The familiar guiding principles which take us through our yoga practice can be effectively used outside the studio to empower, support and encourage others. You can also use this training to build a career as a Yoga Coach.

These skills can be used in your:

  • Personal Life - understand how to actively support others
  • Professional Life - build competency, motivate employees and engage co-workers
  • Non-Profit or Volunteer Work - build skills that allow you to contribute to groups and organizations in a meaningful way
  • Expand Your Career - become a professional coach and increase your income

In 12 rewarding and fulfilling weeks you will become a Certified Core Coach and learn how to guide people through key transitions and personal breakthroughs. Position yourself to create growth and alignment in your personal life and support others as they strive towards their highest and most authentic selves.

Classes are conducted via live-teleclass and are highly interactive. You will learn solid and effective core coaching skills and practice newly developed coaching strategies. Learn how to choreograph conversations that make on-going collaborative partnership possible. As a core coach, you will develop your ability to help clients, coworkers, friends and family members begin:

  • Doing more than they would on their own
  • Taking themselves more seriously
  • Creating momentum and consistency
  • Taking more effective and focused actions
  • Becoming more balanced and fulfilled

Like yoga, coaching is a heartfelt path aligned with personal growth, self-inquiry, community and lifting others. Its recent mainstream acceptance and application has increased rapidly, as people have witnessed the immense value it can provide. The coaching relationship is one fundamentally based on trust, clear intention and the opportunity to make the most out of the blessings life affords. The unique set of skills that this course offers will open the window into an expansive world of possible applications.

As a yogi (student or teacher) you already know how to support individual and collective consciousness.  Yoga2Life will develop your intuitive ability to guide yourself and your new clients through personal and professional challenges. Do you want to help others tap into their own internal wisdom and achieve their goals?

You may call upon your evolved abilities during interactions with co-workers, clients, family members, friendships or you may decide to pursue a stand-alone career as a coach. Because of the strong parallels which both coaching and yoga share, these skills will also enhance your yoga experience as a student and teacher.

Developed specifically to be integrated into the practice and leadership role of the yogi, this offering of Core Coaching for Effective Change™ is based on the successful training and launching of thousands of coaching careers over the last decade by ICF Approved Coach Training Alliance. You will learn incredible amounts about the process of human change, the neuroscience behind change in the human experience and specific skills to help others as they grow their lives and you grow your practice.

The Five Major Sections of Your Training

We will focus on five major areas to help you integrate existing experience and skills with your evolving expertise as a yogi and Mentor Coach. They are aligned in an intelligent, sequential order which will accelerate your progress.
