How does YHC work?

The best way to understand how YHC works is to watch this video.

Experiential Learning
The YHC program is based on action-oriented learning. Theory is awesome but action separates those who succeed from those who just add another certificate to their wall. To become Certified you will be guided to run a successful Pilot Program with your members, and add new members throughout your first year of training.

Live Sessions with Cate Stillman
Cate has been leading online courses since 2007 – with increasing skill in coaching, ayurveda, yoga, business and dynamic groups. Her unique ability is finding your unique ability – and packaging that into the marketplace. Her YHC sessions are bi-monthly and unrestricted by levels – meaning you’ll have access to YHC Mastery level members and content, experiencing everything a global, dynamic group offers. All of Cate’s sessions are indexed in a coaching content library for you. Cate shepherds wellness providers to unique success using modern tools and strategies to compete in a digital world.

YHC Peer Mentors
You will have two peer mentors to guide your class through the first year curriculum. You will be encouraged to form an accountability partnership with a member of your class. Your class meets first weekly, then monthly as you get the hang of building your membership program and launching your pilot.

Ongoing Guidance via Live Sessions and Working Parties
Dynamic mentoring is what ensures your success. We have weekly sessions led by Certified Yoga Health Coaches to give you ongoing access to guidance via office hours, working parties and enrollment coaching sessions. Get to know your colleagues as you implement your scalable career.

Weekly Webinars
Each week you have two, action-oriented, 30-minute webinars that you can access via our member’s app or your web browser. The webinars guide you through the process of creating your annual pass, your pricing, your systems for enrollment, marketing and coaching your members to results. Webinars have an audio version for those who would rather listen than watch.

Ebooks, Templates and Libraries
We know what you need to succeed, and we’ve built the resources to guide you. You get access to email templates, training webinar libraries and extensive ebooks on coaching, marketing, enrollment, and operations for your growing career. Topics include websites, community building, blogging, podcasting, mesh networking, time strategies, and technology coaching. How to set a price point, conscious enrollment process, and guiding clients to results – you’ll be trained to enroll clients invested in their own wellness breakthroughs. The Ayurveda, Habits Coaching, and Behavioral Science library is a resource for you to activate your group and achieve results faster by alchemizing ancient and modern wisdom.

What are the three components of YHC?

  1. Enrolling Committed Clients (patients/students/members)
  2. Ayurveda & Habit Evolution
  3. Dynamic Groups

YHC success sits on a three-legged stool. Cate’s innovative strength is generating results-based programs and systems and passing them onto you. The result is your personal small group membership model that gets the most committed clients and helps you get them to results faster. You need all three legs of the stool, and over the two years in YHC you’ll become a pro at all three.

You will join Body Thrive, coached by Cate and the Body Thrive Team to learn life changing practical Ayurveda for your personal evolution. Cate coaches habit evolution from personal experience, incorporating cutting edge behavioral science. By living the 10 daily habits of Ayurveda you will reach personal health breakthroughs.

Dynamic groups enable your members to get results faster than working one-on-one with you. Groups scale your members' success and your revenue. Cate guides you on how to activate your dynamic group so your members reach results faster and you're not in the way of their progress.

Should I Fast Track?

YHC is built for fast-trackers and slow-trackers.

Fast-trackers have an existing clientele and proven skills. All YHC members are expected to earn a return above their investment within the first 12 months of the 2-year program, but fast-trackers are expected to earn a return on their $15k investment within the first 3-6 months of YHC. This return on investment is earned through enrolling members into their pilot version of their annual pass. We have the proven systems, the instruction, and the coaching to guide you to this result.

The more you invest your attention in YHC the faster you’ll earn a return on your investment.
Most new members wonder how they’ll fit YHC into their already busy lives. Forcing function is the answer. More efficient activities force less efficient activity out of your life, thus driving increasing functionality. 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 it ever being the right time. YHC will force less aligned, less fruitful activities out of your life. The right time is when you want a results-based scalable career and break through impact and income ceilings, so you can live your best life.

Our members appreciate the ability to catch up on YHC sessions while walking, doing laundry, commuting, etc. so all sessions can be listened to or watched from a phone app (iOS or Android).

What is the YHC COMMUNITY like?

Dynamic community is a pillar of our methodology. Most YHC members don't start with a network of colleagues who want to increase their income and impact. Access to members, mentors and certified Yoga Health Coaches guarantees your involvement and success. Live coaching sessions are always interactive, whether with your specific class or with all the coaches. You’ll form an accountability partnership. If you come to a live event you’ll get to know Cate in-person and meet the other YHC members.

Community is paramount on the path to career evolution. Ask any successful person about their peer network. Listen. And then, you'll understand the massive benefit of embedding yourself in a high-quality peer network.
