Yoga Life Coach Certification

300/500 Hour Module, Open-To-All: Wild Abundant Life Yoga Life Coaching is a powerful, purposeful conversation designed to create your best life right now. This exciting certification moves you (as client or coach) into steady and consistent creation of new and practical possibilities in your life and the lives of your clients. Start coaching immediately, find greater connection with friends & family, deepen business communication skills, and discover an immediate sense of joy & possibility in your own life.

Includes a kickstart on the Business of Coaching (how to get started with your coaching business).

Every choice represents a new path with more room for exploration. Like all of our programming, learning is largely hands-on. You will coach real people early on, (in both the 100 Hour Online Training, and the 25 Hour In-Person Training) and all through out the program using easy to use tools and principles created by YLC Founder, Debbie Williamson.

IMPORTANT:  We have launched our all-new Online Yoga Life Coach Certification. Payment plans are available.  The Online Training is much more extensive than the weekend certification and includes our exclusive interactive training software, program videos, hard copy textbooks, Emotional Aromatherapy kit, online training manual. Questions on the Online Certification? Scroll to the bottom of the F.A.Q. below, or text Kellie at 617-435-8683.

Is this program registered with the International Association of Coaches or International Coach Federation?
   

For years, Deborah Williamson's Yoga Life Coach program was a registered school under the IAC (International Association of Coaches). In fact, Debbie was a regular blogger for the IAC Voice (see below, under philosophies, for links to her articles). As the program grew, we no longer felt registration under another organization was necessary or helpful for our coaches to obtain clients. The program now stands alone as a certification under Wild Abundant Life.

 

What will I Leave with After Taking This Training?
   

* ability to coach clients immediately
* greater connection in personal relationships with friends & family
* excellent communication skills for business & work
* an immediate sense of joy & possibility in your own life and path
* Business of Coaching (how to get started with your coaching business)

You will ABSOLUTELY be ready to coach real clients after completing this training. We place a heavy emphasis on the practical experience of coaching (translation: you WILL coach & coach often in the training).

 

Who Can Train to Be a Yoga Life Coach?
   

Anyone! Whether you want to coach professionally, or just want to experience an amazing life change, the program is for you. You don't need any more experience than what you have from living your life.

Many yoga teachers find this to be an excellent compliment to their teaching careers, because students in their classes are already asking for coaching, advice & support in this way. It's a natural way to build both business & community.

 

 

Can I Attend If I Don’t Want To Be A Coach Or Yoga Teacher?
   

Yes!  Participants often come to the program just to receive powerful coaching in their own lives. Are you ready for a shift in your own life? Anyone who has a LIFE is qualified to train as a Yoga Life Coach. You will learn to use your own life experience, intuition and wisdom along with active listening and questioning skills to support your client’s agenda. The principles can be applied to any business or relationship.

 

How Is This Program Different From Other Life Coach Trainings?
   

• Price. Many coaching programs cost from $5,000 – $30,000, and grads of these programs do not leave with the skills necessary to begin coaching and making a living. We recognize that you’ve done and paid for much of this work as a yoga teacher or student of yoga. Debbie’s program is priced at $995 (with early bird discounts) in recognition of the work that you have already done.

• Practicality. Every participant will leave ready to coach and equipped with the skills necessary to start a successful coaching business immediately.

• Support. We make sure that you have access to YLC faculty numbers for support, and also add you to the Yoga Life Coach facebook group so you can network with and use your peers as an additional resource.

• Client Referrals. Deborah Williamson’s program was created out of need. She has many more interested potential clients than she can get to in any given week. Coaches trained by Debbie may receive leads for new clients who are ready and willing to purchase services.

• Yoga & the Higher Being - Debbie calls her program Yoga Life Coaching because some principles were derived from the yogic philosophy that we all have the answers that we need, and that we are capable of anything.  While she might not prescribe yoga or meditation for every client, many clients  want that part of her expertise. This is a wonderful add-on for yoga teachers.

Receive live personal coaching from Debbie and your fellow coaches, and get support in setting up your coaching business instantly. You will leave empowered and ready to begin coaching (and earning income of $100-$150 entry level per session) immediately. This program takes place in 1 weekend (followed by 15 hours of client sessions + completion of 200 HR yoga training for final certification).

 

How is Yoga Life Coaching Different from Therapy or Consulting?

A Yoga Life Coach is not a therapist or a consultant. Coaches will not give you advice or tell you what to do. Coaches do not promote “wishing for” or “manifesting” theories as sole strategies towards what you want. You must be willing to take action, declare what you want to the people around you, and be honest with your coach in order to move forward.

