20-hour Trauma-Conscious Yoga Training for teachers and service providers with Judy Weaver
Limited Capacity seats available

This separately ticked immersion takes place Thursday, March 12th 8am-5pm, and 8am-12pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. To register click here: https://sedonayogafestival.com/yoga-for-ptsd-training/


Trauma-Conscious Yoga is based on the understanding that trauma is held in the cells of the body and mind – it is physiological rather than psychological and that reconnecting the body and mind with the synchronization of conscious breath, movement and concentration in a safe, secure and predictable environment supports healing and wellness. Another contributing factor is the feeling of isolation that occurs for trauma survivors which is recognized as a primary contributing factor to suicide. The evidence-based protocol manages and eases trauma’s negative consequences occurring in the body mind by reducing potential triggers of stress and providing choices which is the opposite of trauma. A large part of the physical benefits is the release of calming and positive thought producing chemicals which occur when in social gatherings with like-minded individuals. Practitioners learn techniques to reconnect and develop awareness of the bodymind needs in that moment.
This course is designed to develop an understanding of the effects of a broad spectrum of trauma survivors, the biological impacts of trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress (Disorder)/PTS(D) and the healing dynamics of Trauma-Conscious Yoga (TCY), Post Traumatic Growth (PTG) and “Inner Technology for PTSD”. Participants will learn how to use the information that they have gained in this course to teach a TCY class to a variety of trauma demographics, as well as, practical tools and techniques to manage stress, anxiety and the side effects of PTS(D). The training will be interactive which gives participants practical experience, plus the opportunity to expound upon what they learned in the course.

Love in Action - Evolution of your Heart
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The minute you were created by the heavens, you became love. Love is infinite and so is the energy from the heart. The heart was formed first when you decided to incarnate. When doctors look for a baby nestled in the womb, the first thing they search for is a heartbeat.     So why do we hide it?  Protect it?  Shut it down?  Close it off?    It’s the epicenter of everything. It holds everything. And if love is infinite, then we can give it away all the time.  We needn’t expect anything for it.  We needn’t demand reciprocity.  We just love.  Period.      We ARE Divine Love but sometimes in life, or via relationships, we forget that. But the reality is, the heart is a beacon of truth and resonates with Universal love and truth, if you allow it.    Throughout life, your heart has been nurtured, filled up, stepped on, mended, broken, ignited, full and then empty again and again. It’s this amazing vessel of infinite capacity.  And when it breaks, it just means that it is making space for more love.  Use that love in action in this life – use the healing of your heart, to create healing on this planet. Start with the heart.  At the foundation of it all, you are love.

Hope, Grace and Gaia: Transformative Anatomy, Physiology and Therapeutics: A New Paradigm in Healing Body-Mind-Spirit and Planet
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

A profound sense of Hope, and Grace infuses and illuminates us when we befriend Gravity and align with the Gaia  “love lines” between heaven and earth. We experience ourselves as FULLY HUMAN AND FULLY DIVINE and our lives, relationships and health reflect this.

Sometimes however, our body and health express misalignment and unresolved stresses  or traumas, which disconnect us from our depths. We acquire postural/fascial shapes and tonal vibrations that contribute to pain, stress, fatigue and sleep loss, along with a host of therapeutic issues we all work with yoga wise.    
The good news is that reshaping these postural and tonal distortions through yoga, not only offers  a new paradigm in pain relief, improved health and trauma recovery, but also an opportunity to embody the Grace and Hope of true liberation and awakening.    

This  illuminating and uplifting offering for teachers and students will:  
1) increase awareness of energetic embodied disconnects from the past that burden our posture, health and well-being in the present.  
2) unfold a new paradigm in “how life has shaped us” that contributes to chronic joint pain, poor health, sleep loss, trauma and PTSD.
3) reveal, heal and clarify energetic stressors in the "auric field” that challenge our abitlity to awaken. 
4) teach greater precision in asana for more effective healing and transformation.
Expect to experience true Hope, uplifting Grace and a profound, supportive intimacy with Mother Earth-Gaia.

This work is informed not only by my personal healing experience, but also Anusara Therapeutics, Thomas Myers Anatomy Trains, Liz Koch’s Sacred Psoas work and Dr Steven Levine’s trauma recovery work amongst others.

Unraveling the Loop
Limited Capacity seats available

Your energy body, your emotions, or more specifically, your chakras, are directing your life. Not a “five-year plan” like we may have been taught, but your chakra system: that which you cannot even see and are not educated on until you are much older, when the patterns are deeply set.    Most are unaware of where they are recreating patterns in their life that are unsupportive of their true path.  They spend years, maybe their entire life, recreating the same “looped” story over and over again, with no idea why.   They are in suffering.   Learn about 7 of the many chakras in your physical body, your subtle body, and how the outside elements affect the direction of your life. You work through karma to live out your dharma. Wouldn’t it be nice to discipline your power, gifts, and connection to live this life fully embodied?      Yoga is an energy medicine… it’s movement of the body in alignment with breath… dissolving dis-ease of the body and neurosis of the mind. The goal is to enable energetic shifts to create true healing. Seeing beyond the physical form and into the energy field.

