Every year since I turned 18 I have travelled. It may be near, it may be far but there is always an adventure. I’ve played it safe, I’ve gone out of my comfort zone, I’ve worked my butt off and I’ve moved to the other side of the world and back. I don’t think it will ever end, and I hope it doesn’t.
The great thing though is that travelling has encouraged me to be part of a wider global community where I can learn different languages, try different foods, understand the cultural differences of each individual I come across, make friends with people I wouldn’t have ordinarily done so.
It has also opened up a world of opportunities for me as it was while I was travelling that I found my true love for yoga and all that it brings.
That is why I’m looking forward to Wanderlust Festival Cockatoo Island 2015, it’s in my own backyard but it’s an adventure, it brings together a wide range of people of all ages, cultures, experiences to just be there at that point in time enjoying the adventure that life brings to them.
As a yoga teacher, and in life in general it is important to get out of your comfort zone, in fact I don’t think I’ve ever been so far out of my comfort zone. But I can push myself further (in a good way of course) and am looking forward to immersing myself in 3 days of yoga, music, wellness, food, adventures, water sports and more. I can’t wait to hear from key international teachers on everything from health, yoga, food and wellness.
I love learning through experiencing. The practicalities of how the body, mind and soul work are so important to me and not everything can be shown physically but what I am finding through my travels and my experiences in yoga and importantly from meeting others who are on the same path as me is that so much of our emotional or subtle self is expressed and shown in physical traits or feelings.
So what is Wanderlust Festival Cockatoo Island Oz to me as a Wayfarer? It is the chance to learn from the best, to get to know my community from all across Australia and the world, it’s my chance to just be, to take it all in and express myself in the way that I truly love. But most importantly it’s an adventure of a life time, it’s the travel and the wanderlust that I crave the most at this point in time and I am so incredibly grateful and humbled to be able to be part of such a wonderful, creative, inspiring and awesome festival that brings together the global community in all of its wonderful forms.
See you at Wanderlust Cockatoo Island Feb 2015!
