Wanderlust Tahoe will take your yoga to a new high

July 16, 2014

As much as we love our local yoga studios, sometimes a change of scenery can be just what's needed to achieve a breakthrough in our practice.

The Tahoe Wanderlust festival, from July 17-20 in Squaw Valley, California, may be one of the best changes of scenery around.

Wanderlust organizers say they look for stunning natural settings when choosing sites for their festivals. Squaw Valley is no exception. A popular spot for skiers in the winter, summertime visitors enjoy blue skies, clean mountain air and low humidity. Lake Tahoe’s crystalline waters are nearby.

Squaw Valley hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics, and some may still draw inspiration from the passion and dedication of the elite athletes who competed there.

Wanderlust offers a variety of experiences to suit a wide range of participants. Those who are serious about their yoga will want to check out the classes on yoga and meditation, taught by respected instructors from a number of disciplines. There is additional training for yoga instructors. Wanderlust is almost as well known for its live music as for its yoga - a diverse musical lineup keeps energy levels high.

Others might just be looking for a fun and healthy vacation, with yoga as a component. For foodies, the festival will have special farm-to-fork, vegan and wine-tasting dinners.

Outdoor expeditions have been organized, including mountain biking and river rafting.

Here at The OM Collection, we’d find it hard to resist the standup-paddleboard yoga session on Lake Tahoe!

Camping is available for Wanderlust festival-goers, as is a range of indoor lodging options. It’s also easy to find fun things to do on your own at Lake Tahoe.

We like that Wanderlust creates such a great sense of community. You’re just as likely to gain a new insight from a fellow participant as from one of the instructors.

Plan to attend Wanderlust? Visit us on Facebook - we’d love to hear your experiences!

Women often ask me which styles I recommend for pre/post natal. Having just had a baby I decided to put together my favorite OM styles that were perfect while my body was in transition. It can be so tempting to make it all about the baby, but the more you continue to nurture yourself the easier the transition to motherhood is.

The last several months, many of us have spent an unusually large amount of time at home. If you're anything like me, you may have begun to feel confined by the walls of your home and trapped by the need to manage the stuff in your space. Excess stuff can also distract you from the work that you know needs to be done and rob you of the precious time needed to build a life that you love. Here at the OM Collection we believe less is more.
