OUR VERY UNIQUE PROGRAM MAKES YOU A VERY UNIQUE COACH
Bridging Health and Life Coaching
HYL coach training program uniquely brings together defining principles of Health Coaching and Life Coaching into a dynamic whole coaching approach. To make true lasting life changes all three aspects of oneself must be engaged: mind, body and spirit. It is not enough to help people choose the right foods to eat if they can’t love themselves enough to make a change. Participants learn to value the whole person and see how well-being is created through everyday choices and behaviors.
Emotional Responsibility Method™
The Emotional Responsibility Method™ is the cornerstone of HYL coaching and is the “how to method” for change and action. It bridges the body, mind, spirit gap creating a link between inner wisdom, knowing and action. This proprietary coaching method allows people to observe their feelings, process their emotions and take positive steps and actions toward emotional responsibility, health and personal growth. The Emotional Responsibility Method™ brings you back to the true self free from all those negative emotions that keep you stuck like anger, disappointment, shame, or guilt. Get ready to expand your own consciousness and understand the intricate nature of life.
It’s About Daily Choice Not Goals
Life is driven by daily choices. Of course it’s vital to have dreams and desires but simply having a goal to realize the dream is not enough. HYL Coaches work with clients to align their choices so their deepest life dreams can come true.

“One of my favorite parts of yoga teacher training were the discussion about self-inquiry and self-development. The HYL Coach Training expanded on those discussions in ways that not only helped me learn about myself, but prepared me to bring the gift of self-discovery for others. The coach training program further shifted my perspective toward what true health really looks like and I will never be the same!”

Yoga, both asana practice and meditation, spark students to understand and examine underlying beliefs and behaviors revealed from the subconscious mind. As this happens students yearn for more information on how to live with more clarity and integrity. Healthy lifestyle choices become important as do healthy relationships. The HYL Coach Training provides a variety of tools for personal growth and communications that can be applied for self-learning or in the family, with friends, work associates and community.
Although students of yoga do self-inquiry and self-examination for clarity, the HYL Coaching process allows for exponential learning and healing. People trust yoga teachers and count on them not just to learn yoga asana practice but to learn more about the self. When a yoga teacher becomes a HYL Coach she/he becomes a leader in this growing field. Plus, building a HYL Coaching practice along with yoga teaching enables you to work full time in the industry you love.
HYL encourages all forms of self-awareness. We believe you can only work as deeply, fully and competently with another as you have worked on yourself. At different times of your life you may be drawn to explore self-awareness through yoga (meditation, mindfulness, repetitive prayer), or other forms of quieting the mind such as self-reflection and self-inquiry. Yoga is not a religion. It is an ancient (5000-year-old) Vedic tradition to learn about, develop and expand consciousness.
The HYL Coach training offers something for everyone interested in learning how to conduct coaching conversations and in learning how to make healthy changes and healthy lifestyle choices. The HYL training also prepares you to work as a coach and develop a robust coaching practice. HYL Coaches learn the HYL proprietary change tool, The Emotional Responsibility Method™ (ER Method™). To shift from a negative emotional reaction to a place of wholeness and emotional responsibility in one coaching session is only possible with the HYL ER Method™.
