Program Basics

Going Deeper in Your Practice, Developing Your Ability to Coach

The familiar guiding principles which transport us through our yoga practice can be used outside of the studio to empower, support and encourage students. On the mat, we practice intention, awareness, compassion and acceptance.

Yoga life coaching is a growing practice and one that is being utilized to help grow as an individual or with a group.

Yoga2Life Coach Training will help you apply these principles in conversations with others and during personal dialog with yourself to move through transitions and grow. Coach Training Alliance offers a yoga coaching program for you to learn so you can help teach the skills and techniques to others and get them through blocks, create new pathways and establish on-going collaborative partnerships.

Program Overview

Coach Training Alliance Yoga2Life Coaching Program takes you on a journey as a guide wherein you will be elevated through the marriage of the ancient knowledge of yoga with the latest in neuroscience.

We learn yoga by practicing the poses, meditating and actively engaging in our thoughts. In the same way, yoga coaching does not take place in a box like a classroom or in a hotel conference room. The Yoga2Life Coaching program is a hands on, highly experiential learning platform. This class is a transformative experience. Throughout your training you will actively practice and coach. Classes are conducted via live conference call. Each week you will discuss new material, practice it in class and then incorporate it into your way of being. For 12 weeks, you will engage on the phone for 1.5 hours each week to experience sage, kind and challenging teaching, nestled within a community of other lifelong learners. Classes are taught in an intimate setting, with a maximum of 12 students, to allow for individual attention, connection with class peers and an environment of focused learning. Yoga2Life Coach training creates a personal practice to develop you as a confident and competent guide.

If you miss a class (or part of a class) recordings are available to participants only, however, requirements for certification and graduation stipulate that participants miss no more than two total classes.

In addition to the live yoga coaching, you will reference the course material to fuel your experience, inspire your personal growth and strengthen your coaching skills. Become a Yoga Life Coach in just 12 weeks.
