Daily healthy, mostly organic breakfasts are included, usually a wide variety buffet 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 three home-cooked delicious dinners.  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 or lunch out 3 or 4 times, or you can save money and cook at the retreat center. As this is our 15th year in Sedona, we know the best places to eat, usually one night Thai, one night Fancy Mexican, one Italian, and one night excellent Health food.

COVID Policy

Yoga is about unity and oneness, not divisiveness and polarity. All are welcome on our retreats. We do not discriminate for any reason, including sex, gender, race, age, vaccinated or unvaccinated, masked or unmasked. We trust you to take care of yourself, and to decide first, if this trip is for you, and second, how to take care of yourself. We will do our part to keep everyone safe and honor all our needs, but ultimately, your health is your responsibility. May this retreat be a healing experience for all.

Payment and Refund Policy

It may be advisable to purchase Travel Cancelation insurance, as there is much uncertainty and change these days (you may have noticed!). We request a $500 deposit ($100 for Washington Retreats), balance due 30 days prior to trip–when possible.  Note:  Deposit is generally nonrefundable. 3/4 of later payment may be refunded if you cancel > 30 days prior to trip, 1/2 refund if you cancel 15 – 30 days prior to trip (depending on retreat center refund policy), no refund under 15 days prior to trip–unless I can get some money back from hotels and retreat center.  Note: In these wild, COVID times, we do our best to expand our refund policy, being fair to all involved.

“My heart overflows with love and gratitude for knowing you two beautiful human beings. I’m still whirling and savoring this retreat and all that transpired. The energy and love that each of you put into the weekend is dynamic. I’m in a better place physically, mentally and spiritually—body, mind and spirit. You are Amazing. Much Love and Blessings”

Carrie, 2022 Aldermarsh retreat

“Thank you, Roy and Liz, for all you did  to make this a wonderful heartfelt retreat. The care and concern you both showed for all of us was very evident. I am so glad I was able to participate in this beautiful Sedona retreat.”

Valerie, from 2021 Sedona retreat

Otherwise we will meet at the Phoenix airport the first morning and I will have a rented van waiting. Please make sure your flight arrives 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.
