Customizing Your Coaching to Serve Your Community

Customizing Your Coaching to Serve Your Community

Still riding the “high” from the Yogahealer Mexico retreat in March, Carly chats with Gin Burchfield, who has taken her Yoga Health Coaching training and certification and created her own unique programs that serve kids and families.

Gin has been a successful massage therapist for 16 years. For the last 12 years, she has also been providing Ayurvedic consulting on a one-on-one basis. What she’s found is that the one-on-one model is exhausting and not very successful in terms of long-term impact.

As a certified Yoga Health Coach, Gin is serving parents with the Body Thrive model and children with her own unique program called “My Body is Science,” which combines anatomy, yoga, and the habits of ayurveda.  The intergenerational aspect of her work emphasizes that vibrant health is both your birthright and your legacy.

The flexible structure of Yoga Health Coaching provides us with the opportunity to create custom programs like Gin’s. As the YHC community grows, we see more and more coaches becoming empowered, recognizing their strengths, and utilizing their unique interests to offer a habits-based program to their niche populations.

 

What you’ll get out of tuning in:

  • How the one-on-one coaching model is limited in its ability to effect long-term change.
  • How the flexibility of the Yoga Health Coaching model allows us to deliver programs customized to our own unique strengths and interests.
  • How the Yoga Health Coaching community supports our endeavors regardless of our niche markets.
