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.
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 feasted on delicious, locally sourced food.
We practiced self-care with daily yoga and meditation in the stunning Yoga Shala.
We woke with the sun.
And we closed with gratitude.
If you missed out on the Soul Revival, send me a quick email via the Contact tab to be added to the VIP list for my next retreat.
You will be one of the first to know where we are going next and be eligible for sweet early bird discounts.
So much gratitude to you, free spirits!

Friends, I am over the moon about this retreat offering! I’ve partnered with Adzenture Retreats to co-create the experience of a lifetime. Let me paint you a picture…
Our home away from home is right on the beach where solitude is just a short walk away. Your retreat includes daily yoga with me, including specialty workshops (I’m extra excited about our New Year Intention Setting workshop). All freshly prepared meals and coffee (most importantly) are included in your retreat package. Adventures include zip lining through the rainforest canopy, visiting the indigenous Bribri tribe to learn about their tradition of chocolate making, hiking through the jungle followed by a refreshing waterfall swim, and a traditional cacao ceremony around the bonfire.
If you are feeling the pull to register, take the first step and answer the call of your deep intuition! That’s what this retreat is all about- peeling away layers of falsehood and fear to reveal our true essence of unity. This is an opportunity to connect to the innocent, wild, vibrant part of yourself that has always been and will always be. It’s a chance to steep yourself in the soulfulness of your yoga practice, to embrace your aliveness. All you need to do is show up for yourself with an open heart and mind.
Take the plunge and register HERE!
(pssst- Early Birds receive $200 off until September 15!)
I can’t wait to explore the world with you!
Friends, I am currently co-creating a magical adventure to COSTA RICA with my friends from Adzentures Retreats!

Don’t wait to travel, folks. Let’s take the plunge together 🙂
We. Are. The. Heart.
This wasn’t just the slogan for the first ever Heartland Yoga Festival, this was a mantra that we embodied as a community. We truly came together to unite in gratitude, play and love. Can you feel the reverberations of our intentions?
Here are just a few of our adventures from last weekend…
Yoga + Hiking, spelunking style.
Tony Alvarez now has many adoring yogi fans after turning my class into a rock concert.
Serious fun with Gina Caputo, Yogini on the Loose.
Community art making moment led by Jamie Winter Dawson, you know I’m all about it.
Queens Lauren Leduc of Karma Tribe Yoga and Angela Cronk of Hagoyah are the inspiring visionaries behind this whole shindig.
THANK YOU COMMUNITY for making this ground breaking project a reality. For more amazing photos of the fest, visit Yogafolio.
Next, Yoga + Hiking at Parkville Nature Sanctuary! Details and registration coming soon, stay tuned 🙂
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.
Just…WOW. What an amazing group of people moving, breathing and cultivating joyful energy. Thank you for sharing in this community exploration and being open to intentional PLAY!
Up next, Yoga + Hiking at…SWOPE PARK!
Sunday, May 27th, 10-11:30am. Hope to see you there, free spirits 🙂
It’s officially time to celebrate spring with all of the outdoor yoga!
Next stop on the Yoga + Hiking train- the Overland Park Arboretum. We LOVE this place. Who wouldn’t? It’s magical. Check out the fun we had last year:
Can’t wait for another year of play and community connection.
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.
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,
How cool is it that we have a holiday completely centered around LOVE?!
Often, we get swept up in the perception of Valantine’s Day as a holiday of romantic love. I’m thinking it’s time we flip the script.
Yoga teaches us to love ourselves fiercely. Before we can show compassion out in the world, we must show love to number one. Join me at Westport Yoga for a heart opening vinyasa practice followed by ample pampering (think essential oil self massage and CHOCOLATE). Bring a friend, partner or fly solo. Pre-registration is required, you can sign up riiiiight HERE 🙂
