Body-Mind Coaching Tools for Wellness™

COURSE BMT

"Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being. It involves living life in choice, with self-motivated action. Wellness Coaching is a process that assists in bringing into balance different domains of our lives – the physical, intellectual, social, emotional, occupational, and spiritual, to name a few – with breathing, feeling and sensing. Paying attention to body-mind connections presents important pathways to wholeness and change. The power of breath connects it all."
(Dr. Lauree E. Moss, Talk on Wellness Coaching, 2008)

In this seven-week class, you will learn how to integrate the mind and body to deepen body-mind awareness, assisting clients to move forward with energy and aliveness, two cornerstones to a sense of well-being in life.

These tools can be used over the phone, in person and in most practice settings.

Everything we experience in life, all insights we have and actions we take, are connected to the body. There are two phrases that are often said about body-mind work:

  • The mind and body are one.
  • The body never lies.

Tools taught will promote centering and relaxation, breath awareness, self- care and strategies for stress reduction. Specific issues that are often brought to Wellness Coaching, such as coping with anxiety, life transitions, healthful living and finding balance and meaning will be covered.

ICF Coaching Core Competencies will be discussed, highlighted and demonstrated using body-mind coaching tools.

What Students Are Saying

I really enjoyed this class! I always looked forward to the class and gained so much insight professionally as well as personally. The required readings were excellent! Dr Moss is obviously an expert in the Body-Mind connection and has such a skill for relaying that information on to her students. It was my pleasure to be in the class.
Jeanne McDougal Long, LMHC, NCC

Dr. Lauree Moss has created a unique body-mind life coaching model offered in this introductory class that has given me knowledge and skills that I immediately found invaluable and easily integrated into my work. I learned what body-mind awareness is by my own experiences and gained the tools to assist clients in being their own experts with present moment body-mind awareness and moving forward with energy and aliveness. The manual alone that Dr. Moss has authored is a resource I continually find useful. Dr. Moss conveys breadth and depth to her work and desire to help her students embody a powerful learning experience.
