4th of July weekend. Typically this would consist of me getting together with family and friends, grilling a ton of food, having some fruity drinks, playing games, watching the fireworks around Denver, or going camping somewhere. This year was different. I spent the weekend in Aspen for Wanderlust. Wanderlust is basically mountains + yoga + music. Well, in Colorado anyway.
How do I even begin to explain Wanderlust? The word is defined as ‘a strong desire to travel’ which seemed quite appropriate for this event. There were about 3,000 people attending and a lot of them were from out of state. Makes sense though. Who wouldn’t want to practice yoga in one of the most beautiful places in the world? Myself and 5 other girls were among the 3,000. Our days were filled with yoga classes, hiking, shopping around Snowmass village, riding the gondola up and down the mountain, eating lots of Kashi, making friends, photography workshops, and stand up paddle yoga. And then dancing + music at night. Oh, and the weather was beyond perfect. We were all sore and sunkissed by the end of the weekend.
“Your inner light shines when you are at peace with yourself and the world around you. Let go of the struggle and feel the beauty inside you. Allow all to just be and just be you.”
Wanderlust part II and III coming soon… xoxo
