A Live Online Coach Training

The Power of Embodied Transformation

Create lasting change with your coaching clients.


Learn to Wield the Power of Embodied Change

Most approaches to change don’t stick.

They may offer powerful insights. Give us exciting ideas. Or change our perspective on things.

But they’re fundamentally incomplete. And the change they bring simply cannot last.

We’ve been seduced by insights, connecting cognitive dots, and the search for rational understanding.

But this isn’t enough.

We cannot think our way towards transformation. 

So much of who we’ve become — our habits, tendencies, blind spots, patterns of reactivity, areas of numbness (generally, the places where we’re stuck) live in the very tissues of our bodies.

And the body does not yield to insights alone.

To create true transformation, we must descend beneath the mind, however brilliant it might be, so we can access a wisdom beyond thought.

It’s here — in the wholeness of an embodied approach — where we find the intelligence of change. 

A change that sustains.

Embodied coaching is a process that allows you to connect with the entirety of your client — their thoughts, feelings, actions, spirit, and body. And in so doing, gives you access to an unparalleled depth of transformation.

During this training, you’ll learn directly from the founder of somatic coaching — Richard Strozzi-Heckler — alongside contemporary coaches who have integrated this powerful approach with new discoveries in neuroscience, trauma-work, and leadership development.

When you learn to coach somatically you’ll be able to…

  • Use the body as a gateway into your client’s world, helping you take your coaching conversations to a new level of depth
  • Recognize conditioned patterns in your clients as they arise, so that you canhelp them break stubborn and unhelpful habits
  • Design embodied practices for your clients, allowing them to embed the changes they make sustainably

This is what your client truly wants.

Not a better understanding of why they’re stuck, but a way forward. One based on wholeness and authenticity—so deeply felt and integrated that it lasts.

This is the Power of Embodied Transformation

Here’s how it works…

  • The 18 workshops are weekly, for 90 minutes on Zoom. They include a teaching lecture, followed by Q+A.

Like all our courses, The Power of Embodied Transformation is carefully designed to help you learn this powerful coaching methodology. 

Each workshop brings in new, critical skills that build on the previous material.

And it’s not just about your clients. It’s also about you… This work will bring you into a new and profound relationship with yourself — connecting you to your own inherent wholeness.