Hero’s Journey with Hindu / Buddhist Deity Archetypes (Ishtadevatas)
Limited Capacity seats available

In this unique presentation, Manoj (people call him a spiritual stand up comedian who often falls flat on his big Ganesha belly) will incorporate all the Hindu and Buddhist deity archetypes in the circle of Shiva Nataraj. Uncover the secret symbolisms of these archetypes and relate it to all aspects of your life such as relationships, abundance, life purpose and anxiety attenuation.

We are going to symbolically kayak through Carl Jung’s collective unconscious for these Archetypes. Discover how entertaining story telling fully expresses your hero’s journey (of Joseph Campbell) into Self Actualization (Moksha). We will also do meditation practices with these Ishtadevatas so that they express through us at all stages of our hero’s journey.

Energize Your acupuncture meridian lines and organs with Love, Joy, Peace, and Compassion
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Healing starts with expressing love, joy, peace, and compassion to yourself. You practice an integrative approach to self-healing. It combines your body anatomical system and an understanding of the natural energetic pathways to circulate love, joy, peace, and compassion through your body, nourishing your organs, emotions, and thoughts. You journey through your torso and head, arms and hands, legs and feet proactively hugging, and loving your body. You allow physical, emotional, and mental discomfort arise as you visit your body to heal them. This is like walking throughout your house and turning on the light in different rooms that are dark. You use the acupuncture meridian lines that over 2,000 years ago ancient cultures knew of the existence of them. Chinese acupuncture still uses them today for healing. You practice and integrate Chinese inner alchemy (Taoism) with your body anatomical system.

Limited Capacity seats available

Are you ready to attract your hearts desires? Get clear about the direction of your life? Gain personal freedom? In this class you will identify your desires AND see if you actually feel deserving in the present moment. Identifying desires can be fun and easy, but raising our deservability through Self-Love can feel daunting and is usually the first area of our life we cut off when we get busy, stressed, or overwhelmed. Learn to make self-exploration, self-expression, and self-expansion a daily priority and ritual. Manifestation only occurs where desire and deservability meet. In other words, knowing what you want isn’t enough, you have to feel that you are worth receiving it as well. Bring a journal and pen, mat and an open heart.

Kavita’s transformational movement and vocal opening workshop!  We have inside of us the most magical instrument of all… our VOICE!  As part of the fabric of this life each one of us has a particular part to sing and play.  If we leave our voice out of the beautiful tapestry of sounds around us, there is something missing from the whole!      In this culture many have grown accustomed to allowing the incredibly life-giving practice of singing to be left to those who are pop stars or who supposedly the ones that have a ‘good voice.’  It is so common to hear the stories about parents,  or teachers saying something to break a young person’s spirit or keep them from continuing to sing as they grow or in some other way disregarding the fact that music and singing is for EVERYONE!!    It is time for us all to re-write these stories.  The real and authentic expression of each one of us through the voice is VITAL and interesting for all.  Through group exercises, movement, songs and lots of connecting and support, join Kavita as she guides us to unpack our stories and allow for the softening of our self critic and the opening of our own path to voice.

Discovering Your Realms of Being
Limited Capacity seats available

Humans are multidimensional beings living one-dimensional lives. This is meant in a very practical, not mystical or philosophical way. Our failure to distinguish the multidimensional nature of human existence robs us of physical vitality and mental clarity, impacting our effectiveness in life, relationships and work.    In this session, we will engage in activities that allow us to distinguish our distinct “realms of being.” The session will rely on conversation, reflection and group activities to uncover our multidimensional nature and recognize its impact in our day to day lives.     By distinguishing our distinct “selves” we open new opportunities for being and action in the world. We also open new possibilities in our relationships with others and our effectiveness in our work and purpose.

Beauty Myth on the Mat: Love Who You Are, and Not How you Look
Limited Capacity seats available

Worry about how you look in class?  Catch yourself comparing?

A recent survey found 97% of women hate some part of their bodies.  Half of men polled felt the same way.  Such an internal battle cannot help but affect how we practice on the mat.  If we are hating some part of what we are working with, how can we hope to love what we are doing?  


End the shame and blame about how you look!   Forever banish the “she looks better” and “I wish I looked like that”, and instead, learn how to come to your mat to celebrate your body instead of going to your mat to fix it.

During this event, Janet will share stories and insights from her book, “Love Your Body”, in which she shares her own evolution from childhood assault survivor to anorexic, to compulsive eater to happy yogi.  The workshop will end with practical methods for feeling empowered, peaceful and delighted with the body you have.

Be prepared to move - and move with freedom, ease and JOY.

Leave refreshed, clearer, and more in love with YOU!

In this Sasang. Acharya Shunya focuses upon sacred practices built around the famous Vedic Mantra, known as the Gayatri Mantra. Ayurveda source text from 1st century BCE, the Charaka Samhita also recognizes this mantra as a powerful health and well being promoting aid.

