Mind-Body Skills Group for Coaches

 

Learn Mind-Body Skills For Self-Care That You Can Integrate Into Your Coaching Practice

Mind-body skills groups are educational, supportive groups that offer participants an opportunity to learn self-care strategies and experience evidence-based techniques to enhance health and well-being.

In this mind-body skills group for coaches, coaches will learn and practice experiential and integrative mind-body techniques, including meditation, guided imagery, autogenic training, breath work, awareness through movement, and mindful eating in a supportive environment that nourishes self-awareness and enhances active listening skills. 

Participants share and connect with each other, creating a positive learning environment that supports individual and collective well-being. 

This group series is expanded upon and based on the work of Dr. James Gordon, the founder of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine, who is world-renowned for his use of self-awareness, self-care, and group support for healing.

This course is approved for 14 CE credits by the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC) and 17 CE credits through the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
