Wanderlust Beginnings

This weekend Wanderlust is going online. Here’s how they’ve shaped the Feelix Yoga Strap journey...

Back in 2019 before the world went quiet, I brought along a couple of handcrafted yoga straps to the Wanderlust festival in Melbourne. It was a grim day with cold winds and threatening rain hanging over the morning.

Only the keenest of yogis attended, I layered up, grabbed a chai and added string lights fully expecting my little stall to be to be in dark with storms by lunch.

In the days leading up to the festival I took a couple of days off work and was madly learning how to use Illustrator and program the ‘carvey’ cnc machine at the local maker space where I had some small bits of 7mm plywood and an idea.

A vinyasa flow can give your body strength but it was the meditation I was calling on to not completely freak out when I didn’t put the drill bit in correctly and found the cutter had wandered off course… and started tearing up the safety board!!
