Yoga + Hiking at Heartland Yoga Festival

Sedona Alvarez has developed Yoga + Hiking for adventurous yogis who are ready to think outside the studio. Explore your inner and outer worlds and discover hidden gems in your own backyard while making lasting connections within your Karma Tribe Yoga Community.
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. Join us for our next all levels Yoga + Hiking excursion to decompress and create more balance in every facet of life. You’ll feel recharged and deeply connected to your intuitive self.

Summer Solstice Vin/Yin
Celebrate summer with a night of Vinyasa and Yin fusion to balance your solar and lunar energies.
Join Sedona Alvarez for safe and accessible guidance through a half Yoga Mala of 54 sun salutations. A Yoga Mala is a consistent string of sun salutations in which breath is linked with movement. After experiencing this rhythmic moving meditation, we will come down to earth and dive further inward with a Yin yoga practice. Yin is a lunar style of yoga in which poses are held for a few minutes at a time in a way that is supported and integrated to target the connective tissues of the body. This is an all-levels class for everybody to enjoy in which options are offered and moments of rest are encouraged.
Maximum Participants 20. Westport Yoga KC Members, please use your MEMBER2019 Promo Code.

What is Ecstatic Dance?
Ecstatic Dance is a safe and sacred space to express yourself and connect through movement, music, and a beautifully heart-centered community. It has it’s roots in 5 rhythms and was actually birthed in Hawaii. It is now offered worldwide!
There are 3 simple agreements that cultivate a safe and sacred distraction-free environment for you to explore your own movement practice. These agreements are the core of what makes Ecstatic Dance the special experience that it is. They are:
1. No talking on the dance floor
2. Move as you wish
3. Respect the space (which includes no shoes, booze, phones, and each other’s space).
Thank you all for co-creating this with me! See ya on the dance floor!

Sedona Alvarez is on a mission to demystify the handstand with her integrated and playful approach. The handstand is not about achieving some ideal aesthetic or “nailing it” on your first try. Rather, the journey of balancing on your hands is about inviting more joy, energy and freedom into your life both on and off the mat. Getting upside down literally flips your perspective and can be a great opportunity to build confidence, tap into your courageousness and lean into fear within a safe container. This is an all-levels practice that begins with an intelligent warm up to strengthen and open the body. From there, options, variations and fun drills are offered to support your unique handstand adventure. Class winds down with plenty of grounding to bring you back to earth for a well rounded, balanced practice. Discover how empowering it can be to meet yourself exactly where you are at and take flight from there.
