Breanna F. Helfert, BA, MPH & CYT – Lead Retreat Coordinator
Breanna is thrilled to serve 4+ years as SpiritQuest’s Lead Retreat Coordinator and now adding Sedona Vortex Adventures to her role. She combines her administrative experience along with yoga background, as well as spiritual training and wisdom. Before joining the company, Breanna had a 10-year career in Health Administration upon completion of her Master’s degree in Public Health from UC Berkeley. Before returning for her MPH, Breanna obtained a B.A. in Politics from New York University. As a California native, she worked for Kaiser Permanente, United Healthcare, Aetna US Healthcare and Deloitte and Touche as a Healthcare Consultant. After contributing her business acumen and intellect to the healthcare arena, her desire to work directly with individuals prompted her to become a certified Yoga Instructor, her long-time passion. She first joined the SpiritQuest Team in 2010 as a dedicated private Yoga Instructor, which she still thoroughly enjoys. So, when not in the SpiritQuest Office, she may be leading a private Yoga session in the transformation Room or tipi, or taking clients out for an amazing red rock Yoga Hike.
In addition to Yoga, Breanna also has extensive Vipassana meditation training as taught by S.N. Goenka completing her first 10-day silent course at the age of 19.

She is deeply grateful for the opportunity to coordinate retreats with Katherine’s awesome leadership as well as the amazing team of Practitioners.
