Top 5 High Vibe Happenings at Wanderlust Squaw Valley
23rd July 2018
Is it possible to pick just five? The Pukka Herbs team left Wanderlust Squaw Valley feeling connected, empowered, and ready to keep working for the wellbeing of people, plants, and planet. It truly was a full weekend of health, wellness, and good vibes.
Here are five of the multiple reasons why we walked away from the event smiling, renewed, and ready to keep creating positive change.
Chelsey Korus’s Feminist AF yoga class
Chelsey’s unabashed positivity celebrated and embodied the energy of the entire festival. This class was a combination of dancing, heart opening exercises, and power moves. We howled at the top of our lungs for all the women who have ever felt silenced in the world. From Beyonce to TLC, Chelsey’s song list coincided perfectly with her empowering postures and encouragement to connect with the women beside you. 90 minutes of true #feministaf sisterhood.
Mary Beth LaRue’s Values + Embodiment class
No yoga needed here. This was a class of conversation. Thirty people sat cross legged on the floor and joined Mary Beth in a conversation about values and designing our lives around the ones we cherish most. We practiced deep listening as people shared the values they felt most deeply about and how each value represented something a little different to each person.
Do hard things! Not only was attempting our favorite yoga poses on a stand up paddle board entertaining, it was also incredibly humbling. Our teacher, Jeramie Vaine, gave us space to try, fail, feel humble, laugh, and take ourselves and our practices a little less seriously. We were ready for a challenge, and we found it!
Connection with fellow Wanderlusters
Wanderlust fosters a feeling of openness, and we were able to connect with so many different people and energies at the Pukka booth. New tea drinkers, seasoned matcha latte makers, first time attendees and Ayurveda practitioners, all brought positivity and conversation and some great questions about Pukka’s sustainability practices and the functions of the different tea blends. We loved meeting every one of you!
We celebrate the sponsors, vendors, and teachers who were utilizing Wanderlust as a place to bring awareness to the foundations and causes that they believe in. Pukka Herbs accepted donations in exchange for boxes of tea or full cups of tea and was able to save 1440 trees thanks to our partnership with Tree Sisters, whose mission is to “rapidly accelerate tropical reforestation by inspiring and channeling women's nature-based feminine leadership into local and global action.” That’s definitely something we and our friends at Wanderlust are proud to support!
We’re still flying high from Wanderlust Squaw Valley, and look forward to connecting with more of you at Wanderlust 108 in Boston and Brooklyn, and at Wanderlust Wellspring in Palm Springs!
