If you’re craving an outdoorsy escape, a spiritual reboot, and indulgence (and who isn’t these days?), Sedona checks all the boxes. You can refresh your creativity with alfresco art classes and festivals, rejuvenate your psyche with mountaintop yoga and metaphysical Jeep tours, and enliven your senses with live music and flavor-packed food.
Things to Do
Sedona is known as a spiritual Shangri-La, buzzing with natural high-energy vortexes and swirling electromagnetic fields supposedly infusing visitors with inspiration and healing. During a beginner-friendly Rise and Shine outdoor yoga session with Aumbase Sedona, you'll amble to Airport Mesa Vortex, a high plateau famed for its panoramic views and power to create serenity. As the sun rises, you'll perform flowing poses, harmonize your chakras, and connect with the sienna-toned earth.
At Red Rock State Park, go on a geology hike to discover how Arizona's Mogollon Rim rusted and receded into Sedona's burnt orange bluffs. An archaeology walk will acquaint you with the Sinagua, the pre-Columbian people who etched petroglyphs and built dwellings in the sheer cliffs. Or you can stroll along herb-scented Oak Creek to spot great blue herons, otters, and mule deer.
