Squaw Valley Wanderlust 2015 July 17th – 20th


Squaw Valley’s breathtaking mountain scenery and positive energy makes for a truly unique and inspiring place to practice yoga. Squaw Valley was the original birthplace of the Wanderlust Festival, which has now expanded to seven locations around the world. A dedicated yoga studio is a natural, exciting extension to the original festival that is still held here every year.

Unique to Squaw, some classes incorporate the extraordinary landscape, taking the practice outside on the mountain as well as classes that start in the studio and wrap-up with a hike, bike ride, run, swim in Lake Tahoe or, come winter, skiing and riding on the mountain.

Through Squaw’s partnership with Wanderlust, the studio offers classes taught by some of the most recognized yoga instructors both regionally and nationally, as well as multi-day retreats incorporating yoga, activities and accommodations.

Wanderlust’s core mission is to create community around yoga & mindful living. The opportunity to do this on a 365-day basis in Wanderlust’s birthplace is beyond exciting. The integration of a yoga program with all of the outdoor activities and natural beauty of Squaw Valley creates a totally unique experience for local residents and guests.

Wanderlust is a one-of-a-kind festival bringing together the world’s leading yoga teachers, top musical acts and DJs, renowned speakers, top chefs and winemakers, and much, much more — all in a setting of breathtaking natural beauty.  We’re talking about fun in the sun and dancing under the stars. Hiking on peaceful trails and gettin’ your down dog on at the top of the mountain. Sipping poolside cocktails with your friends, and then enjoying a tasty farm-to-table dinner with views of the surrounding mountain peaks. Early morning meditations and all-night chakra spinning musical performances — it’s an all-out ecstatic celebration in the most awe-inspiring locations in the world.Wanderlust Map July 2015
