[Squaw Valley USA] February 17, 2010- Wanderlust returns to Squaw Valley USA this summer, bringing together the world’s leading yoga teachers and top-tier rock and roll performers in a legendary setting of breathtaking beauty. Amidst breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe and a mountain full of summer activities from hiking to the High Camp Swimming Lagoon and Spa, concert-goers can enjoy yoga, incredible music and all Squaw Valley has to offer. This four-day yoga and music experience is a feast for the body and the senses – a place to relax, unwind, bend, dance, revel, and contemplate. The second annual Wanderlust Festival lands in Squaw Valley USA July 29 – August 1, 2010.

This year’s Wanderlust Festival features even more of the good stuff – expanded yoga offerings, more great music, a complement of organic foods and biodynamic wines, and the same incredible scenery and community that made last year’s event such a hit. The New York Times said it best, writing that festival-goers get “the same rejuvenating charge from raucous dancing as from mindful breathing.”

Wanderlust showcases a range of teachers, classes and styles that will inspire and challenge all practitioners, from the curious beginner to longtime students. This year’s yoga line-up features some of the most notable names in yoga, including Seane Corn, Baron Baptiste, Shiva Rea, Duncan Wong, Elena Brower and Schuyler Grant. Wanderlust will include other renowned instructors like Doug Swenson, Jason Nemer & Jenny Sauer-Klein (the Acroyogis), Janet Stone, Les Leventhal, Rusty Wells, Sianna Sherman, Annie Carpenter, Vinnie Marino, Brock & Krista Cahill, Suzanne Sterling and Maya Fiennes, among many others.

The music at Wanderlust is a soundtrack for the weekend, featuring both music to flow to and music to dance to. After a day of focusing on the inner self, at night it’s time to let loose at one of the high-energy dance parties down at the Kula Village. Leading the charge this year are Moby, Bassnectar, Brazilian Girls and Pretty Lights. Also performing over the weekend are Yard Dogs Road Show, Beats Antique, Rupa & The April Fishes, MC Yogi, Orgone, Princess Superstar, Dave Stringer, DJ Dragonfly, Ana Sia, Shaman’s Dream, Rara Avis, Desert Dwellers, and many more.
