festival. Everywhere you look you see yogis hustling around from one class to the next as they soak up the sun on the yoga dock and various areas transformed into the ultimate feng shui yoga spaces.
Elena Brower instructing her class on our Yoga Dock
Are you ready for Wanderlust Miami this week, March 17-20th? We hope so because The Standard Miami is ready to have you. The event is a 3 day yoga retreat with some of the finest yoga instructors and spa treatments at our hotel. One of the four teachers this year is Elena Brower, a powerfully glowing woman who brings healing to all who visit her classes in New York City. You can also read some very helpful nuggets of wisdom in her columns, The Art of Attention, Huffington Post or CrazySexyLife.
Elena took a moment to speak about her upcoming week in the sun, her music inspiration, and even provide some tips before Thursday.
In your own words, tell us what this grand week is about… for us civilians who don’t know what Wanderlust is?
For me, this festival is about healing, listening, practicing, dancing and getting closer to yourself.
So does every yoga instructor have their own flavor [for instructing] this week to set them apart from others? What’s yours?
Definitely. My mission on this planet is to help everyone get more spacious and clear about who they are and how they can serve in the world. I combine Anusara yoga with what I’ve learned from Rajanaka yoga and my coaches at the Handel Group to serve up an intense but super nurturing practice.
This weekend we’re hosting a yoga and music extravaganza at The Standard, Miami.

There are only a few tix left so book your reduced priced ticket for Friday here and Saturday here. See you on the yoga mat!
