“Sedona is not only an amazing person but she’s also a really, really great yoga teacher. I had the privilege to join Sedona in Costa Rica in the beginning of 2019 for the Costa Rica Soul Revival Yoga retreat organized by Adzenture Retreats and Sedona.
From her morning yoga flows, to yin yoga and meditations in the evenings, to her intention setting workshop; her energy is so positive, classes leave me feeling connected and grounded. For all the calmness and seriousness of the classes, there were definitely long bouts of laughter and general happiness.
Highly, HIGHLY recommend you checking out her classes and join her VIP list and be one of the first to know where her next retreat is going to be!” -Renee

“Sedona Alvarez is a wonderful, inspirational teacher. Her classes leave you feeling strong, grounded, and connected. I had the pleasure of experiencing her teaching on her Adzenture Retreats to Costa Rica last week and it was one of the most magical experiences I’ve ever had. We got to bask in the sun during yoga every morning, enjoy workshops, and share adventures, tears, and most importantly, laughs. You will not regret taking one of Sedona’s classes, or going on one of her retreats! She has such a good soul and is a joy to be around.” -Sarah