The Gayatri Mantra, when chanted properly (that shall be taught) and and its meaning contemplated upon in silence (that shall be transmitted), has the power to awaken hidden yogic shaktis, powerful energies, activate your seven chakras and help you access a universal consciousness.  Gayatri Mantra's 9 words and 24 sound vibrations harmonise the five pranas,  purifies the mind, destroys ignorance and bestows health, beauty, strength and vitality. Through its recitation, you will be  able to awaken and realize the Atma-Jyoti or inner light. If you are serious about Sadhana to accelerate your yogic journey,  then you  must not miss this class, taught by a master Vedic teacher, showing the way, step by step!

Join internationally acclaimed Vedic lineage holder, spiritual teacher, scholar and author, Acharya Shunya, as she imparts this special mantra that she grew up with in her Vedic lineage from Ayodhya,  India.

In Paulie's art of Yin yoga the flowing transitions from pose to pose is just as important as the postures themselves. This is a complete practice which includes postures for both upper and lower body, creative movement, and the self expression of our unique individuality. Let your spirit become one with the rhythm and flow of nature that lives within you and all around you.

Paulie’s approach to yoga is about following our own personal path. Each of us have our own Tao- a unique way of being imbedded and evolving in the world. Paulie gently guides us in opening to our intuitive hearts and discovering the artist that is inherent within, encouraging us to transcend the boundaries of presumed limitations and to realize our untapped potential. It's about remembering our wholeness and aligning our heart, our mind, and the energetic field of our entire body with the greater body of mother earth and the spirit of creation from which all springs forth.

She will go over many techniques and drills to make you more comfortable moving upside down, and maybe even get you to "fly" for a moment.     This class will begin with some discussion before it moves into a small flow to warm up and prepare the body to invert. Techniques and drills will then be discussed, demonstrated, and put into practice before moving into the full handstand.     There will be ample time for questions, demonstrations, and of course, practice time. Some partner work will be done, and spotting will be a part of the learning process of this class.

So relax, breath and sing of beautiful things!
And join us for a sweet gathering of singing divine names and prayers. Kirtan is a call and response style of singing based in the Bhakti yoga science. Stilling the mind, softening the heart, evoking joy, and dissolving separateness are just some of the magical benefits of this ancient practice. And it's just a sweet time in community. No experience necessary.

Conscious Breathing for Healing & Awakening
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Release the Physical, Mental, Emotional & Spiritual Blockages from Your Life    Throughout history, cultures worldwide have provided a means for people to access non-ordinary realms for healing and spiritual growth. Breathwork is a means of inducing an altered state of consciousness through full and connected breathing. An energy charge is created in the body, and as the energy disperses, it serves to release, or to cleanse blockages, both physical and emotional. Possible experiences include; resolution and release of current problems, unresolved childhood wounds, birth memories, past life remembrances and stored trauma in the body.  Many also experience encounters with the divine, transcendence of time or space, direct experiences of the primordial vibration, deep peace, unconditional love and orgasmic states.    The process is gentle, safe, and loving and almost every person will have a deep moving experience. As an added benefit, Breathwork is quite healthy for the body. You will be conscious the whole time and totally in control. Please come prepared for immediate growth and a powerful experience.        

Benefits can include
• Deepen a spiritual connection
• Dissolve stress and anxiety issues
• Release old baggage and disempowering beliefs
• Increased levels of awareness and intuition
• Heal emotional contributors to physical dis-ease
• Unblock the creative process
• Provide a safe and natural way to experience expanded states of consciousness
• And much more........

20-hour Trauma-Conscious Yoga Training for teachers and service providers with Judy Weaver
Limited Capacity seats available

This separately ticked immersion takes place Thursday, March 12th 8am-5pm, and 8am-12pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. To register click here: https://sedonayogafestival.com/yoga-for-ptsd-training/


Trauma-Conscious Yoga is based on the understanding that trauma is held in the cells of the body and mind – it is physiological rather than psychological and that reconnecting the body and mind with the synchronization of conscious breath, movement and concentration in a safe, secure and predictable environment supports healing and wellness. Another contributing factor is the feeling of isolation that occurs for trauma survivors which is recognized as a primary contributing factor to suicide. The evidence-based protocol manages and eases trauma’s negative consequences occurring in the body mind by reducing potential triggers of stress and providing choices which is the opposite of trauma. A large part of the physical benefits is the release of calming and positive thought producing chemicals which occur when in social gatherings with like-minded individuals. Practitioners learn techniques to reconnect and develop awareness of the bodymind needs in that moment.
This course is designed to develop an understanding of the effects of a broad spectrum of trauma survivors, the biological impacts of trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress (Disorder)/PTS(D) and the healing dynamics of Trauma-Conscious Yoga (TCY), Post Traumatic Growth (PTG) and “Inner Technology for PTSD”. Participants will learn how to use the information that they have gained in this course to teach a TCY class to a variety of trauma demographics, as well as, practical tools and techniques to manage stress, anxiety and the side effects of PTS(D). The training will be interactive which gives participants practical experience, plus the opportunity to expound upon what they learned in the course.

