Costa Rica Soul Revival~ An Epic Adventure!

Costa Rica Soul Revival with Adzenture Retreats was everything.

I am forever grateful to this unique mix of souls who gathered from all over to co-create this experience of a lifetime.  We are forever bonded by this adventure.CostaRicaSedona37.jpg

There were so many epic moments!  We faced fears and crossed some big things off our bucket lists…

We went gliding through the rainforest canopy.

We learned about the indigenous Bribri tribe and made our own chocolate from scratch.

We went chasing waterfalls.

And we explored the surrounding towns with our new best adventure buds.

All this excitement was balanced by a soul nourishing stay at our beautiful retreat center, The Goddess Garden.

We luxuriated.

We feasted on delicious, locally sourced food.

We practiced self-care with daily yoga and meditation in the stunning Yoga Shala.

We Are the Heart <3

heartlandyogafestpromo

Happy Summer Solstice!  Celebrate with us at Heartland Yoga Festival this weekend, June 22-24 in Kansas City!  I will be leading a hike through the trails around Unity Village at 7am on Saturday the 23rd followed by community yoga with live music by Tony Alvarez at 8am!  If you are unfamiliar with the intention behind this movement, no one says it better than the founders themselves.

Heartland Yoga Festival Manifesto:

You and I…we are the heart. The vital essence. The center of love and compassion. The vitality of this land. Within this heart is a quickening. It started as a whisper and will crescendo to a wild roar.

Our time of disconnection is over. We’ve had enough of staring at our phones instead of looking into the eyes of our neighbors. We are done with being detached from Mother Earth. We are done being so busy that we forget to live. There is no more hiding our pain and self-criticism. There is no more illusion, no more pretending. The time to communally awaken to our beautifully connected souls is right here and right now. In the open heart of this country.

This is the Heartland. Where it’s still cool to be a good neighbor and to smile at strangers. Where ego doesn’t shake authenticity. Where we support local, and tend to the Earth with loving care. Where all it takes is a simple reason and a beautiful day to come together in celebration. Where community always trumps competition.Where we all belong. A place of great pride.

As we unite for Heartland Yoga Festival, through our connection, our shared breath, our authenticity, wildness, and utter unabashed delight, we will send a pulsing vibration of love and light. A positive charge so big that it will bleed beyond our borders, radiating outward, penetrating and changing all beings for the highest good.

YOUR heart, breath, and light are vitally important. Join us as we shift into a space of love, connection, and radical self and communal care. We are the heart and this is the Heartland.

Intentional Play at the Arboretum

Well, it only took us three tries (third time’s a charm), but it finally happened!  After an April filled with cursed, snowy Sundays, we finally got a perfect spring day for our Yoga + Hike excursion at the Overland Park Arboretum!  And it was worth the wait.

Why Yoga + Hiking?

28660632_584379111896365_4268655158193949581_nWhy start a Yoga + Hiking practice?  Well, for starters…

Forest Therapy (immersion into restorative environments) is scientifically proven to:

  • reduce stress
  • relieve mental fatigue
  • boost immune system
  • lower blood pressure
  • help regulate blood sugar levels
  • boost creativity
  • sharpen the senses
  • improve focus

The list goes on…

So there you have it.  Nature= medicine.

Nervous?  Don’t fret your pretty little head.  Our moderate hikes are beginner friendly and the yoga portion is all levels.  So really, the question is…what’s holding you back?

Yoga + Hiking is BACK!

It’s officially the last day of February, and you know what that means…

Yoga + Hiking is back in full swing!  

If you are an adventurous yogi thinking outside the yoga studio, we’ve got you.  Karma Tribe Yoga and I have been working hard to bring you the most high quality yoga hikes at beautiful, restorative destinations in and around Kansas City.  This year you can look forward to even more opportunity to grow and expand your horizons.  Yoga + Hiking season spans from March-November, which means you have 9 different opportunities to discover hidden gems in your own backyard and BEYOND (stay tuned to hear about our Yoga + Hiking Retreats).  Travel with us to a new destination each month to explore your inner and outer worlds.

Forest Therapy (immersion into restorative environments) has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and relieve mental fatigue.  Stepping away from the endless buzz of our modern world to tune in with ourselves and nature can be profoundly healing.  Look no further than mother nature to recharge, create more balance in every facet of life, and connect to your deep intuitive self.

unnamed-19

We hope to see you at our first Yoga + Hiking excursion at the Blue River Parkway Trails on Sunday, March 18 from 10-11:30am!  More details coming very soon.  Stay in the loop by joining our Facebook group, Yoga + Hiking with Sedona Alvarez.

Looking Forward with Love,

Sedona

Elemental Yoga + Journaling Series

This workshop incorporates Ayurveda (the sister science to yoga), yoga asana, meditation and journaling to facilitate emotional healing. In order to make space for new, we must clear out the old. Be prepared to purge.

Class structure: 1 hour elemental yoga flow (focus on a different element each week), 10 minute meditation, 20 minute journaling
