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.

If gathering for a yoga festival isn’t a high enough energy already, register for any of the 100+ on the land sessions with local healers, guides, and yogis, or join international presenters offering yoga on the red rocks. *permitted by the Coconino Forest Service