The Art of Meditative Self Discovery

Who are you, really?  Are you your mind’s programmed stories of you?  Worthy, unworthy, lovable, unlovable, important, unimportant?    Or might the truth of you be something so much more vast, eternal, stable, whole and totally capable of feeling fully and loving fiercely?    At some point in our lives we may begin to realize that who we think we are, the one who is guiding all of our decisions and triggering all or reactions, is really a self that we have created in our own minds.  This “Constructed Self” is of course not who we really are.    So what is the true, eternal, vast and powerful truth of you?  How do you awaken that Self so that it can fully live and celebrate this precious life?  And in your awakening, what happens to the constructed self that has been the cause of so much struggle and confusion?    In this 90 minute meditation and satsang session, we will experientially explore and discover fresh perspectives and deep knowings that support the awakening of the beautiful truth of who you really are.

At the core of this workshop it’s about what humans really need: connection.     The first goal is to feel comfortable with touch and begin to flow with the movements presented to you.  You will be exposed to a variety of yoga and martial arts preparatory exercises which require partners and teamwork!    The second aspect of this training will incorporate yogic philosophy into every component.  There will be a lot of fun and, physically, you will find things out about yourself you’ve perhaps never encountered but the undeniable influence is in what yoga teaches us about connection and rejection.     The third goal of the workshop is that you will walk away with a deeper understating of fasting; what it is and why you would want to do it.      This may seem counterintuitive as a trauma yoga workshop but I believe touch to be healing and necessary for many of us who have been traumatized to learn how to reconnect with ourselves and the world around us.     When is the time to connect and when is the time to withdraw?

Utilizing Yogic Practice to unlock your Divine DNA
Limited Capacity filling up

Yoga and DNA Activation: Paying forward the ancient practices with a new awareness!

Many of our ancient practices create fertile soil for a Divine expression of the Human genome. Some of the ancient texts point directly to DNA expression and multidimensional genetics, thousands of years before scientists witnessed and decoded the DNA structure. We now see DNA as a key tool for the spirit-body interface. So how can we use our yogic practices to improve DNA expression?  Activation of 12 strand DNA (and beyond) is a hot topic in the awakened community. We now merge the ancient with the modern, combining sacred texts, channeled information, and modern science to promote the pure expression of our Higher Self.   This workshop will share the foundations of DNA activation,  methods for expressing your own Divine DNA, and possibilites for integrating DNA activation with yoga in the studio! We will finish with a guided activation experience.

Art as a Spiritual Path
Limited Capacity seats available

A mandala is a very ancient guide that symbolically allows you to look into yourself.  The process of coloring in a mandala can give you profound insights into your psyche and your mind.  It appears simple, yet there are layers of growth, understanding and even a transforming of consciousness that are revealed in a mandala painting, whether coloring one in or simply looking at one.  The key to mandala meditation is to sit still and gaze at one.  Once you have colored in several mandalas – or even several parts of one mandala – you will begin to feel and see patterns within yourself.  This is deeply valuable because it allows you to recognize your own inner patterns and it helps you to communicate with your conscious self through the core patterns.    When coloring mandalas, you can no longer think about blues, purples or greens in the same way.  Thoughts become colors.  Colors become patterns.  Patterns awaken the soul.  Coloring becomes magic.  From deep within, you will feel stillness and relaxation, because the colors shine through you.  Your mind shifts from the logical and reasoning left brain to the intuitive and emotional right brain.

Participants will learn the "Wim Hof Breathing" method to start the practice with intensive pranayama.  Wim Hof breathing creates an "altered state" by tapping into the natural production of DMT that we can create in our own brains.  This helps to create a deeply tuned in experience and an increased ability to visualize when we head in to our meditation. After several rounds of breath, students will recline for an hour long Yoga Nidra "Journey to the Moon" where they will systematically be led through the koshas to land deeply into the sub and unconscious layers of the mind where  healing can take place.  Singing Bowls will be played throughout this practice to amplify this healing through vibration and sound.

Aligning your energy with the Moon brings you closer to your Shakti, your prana, your life force.  If the Moon makes waves, then it is an undeniable truth that you too are affected by Her rhythms.  Every Lunar cycle offers you an opportunity to realign, recalibrate, reintegrate your own being into that which pulses with the Moon.      Use the moon, the stars and the orbits of the planets as a guide to develop tools for deeper connection to the Universal flow in your practice. Balancing your body with the alignment of planetary cosmos, offers a more balanced and fulfilling journey.    Learn about the Full Moon, the New Moon, Equinox and Solstice, and other natural cycles of life that affect your practice and ways to work with that energy! Once you understand the energy of the planets and how it aligns with your birth chart, we can employ that energy, creating the life you truly love.     Ha-tha yoga = sun and moon. How could it be anything different. Gather monthly rituals to integrate into your practice, connecting you deeper to Source and Mother Earth. Learn meditations, chants, pranayama and sequencing for each Moon cycle.

