Join us for our 12th year in Sedona, a profound experience in the heart of Sedona and the energy healing vortexes. Healing yoga, beautiful hikes, vortex visits, local sacred sites, deluxe accommodations, healthy breakfasts, coffee, tea, van shuttle from Phoenix (if you arrive in the morning before 11:00am), shuttle back to Phoenix (if you fly out no earlier than 2pm) and rides to all hikes and sites. Roy Holman and Liz Gross. We stay at the fabulous Moondance Retreat Center and have the whole place to ourselves, with hot tub, swimming pool. We have a special permit to access the best hikes and vortex spots.
Less is more. Any of you so busy that you do not rest enough, play enough, or experience enough joy in your life? Welcome to the human reality! This pattern of working too hard and struggling and striving is not innate or fixed in stone, so come experience five or six days of playing, laughing, hiking, stretching, breathing deeply, soaking up sun, swimming, eating mindfully and remembering who you are and what is important.
Sedona Yoga Hiking retreat includes daily awesome, healthy breakfasts, two other meals during the week, daily yoga, healing workshops, daily guided hikes, special sacred vortex sites, shuttles to and from airport (if you can meet us at airport by 11am Sunday), and to trail heads, and local shopping. No worries if you do not have a room-mate, we will find you someone compatible. We also may have a couple single rooms available. We will be staying right in the heart of Sedona, Arizona.
Deluxe Accommodations in Sedona
Our host hotel MoonDance is awesome. Trip Adviser raves about it. Great spacious rooms, swimming pool, great views, wonderful setting, amazing breakfasts, and cozy yoga space. We have the whole place to ourselves with no other guests or groups.
Daily healthy, mostly organic breakfasts are included, usually a wide variety buffett of oatmeal, eggs, granola, cereal, nuts, seeds, nut butters, breads,various milks (diary and non-dairy), fresh fruit, flax, hemp, and much more. We will make sure all diets are met. We also include one home-cooked delicious dinner, and we will take you out for one gourmet lunch at Mariposa.
For other meals, we shop at a local natural foods store for our lunch or dinner fixings, which we keep at the hotel to take on hikes. Then we usually dine out 2-3 times, or you can save money and cook at the retreat center. As this is our 11th year in Sedona, we know the best places to eat, usually one night Thai, one night Fancy Mexican, one night excellent Health food, etc.
What We will Do during yoga retreat
At least one daily yoga class (sunrise or sunset), some vortex visits and meditations, healing workshops, daily hikes, and other activities. We expect to have about 12-14 people attend. All classes, hikes, and activities are optional. March is a cooler season, while October will be a bit warmer. Note: Please contact me before you book your flights, for details. Some folks choose to arrive early or leave late, which is fine. Otherwise we will meet at the Phoenix airport the first morning and I will have a rented van waiting. Please arrive by 11am if you plan to ride with us to Sedona from Phoenix, and plan to fly home no earlier than 2 pm, again, only if you want to ride with us back from Sedona to Phoenix. I cannot cover costs of separate transport, only with van. Separate shuttle is about $60 each way.
Teachers and Hike Guides: Roy Holman and Liz Gross
Roy Holman: I am a 500 hour Certified Yoga teacher, in the Viniyoga tradition. I teach a safe, gentle, body-friendly, grounded, breath-connected, meditative, flowing traditional hatha yoga – a meditation in motion really. I like to move slow, give time to breathe deeply and savor the poses. I also teach breath-work (pranayama) and meditation, and also try to incorporate the many aspects of emotional healing and balancing I have learned. The meditation is a mindfulness style, with focus on breath awareness, heart opening, body senses, emotional clearing, and connection on all levels (body, breath, emotions, Earth, Spirit).
Liz Gross: “I believe all healing involves alignment of the soul with the body.” Liz is a gifted sound and vibration healer, and teaches with Roy on retreats. Liz teaches yoga, meditation, Oneness and often does some of the cooking on our retreats. “When you’re consciously in touch with the life energy within yourself, you have awareness & communication with the flow of energy that connects you to spirit. I feel very passionate about Vibrational Medicine and love working with others in this way & helping others to connect with their purpose and passion in life. Vibrational Energy Medicine brings the physical, emotional, mental, & spiritual bodies back into balance, which opens the way for rebuilding the healing systems of the body.”
