Vortex Yoga Hiking: Half-Day in Sedona

3. Vortex Yoga Hiking: Half-Day in Sedona

As we embark on our hike, perhaps we’ll take a moment to start with a brief breathing exercise, visualization, or meditation so we are better able to integrate our intentions with the supportive energies of the Sedona vortex. We have found that it is helpful to do this at a later part in the hike as well. Another part of our half-day experience together will involve a walking chocolate meditation. This is a pleasurable form of mindfulness meditation that provides the same benefits as other forms of meditation with the built-in reward of chocolate! We will find the right spot on our hike for 45 minutes to 1 hour of yoga practice. As the tours are typically private groups our practice is geared to the level and preference of most individuals in the group. We will also integrate Qigong into the practice. Have the opportunity to engage in educational conversation, take photos and continue hiking if you choose.