Maha Mahal “Great Love” ~ Coming Home to Yourself
Limited Capacity seats available

Natalie will share her two loves: Her indigenous roots and her love of yoga.   By sharing this attunement, she will guide you to connect with your deeper roots and your sense of “Great Love”.      Maha Mahal is a Tagalog-Sanskrit mantra.  “Maha”, in Sanskrit, means “great”, “noble”.  “Mahal”, in Tagalog, a language native to the Philippines and that has an extraordinary amount of Sanskrit derivatives, means “love”, “precious”, “dear”, “expensive”. This mantra allows for reflection on the transcendence of sacred language and the “Great Love” that flows from the language of the heart.     “There is wisdom in our heritage and ancestry that comes from a relationship with the land.  [There is a wisdom in realizing our own indigenous roots. There is a wisdom in learning about these roots] and connecting them with the way we walk on the earth today,” says fellow Filipino-yogini and sacred artist Christine Jugueta.    Everyone has a deep and personal message of wisdom from their ancestors.  It is a message of “Great Love”.  You will be guided to feel this “Great Love” coming from the spirit of your own people and from your own authentic heart.    This is an invitation, not only to come home to yourself, but to step closer to the source of  “Great Love”.  In this practice, you will have the opportunity to shift your relationship with yourself, your body, your choices and your circle.  You will have the space to remember where you truly come from.  Through this sadhana, you will experience your breath as a force that has been passed through generations and you will feel your footprints on the path of your own people.  Come and celebrate this connection, this Great Love!  Maha Mahal!

Rewrite Your Relationship to Stress

Stress is prevalent in our society and culture and we believe culturally that our worth is determined by how much we do.

It has the power to take you to the innermost, deepest levels of relaxation where your whole body and being is permeated by peace of mind and profound stillness. This ancient meditation technique enables you to not only enter subtle realms of consciousness, but also reshape your life and your health.

Lu Jong Tibetan Healing Yoga
Limited Capacity seats available

  Lu Jong is an ancient movement practice developed for the purpose of self-healing.    LU means 'body' and JONG means 'training'.    Many are unaware of this Tibetan yoga tradition.   Buddhist practices are often erroneously visualized as static and on a cushion, a stereotype that couldn't be farther from the truth.    In actuality, monks meditating far from society in the mountains of Tibet realized the necessity of developing methods to keep their bodies in top condition, their immune systems strong, and their healing abilities well-tuned.    Physically, the practice works the spine to build strength. Energetically, the movements open blocked channels and chakras to encourage the proper flow of energy in our bodies.    What does this mean for you? In addition to fostering physical healing by increasing fitness, energy and balance, Lu Jong is a spiritual practice that opens the heart, cultivates inner calm, and hones mental focus.     It is a form of Meditation in Motion.    Lu Jong is deeply rooted in Tibetan Buddhism (Tantrayana), shamanic Bon practices, and Tibetan Medicine – an entirely unique combination of incredibly powerful healing techniques.

According to the on-going neuroscience research, the TNTs enable you to become happier, more intelligent, promote higher self-control, and getting “in the Zone”. Healing PAQ is using the most advanced neuroscience technology such as EEG (Electro Encephalogram), and fMRI (Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging) to research the influence of TNTs on the human brain. The self-healing guided meditation audio has increased the average brain waves more than 3 times among 60 EEG participants. The silent distance healing video has increased the average brain waves more than 4 times among 60 EEG participants. The fMRI demonstrates an extensive amount of blood flow to the visual cortex and the pre-frontal cortex that is the executive commander of the brain. In this session we practice these techniques as we also discuss the scientific evidence.
Guided Meditation audio (20 minutes) increased average EEG among 60 participants up to three times from 19HZ (Beta wave) to 58HZ (Gamma wave).  Gamma wave is an indication of higher self-control, higher intelligence, Go-getter attitude, and being in the zone or a state of “flow.”

The Power of Practice in our Rapidly Changing World
Limited Capacity seats available

Cycles of human existence characterize the qualities of the times. Today, we are living in the Kali
Yuga, a time period in human history driven by technology and rapid change; when finding
nourishment poses a greater challenge than encountering pollutants; when fear, masked by anger,
seems more prevalent than mutual understanding and love; when our external—and
internal—environments exude chaos and confusion moreso than equanimity and focus.
This is, however, the best time for yoga sadhana, for it is in today’s climate when the greatest fruits
are achieved in the shortest amount of time for a yogi, relative to other eras—provided we
understand how this is accomplished.
In this workshop, we’ll learn and sequence potent, time-tested tantric practice consisting of bandha,
mudra, pranayama and mantra recitation encouraged today for accelerating our personal, spiritual
growth and unfoldment, establishing inner equanimity, and rebalancing the forces of nature. From
the Yoga Sutra, Bhagavad Gita, and tantric sources, these are practices that:
 enhance our capacity to digest and assimilate
 cultivate a clear, calm, and tranquil mind
 stabilize our inner rhythm and harmony
 deepen and strengthen our connection to the Divine within
 give us the opportunity to affect the world around us in a manner that is illuminating,
positively strategic, essential, and evolutionary

Workshop level: The practices taught in this workshop presume a level of proficiency in asana and
pranayama. The workshop is open to all, as links to preparatory practice resources will be provided.

