Packing for Wanderlust

Today, the YogaOutlet.com team is embarking on a weekend adventure full of culture, nature, and inspiration at the Wanderlust Yoga Festival. Wanderlust is an all-out, euphoric celebration, bringing together the world’s greatest yoga teachers, top musical acts, inspiring speakers, and enticing performers. These festivals travel across the country, touching hundreds and thousands of people in the most awe-inspiring locations. Luckily, this weekend Wanderlust is setting up camp in our backyard-- the beautiful Squaw Valley at Lake Tahoe. So, now that our classes are scheduled and our tickets are printed, what do we pack? 

Aside from the obvious yoga mat and leggings, what do you bring to your favorite yoga festivals and retreats? Tell us in the comments below by 11:59pm PT Wednesday, July 23 for a chance to win a mat bag!

Here's what threads and treasures we suggest for wherever your wanderlust takes you this summer:

1. A yoga mat and bag, obviously. Whether you're an athlete who loves savasana or a yogi with adrenaline, roll up your mat, stuff your yoga mat bag with your favorite snacks and prepare for mindful movements.

2. A face mask - There is no better time to bring out your inner beauty then when you are soul-searching on your mat. Take 15 minutes one night, after a day of yoga, and smother your face in an all-natural beauty mask.

3. Printed pants - Nothing screams, "I'm celebrating life," more than a bold pair of printed yoga pants. And trust us, your positive vibes will rub off on everyone around you.

4. A cute crop - Going to grab fresh pressed juice after class? Pack a lace crop bra, or a crochet crop top to pair with your favorite flowy pants for a bohemian studio to street look. Here are a few of our favorites: Jala Clothing Devi Crop Bra // Free People Racerback Lace Crop Bra // Beyond Yoga Pique T-back Bralette // Liberty Garden Tibetan Crop Top

5. Basil oil - Depending on where your wanderlust adventure is-- the ocean, the mountains, the meadow-- it's very likely that you will be exploring the outdoors. Pack a little travel size tube of natural basil oil to keep the bugs from nibbling. 

6. One statement piece - We all know that a girl's best accessory is her smile, but a statement scarf, gladiator sandals or layered gypsy jewels will add a unique style to your wanderlust wardrobe. 

7. A journal and pen - Start by jotting down a list of new things you want to try and challenge yourself to leave your comfort zone during your trip. While at your event, take notes of things that inspire you along the way.

8. A water bottle - bring your own reusable, glass bottle and refill at the water stations provided by the event. I don't know about you, but we're going to keep Tahoe blue. 

9. Mala beads - Chances are you are surrounded by breathtaking views of mother nature. Wake up early, grab your malas and hit the great outdoors for some morning meditation.

10. Printed schedules - To ensure a stress-free retreat, we suggest you print any tickets, class schedules or itineraries ahead of time.

Yet, perhaps the most important thing of all, don't forget to bring an open mind and good intentions.
