3 Days of Total Energetic Transformation
Artists and authors. Healers and holistic practitioners. Ayurvedic and energetic experts. Philosophers and performers. Musicians and meditation leaders. Yogis—and YOU.
What do the members of this diverse, dedicated and delightful squad have in common? We’re all part of the life-changing Sedona Yoga Festival. But more importantly, we’re ALL the guardians of our collective consciousness. There’s never been a more critical time to come together—and there will never be a more powerful place to do this than Sedona.
SYF2022 is a unique opportunity to gather together in joyful pursuit of possibility, in one of the most transformative environments on the planet. Surrounded by natural beauty and swirling in intentional energy, you’ll enjoy three days of peace, practice, conversation and celebration. Craft your own evolutionary path with a customizable curriculum. From the spiritual heritage of yoga to the future of the practice as we know it, you’ll expand and explore under the guidance of our esteemed faculty—and in the embrace of your peers.
We invite you to join us for an enlightening, thoroughly enjoyable journey to the next level—whatever that looks like to you! Because here’s the great thing about evolution: by definition, it’s open to everyone. There’s no wrong place to start, and there’s no pre-ordained finish line. Even better: although mind-body-spirit transformation can be a deeply personal process, it’s also supported, empowered and amplified by community.
Now in our eighth year, Sedona Yoga Festival is honored to be leading the conversation—
and facilitating authentic connection between people, passion and potential. Whether you’re an experienced teacher or an absolute beginner, we believe evolution is a collaboration. And we couldn’t be more excited about what we’re creating…together.

YOGA FOR PTSD
Optional integrated 20-hour training for Yoga teachers.
“Traumatic Stress: Resiliency and Healing with Yoga” is designed to provide teachers with the skills to share yoga with First Responders, Veterans, trauma survivors, those affected by PTSD and many more. Scientific studies now show that yoga and other mindfulness practices have a significant positive contribution on alleviating PTS and STS symptoms, and on strengthening body and mind resiliency. Students will leave this trauma-sensitive yoga training with the necessary tools to begin working with this population.
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. 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.
There are places in the world that simply exist on a higher plane, and where it’s easier to tap into one’s highest self. Sedona is one of those places.

Continuing education is a vital part of certification programs designed to credential professionals across the United States to ensure licensed professionals access to reliable, credible, high-quality continuing education throughout their careers. By obtaining continuing education (CE), a practitioner demonstrates a personal and public commitment to enhance continued competence in their profession, which is why it continues to play such a critical role in a board specific professional certification program.