Yoga Yoga, Climate & Earth Activism
Climate change is the essential issue of our times. There are many causes and effects of climate change, but at the root of them all is our relationship to mother earth and to all of nature. The yoga tradition along with other indigenous wisdom traditions has long held a deep reverence and understanding of a living and conscious Mother Earth (Bhumi Devi). That we are all entwined with Her; physically, energetically, mentally & spiritually; we are all her children. Now more than ever we must awaken and act for ourselves, future generations and all of life.  Both as individuals and as a community, we must become more aware of our actions and choices and how they affect the web of life .And what we can all do to become earth activists, raise awareness and join the global revolution for conscious change and planetary awakening for everyone.

High Vibration QiGong
Limited Capacity filling up

Do you know what your Qi feels like?  Have you heard people talk about about "raising your vibration", or somebody having a "good vibe"?  If you can't identify your Qi, Ki, Mana or Prana, allow me to introduce you to this practice.  


High Vibration Qi Gong focuses on raising your Qi.  High Vibration Qi Gong will help you learn how to shake and tap and raise your vibration to a higher frequency whenever you wish. No mat is needed. The practice can be done standing or sitting. All experience levels are welcome.  

Did you know that all animals shake or vibrate off trauma after a near-death experience? This class will give you a similar benefit as well as rejuvinating benefit.  Recharging your Qi/Vitality/Prama/life force will help you improve and maintain your health.  

Some 70% of the human body is water.  If your fluids are not moving properly, your body becomes stagnant.  A healthy river flows, and circulation of the lymphatic, cardio, bone marrows, spinal fluid and all fluids/energies in the body are encouraged by this practice.
High Vibration Qigong will help you
  • Release stress by shaking it off, more gentle than vibration plate machine.
  • Activate your core energies
  • Cultivate your own Qi (increase your energy)
  • Become sensitive to your Qi
  • Strengthen digestive functions; ease constipation
  • Remove blockage and open meridans channels
  • Improve your sleep
  • Strengthen your bones, joints and tendons
  • Improve your balance and reduce the risk of falls

GRAVITY & GRACE: The Power of Surrender and Intuitive Response
Limited Capacity filling up

Our mind is a powerful instrument, where we can realize everything is temporary and nothing is impossible. When this is truly felt, we recognize it’s not about force, it’s about flow; it’s not about effort, it’s about non-effort; and it’s not about overcoming gravity, it’s about opening to grace.     With Gravity as a catalyst for movement physically, and Grace as its spiritual equivalent, this dynamic 3-part practice will support a gentle “rewiring” of your neural circuitry responsible for effortless motion, healing, and infinite possibilities. The result helps build refined levels of attention, focus, and sensitivity, and through consistent practice, builds flexibility, strength, and stillness naturally.

Yin Yoga: Fun, Flow and Flexibility
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

In this spontaneous and playful practice we step aside from traditional asana and into the realm of postures like the crab, seahorse, and T-Rex which allow the body to gain flexibility and strength while freeing the mind of mechanistic and self-limiting thoughts.

Remember how being imaginative just came naturally when you were a child? Remember how exhilarating it was to feel being fully alive in your body, to freely rejoice in all your senses, to laugh and shout, to jump and dance, and to play pretend without any rules? Paulie's liberating approach to yoga shows us how to reawaken our childlike playful spirit. Paulie makes learning fun; and when learning is fun it becomes almost effortless.

In this session we will go beyond the rigidly timed and passive postures so commonly taught in Yin classes. We will practice both still and dynamic postures for developing core strength and balance, and the flowing of postures in smooth transitions from pose to pose.

Mahatma Gandhi said that “politics should be sacred.” He didn’t mean that it should be religious, or focused on doctrine or dogma. He meant it should emerge from a deeper conversation, wiser reflection, and a more compassionate field of consciousness than normally dominates the public sphere. Aligning ourselves with the truth in our hearts, we’ll create a new political consciousness and birth a more enlightened world.

Releasing Limiting Beliefs & Trauma From The Body
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Have you ever been triggered by something you know isn't worth getting bothered over - but can't seem to shake it off? Do you continue to find yourself in the same patterns, over & over, despite your high level of awareness? Do you have all the understandings & education, yet there's still this massive disconnect in your body & experience?    Often times, the personal development & spiritual healing we do does amazing things for our consciousness. However, the body still hangs onto the past. Why is that? Memory gets stored in the body & creates deposits in our tissues - creating aches, pains, dis-ease & upset. To truly get rid of the past & fully embody our Authentic Self, we need to incorporate the body.    This workshop will take you through Julianne's path from self destruction to ultimate embodiment. She'll share with you the secrets of fully coming into your Truth & knowing yourself like never before. In doing so, you heel the deepest layers of who you are which frees you to create the life you desire & deserve.    This is the ultimate transformation & uplevel.

