In one of our recent posts we took a look at the flagrant pageantry of modern yogapop (we’re sorry for that sentence, too). In it we noted that one of the biggest proponents, the Wanderlust Festival, had held a teacher contest last year, but which was absent from this year’s promotional efforts. Or so we thought. Yesterday’s email blast informed us that it’s back! Thank goodness.
All you have to do is send in a video of your totally awesome yoga self, have all your friends vote, which should be super easy since you’re already über popular, and “they” will pick who’s worthy of teaching to the feather-haired fest-goers:
Now it’s your chance. Starting today (April 24), you can enter our contest by uploading your video to our Facebook wall. Get creative, explain why you should teach atWanderlust in 2012, and show us some of your best poses. Spread the word, because our most committed of yogic elders will choose from the three videos with the most “likes” — and the teacher we pick will get an official teaching spot at the Wanderlust of their choice this summer.
Honestly, we’ve been to Wanderlust and as freaky Friday as it sometimes is, it’s actually a fun time. But for some reason, the crowning of a Mrs. or Mr. Wanderlust 2012 based on “yogic elders” doesn’t sound appealing to us. And you don’t even get a special sash or a ride in a convertible. Total bullshit.
That said, we wish good luck to all you hopefuls (truly). It will certainly be an interesting experience, to say the least. Maybe you’ll even win a chance to guest star at Wanderlust World or “rock your yoga” on TV. We can say we knew you when!
Oh right, how to win? We don’t know. Be yourself…and eat organic food?
