Welcome to the Center for Well-Being Education's Yoga and Well-Being Coach Training Program
Now you can become a Board-Certified Yoga and Well-Being Coach -- from anywhere!
Join me for this exciting and inspiring all-new pogram, approved as an official health and wellness coach training program by the International Consortium for Health and Wellness Coaching (ICHWC). You'll learn how to practice yoga and well-being coaching in our "East meets West" program, AND earn eligibility to take ICHWC's National Board Certification exam in Health and Wellness Coaching (to earn your NBC-HWC credential).
In Phase 1 (8 live training hours + 10 hours self-paced study):
You'll begin the program with customized coaching, so you can experience the power of yoga and well-being coaching as the client. Whether you join us for our weekly online live format (Fall 2018) or our 5-day Immersion Coach Training Retreat (Spring 2019), Dr. Carmack will begin your coach training journey by using both talk-based and movement-based coaching strategies to coach you and other trainees using her Well-Being Ultimatum framework -- to give you the client's experience of coaching AND to help you to thrive. Using a combination of live coaching (during class sessions) and online practices (that you can study with at your own pace), she will coach you through the process of developing your own personal strategy for thriving in the physical, financial, social, mental, purpose and emotional dimensions of YOUR well-being. In this first phase, you'll also set the foundation for your success as a coach by learning how to set healthy coach-client boundaries, and how the latest research in the science of compassion can help you to prevent burnout and compassion fatigue -- through the power of self-care and self-compassion practices. After setting this strong foundation for your well-being, you'll be ready to move on to phase 2.
In Phase 2 (22 live training hours + 10 hours self-paced study):
You'll learn how to practice as a Yoga and Well-Being Coach within health and wellness coaching practice standards set by ICHWC. Whether or not you have a talk-based or movement-based coaching background, you'll love learning how to blend these coaching practices to create empowering experiences for your coaching clients (in both professional and personal settings). Dr. Carmack will take you behind-the-scenes into her "5-star" frameworks for coaching found in her books -- Well-Being Ultimatum (2015) and Genius Breaks (2017) -- and share with you valuable "lessons learned" from her 26-year career in yoga and well-being coaching, program-development, and teacher training as well as her doctoral research in the sciences of interpersonal communication and well-being. You'll learn how to apply her innovative coaching frameworks and evidence-informed coaching techniques to develop your own unique coaching style, and to successfully inspire, motivate, and mentor your clients as a Yoga and Well-Being Coach. You'll also learn best practice guidelines in health and wellness coaching set by the ICHWC, so you can practice within these guidelines and be well prepared to the National Board exam in Health and Wellness Coaching and earn your NBC-HWC credential (optional)*. You'll conclude phase 2 with plenty of case studies and coaching practice with fellow coach trainees in the program, and receive inspiring live feedback in our supportive coaching class community -- so you'll be empowered to be the best coach you can be.
Upon successful completion of this 50 hour program (30 live training hours + 20 hours self-paced study):
- You'll receive your Yoga and Well-Being Coach Certificate from the Center for Well-Being Education
- You'll be recognized as a pioneer in both the Yoga and Well-Being fields for your ability to help your clients to live a thriving lifestyle
- You'll know how to blend talk-based and movement-based coaching techniques, to support your clients in their well-being needs
- You'll understand how to prevent burnout and compassion fatigue with self-care, self-compassion and boundary-setting practices
- You'll receive continuing education credits (if applicable). We offer Yoga Alliance CEC's for current Yoga Alliance teachers (RYT's) as well as CEC's for other healthcare, fitness and wellness professionals -- please inquire for details.