The Center of Your Universe: Freedom for hips and lower back  Tight hips and lower back are mainly caused by the habitual way we sit or stand. Our freedom lies in simply learning how to sit or stand in the most optimal way. Once we know that, we can enjoy all of our daily activities with greater ease. Learn how to translate asana instruction into daily life and vice versa. We will begin with basic poses and progress from there learning how to protect knees and lower backs from pain all along the way. For some students, this could be the most freedom they have felt in their body in a long time.

20-hour Trauma-Conscious Yoga Training for teachers and service providers with Judy Weaver
Limited Capacity seats available

This separately ticked immersion takes place Thursday, March 12th 8am-5pm, and 8am-12pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. To register click here: https://sedonayogafestival.com/yoga-for-ptsd-training/


Trauma-Conscious Yoga is based on the understanding that trauma is held in the cells of the body and mind – it is physiological rather than psychological and that reconnecting the body and mind with the synchronization of conscious breath, movement and concentration in a safe, secure and predictable environment supports healing and wellness. Another contributing factor is the feeling of isolation that occurs for trauma survivors which is recognized as a primary contributing factor to suicide. The evidence-based protocol manages and eases trauma’s negative consequences occurring in the body mind by reducing potential triggers of stress and providing choices which is the opposite of trauma. A large part of the physical benefits is the release of calming and positive thought producing chemicals which occur when in social gatherings with like-minded individuals. Practitioners learn techniques to reconnect and develop awareness of the bodymind needs in that moment.
This course is designed to develop an understanding of the effects of a broad spectrum of trauma survivors, the biological impacts of trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress (Disorder)/PTS(D) and the healing dynamics of Trauma-Conscious Yoga (TCY), Post Traumatic Growth (PTG) and “Inner Technology for PTSD”. Participants will learn how to use the information that they have gained in this course to teach a TCY class to a variety of trauma demographics, as well as, practical tools and techniques to manage stress, anxiety and the side effects of PTS(D). The training will be interactive which gives participants practical experience, plus the opportunity to expound upon what they learned in the course.

Be a Force of Positive Change — Spiritual Activism through Yoga Practice
Limited Capacity seats available

The coexistence of light and darkness is part of Nature's design. The interaction between them is also natural. But when the interplay of light and darkness polarizes, it engenders chaos, and this chaotic battle and its outcome is what is known as the kali yuga. As individuals alone we may not bring the conflict in today's world to an end. But through purpose-driven structured practice, we can create a collective consciousness powerful enough to bring about an atmosphere of inner harmony and mutual love and cooperation.    Each of us embodies light. When we emit this energy together, darkness and the painful confusion created by it will lose its effect. This, in turn, reflects a more balancing energy in nature and our outer world. Accelerating healing, and nullifying the damaging effects of conflict is within our scope, provided we have a clear understanding that collective consciousness is created when we commit ourselves to personal practice collectively.    In this session, we'll discuss:  - The origin of the kali yuga and what comes next  - Spiritual activism vs. activism in the world  - The power and purpose of group practice  - Why now is the time to make an effort to accelerate the transformation of darkness to light, and how we can do this   And learn a practice for nullifying conflict and accelerating healing and peace.

Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Remembering who you are...seems important these days. Our society isn't really setup to allow for such notions and all the veins which stem from this core expansion such as bi-locating, great self love, understanding of universal the energy flow, the ability to miraculously heal your self and others, creating your own reality and times lines, etc.... Getting in touch with your unlimited potential as the powerful being you are with the support of the Sedona vortex is one way we remove the box regarding a Sedona experience. Integrating QiGong into the experience is always part of the practice.

A Sattvic and Sexy Workshop: The Practice of Pure. Love. Now.
Limited Capacity seats available

For Women Only
Radically reframing sexuality as spirituality for women who are ready to embrace and enhance their intimate connection with themselves and their partner(s). 
Many women have a hard time finding balance between beauty and boldness especially when we are shamed with learned labels that carry shame and guilt.  This has led to a lot of confusion as we begin to question and shake long-held societal belief systems that have saturated our ideals and owned our definitions of sexuality and spirituality for so long.  Rina Jakubowicz will break down the walls of taboos and lay everything out so no woman feels judged, shy, or ashamed of being their most gorgeous and badass self.  The word “sattvic” is the highest of the three gunas (qualities) in yoga philosophy and means pure (grace). The two lower gunas are tamas (inertia) and rajas (agitation). When we act from the lower gunas we act from fear, ego, selfishness, impulse and emotion. When we act from a sattvic place, we have a higher purpose and are grounded, objective, calm and clear.  By choosing the words “Sattvic and Sexy” in the title, Rina is urging women to learn that they can be pure and sexy at the same time. 
You will learn:
  • Using mindfulness & reflection to identify self-suppression and step into our optimal, completely satisfied lives as a woman who is both nurturing and unburdened...
  • How to break belief systems that don’t serve you anymore…
  • How to make any action sattvic (pure)…
Rina’s hope is to inspire women to fearlessly love, honor their sensuality and thrive in intimate relationships. Note: For Women Only. Intimate sexual discussions will be had. No sexual techniques will be practiced during the class so don’t worry. :)

Form & Formless: Hindu / Buddhist Deities & Moksha (Enlightenment)
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

This class will incorporate both wisdom and practices. So that the deep secrets of working with your Ishtadevata (archetypes) is revealed to help you in all 4 Purusharthas of your life - Artha (material needs), Kama (desires), Dharma (your life purpose) and ultimately, Moksha (Enlightenment).

