This course [Skillful Means] helped me to understand and practice with the specific skills in coaching. It definitely equipped me to be a better coach.
S-T-R-E-T-C-H! Becoming The Incredible Coach You Truly Are presented new and experienced coaches the opportunity to learn, apply and refine life-changing skills to better the lives of people. I learned new mindfulness applications that I could immediately apply in my life and roles as a leadership coach and adult educator. I really enjoyed the interaction, meeting new friends, and the freedom of expression. Aloha and mahalo MCS!
The Body Electric teaches important skills for being present and grounded as a coach that will help students trust their intuition and make deeper connections with their clients.
I highly recommend this class [Right Speech]. It’s an in-depth study into the forms of communication we engage in with ourselves and others!
Ann-Marie is a master of opening people’s minds to seeing the benefits of the use of positive language to better deal with real life situations at work and at home.
The course brought me from being very anxious about the business aspect of coaching to gaining the confidence necessary to take care of this very important aspect of a coaching business. I have gained the necessary skills, made contacts with people who could help me with certain aspects of setting up my business and I even caught a glimpse of the possibility that business part can be fun and a great way for learning new skills. So inner business alchemy definitely happened for me, for which I am feeling extremely grateful to my instructor and all my classmates.
Working with Ann-Marie McKelvey is a transforming experience! She has coached me through different aspects of Life, from launching a successful coaching career to building my own wellness internally. Ann-Marie has gifts that she shares with those around her to help them be their best possible selves and reach their goals. She does this through listening deeply, asking the right questions and role modeling at the same time! I feel so blessed to have her as my coach!
This course [The Art of Engaged Mindfulness] was an invitation to revisit my meditation practice and also to see how I can implement such a key tool with my own clients.
S-T-R-E-T-C-H! Becoming The Incredible Coach You Truly Are was amazing; a must do class for anyone wanting to become a coach or anyone who is already a coach and needs to feel refreshed and revitalized by the possibilities of coaching and the difference the practice can make. I would thoroughly recommend this course, it is not for the fainthearted, you need to be all in – but it’s hard not to be when it’s delivered with such passion and commitment by Ann-Marie, and all your colleagues and peers are so invested. A total life experience, eye opening, breath taking and consciousness deepening. This is a course I will come back to again and repeat!
Writing, Creativity and the Mindful Coach takes each of these key components and weaves them together to create an effective tool for coaching. It allows both coach and client different ways to dive deeper into the coaching agenda and help the client uncover thoughts/feelings that might be illusive in a safe way.

My outer life is a reflection of my inner life. Excerpt from Ann-Marie’s “My Commitment Credo”
My outer life is a reflection of my inner life.
Each time she exhales her short screech into the dark night I exhale all that is not needed. She is a balm spreading over this night of unreined thoughts.
She connects me to the dark skies as they lighten in the east reminding me the sun will rise yet again over the Sangre de Cristos of my mind.
…soften your gaze and add a good dose of curiosity to your vision.
Taking a deep breath…what do you see?
The Mindfulness Coaching School stands in solidarity with our Black, Latino and Indigenous communities.
The challenge of these days requires us to explore our own way of being as educators and as a community. We re-commit ourselves to learning, teaching and acting as more intentional allies.
