S-T-R-E-T-C-H! Becoming the Incredible Coach You Truly Are
Dates: Wednesdays, September 7 – November 23, 2022
Time: 8:00-10:00am Mountain Time
I fell in love with somatic coaching. I never thought I could actually talk to my body. A completely new world opened up for me personally, as I am sure will be the case also for my clients. I now fully understand as I have experienced it that somatic coaching is the only really holistic way to get to core of the challenges and to the goals that are completely aligned with ourselves.
I have never thought of myself a leader. The designation just didn’t resonate, and I thought this class [If Steve Jobs Were Your Coach: Leadership Skills to Thrive] might be an odd fit for me. This class helped me rethink what leadership means to me. I learned that leadership qualities are powerful everyday tools that I can call on to generate energy and shift perspective in any life circumstance! I came away from this course with an array of creative strategies and lenses to choose from, as I meet challenges in my own life and as I work with coaching clients facing their own challenges.
Skillful Means was a great course for learning the coaching skills for the first time or brushing up on the skills you’ve been using in your practice for a while. I enjoyed watching Ann-Marie demonstrate the coaching skills through practice sessions in class. Would definitely recommend to anyone no matter where they are in their coaching career.
I had a superb experience in this class [Where Mind Goes, Qi Goes: Somatic Coaching with Qigong]. There is a universe to be explored when it comes to understanding somatic work. I just got more and more curious.
I loved the experiential nature of this class (The Dynamic Trio). I know that the applications being taught can help someone experience powerful breakthroughs… because I experienced powerful breakthroughs!
Someone said “coaching starts from the 1st breath” and I truly experienced it during this class (Becoming A Mindfulness & Wellness Coach: You at Your Best). Ann-Marie’s authenticity, vivid approach and dancing in the moment impressed me very much. I can sense her true love and compassion through each discourse. Her true coaching presence was not only reflected by the one-on-one coaching demonstrations, but also through each moment… A living example of a master coach.
NVC is an incredible tool to utilize for my coaching practice but also to enhance and enjoy more fully my life and the one of the people around me. Srdjan is an incredible human being and a teacher. His gift is to be able to share his knowledge with authenticity and vulnerability. He is embodying NVC and he inspired me deeply. THANK YOU Read more
Right Speech with Meg Hess is a wonderful class. I am grateful for the many communication tools I learned through the course. Meg, as an instructor, brings uplifting energy to the class, keeping the discussions engaging and memorable.
Phil Joudrey is an amazing teacher. He will take you places in this course that you didn’t know you could go. And you will be supported and encouraged every step of the way while coming to understand some fundamental aspects of yourself as a coach.
Business Alchemy helped me grow into and clarify my purpose in coaching. I was able to create the story of me that brought me to where I am and my passion to inspire others on their journey. Ann-Marie’s guidance through understanding service marketing was heartening, powerful and inspiring. Sarah’s encouragement and gentle way of pulling the essence of us to the surface was spectacular! Thank you both, as well as my fellow students, for an incredible experience! And I’m getting clients!