 

What Curriculum will be Covered?
   

Debbie updates her curriculum with each Yoga Life Coach Certification Program. As she studies, learns & grows, the program evolves (which is why many people attend multiple times), although the heart of the program, (that we are all capable & powerful and able to create & do more than we know) remains the same.

This is a sample curricular outline from a weekend that goes over some of the topics that are often addressed in training. Note that there is also extensive time dedicated to real, live coaching in small groups and with Debbie & the big group.

DAY ONE:

* Master Yoga Class with Debbie (kick-off / included for YLC participants)
* Intro to Yoga Life Coaching (powerful, purposeful conversations)
* Human Being / Higher Being & the Koshas (inspired by Desikachar)

* Outcomes versus Possibility (we do not coach to outcome)
* Real World Application
* What experience / background is needed to be a life coach?
* First Big Group Coaching Session & Partner Coaching
* Participant Intros & Live Group Coaching
* Review of First Three Coaching Masteries

DAY TWO:

* Review of Next Three Coaching Masteries

* How to start any coaching Session

How Do I Complete Certification After Training?
   
The certification process is slightly different depending on which training option you are choosing (online 100 hour program or 25 hour weekend program).  

25 Hour In-Person Training:  Associate Coach

After completing the 25 hour in-person YLC training, you are designated an Associate Yoga Life Coach and listed on our website.  Further steps are need for your final certification credential.

While certification is not required in most locations to begin coaching professionally, if you do desire final certification, it is dependent upon completion of a registered 200 hour yoga teacher training program (can be retro-active) and completion of 30 client sessions, which you will track and submit to us to receive your final certificate.  Some students have completed this as quickly as two weeks after training completion, and others have taken up to two years.  We suggest completing them as quickly as possible to keep your skills fresh.

100 Hour Online Training:  Certified Coach

If you have already completed a registered 200 Hour yoga teacher training program, completion of the online Yoga Life Coach Certification program results in the credential of Certified Yoga Life Coach.  You will do 30 client sessions during the program with students in the program, as well as family and friends, as part of your training.

 

Can I Take the Program Online, at Home, as a Distance Learning Course?
   

Yes. The program is offered online and is delivered through our interactive program software. The online program includes additional resources and texts, and requires live coaching as well. You will learn to coach and have access to office hours from faculty. View more info on the online training option here: www.wildabundantlife.com/online-trainings

Who Can Attend & How Do I Apply?


Every one of our 300/500 hour modules exists as a stand-alone program and can be attended by anyone with interest, as well as by yoga teachers pursuing advanced 300/500 credentials.  We'd rather have you come for pure curiosity & love of learning than for the certification.

No Application is required to begin the 300/500 Hour program.  Simply register for any one of the eight required modules individually, as they fit, or purchase the entire program in advance for $1,000 off  full tuition.   It may be helpful to download and print the 500 Hour Planning Log to help track and schedule in all of the necessary modules.

“Your life is your laboratory.”
Deborah Williamson
 
3-Day Program Format:
• Daily teaching sessions with coaching & support from Debbie & peers (YOU teach)
• Interactive Discussion with Debbie & peers
• Breakout Sessions based on participant interests / needs / passions
 
The focus of this 3 days is you, the yoga teacher. What’s working now and where can you go from here? Expand your definition of vinyasa – move past the repetition of static breath & flow into dynamic, natural expression & connection. Yoga is a conversation, not a script or lecture. By letting go of right and wrong (and turning traditional yogic anatomy on its head) you’ll teach and make choices with purpose, precision & ease. Inspire your students with intuitive, customized instruction delivered to suit real people of varying abilities and mindsets.
 
The only guideline? See yourself (and your students) as powerful, intelligent & capable of more.
 
Experiment with some the following techniques:
• creating breakthroughs in every class (empowerment for all)
• the art of mini-workshops: whole, part, whole (do, break down, do again)
• minimum, relevant wording / silence & space
• teaching to all (see all students, always)
• fitting the pose to the student (not the student to the pose)
• challenge in motion & challenge in stillness (how to support students in a long hold)
 
Additional discussion topics will be introduced based on group requests. Past groups have evaluated:
• vinyasa in the context of yin and/or restorative yoga
• moving the bones for maximum range of motion
• teaching special populations (kids, elderly, injured, athletes, etc)
• yoga personal training (one-on-one)
• hands on assisting mini-course
• special events: your first retreat or teacher training
• back bending tricks & tools (to get every body into wheel) • the business of yoga

(open to teachers & non-teachers alike)

How is this training different?
Purposeful assisting rapidly accelerates understanding in yoga practice. Yet conventional assisting courses rely on primarily “corrective” adjustments (from the outside in), instead of harnessing the natural intuition of the student in the pose.
 
