Body as Coaching Instrument

Key practices for powerful presence, deep listening, awareness-building and transformational practice design, based on generative embodied coaching principles

A one-day immersive experience into the power of coaching in, with and through the body

This 1-Day, experiential workshop is a solid foundational training for coaches wishing to develop practical skills, core concepts and creative principles in working with the body in business or life coaching.

Our body-mind connection and alignment determine how we think, how we feel, how we are perceived by others and what we achieve. And using posture, breathing and movement helps clients go deep quickly and creates lasting results.
Hence, the somatic line of development is an extremely helpful area for coaches to address. Coaches know the body matters and this is a training to clarify how, and give you many useful tools.

Participants learn through practice a set of highly pragmatic tools that they can apply immediately to bring the body more to their business and life coaching. They also learn generative principles for designing developmental body-mind coaching exercices and ongoing practices for their clients that support them in developing both immediate insights and longer-term embodied transformation.

“Maud’s online coach training enabled me to better include the body and use it as an instrument in my coaching work, and to be better able to access my intuition. I also deepened my capacity to develop embodied practices for my clients that support them on their journey of identifying, and ultimately changing their beliefs and assumptions about themselves.

I am now more attuned to my body and invite my clients more systematically and more skillfully to do the same.

I definitely recommend working with Maud: she is simply fabulous as a host, trainer and coach ! (I had the pleasure to experience her 1-1 as well)! She breaks the elements down in manageable steps even for people with little experience. She is clear and attuned to what is alive! Bravo, Maud. Learning with you is a pleasure!”
