Another super-inspiring yoga teacher I met at Wanderlust Whistler was Canadian Eoin Finn, a surfer yogi who teaches “hammock enlightenment” and Blissology: “My life mission is to get in touch with the forces of Love, Joy, Happiness, as well as sorrows and grief, in order to open up to the Heart’s Message. I want to radiate this out as positive energy. That is the inspiration for the Blissology Project.” Here’s a great interview with Eoin from the Yoga Peeps if you want to learn more about his heart-opening, life-affirming, not-too-serious approach to being human: http://yogapeeps.com/main/2010/episode-81-eoin-finn-blissologist/582

Seane Corn was one of the most inspiring and insightful yoga teachers I got to spend time with at Wanderlust Whistler, both in asana practice as well as some talks she gave. Seane seems to have the ability to open up and channel an amazing amount of practical wisdom, and she is impossibly eloquent, like the teachings are just flowing through her. One element of her message that I really appreciate is her angle on social justice, a passion that led her to form a nonprofit called “Off the Mat, Into the World, which uses “the power of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism and to ignitegrass roots social change”: http://www.offthematintotheworld.org

 This is a great NPR interview with Seane on her background, upbringing, personal transformation and current beliefs and practices. Her spirit really shines through in this conversation. Namaste!
