Draw on Sedona's powerful spiritual vortex energy and get in touch with nature and your higher self at our rejuvenating yoga, meditation and hiking retreat in stunning Sedona, surrounded by world-famous healing red rocks and powerful energy vortexes. We'll be staying at the comfortable and charming boutique Sunset Chateau in Sedona, Arizona, nestled on a gorgeous hillside with panoramic views of Sedona's red rocks, and plenty of places to unwind and enjoy the views, from your patio, in the lush gardens, relaxing in a hammock or by the salt-water pool and jacuzzi.
Known for the uplifting power of its vortex meditation sites, Sedona is the perfect place to retreat, journey inwards, and connect more deeply with your self, with nature and with the universe. Vortexes are areas of swirling energy that arise from the earth's natural electromagnetic power, where the earth appears especially alive with energy. This can be powerful for meditation, contemplation and healing.
The morning yoga classes will be mostly vinyasa flow yoga for all levels, linking movement with the breath for an energizing yet relaxing flow. With creative and balanced sequences, strengthening and lengthening, detoxing and pranayama, you will experience a strong, safe and supportive practice. Modifications and options will be provided for different abilities. You'll have the opportunity to play with some backbends, arm balances, and inversions if you choose, and cool down with some deep stretches to restore the body and mind. The evening classes will be yin yoga, with longer held seated and supine postures, stretching, lengthening, releasing tension and creating more space in deeper layers of connective tissues in the body. Yin yoga is also a perfect opportunity to journey inwards and practice meditation.
