Seven Springs has five residential yurts on site, each fully furnished with beds, tables, electrical outlets, and dressers. If you've never slept in round walls, this is a must-try! There are also several ideal camping spots along the creek, near to the luxurious community kitchen and bathrooms with flush toilets and hot showers. Food is prepared and eaten without walls.

The classroom space is in a 24 feet octagonal retrofitted and recycled yurt - the perfect place to practice and learn. A labyrinth lotus lovingly painted on the floor invites walking meditation and a well-stocked library invites cozy study. When nature calls, wander down the hollow where you’ll find the 35 feet traditional 7-course labyrinth nestled under an ancient elm within a natural bowl - a perfect place for contemplation and visioning.

Program

Certification

The course/hours count as Continuing Education hours for Registered Yoga Teachers only.

In addition to the core curriculum of yoga philosophy, energetic principles, and yoga asana (alignment, anatomy, and teaching), you will explore spiritual traditions from the South American Andean Quechua, Central American Mayan, and North American Cherokee and Lakota traditions. To connect with the land surrounding Seven Springs, you will collaborate with local healers from the Cherokee nation and traditional Appalachian naturopathy for offerings that include a traditional sweat lodge ceremony. The sacred stillness of this ancient mountain range is a deeply nurturing place to become aware of the divine reflection within yourself.

In the process of co-creating and expertly facilitating the group space, Kula Collective supports open sharing of passions and tools and encourage participants to grow into their role as facilitators and space holders. Drawing on the natural serenity of this idyllic valley, cleansed by the seven sacred springs of the property, and nourished by the abundance that surrounds, this training offers a space for deep and purposeful growth. With such creative freedom, the graduates leave with a strong momentum to incorporate advanced yogic principles in all aspects of daily life, feeling deeply inspired and clear in how to share their essence and live their dharma

Location

Seven Springs is a holistic retreat center, nestled in the bio-diverse foothills of the smoky mountains of Tennessee on 126 acres of mostly forested hills. With seven natural springs and an abundance of native species, the natural vibrancy of this land is complemented by the integration of offerings with wisdom and teachers from the local Cherokee traditions.

Seven Springs is named after the abundance of fresh water on this land, with a spring dedicated to each chakra, giving potency to the fresh water that flows from within the earth. Cleansing in this water is a powerful experience that reaches far beyond just the physical body.

Standing 16 feet tall and 28 foot diameter, the Seven Springs yoga shala is open to the fresh mountain air, supported by mighty cedars, sustainably felled in the surrounding forest. On a hill near to the shala sits the open-air massage pavilion. Ceremony is held under the stars around the special fire circle.
