Founders, Sumer & Zinzi, met as yoga teachers in 2021 before quickly creating a friendship inspired by their shared passion to transform the wellbeing industry into one that is inclusive and safe for all. They are driven to make sure that clients feel safe to engage in holistic services whilst ensuring practitioners have access to community, training and opportunities.
After being diagnosed with PTSD in 2020, Summer spent 2 years exploring how a holistic approach to care can support us when we can't find the words to explain how we feel in mind and body. Zinzi has been supporting clients through yoga, massage therapy and most recently training as a counsellor for the last 7 years. When the two met, they spent many months unpicking how a lack of awareness and affordable access to training is harming the industry impacting clients and practitioners.
Since then, Ark was created and has been providing a bite sized, affordable approach to training & development for all wellbeing practitioners. Specialising in making a trauma-aware approach the standard approach, Ark are now building a network of approved training schools whilst preparing to connect their community to clients from 1-2-1, corporates, and retreats to community schemes, social causes and passion projects.
