For yoga teachers, therapists and budding healers

May 27-30, 2016 - Seven Arrows, Locust, NJ

Taught by Summer Quashie & Julianna Takacs

I felt taken care of the entire time. Your preparation and years of study were so evident in the flow of the weekend and the delivery of information. I feel lucky to have been present for the first edition of this training, and I believe it was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
— Level 1 Participant

Were you drawn to teaching yoga as a way of helping others in a deep, meaningful way?

Do you believe in the capacity to transform and heal through your very being?

As you teach more, do you sense a growing responsibility to honestly take care of yourself (you know, to truly practice what you preach)?

Do you wish to deepen your understanding of energy and intuition as tools for transformation?


Every year it seems society as a whole is embracing a more natural, holistic approach to physical and mental well-being. It’s an exciting time of immense possibility.  There are not only more people practicing yoga than ever before, but more teachers, and we hope, more people wishing to understand the more subtle, powerful aspects of energy and healing.

We will be spending 3 full days, for Level 1, in a focused, beautiful retreat setting exploring and building confidence in the Subtle Arts of Healing. In this training we will focus on three main aspects: Self Care, Healing Tools and Widening the Circle:
