We combine traditional ingredients and methods with local and seasonal produce to create a cuisine that is exotic yet comforting. Our goal is to thoughtfully and consciously prepare food for large groups that is beautiful, abundant, nourishing and perhaps even transformative. We are thrilled for the opportunity to serve the Sedona Yoga Festival in 2018 with breakfast and lunch service and grab and go items, with plenty of vegan and gluten free options.

Traumatic Stress: Resiliency and Healing with Yoga

 In providing these trainings over the years we have realized that it is the same YOGA that benefits everyone, and that trauma works in the body in a consistent way. These universal principles may be applied to each unique individual through the care of the teacher. We want to give teachers the tools to take these skillful means to heal their communities throughout the world. 20-hour integrated training for yoga teachers and service providers. Begins Thursday, February 8th from 8am-5pm, and February 9-11 from 8am to 12pm. Participants enjoy full access to SYF on the off hours. LEARN MORE


Note from Music Director Valerie “Sanjali” Irons: “I’ve been attending and working behind the scenes of the Sedona yoga festival since the very first year. The yoga and workshop presenters at Sedona Yoga Festival are consistently among some of the very best the yoga community has to offer – and 2018 continues to raise the bar!  I’d like to take a moment and shine the spotlight on the amazing musical offerings available at SYF 2018.  From kirtan, sound-healing, sacred music artists and DJ’s, Sedona Yoga Festival 2018 has something for everyone!” LEARN MORE
