Day 1: Wanderlust Festival
Here. Happy. Quite simply so.
Easy early morning drive up to Tahoe (notwithstanding the 2 hours of sleep; rest will come, no doubt, some other time this weekend), sun rising to the East, still wearing last night's makeup. It will sweat off soon. Parked and unloaded and all kinds of settled in, ready to meet the day.
The sun's ridiculous.
We're planted right smack dab in the middle of Squaw Village, overlooking the fountain with the best balcony a girl could hope for. The Village is still very much waking up; sleepy-eyed yogis are dribbling in, mats in hand, but things are still fairly quiet. That will change.
Today's agenda: a sweaty vinyasa with Jonny Kest under the big blue sky, detox flow with Seane Corn (can't wait), and finally a five elements vinyasa with Janet Stone. I've not practiced with either Jonny nor Seane, and am interested in learning more about Janet's approach to incorporating the elements into her vinyasa. Unbelievably stoked to just be a student for a few days, to really just soak it all up.
Already running into dear and familiar faces every time I turn a corner. This is the pleasure and the delight of being here at Squaw. One big family spandex-clad family reunion.
I hope to be sore by day's end.
