We are tailoring our services to guests who are interested in “spiritual experiences at Sedona’s sacred sites.”  If you want a buns-of-steel hike, we are NOT a match for you as we do leisurely less-than-a-mile nature walks to appreciate the surrounding plant life and magnificent vortex views. Then we pause and open up to soak in the energy through Yoga and meditation. Our very spiritual red rock excursions are designed to help you clear your mind, release any stress, enjoy being out in nature, and actually open up to feeling Sedona’s vortex energy.  We customize our activities to match your group’s interests–whether it is a gal’s getaway, a couple on vacation, a family adventure, or a business R&R gathering.

Testimonials about our Sedona Spiritual Experience

Warriors Under Wedding Tree

“Johanna, With immeasurable gratitude, I thank you…
With immeasurable gratitude, I thank you for taking me and Sue on a beautiful hike to such spiritual and healing locations. I am grateful that our paths have crossed. Through your teaching, I learned how important it is to see beyond challenges to solutions, and to grow beyond limitations into new revelations. I felt embraced with such comfort as you guided us on our own personal spiritual journey. I came across this quote which reminded me of you: “Some people are truly angels on earth. They fill our hearts with gratitude for who they are and the wonderful ways they express love and caring to us and to the world.”
— Doreen Virtue

“I will always cherish this experience in my heart…
I will always cherish this experience in my heart, and i look forward to seeing you in the future.  With Love & Gratitude,”
— Tracy Gordon

“Johanna is overflowing with incredible positive energy.
Not only was she my yoga instructor, she also became my tour guide, holistic healer, spiritual guide and friend. Our Sedona vortex yoga hike experience was so healing that when my dear friend Sandy returned home, her cancer was in remission for months. A year later, as she passed on, Sandy requested that we scatter her ashes on the site where we had done yoga with Johanna in Sedona. Johanna led our family and friends in a Sedona farewell celebration of life for Sandy that we will always cherish.”  — Susan Wade, Executive Secretary, Ft. Worth, Texas

“…a life changing event for me.
Johanna, … you will be glad to know I am still practicing yoga and I still believe that the day you took me on the mountain in Sedona was a life changing event for me… Keep it up.”
— Antonia Derling Rogers, Medical Lab Technologist, Madison, Ohio
