There are so many great benefits that living holistically can provide for people.

Clinical studies have proven that yoga can aid in strengthening the immune system, help with focus, lower stress, increase flexibility and encourage a positive mindset. So, grab your mat and join us for the Leap Year Yoga Challenge!

The Leap Year Yoga Challenge provides an opportunity for yogis to challenge themselves to complete 108 sun salutations.  The event starts with guided meditative walk. Participants will then roll out their mat & practice Sun Salutations together while the participating yoga studios teachers announce the flow of poses. After, Yogis will enjoy lunch, listen to music, and meet new like-minded people in a relaxed non-judgmental environment.

Holistic Education Foundation is seeking naturally minded holistic vendors to populate our “Leap Year Yoga Challenge” – a marketplace that includes artists, healers, holistic practitioners, and other creatives providing naturally-minded goods and services to attendees.

Our Story

Our Story

Holistic Education Foundation was founded in 2017 by Catherine O’Connor. The inspiration came from yearning for a community of naturally minded individuals. Joining Catherine on the Board of Directors was Andrea Pearson & Shara Maso. The hope was to connect the community with wellness professionals & build mutually beneficial relationships.

The first Chapter of HEF launched March 2018 in Martin County, Florida. The Chapter held a free meeting once per month. Each month had a new topic that related to holistic health, and HEF hosted a guest speaker that specialized in that field.  By August 2018, HEF placed their first co-op order & started to buy as a group, from a variety of holistically minded vendors.

 In January 2019, HEF became a national organization, when they launched a Chapter in New York with Marie Nauman and Lety Algeria leading the Suffolk County Chapter. Additionally,  HEF launched a Chapter in West Palm Beach, Florida.
