A LETTER FROM YOUR LEAD COACH, JULIE:
Hi Everyone! My name is Julie Wallace. I’m the owner of Bloom Yoga Fitness Studios, as well as a Certified Life Coach and the Creator of the Bloom Holistic Life Coach Training. My journey as a Life Coach began in 2010, when I received my Coaching Certification through the Fowler Wainright Institute of Professional Coaching. After completing this Training, I went on to continue my education by receiving my New Life Story Certification with Dr. David Kruger, as well as my Health Coaching Certification under the direction of Dr. Jonny Bowden in 2011. I began offering one-on-one Coaching Sessions through my Studio, Bloom Yoga, in 2012 and created several Group Coaching Programs – including the 28 Day RESET.
While my Coaching Certifications provided me with a strong base of knowledge to begin my practice, I learned that traditional Coaching methods did not always address the unique and multi-faceted needs of my clients. I found myself regularly drawing upon my background in Yoga, Meditation, and other Holistic practices during my Coaching Sessions. I noticed great success through these methods, and came to realize that a Holistic approach of addressing every aspect of my client’s lives – body, mind, and spirit – created a unique and powerful avenue for healing. I’ve personally witnessed hundreds of my clients achieve an overall better quality of living through Holistic Coaching Sessions. I have worked hard throughout the past several years to refine and polish these techniques, and am so excited to share everything I’ve learned with each of you, in this online Holistic Life Coach Training.
In a market that’s saturated with large Corporate Trainings, I am thrilled to be able to offer the alternative of a small and intimate learning environment that offers the personal attention you deserve. I will personally guide you through 45 hours of online Training, via Zoom Meetings. Our time will be packed with valuable and practical methods to help you establish a foundation in Holistic Coaching. In addition, I’ll be sharing many business and marketing tools to help you launch a successful Coaching career.
Whether you are a natural born helper / healer seeking to monetize your abilities in a new career path, or a working professional looking to enhance your existing healing practice - the Holistic Life Coach Certification may be exactly what you need to polish and refine your innate abilities. Participants will emerge from this empowering program with the confidence and wisdom to facilitate profound, meaningful, and lasting change.
If you have an innate ability to connect with others, as well as a passion for holistic living, then you can make a powerful difference and enjoy a lucrative career as a Holistic Life Coach. This unique Certification Program blends traditional Life Coaching Techniques with ancient philosophy, to create an effective and heartfelt approach to healing. Over the course of four
months you will polish and refine your natural coaching abilities, and will fill your tool belt with all of the techniques needed to become a knowledgeable and proficient Coach. You will discover how to address every aspect of a client’s life – physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual – in order to create lasting and profound changes.
Through this training, you will learn Holistic coaching concepts drawing from ancient wisdom and philosophy as well as modern day coaching technique including:
• How to assist your client in uncovering their current belief systems, and how to create new and powerful thought patterns
• How to co-create an effective plan of action with your client, resulting in long term success
• How to implement the best practices, methods, and tools to help your clients achieve their goals in food and health, emotional and cognitive wellbeing, and spiritual advancement
• How to coach small groups, facilitate workshops, and host seminars in the area of Holistic Wellness
In addition you will learn how to build a successful Life Coaching business, including:
• How to attract the right clients to your Life Coaching practice
• How to brand your unique business and market with confidence and ease
• How to establish sustainable fees
ONLINE PROGRAM STRUCTURE:
The bulk of your learning will happen over the Course of four training weekends, facilitated via Zoom Meetings (browse dates here). We completely restructured the Training for online learning in the Spring of 2020 and have found the online format to be flexible and convenient, while offering the same high standard of education and intimate learning environment of our In House Programs!
Julie will provide detailed and fool-proof instructions for accessing Zoom Meetings - you do not need to be tech savvy in order to participate! Zoom provides a community oriented meeting format where you can see and interactive with all of your classmates and your instructor in live time. It is very similar to learning in a class room, with the added comfort and flexibility of learning in your own home. *Please note - you will need internet access, as well as a smart phone, tablet, or computer to access meetings.
