“The yoga, the hiking, the people; this was my best vacation ever.”
From Ego to Essence. This is a time on Earth of questioning ourselves and the nature of reality. We will explore this mysterious phenomena called the egoic mind: What is it? Why is it so powerful and alluring? How do we shift to our deeper intelligence: the intuition or essence or Divine alignment? And who are we–really–anyway!?
6 nights accommodations, daily bountiful healthy breakfasts, one home cooked dinner, 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 small single rooms available (extra $150). We will be staying right in the heart of Sedona, Arizona.
Teachers and Hike Guides
Roy Holman and Liz Gross will teach the yoga and lead the hikes and other activities. Roy has led over 60 retreats in Washington, Mexico, Guatemala, Hawaii, Bali, and Costa Rica. Liz joined Roy with her gifts in 2015. This will be our 11th retreat in Sedona, so we know the best hikes, vortexes, sites and restaurants! Roy is trained at the 500 hour level in Viniyoga, a breath-connected, body-friendly, heart centered, meditative flow yoga. This retreat is suitable for all yoga and hiking levels. Liz Gross is a yoga teacher and gifted vibrational energy healer and outstanding cook!
