The frequency of course meetings makes each of these programs as close to an immersion program as possible without actually removing you from your daily life. Each course will allow you to continue with your daily life and give you the opportunities to apply your new knowledge to everyday situations.
SEASONS: THE SUGI WAY – Next program begins January 21, 2018
Simply put, most of us live a life filled with stress that negatively impacts our daily experience in a variety of ways. Being stressed out can result in feeling spiritually empty and filled with self-doubt.
Seasons: The Sugi Way gives students a practical experience of how to live in sync with the seasons of the year. As we develop this ability, stress-related symptoms are reduced and joyfulness returns.
The process of getting in sync with the natural rhythms of life is intuitive and practical at the same time. In this program, simple tools help us transform our old patterns of behavior; these tools are practical and easy to apply during a busy day.
“I am so grateful for this amazing experience. I have grown and learned so much in the past year. I’ve been able to heal wounds that I’ve carried with me for decades and become a more peaceful and whole human being.” Lauren Barraco

- Chinese Five Elements Theory
- Spiritual Journeys
- Body Symbolism
- Sound Healing
- Chakra Balancing
- Healing Foods

…. and more!
One of the foundational elements of the Seasons program is learning to recognize the familial and societal influences that we have unconsciously adopted. Experiential processes are used during the training to break free from these habitual patterns and open up a new world view.
The Sugi Way perspective teaches you how to succeed immediately, through inner listening, movement skills and simple, healthy habits. By deepening awareness of body, mind and soul, you will learn to live with self-acceptance, compassion and balance.
The Seasons Training Program consists of 12 group meetings and 12 private sessions with Amy. The adoption of daily practices is an inherent part of this program.

Here are some comments from past students:
“Over the last nine months I have become more resilient, more attuned to my compassion for myself, more confident in my abilities to navigate challenging life events and less defensive. I am more likely to make healthy food, beverage and movement choices.” Amy Sommer
“I have noticed unhealthy patterns within my immediate family structure and moved forward with change.
I have noticed how my attitudes and conditioning are affecting my relationships with my daughter and husband. [Overcoming habitual] anger and fear, I have learned to be more present and joyous in my daily life.
My relationship with food and the seasons (changes) has impacted how I view myself and my community. I feel more in control, with more choices and empowered. I feel more grounded and recover from unpleasant experiences more quickly.” Kelly Meek
“I am more aware of the seasons’ changes and being okay with that. It is okay for me to change as long as I am in peace. Plants and animals don’t strain; they go with the flow without judgment.” Adrianne Roe
“I have become more willing to be vulnerable in the group and trusting that I am really okay. I am noticing my boundaries more and beginning to say ‘no’ or beginning to make choices that serve me and not someone else. It’s easier for me to communicate feelings about family and identity, painful things. I have learned how many things I keep to myself.” Lisa Craven

SUGI YOGA – 300 hour program
Sugi Yoga® is designed to offer a new approach to yoga, melding traditional hatha yoga with SugiTouch™. Students are provided the opportunity to learn practical knowledge about movement and energy while building their confidence and skills for personal knowledge and practice.
Sugi Yoga does not insist on the perfect execution of yoga postures, but is concerned with how one approaches them – seeing the postures as a web of interconnected movements and understanding the common aspects between them. This understanding gives the teacher and the students more ways to benefit from yoga. During the training, you’ll progress mindfully from simple to sophisticated concepts, postures and exercises, choosing your own pathway for growth.
Over time, you will experience a wider range of movement and abilities, gain strength, increase mobility and improve endurance. This will lead to expanded self-awareness that will transform and inspire your life and make you a great yoga teacher.
Graduates may apply for teacher certification upon completion of the training.
Sugi Yoga was developed by Ofer Erez by combining his traditional training in Sivananda yoga with the vast wealth of knowledge he gained in other forms of education.
