Sedona Yoga Festival Prepares for Seventh Annual Global Gathering in the Red Rocks

Sedona Yoga Festival (SYF), which runs from March 14 to 17 at the Sedona Performing Arts Center/Red Rock High School, has all the elements of a traditional yoga conference. But at its heart, this event will always be a festival—a celebration of life at the deepest level. Whether you are a seasoned yogi who wants to delve into any of the 200 workshops, talks and events relevant to your work or you are a complete beginner wanting to explore a variety of yoga styles, SYF has something for everyone.

Held in Sedona, rich in energy “vortexes,” SYF is the ideal place to create a concentration of energy that will resonate far beyond Sedona, and long after. With 50-plus excursions on the sacred land, you are sure to tap into the healing and inspiration available. SYF's 108 presenters have a commitment to consciousness and unfailing authenticity, which resonates in Sedona’s spiritually charged environment.

SYF is held at a campus venue, giving attendees a singular gathering place from which to explore the city and its trails. The vendor village, with a mix of conscious boutique vendors from around the country, is reason to stop by if you are just passing through. With wellness practitioners on-site for appointments, a book fair, live music and kirtan throughout the weekend, kids’ yoga all day, and a selection of food vendors to choose from, it’s a full weekend. The Yoga for PTSD training, and many of the classes, offers continuing education units. And, to top it off, SYF is a zero-waste event.

Cost: $75-$700. Location: 995 Upper Red Rock Loop Rd., Sedona. To book passes or classes, visit