Enlightenment (in the Vedanta tradition) is the journey of Knowing the Self, abiding in the Self and seeing the same Self in others with love and compassion. Manoj will guide you through the 3 practices of non dualistic Advaita Vedanta philosophy as it applies to archetypes: Shravanam (listening), Mananam (contemplation) and Nidhidhyasana (abiding in the Self).

The question then arises, what role do these deities such as Ganesh, Shiva, Lakshmi, Buddha,Tara play in this journey?. Manoj will bring in statues of these deities and relate their symbolisms to our journey to enlightenment. Through humorous archetypical story telling, discover your Isthadevata (personal archetype), uncover their secret symbolisms and learn the five ways to work with them as part of a practice towards spiritual awakening.

Manoj will help you discover your deity archetype/Ishtadevata.

Everything we experience comes first through the body by way of sensation. Based on what happened previously, what we feel in the body is often seized by associated memories of the past. These memories then misinform the mind on what to think and how to behave. We will explore “the edge”, the place where intensity and your ability to relax intersect, and kinesthetically develop skills to stay calm under pressure. After learning to detect and work with your personal edge, you will be given accessible and discreet yogic techniques for any moment to instantly counteract and balance the daily impacts of stress. In this presentation we will explore how to widen the gap between habituated thinking and pre-programmed responses, empowering you to take your life off of autopilot and inspire newness, unleash creativity and access fresh perspective in each moment.

Yoga and Essential Oils: Harmony to the mind and body through essential oils
Limited Capacity seats available

Experience the harmonizing earth elements of plants in the yoga practice with essential oils. Let the unique aromas and powerful healing powers of each plant support you to go within.        The approach combines yoga with the use of essential oils to deepen and enhance the yoga practice. Students have the opportunity to experience the power of aromatherapy as a way to stay with intentional breath and focus and to facilitate releasing and softening into their practice. When we add natural, harmonizing earth element of plants into our practice with essential oils, we enhance the experience by bringing in the powerful healing energy each plant provides.     Have you ever been affected by scents and odors?  Scents that perhaps evoke emotions or past experiences?  Baked bread goods, citrus scents etc.?   When we inhale these scents, they connect to the nasal receptors that are also connected to the limbic system, the part of our brain that is related to our emotions.  Beyond the ways that essential oils can support our immune system and protect us from environmental and seasonal threats, they can directly affect our emotional body.  Within Yoga Philosophy, this part of our being is called “Manomaya Kosha”.  Manomaya Kosha takes in information from the senses and processes it.    Come to this class to accelerate the ability to overcome the mind through the body. We will experience the power of essential oils to deepen our practice through our sense of smell and to accelerate the ability to overcome the mind through the body.  We will smell the fresh Earth coming alive and feel our bodies remember this ancient wisdom of nature.

“I believe when a woman or man experiences a “setback” it’s truly a “setup” for she/he to EVOLVE into their truth and create the life they want to live.” Better For It Now, is a 7-Principle online program that encourages a daily morning routine, having faith in one self and/or in something higher than self, establishing/creating loving and healthy relationships, maintaining confidence, taking a stand for what you believe, turning your what “if’s” to what “is” and living your life fearlessly.  The asana practice focus on confidence and the guided meditation is a reflection of moving towards our future and leaving our past behind. We will review the 7 principles through discussion and journaling.

Heaven, Man, Earth QiGong
Limited Capacity filling up

Heaven, Man and Earth Qi Gong is a simple but very powerful practice.  All experience levels are welcome.
All living things on earth rely on their Heaven and Earth connection to stay strong, aligned and healthy.  Heaven, Man and Earth Qi Gong sets up a strong flow of energy similar to the pattern found within galaxies, atoms and gyroscopes. This field creates a protective buffer around our bodies, keeping us physically and mentally resilient.  Activating the energy meridians allows us to connect to the power of Heaven and the power of Earth, allowing their energy to flow through us, refreshing and cleansing our energy field.

Qi Gong movements help to improve and maintain health by recharging your Qi. About 70% of the human body is water. A healthy river must flow freely. If your fluids are not moving properly, your body becomes stagnant. The circulation of the lymphatic fluid, blood, spinal fluid, and all energies in the body are encouraged by this practice. 
Qigong can help you:to:• Release stress by reaching Wuji or balance. • Improve the circulation of your cardio and lymphatic systems. • Breathe and move correctly • Activate your core energies. • Cultivate your Qi (increase energy). • Strengthen digestive functions; ease constipation. 
• Reduce your waistline. • Improve your sleep. • Strengthen your bones, joints, and tendons. 
• Reduce the risk of accidental falls with better balance.