In this training, learn to co-create with students to maximize independent learning, increased coordination & muscle memory, while simultaneously promoting deep, relaxation in action (from the inside out). Hardwire new confidence & knowledge through use of action & resistance, stability & grounding, and intensity & duration.
 
While traditional assists will be covered as foundation, this interactive weekend certification will unveil entirely new perspectives on yoga anatomy, physiology and non-verbal communication drawn from Debbie’s 30 years of working with bodies in motion.

Go beyond the six-pack for an in-depth look at your power center & core. Connect physical & spiritual in this entirely fresh look at the core. You will sweat, discuss, create & learn new tools to take into classes & workshops!
 
We'll look at both the Metaphorical Core, in terms of self-empowerment, spirituality and growth, and the Physical Core, exploring the intricate relationship between physical, mental, emotional and spiritual actions and reactions within. Your core muscles help when you need to spring into action or curl up into a protective ball. If your core is strained, stressed or untrained painful conditions including low back pain, sacroiliac pain, sciatica, disc problems, spondylolysis, scoliosis, hip degeneration, knee pain, menstruation pain, infertility, and digestive problems may occur.
 
By examining the Core in All Aspects and incorporating the practices of pranayama and meditation, we connect to our universal soul. Channeling breath creates cleansing, energy, expansion and awareness.

Go beyond the six-pack for an in-depth look at your power center & core. Connect physical & spiritual in this entirely fresh look at the core. You will sweat, discuss, create & learn new tools to take into classes & workshops!
 
We'll look at both the Metaphorical Core, in terms of self-empowerment, spirituality and growth, and the Physical Core, exploring the intricate relationship between physical, mental, emotional and spiritual actions and reactions within. Your core muscles help when you need to spring into action or curl up into a protective ball. If your core is strained, stressed or untrained painful conditions including low back pain, sacroiliac pain, sciatica, disc problems, spondylolysis, scoliosis, hip degeneration, knee pain, menstruation pain, infertility, and digestive problems may occur.
 
By examining the Core in All Aspects and incorporating the practices of pranayama and meditation, we connect to our universal soul. Channeling breath creates cleansing, energy, expansion and awareness.

“Your life is your laboratory.”
Deborah Williamson

5-Day Program Format:
• Daily teaching sessions with coaching & support from Debbie & peers (YOU teach)
• Interactive Discussion with Debbie & peers
• Breakout Sessions based on participant interests / needs / passions

The focus of this 5 days is you, the yoga teacher. What’s working now and where can you go from here?

Expand your definition of vinyasa – move past the repetition of static breath & flow into dynamic, natural expression & connection. Yoga is a conversation, not a script or lecture.

By letting go of right and wrong (and turning traditional yogic anatomy on its head) you’ll teach and make choices with purpose, precision & ease. Inspire your students with intuitive, customized instruction delivered to suit real people of varying abilities and mindsets.

The only guideline? See yourself (and your students) as powerful, intelligent & capable of more.

Experiment with some the following techniques:

• creating breakthroughs in every class (empowerment for all)
• the art of mini-workshops: whole, part, whole (do, break down, do again)
• minimum, relevant wording / silence & space
• teaching to all (see all students, always)
• fitting the pose to the student (not the student to the pose)
• challenge in motion & challenge in stillness (how to support students in a long hold)

Additional discussion topics will be introduced based on group requests. Past groups have evaluated:

• vinyasa in the context of yin and/or restorative yoga
• moving the bones for maximum range of motion
• teaching special populations (kids, elderly, injured, athletes, etc)
• yoga personal training (one-on-one)
• hands on assisting mini-course
• special events: your first retreat or teacher training
• back bending tricks & tools (to get every body into wheel)
• the business of yoga

Cancellation Policy: In the event of cancellations, no refunds will be issued. Instead, student will receive a credit to use at any future event (training or retreat) with Debbie.

(open to teachers & non-teachers alike)

How is this training different?
Purposeful assisting rapidly accelerates understanding in yoga practice. Yet conventional assisting courses rely on primarily “corrective” adjustments (from the outside in), instead of harnessing the natural intuition of the student in the pose.

