Anahata Yoga Teacher Certification (Yoga)
Asian Bio-energetic certification (Healing Therapist)
IRI Certified iRest Teacher® (Nidra Yoga)
Julie Seibt has developed over the years a rich background of certifications and experience in yoga. She studied mindfulness under Steven Smith and Michele McDonald, teaching movement classes to support a meditation practice at their Vipassana Retreats in Thailand and Hawaii since 2010. As an Asian bio-energetic therapist, master Reiki teacher, and Thai massage therapist, Julie brings a holistic, compassionate, and mindful approach to well being.
Steven spends his time teaching Vipassana and the Divine Abodes (loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity) meditation retreats around the world and assisting Burmese refugee communities along the Thai-Burma border. His long term vision for preserving the Dhamma is culminating in the beginnings of the Hawai'i Insight Meditation Center (HIMC) on the Big Island of Hawai’i’s remote North Kohala coast.
Jake Davis began practicing at the age of 14 with Steven Smith and Michele McDonald and went on to spend nearly a decade practicing, studying, working as an interpreter, and training as a monk under the eminent meditation masters Sayadaw U Pandita and Sayadaw U Lakkhana of Burma. He brings together a deep experiential understanding of Buddhist practice with an intellectual training including the study of the Pāli texts, a Ph.D. in Philosophy and Cognitive Science, and ongoing research on meditation at Brown University.

I am grateful for the mindful movement because it is such a great way to be in the body.

After my 25-year marriage ended, I courageously did many things to heal. The meditation, iRest and mindful movement at this retreat left me feeling centred with strength inside and out and able to integrate powerfully into to my new life.

I really loved the retreat. Julie's way of teaching has helped me to start on my journey to a meditation practice. The yoga was fabulous too. I will take a lot away with me. Thank you!
Mark H Hawaii
The teaching of underlying function in movement is extraordinarily helpful. Understanding how muscles and joints move is so much more helpful than just trying to copy picture perfect asana. Thank you!

I have complex PTSD and found the yoga retreat to be extremely helpful, grounding and calming. I enjoyed every moment. Julie's compassion and understanding of PTSD was exceptional.

In this retreat you get everything you are looking for:
Beautiful nature (jungle and sweet-water lake)
A wonderful, wise, yoga teacher
The best food you could ask for
Wonderful yoga deck in the middle of the lake
Silence times of no speaking (with jungle sounds) and fun times with nice people.
I filled up my empty tank!

For me, it was a great introduction to yoga and meditation. It helped me discover many things about myself and how to cope with the 'real world'. Loved the food, the staff are amazing and I had the best massage ever!

Julie's yoga cultivates loving-kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity. The jungle and fellow students complete the embrace. I was able to slow down and be present.

The New Years Retreat in Southern Thailand was the best retreat I have attended in forty years (and I have been at many!). Not only was the setting fantastic but the facilities were comfortable, clean, safe, beautiful. The teachers were, of course, superb - Steve, Jake and Julie make a lovely team. It was relaxed, full and deep. I would recommend to anyone this site for a retreat. You will be amazed and want to go every year, just like me!

I highly recommend the Lake Retreat which I attended over the New Year's holiday [similar to the summer retreat]. It was a re-set for me to regain 'calm abiding'. The setting is beautifully serene. The teachers are superior with deep knowledge & a willingness to guide us. The food, & the local staff are excellent. I will definitely return.
