Things are happening in Ajo, and you can feel it.

It is no surprise that Ajo has attracted so many seeking a healthy, peaceful quality of life. Among those drawn to the energy of the Sonoran Desert area are holistic practitioners and healers who have found the environment ideal for offering their work to those seeking a more natural lifestyle.

Ajo is the place to come to benefit from the expertise of incredible practitioners, working together to offer a collection of established and new modalities and programs to enhance your well-being. Are you looking for more energy, clarity, peace and inner power? We invite you to join us for a special weekend of renewal, combining chakra yoga and crystal bowl sound vibration – the Sonoran Chakra Yoga Retreat, October 14, 15, 16. The mother-daughter team of sound pioneer Jovita Wallace and yoga instructor Morgana Wallace Cooper created this signature program.

A powerful experience is promised to release, rebalance and expand your quantum body. Re-aligning the energy of the mind-body-spirit dimensions is necessary for a sense of wellbeing and wholeness on an organic cellular level. The unique combination of chakra balancing and yoga will empower participants to achieve maximum results.

“This will be a transforming experience for any who attends. I attended one class of this type taught by Morgana Wallace Cooper and Jovita Wallace and felt amazing! Tension literally melted away and I had a new sense of clarity within. Great experience! “, Susan Fonseca, owner bloom holistic center.

Your three-day retreat stay will be enhanced by the beauty and comfort of the new inn and conference center in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, surrounded by millions of acres of unspoiled open wilderness.

The Sonoran Desert Conference Center offers one-of-a-kind hospitality that engages visitors in the rich culture of the Southwest. Located in the heart of the spectacular Sonoran Desert on the beautifully restored historic Curley School campus, you are only a short walk to the town’s historic, Spanish-style plaza. You will encounter the unique character of Southern Arizona, where Mexican, Tohono O’odham and American cultures create a blend that is authentically Ajo.

“The rooms and grounds are immaculate, the staff is extremely friendly, helpful, and the surrounding desert is absolutely beautiful,” says recent guest, Jane of New York City.

Here is more you need to know about The Sonoran Chakra Yoga Retreat. The program is designed to strengthen, transform and align the energy fields – your chakra system. The core series will focus on the physical body, the transformational body and the causal body, or mind- body- spirit. Your body is like an orchestra. Every player – every organ and bodily system – needs to vibrate at its highest frequency.

Morgana believes, “These comprehensive sessions have been created to educate and allow for open dialogue about the energy centers of the body. By practicing movement and experiencing sound vibration therapy, you will access, stimulate, and calm these energetic centers and integrate this knowledge.”

The retreat is perfect for those new to yoga or for experienced yogis looking to connect their practice with chakra work and meditation.
