This summer, Thredbo will add Wanderlust – one of the world’s most popular yoga and mindfulness festivals – to its exciting and extensive schedule of summer events. Held in awe-inspiring natural settings throughout the world, Thredbo is the perfect location for the unique festival, offering calm away from the major cities, coupled with the purest alpine air to inspire body, mind and soul. The festival will feature four massive days of activity from 18th– 21st February 2016, where guests will unplug, unwind and enjoy music, mindfulness and art amongst the beautiful Snowy Mountains.
Wanderlust is considered to be the largest multi-day yoga event in the world, bringing together a remarkable group of yoga and meditation instructors, speakers, artists and chefs in a celebration of mindful living. One of the world’s top yoga teachers, Elena Brower, will bring her masterful yoga and meditation classes to Wanderlust, on her first visit to Australia. Based in New York City, her classes are a masterful, candid blend of artful alignment and attention cues for your body, mind and heart. Briohny & Dice Iida-Klein, otherwise known as Bryce Yoga, have also been announced on the line-up, alongside local teachers who are ready to inspire and excite participants and their practice.
Meditation and yoga workshops, hula hooping, slacklining and inspirational talks are just some of the activities on offer over the four days of wellness. Nestled amongst the incredible Snowy Mountains region, guests will indulge in the great outdoors with guided hikes, paddle boarding classes, horseback riding and the chance to walk to Australia’s highest point atop Mt Kosciuszko. What better way to achieve true balance than to Conquer Kozzie and enjoy the nature of Australia from its highest peak.
Wanderlust is more than a festival for yoga fans – it’s a festival for anyone who wants to unwind in the incredible alpine scenery and enjoy true relaxation. Throughout their stay, guests will also be treated to performances by some of Australia’s leading musicians, including singer-songwriter Xavier Rudd & The United Nations, who will electrify audiences. Festival Director, Jonnie Halstead, says “Xavier personifies what Wanderlust is all about – the perfect fusion of conscious roots, deeper connection and good time summer vibes!”
Having made waves across the international music scene, Dustin Thomas will join Rudd on the roster, bringing his infectious mix of beat-box and soul folk songs to Thredbo’s natural amphitheatre. Didgeridoo dance band Wild Marmalade and DJ Taj Rishid will also ignite audiences in Thredbo throughout the festival.
Wanderlust is just one of many big events hitting Thredbo this summer, alongside Thredbo Blues Festival, Snowy Mountains Country Music Festival and much more. With this epic array of festivals, alongside season-round activities for all ages and interests, it is clear to see there’s something for everyone at Thredbo this summer.
