A memorable 3rd edition of the Wanderlust Festival

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to be invited to the magnificent Mont-Tremblant village for the 3rd edition of the Wanderlust Festival. It features an impressive range of activities such as various yoga classes, musical presentations, hiking, dharma conversations, and much more. In a nutshell, this festival unites all the necessary ingredients to nourish both body and soul. The workshops are led by internationally renowned specialists, including a few Lolë ambassadors. — Eve Guilbert

Janick Léonard

What does it mean to meditate? And why start now?

To be honest, Janick didn’t actually answer the question herself, but instead skillfully encouraged us to reflect upon our own answers. Janick’s calm presence inspires confidence. It was a pure delight to listen to her speak about her experiences with meditation in a simple manner. She makes meditation accessible to everyone.

Geneviève Guérard

The meeting between discipline and

The 90 minutes of yoga guided by the former first soloist of the Grands Ballets Canadiens included a wonderful blend of enchanting music and fluid movements. Ever so gently, Geneviève guided us through a vinyasa-style asana sequence to prepare us to “play” with slightly more advanced postures. As a yoga instructor, I truly appreciated the intelligent sequence and the precise instructions. There was an abundance of fun and creativity!

Nicole Bordeleau

Qi ging yoga: Healing energy!

It was a full house when I attended my first qi gong class with the great Nicole Bordeleau. This type of yoga focuses on a series of movements aiming to release physical and mental tensions in an effort to access our vital energy. The movements look a bit a like a mix of yoga and contemporary dance. Everyone can practice qi gong because it is gentle on the body and easy to follow. After the session, I felt both invigorated by a wealth of energy and inspired by Nicole’s personality.

Marie-Ève Bertrand

POP SUP: AquaFlow

Marie-Ève founded her own sup yoga company, PopSpirit. She guided us through a series of yoga postures on large boards that look like those used by surfers. Marie-Ève knew how to build our confidence and make the experience both profound and enjoyable. This particular field requires significant concentration in order to remain balanced on the water’s surface, which is constantly moving. The core stabilizer muscles, located in the torso, are called into play far more than in a traditional class. Sup yoga will please both yogis and the more advanced. I loved the experience and I am excited to do it again.

Eve Guilbert

Yoga teacher at Wanderlust and Énergie Cardio, Lolë ambassador for three years

I discovered yoga in 2008. Having done ballet from childhood to adolescence, I found in yoga the same benefits that dance brought me, and even more. In 2009, I started teaching different styles to group classes in fitness centres. This experience was very rewarding to me because, among other things, it helped develop my confidence. Meanwhile, my passion for yoga has grown steadily. Last year, I made the best decision of my life, which was to follow the Wanderlust teacher training. What I want more than anything is to continue to learn and to help students through the practice of yoga.
