S-T-R-E-T-C-H Your Potential Cognitively and Experientially

S-T-R-E-T-C-H! is an interactive opportunity for participants to deepen their personal journey and skill development for coaching. This committed community of Life Long Learners and Growth Mindsetters grow together throughout the 12 weeks.

Through practice and embodying the many coaching exercises and applications, you will create your own blueprint and toolbox to achieve personal and professional goals. You will also explore coaching skills, ICF Core Competencies and Ethics along with tools to launch your business practice.

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.

To qualify for CCEs, CEUs and/or Class Credits toward Credentialing
You MUST attend 80% of the required, live class contact hours and complete a Class Evaluation Questionnaire in order to receive credit and/or CCEs or CEUs for the class. Students will be asked to indicate presence at the start and close of each class. Make-ups are not possible. We cannot provide CCEs, CEUs or a Certificate of Completion to anyone who does not attend the minimum number of class hours required.

Note Regarding State Boards
Ann-Marie is a CEU Provider through the state of New Mexico. It has been our experience that most state boards accept CEUs from the New Mexico Counseling and Therapy Practice Board. It is up to the individual participant to verify acceptance with their state board.
