Sequencing Intensive: Complete Vinyasa Yoga
Limited Capacity seats available

This is an add-on experience for those who want to come early and dive in! To register for this experience please visit: https://sedonayogafestival.com/syf2019-pre-post-conference-immersions/

This workshop is for teachers and students who are looking to deepen their anatomical knowledge of yoga postures, while learning to create mindful and intelligent sequences. This workshop will help students/teachers gain a greater understanding of yoga anatomy and a heightened sense of body awareness. We will work on putting together sequences based on proper body mechanics and structural alignment as well as integrate and infuse energetic elements and spirituality into the theme of a class.

This workshop will inspire you to be more creative and intentional in designing and delivering the complete yoga class!

Psoas release for heart opening
Limited Capacity seats available

Our bodies are a dumping ground for tension and stress. When we experience stress, tension, anxiety, or trauma, the body immediately goes into the ‘fight or flight’ response. The Psoas muscle (hip flexor) is directly linked to this primal instinct to protect. Under stress the Psoas contracts, becoming tight and short. Add to it the common movements of everyday life and various forms of exercise (cycling, running, hiking), the hip flexors are commonly the tightest muscle group in the body. This class systematically opens the group of hip flexor muscles, as well as muscles of the side body, allowing for greater ease in back bending, and energetic heart opening. Create freedom in the spine and calm in the mind. Release the hips and open your heart!

Mantras, Mudras, Malas
Limited Capacity seats available

A saying from the Vedas claims that "Speech is the essence of humanity." All of what humanity thinks and ultimately becomes is determined by the expression of ideas and actions through speech and writing. Ideas remain un-actualized until they are created through the power of speech. MANTRA are words or phrases repeated over and over again to bring about the vibration and/or resonance of action. Bascially, our thoughts become words, our words create vibration, that vibration creates our life. The simple, beautiful hand expressions called MUDRAS, play a vital but subtle role in the yoga tradition. There are hundreds of mudras, each meant to express or bring forth a quality state of mind such as fearlessness, strength or grounded-ness. They are believed to have a therapeutic effect, helping to restore and heal imbalances, eliminating excess tension, strengthening weak immunity and addressing aches and pains. What is a MALA? Malas are beautiful, they are the “yoga-bling” that yogis gravitate toward to “be a yogi”. The term mala is derived from the Sanskrit word “Japamala,” which is a string of beads used for prayer and meditation by Hindus and Buddhists (similar to the concept of a Rosary in the Catholic faith). The string is made up of 108 individual beads, which are used to keep count while chanting or repeating a mantra while meditating. The number 108 has spiritual significance and is considered sacred in the Hindu religion. The number 1 stands for God, the Universe, the Divine, or your Ultimate Truth; 0 stands for emptiness and humility in your spiritual practice; and 8 stands for infinity and timelessness. 1+8 = 9 which is an extremely auspicious number in numerology. The beginning and the end… rebirth. In this workshop we will explore simple MUDRAS for healing, MANTRA for prayer and connection, and MALAS and how they can support your practice. All levels of yogis welcome, enrollment includes a set of mala beads. Workshop includes a 90 minute Vinyasa practice, pranayama, meditation, mantra and lecture. Includes 60-120 minutes asana practice, followed by lecture.

Yoga, Self Inquiry and the Oracle
Limited Capacity seats available

Recent brain science has shown that we spend most of our time exploiting what we already know as opposed to exploring. Exploring is the realm of creativity, intuition and innovation. Are you ready to move, think and create in new ways? In this workshop we will explore our inner landscape with the sacred tools of oracle cards, yoga nidra and movement. All of our answers lie within us and these practices will help you to connect with your inner teacher.