Each Training weekend will include a blend of Lectures, Q&A, and time to explore the concepts / complete hands on learning from home. In addition, Julie will provide Reading Assignments to complete between weekends. The Training is rich in education and fascinating content, and you will be provided with all of the tools and education needed to become a knowledgable and proficient Coach.
PRO BONO COACHING SESSIONS:
One of the most essential parts of becoming a Holistic Life Coach is practice! It’s important to actually apply the techniques you learn in a real world setting in order to become a proficient Coach. Therefore, upon completion of the your Training Weekends, you will have the opportunity to Coach your very own Client, pro-bono (pro-bono is just a fancy word that means you’ll be Coaching free of charge). We know this might sound a little intimidating (Ummm. I just finished the Training. How do you expect me to Coach someone already?!)… but don’t be scared! This process is essentially “Coaching on Training Wheels” and we’ll provide you with every bit of information and support to guide you through it. You’ll be provided with a “Beginner” Coaching outline, and will be told exactly what to do during your Sessions. The Coaching techniques you’ll use will be simple and straightforward and will include helping your client outline their goals, helping them design a path to achieving those goals, and holding them accountable throughout the process. It’s simply a way to get your feet wet, and to “rip the bandaid off” when it comes to Coaching. Trust us, there’s no better way to learn how to coach than to COACH (and again, we’ll be supporting you the entire way!).
Your Pro-Bono Coaching process will begin at the close of our final Training Weekend. You'll be required to find your own client, but Julie will provide plenty of time and support throughout our Training Weekends to assist you with this. You will be required to provide Julie will a recording of your third Pro-Bono Coaching Session which will act as your Final Review. Again, you do not need to be tech-savvy to complete this Training, and Julie will provide you with detailed instructions as to how to create and submit your recording. Julie will listen to the recording and provide feedback. In addition, you will be reviewed by your Pro-Bono Client and will also be asked to complete Self Review.
Certification will be received within 30 days after submitting your Recording / Review Forms, so long as you have met all standards.
**Please note, you will not receive your Graduation Certificate until the Pro-Bono Coaching process has been completed, and only if you have met all of the required standards. Your certificate will be mailed to you upon completion of your review! **

"I’m a graduate of the Spring 2019 Holistic Life Coach training and want to share two points as you consider embarking on this great journey.

I was apprehensive to apply for the Holistic Life Coach Training. I was invited to be a part of the 2017 training and my response was, “I need to get my own life together before I can coach others”. This year, I was invited again and my apprehension hadn’t changed, but I knew that I needed to harness my intuitive energy that seemed to magnetized people to me. My expectations were that I was going to learn more about how use this gift to support others.
After the very first weekend, I would have been content with the training because my soul was on fire. My head was full of concepts and ideas that I wanted to pour myself into. My heart was full of possibility for the potential transformative power to become an amazing coach to the one client that needs me the most. Me. I was not expecting that. Not even a little.
If you are holding back because you feel like you need a life coach yourself, just stop it. We all have a story and issues to work out. That’s what will make you amazing, relatable, and real.
This training is powerful and YOU deserve this gift to yourself. Harness your own power and then share how you did it. Love and light to you!
- JENN FRONTIERO (SPRING 2017 GRADUATE)
What is a Holistic Life Coach?
In it’s most simplistic definition - a Holistic Life Coach is a Life Coach who takes a Holistic approach to healing, addressing all aspects of a client’s life (body, mind, and spirit). But we don’t think you’re here for the simple definition, so let’s break things down a little further….
First, we’ll start by defining the role of a Life Coach! Life Coaches are warm and empathetic individuals with a passion for helping others. They assist their clients to achieve their goals, overcome obstacles, and navigate through life’s many challenges.
