Great American YogaDork Road Trip

YogaDork and J.T. Liss (Photography For Social Change) recently went on a two week long west coast adventure of yoga, nature, and the human experience. 15 cities, 5 states, and over 5,000 miles were traveled. J.T. took the photos, YD captured the journey in words. Upon our return to New York City we discussed the [...]


The YogaDork has landed! As promised, the Springer-esque Final Thoughts. The Long and Winding Road…Life in the Fast Lane…Life is a Highway…you get the picture. YD has been ramblin’, man! So YD went on a roadtrip, a crazy tour over the course of 13 days visiting Yoga Americana West Coast style. It was a fantastic [...]


Oh California, only you would provide the surreal setting for the above photo: yogis sprawled and lounging at a pool on the top of a mountain capped with snow in July. And this one: Some sort of antigravity contraption. Such was the scene at Wanderlust in Squaw Valley July 28-31st, 2011. We attended the overcast [...]


It’s Jenni Drishti! On day 11ish of the road trip (we lost count somewhere between John Friend’s flight of the Divine and the canyon grand crevasse) we arrived in Santa Barbara for a yoga class with Drishti’s own Jennifer Rawlings at Yoga Soup, the 2nd coolest named studio we encountered after Cosmic Dog. One of [...]


Following our 4 day space trip orbiting planet Wanderlust, the YD roadster took us southward toward the marvels of the natural world…modern plumbing in the desert! Oh and the Grand Canyon. (though it’s pretty amazing they can get running water to all the Del Taco’s and Mr. Pickles out here in the middle of cacti [...]


Ground control to major tom…do we have permission to land? Hello ellooo…elloo… from Wanderlust Festival in Lake Tahoe! We hope this missive is reaching planet Earth. We had every intention of recapping each day as we lived it at Wanderlust as we did in Vermont, but then the mothership came down and swept us up into [...]


We made it to Wanderlust! If you’ve been following our road trip around about the Pacific Northwest you know we’ve been roaming like gypsies on too much yerba mate through Portland, Seattle, San Fran, wine country and now Lake Tahoe where we’ve taken a brief pause for a little yoga and yogi music festivalness. Day [...]


UPDATE 2: Life is a Highway If you haven’t heard, we’re on a road trip! And not any road trip, the Great American YogaDork Road Trip, and we’re posting from the road! (in between driving long hours across the Pacific Northwest, stopping for gas and, uh, necessities, and squeezing in a few hours of sleep). The [...]


It’s the Great American YogaDork Road Trip. We made it to the West Coast! First stop: Portland, Oregon. Thoughts? Super! Portland welcomed us yanks with open arms and espresso (these northwesterners are serious about their espresso. more on that later) Our first yoga stop was the lovely Bhaktishop in Portland’s southeast quarter. We took class [...]
