ARRIVE IN SEDONA

Welcome to Sedona!

Upon arrival at Flagstaff Pulliam Airport, you will be met by a driver and assisted with your bags for a private transfer to your hotel.

Once you are settled in, we will meet on the hotel grounds for a two hour yoga class, guided meditation, and intention setting ceremony. We will provide you with your yoga mat and appropriate props.

HIKING AIRPORT MESA VORTEX

We will start today with specially curated breakfast at the hotel before a short drive to the base of Airport Mesa Vortex.

When we arrive, we’ll practice an outdoor sun salutation, before beginning the 4 mile hike loop. There will be some spots of steep vertical hiking involved, but the miraculous views from the top are well worth it. You will also see the infamous twisted trees and there have been many reports of colored orb sightings.

At the top, you will have time to enjoy your nutritious packed lunch before we come together for a vortex yoga session and guided meditation, balancing sequences and pranayama to help connect us with the healing powers of this spiritual location.

For dinner, we will enjoy a chef prepared meal to replenish and nourish our bodies.

After dinner, you are invited to participate in a restorative yin class using props to help improve your body’s capacity for healing and balancing.

YOGA WORKSHOP, CACAO CEREMONY & SOUND BATH

Today, we will jump right into a 3 hour yoga workshop following a healthy breakfast at the hotel. In the workshop, you will have the opportunity to push yourself to try more advanced inversions and arm balances with detailed instruction and the watchful eye of a trained yoga professional. We will also spend time delving deeper into specific pranayama techniques to help utilize the full capacity of our breath on and off the mat.

For lunch, we will visit Chocolate Tree, acclaimed as an ‘organic vegetarian oasis’. Here we will participate in a cacao ceremony, which many believe can facilitate in heart opening and connection with one’s higher self.

With our bellies full and our hearts open, we’ll explore the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, coined ‘the arts and soul’ of Sedona. This quaint village is home to some of Sedona’s best galleries and local artisan shops.

You’ll have the option to visit downtown Sedona afterwards to browse main street.

We will have a nutritious dinner at hotel before partaking in a combined reiki and sound healing
journey with local Reiki healer Arthur Baird. Sound baths provide the perfect vehicle to become more in tune with yourself and release any built up tension or stress burrowed in your nervous system.

EXPLORING THE GRAND CANYON OR ANTELOPE CANYON

Another morning of enjoying the detoxing power of eating a clean, plant-based breakfast.

Today we will be making the short and scenic drive to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. A place that no matter how many times you may have visited will always render you speechless. It truly is one of Mother Nature’s finest masterpieces. We will have the opportunity to partake on a hike down into the canyon, where we will have a short grounding meditation and enjoy a packed healthy lunch.

The drive to and from the Grand Canyon is considered one of the most scenic in America, and we will have plenty of opportunities to stop and marvel at the landscape.

You can also choose to instead take a tour to Antelope Canyon and Horsehoe bend which we will organise for you. 

Dinner will be at the hotel tonight, followed by an opportunity to partake in a star-gazing walk.
