While you, me, and our substitute Vinyasa teacher are in yoga today, the rest of the city’s yogis are at the Wanderlust Festival, in Squaw Valley, Calfornia, which kicks off today. The second annual yoga, music, nature event is like an uber yoga retreat: It draws top yoga teachers and thousands of yogis for four days of serious practice and four nights of live music and yogic debauchery (read: trance dancing and organic wine tasting).
Although we couldn’t join Elena Brower, Vinnie Marino, and Schuyler Grant for class in an open-air yoga pavilion cantilevered into the side of a mountain (wah!), Anne Kerr Kennedy, the founder of Hyde Yoga, a company based in New York City, has created the ideal souvenir: Wanderlust yoga apparel.
Schuyler Grant in Hyde Wanderlust Drawstring pants
So when you text your friends at Wanderlust to let them know you’ve fed their cats and checked their Windowfarm plants, you could drop a hint that you’d like something from the Hyde Yoga merch table. Or you can just buy a pairafter the festival at Hyde Yoga when they’ll be available to the rest of us airchair Wanderlusters.
Hyde Wanderlust Drawstring Pants
The best-selling divine drawstring pant pants ($45; 92% organic cotton, 8% spandex) modeled by Kula Yoga Project founder and Wanderlust co-founder Schuyler Grant.
Hyde OTM Halter You do some good when you buy this top, since 10% of the proceeds from its sale go to Off the Mat, Into the World, a grass roots organization that uses yoga to inspire social change. It’s a long, booty-covering top with slits on the side seams ($30; 92% organic cotton, 8% spandex).
Hyde Skye Tank This higher neck basic tank (not pictured) provides coverage and has bra support. But it’s not constrictive ($30; 92% organic cotton, 8% spandex).
Can’t get to the merch table? Wanderlust graphic pants and tops are available next week after the festival at YogaHyde.com
