Welcome Anna Welle as our newest Yoga Health Coaching Coach of the Month! Anna comes from an Ayurvedic background: she studied with the Kerala Academy to become an Ayurvedic Practitioner, and through her education had the opportunity to intern at an Ayurvedic hospital in Kerala, India, as well as Ayurvedagram in Bangalore, India focusing on panchakarma therapies. While her education led her deep into the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, she found that she wasn’t prepared to actually create a business as an Ayurvedic practitioner until she went through her Yoga Health Coaching certification.
Tune in to learn about how Anna gained practical skills and knowledge to help people create deep and lasting change in their lives through the tools provided in Yoga Health Coaching, and how anyone can use these tools on their path of personal evolution.
What you’ll get out of tuning in
- How to use small, incremental improvements as a technique for behavioral change
- Why group behavior change is more effective than striving to change on your own
- What you need to know about dinacharya and its effects on health
- 2:00 – Often, holistic health programs provide a wide array of knowledge about healing traditions and pathophysiology, but don’t teach the practical application of business for after a certification is acquired. Yoga Health Coaching fills that gap by teaching practical business and coaching skills to future wellness entrepreneurs.
- 5:00 – Dinacharya, or Ayurvedic habits, as well as the behavioral science components of Yoga Health Coaching, are key to helping people change foundational habits to reach their desired results. This is often under-utilized or ignored in Ayurvedic pathogenesis schooling, but they are often the most powerful way of healing.
- 13:15 – Kaizen, or small and continual improvement, is a powerful behavioral technique for change. The Kaizen approach helps minimize the daunting task of behavioral evolution, and makes it much more manageable: it helps a person step forward in hope, instead of shrinking back in fear.
- 17:20 – Clients thrive much more in a group than one-on-one with a practitioner. The group of people moving toward Thrive creates a momentum that couldn’t happen without that network of support and collaboration.
- 19:30 – A group striving toward the same goal not only provides support, but it also provides opportunity for leadership. This helps people look up to someone for encouragement, but also creates much more self-reflection and therefore evolution acceleration for the leaders themselves.
