As a core class, S-T-R-E-T-C-H! is required for any level of credentialing or certification through Mindfulness Coaching School. This class is ICF approved for CCEs and is part of our Approved Coaching Specific Training Program (ACTP).
*Also offered in an Intensive model.
If you have the passion, time and energy to make a commitment to a new challenge, a 6 week STRETCH Intensive might be exactly what you are looking for.
This class provides the same content and opportunities as our regular 12-week STRETCH, exploring who and how you will be in the exciting world of coaching. To take advantage of the richness of this class make sure you can commit significant blocks of time for reading, reflection and connecting with other students, between the twice weekly classes.
Intensives aren’t for everyone, but this one might be perfect for you!
What Students Are Saying
S-T-R-E-T-C-H! pushed me in the coaching practice. I gained confidence and experience in coaching, while building strong connections with my classmates throughout the course.
S-T-R-E-T-C-H! Becoming The Incredible Coach You Truly Are is an amazing mindfulness coaching class that blew the doors open on coaching practices. A fresh, clean breeze blew in that allowed me to bring my whole self newly to coaching. As an experienced coach, I benefited greatly and I know I will use the skills and practices I learned for years to come.
STRETCH does just that…it stretches your understanding of what a coach is/does, it stretches your thoughts and insights about yourself and your journey and it stretches your bonds with your classmates to learn from their collective experiences and knowledge. This was an enlightening and thoroughly enjoyable class that really pushed you to think from a variety of perspectives and to also really think about who you are, the story you tell and why. I am sad it is over.
“Stretch” is a good name for this course. It stretched us all to reach beyond what we thought we knew, dig deeply to experience those paths that we will be coaching on, and stay open and curious about everything.
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!
The course [S-T-R-E-T-C-H!] allowed me to ‘stretch’ my ability to practice what I preach. Philip was very competent and helpful to all of us. It was a great experience. Thank you Ann-Marie, Philip, and Brittany!
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.
The S-T-R-E-T-C-H! course was an amazing experience and it allowed me to grow (and stretch) as a new coach!
Great starting point for anyone who would like to see how coaching works and how to stretch yourself to achieve more!
This class will give you a coaching community in just a few short months. I now feel that I have colleagues and a support system that I can reach out to in times of need. So grateful for having the chance to know these remarkable individuals.
