This weekend there are two big music and yoga festivals happening in the United States. The Wanderlust Festival, in Lake Tahoe, California, features Anusara founder John Friend, Shiva Rea, and Ducan Wong. The musical line up is just as impressive with Michael Franti, MC Yogi, Gillian Welch, and (one of my personal favorites) Andrew Bird.
Meanwhile, in Tulso, Oklahoma the DFest will host bands such as The Black Crowes and Cake. The festival also features a yoga conference (for a list of the teachers click here).
For both festivals, participants can purchase tickets to see the music, take the yoga classes, or both.
All this yoga and music festival talk makes me wonder, is this the next big trend in yoga? Are people going to be more likely to go to a yoga conference if it’s combined with their favorite performers? Or will the crowds and the noise make it harder to practice?