In this training, learn to co-create with students to maximize independent learning, increased coordination & muscle memory, while simultaneously promoting deep, relaxation in action (from the inside out). Hardwire new confidence & knowledge through use of action & resistance, stability & grounding, and intensity & duration.

While traditional assists will be covered as foundation, this interactive weekend certification will unveil entirely new perspectives on yoga anatomy, physiology and non-verbal communication drawn from Debbie’s 30 years of working with bodies in motion.

Cancellation Policy: In the event of cancellations, no refunds will be issued. Instead, student will receive a credit to use at any future event (training or retreat) with Debbie or Wild Abundant Life. Certain exclusions may apply. Ask for details.

(open to teachers & non-teachers alike)

How is this training different?
Purposeful assisting rapidly accelerates understanding in yoga practice. Yet conventional assisting courses rely on primarily “corrective” adjustments (from the outside in), instead of harnessing the natural intuition of the student in the pose.

In this training, learn to co-create with students to maximize independent learning, increased coordination & muscle memory, while simultaneously promoting deep, relaxation in action (from the inside out). Hardwire new confidence & knowledge through use of action & resistance, stability & grounding, and intensity & duration.

While traditional assists will be covered as foundation, this interactive weekend certification will unveil entirely new perspectives on yoga anatomy, physiology and non-verbal communication drawn from Debbie’s 30 years of working with bodies in motion.

Cancellation Policy: In the event of cancellations, no refunds will be issued. Instead, student will receive a credit to use at any future event (training or retreat) with Debbie or Wild Abundant Life. Certain exclusions may apply. Ask for details.

Go beyond the six-pack for an in-depth look at your power center & core. Connect physical & spiritual in this entirely fresh look at the core. You will sweat, discuss, create & learn new tools to take into classes & workshops!

We'll look at both the Metaphorical Core, in terms of self-empowerment, spirituality and growth, and the Physical Core, exploring the intricate relationship between physical, mental, emotional and spiritual actions and reactions within. Your core muscles help when you need to spring into action or curl up into a protective ball. If your core is strained, stressed or untrained painful conditions including low back pain, sacroiliac pain, sciatica, disc problems, spondylolysis, scoliosis, hip degeneration, knee pain, menstruation pain, infertility, and digestive problems may occur.

By examining the Core in All Aspects and incorporating the practices of pranayama and meditation, we connect to our universal soul. Channeling breath creates cleansing, energy, expansion and awareness.

“Your life is your laboratory.”
Deborah Williamson

3-Day Program Format:
• Daily teaching sessions with coaching & support from Debbie & peers (YOU teach)
• Interactive Discussion with Debbie & peers
• Breakout Sessions based on participant interests / needs / passions

The focus of this 3 days is you, the yoga teacher. What’s working now and where can you go from here? Expand your definition of vinyasa – move past the repetition of static breath & flow into dynamic, natural expression & connection. Yoga is a conversation, not a script or lecture. By letting go of right and wrong (and turning traditional yogic anatomy on its head) you’ll teach and make choices with purpose, precision & ease. Inspire your students with intuitive, customized instruction delivered to suit real people of varying abilities and mindsets.

The only guideline? See yourself (and your students) as powerful, intelligent & capable of more.

Experiment with some the following techniques:
• creating breakthroughs in every class (empowerment for all)
• the art of mini-workshops: whole, part, whole (do, break down, do again)
• minimum, relevant wording / silence & space
• teaching to all (see all students, always)
• fitting the pose to the student (not the student to the pose)
• challenge in motion & challenge in stillness (how to support students in a long hold)

Additional discussion topics will be introduced based on group requests. Past groups have evaluated:
• vinyasa in the context of yin and/or restorative yoga
• moving the bones for maximum range of motion
• teaching special populations (kids, elderly, injured, athletes, etc)
• yoga personal training (one-on-one)
• hands on assisting mini-course
• special events: your first retreat or teacher training
• back bending tricks & tools (to get every body into wheel) • the business of yoga

Cancellation Policy: In the event of cancellations, no refunds will be issued. Instead, student will receive a credit to use at any future event (training or retreat) with Debbie or Wild Abundant Life. Certain exclusions may apply. Ask for details.

“Your life is your laboratory.”
Deborah Williamson

3-Day Program Format:
• Daily teaching sessions with coaching & support from Debbie & peers (YOU teach)
• Interactive Discussion with Debbie & peers
• Breakout Sessions based on participant interests / needs / passions

The focus of this 3 days is you, the yoga teacher. What’s working now and where can you go from here? Expand your definition of vinyasa – move past the repetition of static breath & flow into dynamic, natural expression & connection. Yoga is a conversation, not a script or lecture. By letting go of right and wrong (and turning traditional yogic anatomy on its head) you’ll teach and make choices with purpose, precision & ease. Inspire your students with intuitive, customized instruction delivered to suit real people of varying abilities and mindsets.

