“The yoga, the hiking, the people; this was my best vacation ever.”Roger, from 2012 Sedona retreat
Theme: 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.
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.
