Wanderlust Festival in O'ahu

Welcome to Wanderlust O'ahu. Yogis take their practice to the crystal clear Hawaiian ocean for standup paddleboard yoga – the ultimate test of balance. Hawaii was the birthplace for standup paddleboarding, after all, so it's no surprise SUP yoga has taken off here, too. 

Reach for the Palms

Low lunges meet tall palm trees during yogi, surfer and “blissologist” Eoin Finn’s class at Wanderlust O’ahu.

Honoring Tradition

Wanderlust O’ahu pays homage to Hawaiian culture with classes in the art of carving traditional wood surfboards with Hawaii native Tom Pohaku Stone. 

Nightly Concerts

Indie musical acts, like ALO (Animal Liberation Orchestra), rock the outdoor stage at Wanderlust O’ahu.

Hands Up for O'ahu

Wanderlust festival is the largest multi-day yoga event in the world, with annual events in Squaw Valley, Calif., Stratton Mountain, Vt., Copper Mountain, Colo., and Whistler, British Columbia. In 2013, it has expanded to Chile and O’ahu.