The only guideline? See yourself (and your students) as powerful, intelligent & capable of more.

Experiment with some the following techniques:
• creating breakthroughs in every class (empowerment for all)
• the art of mini-workshops: whole, part, whole (do, break down, do again)
• minimum, relevant wording / silence & space
• teaching to all (see all students, always)
• fitting the pose to the student (not the student to the pose)
• challenge in motion & challenge in stillness (how to support students in a long hold)

Additional discussion topics will be introduced based on group requests. Past groups have evaluated:
• vinyasa in the context of yin and/or restorative yoga
• moving the bones for maximum range of motion
• teaching special populations (kids, elderly, injured, athletes, etc)
• yoga personal training (one-on-one)
• hands on assisting mini-course
• special events: your first retreat or teacher training
• back bending tricks & tools (to get every body into wheel) • the business of yoga

Cancellation Policy: In the event of cancellations, no refunds will be issued. Instead, student will receive a credit to use at any future event (training or retreat) with Debbie or Wild Abundant Life. Certain exclusions may apply. Ask for details.

Go beyond the six-pack for an in-depth look at your power center & core. Connect physical & spiritual in this entirely fresh look at the core. You will sweat, discuss, create & learn new tools to take into classes & workshops!

We'll look at both the Metaphorical Core, in terms of self-empowerment, spirituality and growth, and the Physical Core, exploring the intricate relationship between physical, mental, emotional and spiritual actions and reactions within. Your core muscles help when you need to spring into action or curl up into a protective ball. If your core is strained, stressed or untrained painful conditions including low back pain, sacroiliac pain, sciatica, disc problems, spondylolysis, scoliosis, hip degeneration, knee pain, menstruation pain, infertility, and digestive problems may occur.

By examining the Core in All Aspects and incorporating the practices of pranayama and meditation, we connect to our universal soul. Channeling breath creates cleansing, energy, expansion and awareness.

“Your life is your laboratory.”
Deborah Williamson

3-Day Program Format:
• Daily teaching sessions with coaching & support from Debbie & peers (YOU teach)
• Interactive Discussion with Debbie & peers
• Breakout Sessions based on participant interests / needs / passions

The focus of this 3 days is you, the yoga teacher. What’s working now and where can you go from here? Expand your definition of vinyasa – move past the repetition of static breath & flow into dynamic, natural expression & connection. Yoga is a conversation, not a script or lecture. By letting go of right and wrong (and turning traditional yogic anatomy on its head) you’ll teach and make choices with purpose, precision & ease. Inspire your students with intuitive, customized instruction delivered to suit real people of varying abilities and mindsets.

The only guideline? See yourself (and your students) as powerful, intelligent & capable of more.

Experiment with some the following techniques:
• creating breakthroughs in every class (empowerment for all)
• the art of mini-workshops: whole, part, whole (do, break down, do again)
• minimum, relevant wording / silence & space
• teaching to all (see all students, always)
• fitting the pose to the student (not the student to the pose)
• challenge in motion & challenge in stillness (how to support students in a long hold)

Additional discussion topics will be introduced based on group requests. Past groups have evaluated:
• vinyasa in the context of yin and/or restorative yoga
• moving the bones for maximum range of motion
• teaching special populations (kids, elderly, injured, athletes, etc)
• yoga personal training (one-on-one)
• hands on assisting mini-course
• special events: your first retreat or teacher training
• back bending tricks & tools (to get every body into wheel) • the business of yoga

Cancellation Policy: In the event of cancellations, no refunds will be issued. Instead, student will receive a credit to use at any future event (training or retreat) with Debbie or Wild Abundant Life. Certain exclusions may apply. Ask for details.

…I was amazed at how much I learned in such a short time. Debbie made it light, practical, fun and engaging.

We started coaching right away. Navigating through a series of questions to help guide the client to her own aha moment was tricky at first. But throughout the weekend, Debbie had us coach, coach, and coach!!! The live group and one-on-one coaching sessions allowed us to dynamically learn and then put knowledge into practice.

By day 4, I had coached 10 people, had my yoga life coach website up and running, and had created a business card. This is all because of Debbie sharing all her knowledge and passion. She truly cares and sets you up for success.
