Join Sedona Alvarez for a 3-night/4-day yoga retreat focused on serenity and balance in breathtaking Zion, Utah. Here, amidst the enchanting red rock formations and the natural beauty of Zion National Park, we will deeply connect with the elemental essence of nature.
Explore mindfulness practices aligned with the elements of earth, water, air, and fire as you seek inner peace and rejuvenation. Through movement, guided meditation, tranquil hikes and contemplative activities, this retreat immerses you in the energy of these elements in a majestic setting, providing an unforgettable voyage of self-discovery and revitalization.
Root into our weekend together with an earth inspired practice that will have you feeling resourced, satiated and at home in your body. We’ll enjoy a well-rounded, low to the ground flow to get energy moving after a long day of traveling. Then, we’ll pump the brakes and dig into some deep stretches with an emphasis on lower body love. This slow and steady practice has a foundational vibe with some strength building moments, making it perfect for settling into new spaces. Invite yourself into a moment of stillness within our exciting adventure and ground down into the joy of the present moment.
Water element teaches us about going with the flow and adapting to change. We’ll move through a rhythmic flow with hip openers galore and space to get creative. Then, we’ll dive into our emotional waters with some juicy yin poses. This moving meditation is a magical tonic to get you out of your head and into your feels. Get ready to explore your inner landscape, tap into your deep intuition and harness your fluid power.
Welcome to our symbolic fire ceremony! Fire element is all about transformation and alchemy. This dynamic, invigorating flow is full of opportunities to tap into your core strength (physically and energetically) and is balanced by plenty of playful moments that will leave you feeling radiant. After building all the heat, we’ll melt into deep stretches. Time to embrace your personal power and fearlessly step into the light of your own authenticity! What are you ready to throw on the bonfire?
Our closing practice is inspired by the element of air, which is all about curiosity, expression and compassion. This breath based practice is centered around expansive heart-openers and free flowing movements that will leave you overflowing with gratitude. We’ll ventilate any stagnant energy, clear space for possibilities and prepare to leave our weekend together with the intention of stepping back into our lives with awareness. May we go out into the world and spread all the love we’ve cultivated together throughout this experience!
