Last month, I was able to attend Wanderlust Oahu while visiting family in Hawaii. This month, Wanderlust came to my city so I definitely had to go! The San Francisco event was a Wanderlust 108 meaning that it is a half day event featuring a running session, a yoga session and a mediation session.
“1 = Unity 0 = Wholeness 8 = Infinite Love” – Wanderlust
The run was a 5k (3.1 miles) on narrow dirt paths through Golden Gate Park. I would definitely note that the run was more of a fun run than a race.
After finishing the run portion, participants had a lot of time to wander around the various vendors before settling down for some yoga.
If you’re like me, I hate sitting still. It’s funny, I always dread meditation but always end up loving it (especially when you just get to lie down in the sun).
Overall, I can’t say that the 108 event was my favorite but it is perfect for someone that wants a small sample of experiencing a Wanderlust event!

When I first began my yoga practice, I never expected to ever attend a yoga festival. I did not even know that yoga festivals existed. After all, I’m not that much of a yogi. Interestingly enough, I decided to attend Wanderlust Oahu a couple weeks ago and I loved every minute of it.
For starters, the location speaks for itself – HAWAII?! The festival is held at Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore – it doesn’t get any better than this. When you need a break from the festival, you can go to the beaches, the pool or even leave the resort to explore the rest of what the North Shore has to offer.
Positive Vibes Only
This was honestly one of my favorite parts. What an experience to be surrounded by so many positive and like-minded individuals.
A unique aspect of Wanderlust Oahu is that you have the chance to learn about Hawaiian culture through classes other than yoga.
Though it costs a little extra, I highly recommend taking a SUP yoga class because when else are you going to try SUP yoga in Hawaii? It was challenging and it was relaxing in the warm Hawaii water.
