A heart full of unfinished events and worries is something that most people hold onto and time has come to release and let go of the old baggage
  • Bring yourself back into balance through a combination of healthy and balanced diet, yoga, meditation, ayurvedic principles, mantra, chanting, sound healing, sunlight, rest – and your body will heal itself

Prepare for your Yoga & Meditation Retreat at Sedona Sunlight River Crossing.

Before you embark on your Yoga and Meditation Retreat, take some time to journal on your intended outcome. Identify those elements that you wish to release and what you need to invite in for re-balancing your mind and body for self-awareness and self-improvement.

Write at least three statements for each. State what you are willing to let go of, and write a positive affirmation for personal and Spiritual growth.

Here is an example:

Intention of Letting Go: I release all unhealthy lifestyle

Positive Affirmation of Healing: I now live in self-freedom

As the unhealthy negative patterns become more clear, and as you become more willing to allow self-growth and spiritual expansion, your transformation unfolds in miraculous ways.

Participate in this Retreat and Return Home Happier, Healthier & Stronger!


Ayurvedic Doctor, Yoga Therapist, Tibetan Cranial Practitioner, Spiritual Healer and Guide

Heidi's journey into health and healing began when she was 13 years old. She was diagnosed with severe scoliosis and used yoga to strengthen and heal her body. Her passion for yoga led her to Nepal where she received her Yoga Teacher Certificate from Sushil Bhattacharya in 1998.

Her thirst for meditation brought her to Kriya Yoga, and in 1999 she was initiated into the lineage of Paramahansa Hariharananda and Paramahansa Prajnanananda. Heidi's dedicated practice opened her heart, taught her the power of prayer, invoked the triple Divine qualities of Sound, Light and Vibration, and she shared the benefits of her yoga and meditation practice with many people in Denmark, her home country, helping them to find balance, health and inner peace.

Heidi moved to the United States in 2002 to deepen her learning and application of spiritual healing disciplines. Her teachings were enriched by formal academic training through Naropa University; her Bachelor of Arts Degree (2005) reflecting her focus on Contemplative Psychology, Health and Healing, Sanskrit, and Hindu philosophies, practices and traditions.

Heidi continued her learning in Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy, and in 2012, she completed four years of 3000 hours training as certified Ayurvedic Doctor from Alandi Ashram, and six years of 1175 hours Ayurvedic Practitioner and Yoga Therapist Professional Certification training program at the Rocky Mountain Institute of Yoga and Ayurveda in Boulder, CO.

Heidi is also trained in the rare ancient healing art of Tibetan Cranial by Master Teacher and Lineage Holder Shar Lee Lee, and has sine 2008 helped thousands of people heal from headaches, head trauma and injuries. As a C-IAYT Yoga Therapist, certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists, Heidi Nordlund offers Yoga Therapy with a strong Ayurveda influence. Following the classical tradition of individualized yoga practice, Heidi formulates recommendations based on your particular constitution and imbalances.

Through the last 20 years of yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, Tibetan Cranial and healing practices, Heidi has acquired great knowledge and practical experience and brings an incredible power of divine opening to her healing work.


My work with Heidi have taken me on a healing journey that, until now, I could not have fathomed. Heidi has helped me finally let go of so much of what has been keeping me down. I feel a sense of inner liberation. I am so grateful.

About Sedona Sunlight River Crossing

Incredible rustic home and retreat space in the outskirts of Sedona on beautiful 7 acres of greenery off Page Springs wine trail. This gorgeous home with stunning decor provides a cozy feel with all the comforts of high-end living! With over 3,000 square feet of livable space, the Sedona Sunlight River Ranch creates the ultimate getaway experience and is conveniently located for the adventure seekers of the world.

Wake up to the sounds of nature while you enjoy your favorite morning beverage, stroll down to Oak Creek river and listen to its thrilling sound, sit by the pond with the turtles, and watch the hawks, eagles and blue herrings as they pass over the creek. The backyard patio has incredible views of the sunset.

Sedona is a special place with many energy vortexes to help shift your energy. These vortexes are the intersections of natural electromagnetic earth energy, also known as ley lines. They are spiritual vortexes and they are powerful and transformational energy centers.

Ley lines can intersect in different ways, creating different types of energy vortexes. The three most common types of vortexes are magnetic, electrical and balanced vortexes.

Magnetic vortexes have a feminine energy because the energy flow is very nurturing, soft and welcoming and can assist you in inward activities, such as contemplation, meditation and reflection. Cathedral Rock, the “womb with a view” is a well-known magnetic vortex. It’s also a beautiful natural cathedral and the most photographed red rock formation in Sedona.

An electrical vortex is a masculine vortex. Electrical vortexes tend to be very energizing and are really great for getting the energy moving. Perfect for forward movement, setting intentions and increasing your resolve and stamina, electrical vortexes are somewhat akin to drinking a double espresso. An electrical vortex such as Bell Rock is the right place to do a vigorous yoga flow or to chant or make prayers. Bell Rock will amplify your petitions and send them up and out into the Universe.

Balanced vortexes are simply a mix of electrical and magnetic energy, both feminine and masculine. For example, Airport Mesa is one of the best known balanced Sedona spiritual vortexes. Go to Airport or any balanced vortex to see things from a larger perspective and to gain clarity and a higher vision for your life.

The four best known Sedona spiritual vortexes are Airport Mesa, Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock and Boynton Canyon. Each of these vortexes are well- documented and publicized. In 1980, a local Sedona medium named Page Bryant acknowledged and named some of the vortexes, causing them to gain in popularity as places for spiritual awakening.

The vortexes are not new, however, and Native Americans including the Navajo, Yavapai and Hopi Indians long before recognized recognized the energy and spiritual power of Sedona’s vortexes, honoring the land in this area and using them only for sacred ceremonies.

There are many Sedona spiritual vortexes than just these four. In fact, Sedona is enveloped with vortexes which have been detected and measured through dowsing.

Some of the clues you notice when coming upon a vortex unexpectedly include subtle energy vibrations such as tingling in the hands or buzzing throughout your body, heating up or feeling a rush of energy or a shift in consciousness or perception.

Often, the land will be very beautiful wherever there is a vortex and trees may show twisting trunks and branches, spiraling in the energy field.

“My vibration still feels very good even though I am back in the city. My sincere gratitude for sharing concepts in an easy to understand and profound way: “storylines” and how we can change our story and making a space to do that. This was so inspiring for me.” Deborah C., Denver, CO

“My overall energy has increased, my sleep has improved, my attitude & outlook is much more positive. I just feel so much better” Caryl P., CO

Ayurveda is a wellness practice that originated in India and is about 5,000 years old. The word "Ayurveda" is a combination of two Sanskrit words that mean life (Ayur) and science (Veda), so the literal translation of Ayurveda is "the science of life." Ayurvedic medicine seeks to create a healthy strong body through a series of diet, exercise and lifestyle practices, including sleep and mindful living.

Ayurvedic diet incorporates many different practices into your eating routine. These practices help you to benefit from the different qualities of food.

One of the primary characteristics of an Ayurvedic diet is that you eat according to your dominant constitutional type or dosha. You can think of your dosha as your most prominent energy.

There are three different Ayurvedic doshas that derive from five different elements: space, air, fire, water, and earth. Each element provides different qualities or attributes.

Vata (space and air): Attributes include dry, light, cold, mobile and rough.
Pitta (fire and water): Attributes include sharp, hot and liquid.
Kapha (earth and water): Attributes include moist, heavy, soft and static.
