It doesn’t matter if you have a big email list or a small dedicated following, if you’d like to break six figures, or just lead a small local group, work online or in person or both, we’ve got the fastest, easiest, and best way to guide you to the next level of your wellness career.

We even have nurses and doctors learn with us to gain a wider range of tools and experience with which to guide their patients to better wellness results faster. If you’d like to take your wellness career to the next level, as opposed to just learning another modality training, then taking a course with Yoga Health Coaching is your next step.

If you are not a Wellness professional but have a lot of experience from a personal healer journey and you wish to share that with the community, then this is the right course for your next step.

Surveys show on average that the vast majority of Yoga Health Coaching members:

  • Earn earn their tuition back at the launch of their Pilot (Months 6-9, first year) and earn a return on their investment after that (YHC’s who already have a wellness profession before starting).
  • Improve their personal health, personal habits, and personal integrity with their time, their calendar, and their commitments.
  • Dramatically improve their coaching skills and ability to lead dynamic groups, even in an online or distant learning environment.
  • Transition to a leverageable high end membership business model within 12 months.

This is possible because members are able to greatly simplify their lives, increase their focus and productivity, strengthen their personal body habits, and leverage their unique talents.

We call the Yoga Health Coaching Certification program a “better career model for wellness pros”. Not only do our members personal lifestyle become aligned to the life they want to live, but the impact they have is much greater due to the commitment of their members and the power of their systems.

For more specific details about the results clients have achieved and the impact the Program has had on their lives, please see our Reviews and also listen to Coach of the Month stories from our blog and podcast.

Cate instructs all of the lessons in the course, and is the head coach of YHC. You will have access to Cate in a Live Session twice a month with YHC. You will also have weekly access to Cate in your first year with the Body Thrive Course, which is where you watch her coach members and are a Body Thrive member yourself.

3 months: Body Thrive
Year 1 YHC: Yoga Health Coaching
Year 2 YHC: YHC Continuity or YHC Mastery

Total length: 27 months

YHC is like a practical MBA for Wellness Professionals and prospective Wellness Professionals.

This is the average breakdown of time/month in YHC:

  • (4) 30 minute webinars: 1/week
  • 90 minute coaching with Cate: 2/month
  • YHC Peer Mentor Group: 1 hour/month
  • Implementation: 5 hours/week (Recommended minimum)
  • Additional YHC Team Live Coaching Sessions: 3 hours/month (optional)
  • 1-1 Coaching Session with your mentor: 15 min/month
  • YHC Forum engagement: 30 minutes/week (Recommended)

Total average: 7-10 hours/week

The more focus you put into YHC the more you’ll get out of it. You’ll want to keep up with the 30 minute weekly webinars. You’ll want a few hours a week to implement the action steps. As you take YHC less productive activities should automatically be forced out of your life. In Physics this is called forcing function. More efficient activites force less efficient activity out of your life – thus driving increasing functionality.

Most new members wonder how they’ll fit in YHC into their already busy lives. Forcing function is the answer. Other activities will give way – in ways that you can and can’t predict before you start. If YHC seems like a good fit – don’t worry about the time. YHC will force less aligned, less meaningful activities out of your life, so you can live your life and career aligned.

All of our live sessions are available to watch or listen within 24 hours, and usually sooner. We do encourage you to make at least two live sessions per month, as we notice that those who come live get results faster! Members appreciate the ability to catch up on YHC sessions while walking, doing laundry, commuting, etc. so all sessions can be listened to rather than watched.

And then, you’ll understand the massive benefit of embedding yourself in a high-quality peer network. We connect on live weekly sessions, on our daily forum, and at live retreats.

YHC was originally a 15 month program. We found members wanted to stay in the program for additional mentoring. Rather than rush the experience, we encourage our members to relax and take aligned action through this deeply transformative career growth. We maintained our same pricing structure by building the second year into the pricing. The payment plan assists you in taking immediate action to recoup your investment. Then in the second year, you have no payments, while you should have a well developed new income stream. From our experience in supporting members make the complete transition into this highly effective streamlined business model, we no longer offer the 15 month version.
