Lust for Wanderlust: Thank you! ♥

The Lust for Wanderlust event was a huge success on Saturday. Thank you to all of the amazing yogis who pushed through. It was a tough class and you could tell by the temperature of the room… that was all you people,  the heat was turned off!! Congratulations to our grand prize winner Meagan Welch, a local yoga teacher here in Victoria. Can’t wait to practice with you at Wanderlust Whistler this year.  Thank you to One Yoga Victoria for all your help and to Rachel Hurst of the Shanti Collective for organizing the event. We are so lucky to have such a strong yoga community in this city. Sending so much love to all of you yogis.

 

Here are a few photos from the evening.

wanderlust yoga festival whistler 2014

I am excited to announce that I will be leading a 60 minute alignment flow class on July 5th, 2014 at 7:30pm where YOU have the chance to win a full weekend Sage Pass to Wanderlust Festival in Whistler, BC this summer. This is a FREE class taking place at the beautiful One Yoga Victoria (201-239 Menzies Street). Additional prizes include yoga passes from One Yoga Victoria, yoga gear from lululemon Victoria, and handmade jewelry from the Shanti Collective.

Wanderlust Festival is an unforgettable weekend in the mountains of Whistler, British Columbia. It is happening from July 31st- August 4, 2014. The weekend includes so many amazing teachers such as Seane Corn, Shiva Rae, Eion Finn, Ryan Leier, Natalie Rousseau, Tina James, and many more. There are also live music performances each night from bands like Tycho, Emancipator, RJD2, DJ Drez, and MC Yogi. My experience at Wanderlust last year was of hundreds of like minded individuals coming together to spread mindfulness, positivity, and positive change to the world. Expect to give a lot of hugs, eat some great food, have impromptu massage circles and dance parties and make some amazing new friends.

I hope to see you all on July 5th and later in the month at Wanderlust. Please email me with any questions at katiethackeryoga@gmail.com. Love and light friends ♥

Recipe: Frothy Almond Coconut Chai

Ever since I spent the weekend at Salt Spring Centre of Yoga I have been hooked on the idea of fresh chai in the morning. There are so many benefits to the combination of spices used in chai and you can enhance the nutritional value by blending it with organic coconut oil and  organic raw honey. Cardamom is great for enhancing digestion. Cinnamon helps to relieve morning congestion and increase circulation, Ginger  and clove aid to reduce inflammation and ama (built up undigested food residue in your digestive system. No your body is not as efficient as you think!). You will need a blender to make the chai.

Get Outdoors: The Adventures of Domestikatie & Branstand- La Push, Washington

Over May long weekend we had the privilege to take the COHO Ferry across to Port Angeles, Washington. From there we went to Shelton, Washington to visit Brandon’s grandparents. Brandon is a dual citizen since his mom is a California girl. After Shelton, we headed to La Push, Washington for some camping and surfing. La Push is located on the west coast of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. La Push is (unfortunately) most known for being featured in the Twilight series. I would prefer it to be know for the amazing landscape that makes you feel as if you are in a tropical location.
