Schuyler Grant, Matt Phippen, & Justine Malick
Schuyler Grant is Wanderlust’s Director of Yoga, Co-Director of Kula Yoga Project and National Director of Yoga for the Wanderlust Festival. "I used to think that yoga was something my parents did to embarrass me in front of my friends in junior high. But 20 years ago, recovering from a back injury, I began practicing asana and discovered something I had been seeking for years: the manifestation of meditation through motion. Over the years, I developed a signature style that integrates the breath based flow of Astanga and the precision of Iyengar into a deep, sweaty and transformative mind/body experience. Opening Kula Yoga Project in 2001 was my attempt to bring a little California vibe to the mean streets of NYC. I am also lucky enough to be the co-creator of this crazy, magical festival – and so grateful to all of you who have made it the most spectacular event imaginable. With this festival, my two studios, and my three daughters, I am in deep need of my yoga practice; it healed my back two decades ago and now keeps my soul intact on a daily basis."
About Matt Phippen: With a variety of formal training, in many disciplines, Matt’s teaching pulls from numerous styles in the Yoga system, and also from the current science in movement. His main influences from Yoga are Schuyler Grant, Carrie Owerko, and Abbie Galvin. He is certified as a Functional Range Conditioning movement specialist (FRC ms), as a Kinstretch teacher, and as a Functional Range Release Practictioner (FR). Blending the old with the new, and combining tradition with the current literature, Matt offers an intelligent and relevant style for students wanting to improve the way they move, and for teachers seeking insight and refinement in the way they teach.
About Justine Malick: Justine is inspired by movement and the body, and her tremendous respect for the body is reflected in her teaching. Justine's first explorations of movement began at a young age - she started walking at 8 months & hasn't really stopped since. She also spent over 10 years as a competitive figure skater. Justine is a 500hr RYT and has completed yoga trainings with YogaWorks and Embodied Flow; she also completed a comprehensive Pilates training through Body Arts Science International (BASI). Justine views movement as medicine and is forever fascinated by the healing and transformative power of working with the body-mind through the blend of these various modalities. In addition to studying Yoga & Pilates, Justine has completed trainings in Deep Bodywork Massage and Resistance Flexibility Strength Training (RFST).
