Wanderlust Vermont

June 21 - 24, Stratton Mountain Ski Resort, Bondville, VT

It's getting close to that special time of year; the world's leading yoga teachers, top musical acts and DJs, renowned speakers, top chefs and winemakers, all together on top of a mountain! That's right - Wanderlust Vermont.

This year, Manduka will be sponsoring 'The Nest' - a haven where you can relax, reground, and have a deeply inspiring inward moment amidst all of the exciting Wanderlust action. Adorned with natural candle light, aromatherapy bliss, and atmospheric downtempo beats, Manduka's Nest is an ideal setting for yin and restorative yoga classes and meditation practices. During the day, Manduka's Nest features a complete schedule of yoga and meditation classes led by a wide range of teachers and experts. Yoga music pioneers Shaman's Dream will be the musical curators of the space, performing DJ sets and working with Wanderlust's best instrumentalists during classes. At night, the Nest morphs into a chill-out lounge, a mellow alternative to Wanderlust's more raucous main stage.
