The 2018 Sedona Yoga Festival Heart Center is located up at the Posse Grounds Park area where we will enjoy the Barbara’s Park Pavilion – the outdoor stage with the best view ever! – by offering free and open to the public music experiences throughout the day! AND we will hold the conscious expo, the Art exhibition, the lounge, and open mic at the Posse Grounds HUB – Sedona’s performance art venue. With all of our general plenary sessions and larger classes being held at the adjacent West Sedona School, and with food vendors and a catered lunch option, we know this will be the place to BE throughout the weekend!

The over 200 more intimate workshops and sessions that make SYF the place to “Choose Your Own Adventure” are being held around West Sedona and Uptown at Sedona’s Yoga studios and spiritual centers. We are providing shuttles AND encouraging rideshare. Class schedules vary venue by venue with offerings that range from 60m to 4h so there is plenty to choose from!

The Yoga for PTSD training and trauma informed classes as well as sound healings will be held at the Sedona Elks Lodge; Meditations at McLean Meditation Center, Spiritual talks at Unity of Sedona, Crystal, Chakra, Reiki, Energy medicine and multidimensional work at Peace Place – you get the idea! Sedona immersion awaits you. You will truly CONNECT with and TAP INTO Sedona at SYF2018. Our community is in joy to receive you.


SYF Presenters are selected for their unfailing authenticity and commitment to consciousness evolution. Vanguard teachers of Global Yoga Culture converge alongside new voices to share in dialogue, explore one another’s offerings and collaborate in presenting the most currently relevant ancient material to the attendees. With so many intimate venues in Sedona we have the privelege of hosting over 200 workshop sessions, panel discussions, and guided classes. There is definitely something for you no matter your age, experience level, or style. From absolute beginner to seasoned teacher, SYF is your annual reset, reinvigorate, and inspired destination for transformation.
