Sedona AZ Retreats
Would you like to enjoy nurturing yoga and hiking amid Sedona's mystical vortexes? Sedona Spirit Yoga & Hiking invites you to attend any one of six "ultimate" Sedona-Grand Canyon Retreats. Yes, you are in good enough shape to do the hikes, and no yoga experience is necessary. This retreat is for you if you would like to get away to a magnificently beautiful place with great hotel lodging, have fun, access inner peace, and embrace life more fully.

After 20+ years' leading retreats, we've combined features guests love in our Ultimate Sedona-Grand Canyon Adventure, a 4-night, 5-day, spiritual journey. Enjoy deluxe accommodations at Arabella Boutique Hotel with red rock views, swimming pool, veranda fire pit, hot tub and award-winning Mexican restaurant. Relax with daily yoga, iRest Yoga Nidra, and meditation instruction geared to all levels-beginners to experts. Enjoy a welcome dinner, gentle yoga hikes to Sedona's magnificent red rock vortexes, and a guided tour of the Grand Canyon with lunch and the elegant El Tovar Hotel. Sign up for extra healings and massage. Experience valuable life coaching, and learn practical tools for staying contented amid daily challenges from retreat leader, Johanna Maheshvari Mosca, PhD, author of Cultivate Contentment.

In 2011-12, Johanna was Featured Teacher of the Arizona Yoga Association. Her retreats were recommended in Yoga Journal three times and listed first in Sunset Magazine's "Ten Inspirational Retreats." Johanna and her team of expert yoga hike leaders guide you to open your heart and experience the Sedona vortex energy that's famous for expanding consciousness.

Our retreat theme is "Relax, Release, Receive and Renew. Become more of yourself in Sedona." We guide you to look into your life to discover what there is to release or shift so you can experience greater joy. Clients go home with a happy heart and a renewed sense of strength and balance, feeling empowered, more alive, and able to cope with whatever life may bring.

Join us Nov. 5-9, or plan to attend Jan. 21-25 New Year's Launch, March 18-22 Spring Equinox Celebration, May 6-10 Blossom Time, Oct. 14-18 Fall Harvest, or Nov. 11-15, 2017-Thriving on Thankfulness.

Retreat guest Cathy commented: "Wow, Johanna! I was delighted to experience five glorious days in renewal and rejuvenation with you in beautiful Sedona. As a result, I am amazed at my newly-found clarity of purpose.  I highly recommend you, your heartfelt presence, your passion for helping people, and your awesome retreat to everyone!"

The Way of The Seabhean
October 21-23 in Sedona, AZ

The Way of The Seabhean
Are you ready to follow ancient pathways to release family issues and personal blocks?
Would you like to travel the three worlds: lower, middle and upper while connecting with the Stone people and shining ones?
Have you always wanted to journey with your totems and ancestral teachers?
All this an much more awaits you at The Way of the Seabhean led by Shamanic healer Amantha Murphy from Ireland, in mystical Sedona, Arizona. Amantha will help us explore journeying, soul retrieval, cutting ties, dreamtime and illusion - 'remembering' how to use our energy wisely, as we meet with Ancient Goddesses upon the Wheel of the Sun.
An invitation from Amantha:     
"I am calling to you my Sisters, to join me, in the sacred act of remembering.  Remembering all of who we are, what we carry and delving into all that we are meant to be: in our magic, our passion, our power and our grace.  Recognizing the very presence of ourdivinity, our wildness and our deep cave of memories that we carry, in our DNA, our bones and in the pumping of our blood.  From 1st woman to you, to me - we carry it all in utter safety and sacredness.  So sacred that often it is forgotten, by our fore-mothers, through the ages until, again, the call goes forth 'Come Sister, let us weave, dream and sing together again'."-Amantha
The Way of the Seabhean is an introductory retreat for women only; please join us in Sacred Sedona.

From Striving to Arriving
Where the Nowhere is the nowHERE

Boldly Going Nowhere Retreat
How long have you been working, reaching, scratching and kicking, striving to get there - only to realize that "this" there disappears into the "next" there? This moment turns into that moment. And you wake up years later to realize that joy has become a fantasy or just another "there". In all of your striving you don't notice the subtle, energy-draining effect of this cycle. There doesn't exist. Welcome to nowHERE. Our mission is to inspire a path to HERE. A place where all is manifest, all ideas are born, all possibilities exist. A place where clarity is born, peace lives, and chaos dies. A place many have been seeking - and through perpetual seeking, have perceived it to be unattainable. This place is nowhere; this place is nowHERE.
