YOGA. Once you get into it, you're into it, and The Standard Miami is about to host a four-day yoga festival called Wanderlust that's half convention and half retreat, but a complete escape.

We only really do yoga along with our Wii Fit, but the Wanderlust festival is appealing that part of our brain that wants to feel pretty and cool while wearing white and downward dogging next to an expanse of cool blue pool water. The Standard Miami's spa is known with its year-round yoga and wellness programs, so Wanderlust weekend—March 17-20th is a chance to step it up and block out the entire property, welcoming only those who like the sound of an all-inclusive mind and body getaway.

The deal is pretty great—$750 per person for three nights at the hotel, four days of yoga classes and activities, full access to all spa amenities (a Turkish hammam, aroma steam baths!), daily breakfast, and the Miami sun and humidity.

Instructors will be the crème de la crème from New York's yoga scene, as well as Miami's, and live music of all sorts will accompany the lessons. Rest assured that yoga beginners are just as welcome as long-time devotees as there will be classes for all levels, utilizing some of the most scenic spots around The Standard's island property.

Um, we just thought of another big bonus to this big yoga weekend: minimal luggage! Just pack a few days' of yoga clothes, a swimsuit or two and some poolside loungewear, wear your street clothes on the plane, and you're all good. This could possibly be the most low-maintanence vacation possible, especially if you're escaping a winter city to reach Miami (hint: leave your winter coat at home and take a taxi to the airport).

To see the complete line-up and buy a package to Wanderlust, head to the official site here. We don't know for sure, but it could be BYOM—Bring Your Own Mat—so dust it off just in case.
