I graduated from Kripalu, excited to share Ayurveda with my clients. Once I began working with clients, I noticed that clients weren't always integrating my suggestions. That's fine, not everything is for everyone, but I thought:
There must be a better way to help clients incorporate lasting behavioral change.
What we really want for our clients is for them to be happier and healthier. Integrating lasting behavioral change is challenging, especially for many clients for whom Ayurveda is new. Coaching techniques have helped me to serve my clients more effectively.
I'm a Wellcoaches Certified Health Coach. I've also developed an online course that I instruct at Indiana University called "Applied Wellness Coaching and Motivational Interviewing," teaching undergraduates a variety of coaching skills.
I'm excited to share effective strategies for improving client interactions and successes by applying coaching strategies to Ayurveda consultations. The techniques you learn can help improve client interactions and compliance.
This introductory Ayurveda Coaching Course is designed to give you enough to get started through summaries of useful coaching concepts and practice of techniques. For those pittas interested in more – don’t worry, I’ll offer extra resources for further study and there will be a longer more in depth course offered next year.
Evolve your practice - Applying concepts of positive psychology and coaching to help your Ayurveda clients.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
Coaching Techniques will be taught with Ayurveda specific scenarios.
Weekly live 90-min tele-seminars (on the phone) with coaching practice sessions during each class - you get to practice your skills immediately! Course content will be delivered online (readings, video, etc...).
*It is essential that you have a reliable phone connection to participate in the course - you will be practicing techniques with partners during much of the classes and there is nothing worse than having a partner who can't practice because you can't hear them or their connection keeps breaking up. If you are an international student, please contact me before signing up.
What do you mean, practice techniques?
Each week you will be practicing the techniques we learn during class with a partner. Do you have to participate? Yes! This is a safe, non-judgemental space in which to practice and interact with classmates - to learn and grow.
What equipment do I need to have to participate?
How much time will this take each week?
Will I need to buy a book or anything else?
Nope. Everything is included. No books.
There will be weekly resources and homework - some required ( 1 hour per week), some optional.
