As a mom, it feels like I always have to have so much stuff with me.
For my kids, for me. Some necessities and some for just in case, but it ends up being a lot of stuff.
And I’m carrying all of that around while I keep tabs on a never ending to-do list: it’s exhausting.
Which is why one of my favorite experiences ever was at a Wanderlust yoga festival a few years ago- because I didn’t need to have much with me and there wasn’t a pressing to-do list. I recently went to Wanderlust 108 in Charlotte and it was so amazing to get that feeling back. If you’re headed to Wanderlust 108 in Chicago this weekend, let me give you a little heads up on all the things you don’t need to bring with you.
You can leave behind any sense of insecurity. There’s no judgement. You just take your yoga pose as deep as you can, but don’t worry what anyone else is doing. There’s a feeling of celebration of any accomplishments. There’s no such thing as what a pose is supposed to look like, you can just go ahead and try something new. Maybe yoga on a slackline or hula hooping or try inverting in aerial yoga.
You don’t need any boring yoga pants. Plain black yoga pants might be a wardrobe staple, but go ahead and find a fun pattern- the easier to be able to find yourself when you glance through the festival’s photos, too! Blue yoga pants with pink and orange lotus flowers? Oh, yeah!
And really, let’s face it, underwear is the last thing you need standing in the way of you and nailing that inversion. So under your fun patterned yoga pants, be bold and go commando. Cottonelle®, a Wanderlust sponsor, knows it takes a bold confidence to go commando, but once you’ve got it – it makes all the difference.
Only Cottonelle® has CleanRipple Texture designed to clean better, so you’re clean enough to Go Commando.
While there’s not much you need with you at Wanderlust, it’s nice to have a few essentials in your yoga bag when you’re heading to the studio or for after class.
