The Great Escape: Wanderlust Festival 2018

Escape to one of the world’s largest yoga lifestyle events this August — whether you're a seasoned yogi, a music-lover, or a foodie looking for some zen, Wanderlust Festival is the adventure for you!

From August 23rd to 26th, Wanderlust Festival will be returning to Tremblant, and what better way to get your stretch on than at a 4-day retreat in the heart of the Laurentian mountains? Learn all kinds of yoga styles from around the world, meet some of the world’s leading thinkers and yoga instructors, try local and organic food, and enjoy live music in the great outdoors!

They create events like this every year, bringing together extraordinary people and extraordinary talent for festivals that change lives. Wanderlust also provides online classes and goods to help you keep you inspired on your health journey.

This year’s festival will feature some of the world’s most celebrated yoga talent, including Eoin Finn, Annie Langlois, Genevieve Guerard, Chelsey Korus, Briohny Smyth, Caley Alyssa, Britta Rael, Melanie Richards and more. The musical lineup includes unmissable performances from Tank and the Bangas, Alice Phoebe Lou, Lakes of Canada, Beautiful Chorus, October's Child, Tavana, Sweet Crude, and The Bergamot! Don’t miss the chance to meditate with amazing leaders like Insiya Rasiwala-Finn, Janick Leonard, Nigel Walker, Susan Agrios, and Martier Sound Meditation. And of course the food — enjoy local, organic, and delicious delicacies all weekend long!

A retreat is a great way to get away, get grounded, and to think. At Wanderlust Tremblant you can get inspired by some of today’s thought leaders. Hear Audrey Sckoropad’s 10 easy and accessible tips for making a healthy routine; “Human Connection Specialist” Mark Groves has tools and techniques to get you feeling satisfied in your relationships; and Robyn Youkilis, leading expert in holistic digestive health, can help you listen to your body with recipes and helpful tips.

An event of this scale is quite the undertaking, and Wanderlust has partnered with some fantastic companies to bring it to life. You’ll be seeing Adidas programming, designed to help you incorporate sports into your everyday life. You’ll be hydrated all weekend long thanks to Flow’s high quality, naturally alkaline spring water, with brand new flavours like organic cucumber + mint, and organic lemon + ginger!

Yoga is all about wellbeing, and Wanderlust believes we all deserve equal access to feeling great. With that in mind, the company offers scholarships for their events like Wanderlust Tremblant! Scholarships are awarded based on need and community involvement, so be sure to explain how Wanderlust Tremblant will help you and those around you if you apply!
