Miss A Columnist

Kelly Fay is the Nashville Editor for Miss A. She is a firm believer that life wouldn’t be as enjoyable without a steaming fresh cup of coffee early in the morning, sipped from a beautifully detailed-painted mug. She values the small but beautiful things in life. She adores travel, even if it is to the local coffee shop; She lives for laughter with a friend, even if it is at my expense; and she loves a challenge, even if she doesn't come out a winner. She grew up and lived in beautiful sunny California where her love for the outdoors was sparked at an early age. Following her desire to be surrounded by beauty, she relocated to Humboldt County to attend Humboldt State University on a basketball scholarship. She received both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Humboldt State in Kinesiology with an emphasis in teaching/coaching. Led by her inner-gypsy, upon graduation she traveled and lived in many different places. She called the Alaskan darkness home during the winter of ‘08, experienced” tea time” and” the tube” while living in London, and resided in the sandy dunes of Newport Beach, California for nearly two years. She moved to Nashville to experience the simplicity of the South while still engaging in city life. She spends her weekdays teaching preschool and personal training while she spends her weekends being active, exploring new places and eating good foods. She is an adventurous and spontaneous girl who enjoys a good time but also wants to make a difference in this crazy world!

To make your experience the very best, the festival invites the finest yoga instructors on planet Earth; musical acts that will have you singing along with your soul; chefs that make you wonder how you ever ate a meal without their guidance; motivational speakers that will leave you inspired to take over the world; daily outdoor activities that will leave your body exhausted and your mind invigorated and jaw-dropping, eye popping performances.

No time to scurry your way to a mountain in a faraway land? No worries! Wanderlust offers “Yoga in the City” suitable for those seeking an all-out yogic experience in your own neighborhood. YITC is led by local yoga instructors followed by a musical performance sure to set fire to those excited to boogie down.

Wanderlust’s mission is to “create community and mindful living” and they do so by crafting a versatile experience suited to make any Earth lover beam from ear to beautiful ear. In addition to endorsing yoga, the arts and proper eating techniques, the festivals equally promote the idea of “being green.” Placing great value in sustainable practices, Wanderlust has included waste reduction, recycling, composting and the use of renewable energy and carbon offsetting into their efforts to make the world a cleaner place.

Yoga-filled- check. Yummy eats- check. Vino-sippin’- check. Soul-touching tunes- check. Promotion of “being green”- check. Daily outdoor activities- check. As if the check list wasn’t long enough they selflessly went ahead and added philanthropy to the mix. Wanderlust will donate a portion of ticket sales to Trees, Water and People, a non-profit organization whose mission is to “improve people’s lives by helping communities protect, conserve, and manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends.” The partnership serves to reduce the environmental impact of guest’s yoga practice around the globe.
