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.

The South Bay Rocks! Operation Shanti

Join Los Angeles-based yoga teacher Garth Hewitt for this fund-raising event to help Operation Shanti build a new orphanage in Mysore, India. The donation-based yoga class will be held on March 31st from 3-5pm at the Hermosa Beach Community Center; all levels are welcome! There will also be an After Party with a DJ, food, an auction, and a raffle to follow, from 5-7pm.

Please pre-register for this event by signing up at garthhewittyoga.com or losangelesrocksoperationshanti.wordpress.com.

Operation Shanti's Mission is...

To directly improve the lives of exploited, at-risk, destitute children and the forgotten, suffering elderly, enabling them to become "beacons of light" and share the same gifts of peace, goodwill, and generosity with others for the rest of their lifetimes.

We help the poorest and neediest children and elderly, and the forgotten destitute, with the basic human needs: food, shelter, medical services and educational assistance. As we believe that every human can and should stand on his/her own, we are there to help the destitute begin to help themselves.

Take your yoga off your mat - register for the event and participate in change!