Just as an athletic Coach would encourage and motivate an athlete, correct their mistakes, cheer them on in times of doubt, hold them accountable, challenge them to reach their highest potential, etc. – a Life Coach is someone who Coaches a person through life. Coaches provide their clients with the tools and insight to assist them in achieving their highest potential. They work with their clients to define and set Goals, and provide accountability and support as their client works towards those goals. They assist their clients in uncovering their personal blocks and obstacles, and work with them to overcome challenges and rewire their thinking. They help their clients to shift their perspective, and find new approaches for solving problems. They use their intuition, instinct, and personal life experiences to tailor Coaching Sessions based on the unique needs of each individual.
But this Training isn’t just a Life Coach Training…. It’s a Holistic Life Coach Training. A Holistic Life Coach does everything mentioned above, but with a Holistic approach. Holistic Coaches believe that we are multi-faceted individuals, and that we must address all aspects of our being in order to create real and lasting changes. A Holistic Life Coach will address many different aspects of a client’s life in order to help them overcome challenges… this means addressing not only the mind, but also the body and the spirit. Holistic Coaches draw upon many different techniques to assist their clients – from traditional Coaching methods (such as goal setting and accountability), to holistic healing modalities (such as meditation and visualizing).
What makes this Training different from a typical Life Coach Training?
The Holistic Life Coach Program is a unique blend of traditional Life Coaching Techniques and ancient healing modalities. While Holistic Coaching borrows many techniques from traditional Life Coaching, such as goal setting, accountability, and client empowerment, it also uses a variety of other methods such as yogic philosophy, meditation, guided visualization, and much more. Your Lead Trainer, Julie, has been coaching with these methods for years and has found them to be profoundly effective.
In addition, the Holistic Life Coach Training places a great emphasis on the importance of coaching from your intuition. We believe that there is no exact science or “cookie cutter” approach to coaching. Humans are organic beings with highly unique and complex sets of belief systems, thought processes, goals, and obstacles. Therefore, in order for Coaching to be successful, we feel that it too needs to be organic. The Holistic Life Coach Training will encourage you to discover and foster the healer that lies within you; to follow your instinct and intuition in the Coaching process; and to add your own unique flair to your Coaching approach.
As you progress throughout the Training, you will discover that your first and most important coaching client is yourself. You will be challenged and encouraged to apply the Holistic Life Coaching techniques within your own lives, to release self-limiting beliefs, and to facilitate positive change – thus allowing you to coach from a place of authenticity.
What will I learn throughout this Training?
Throughout this Training you will learn the Holistic Life Coach Program in its entirety. This includes the entire process of Coaching - from the moment a client walks through your door until the day their Coaching process is complete. You’ll be given a tool box of practical Life Coaching techniques and will discover how to establish client trust; create clear channels for communication with your client; uncover and work through a client’s self-limiting beliefs; develop and use your intuition in the coaching process; help your client to establish clear goals (both short and long term); and learn effective techniques to hold them accountable for those goals.
In addition to traditional Life Coaching techniques, you will be exposed to a variety of other healing modalities such as visualization, eastern philosophy (chakras, prana, nadis, etc), the Enneagram, meditation, and more. You will be encouraged to use your intuition and unique set of gifts in order to assist your clients. You will be taught to see your client as a holistic being – body, mind, and spirit – and discover how to address the needs of each.
Finally, you will learn the business of Coaching including branding, marketing, how to attract clients, what to charge, etc. You’ll learn a variety of Coaching approaches such as one on one Coaching, Group Coaching, Online Coaching, and more. You’ll spend a significant time practice coaching throughout the Training, allowing you to put your knowledge to work and gain real-world experience.
This is a comprehensive and detailed Program that will leave you feeling confident, inspired, and ready to facilitate change for yourself and others!
Is this Training Accredited?
When Julie developed this program she debated for some time whether or not to get it accredited. At the end, she decided to move forward in launching the program without accreditation. This is because Holistic Life Coaching is a very unique form of healing that differs in many ways from traditional Life Coaching methods. She felt it was a better choice to forge her own path in the Coaching world, versus attempting to mold her program to fit within existing standards. That being said, the Holistic Life Coach Training Program meets all of the recognized standards of accreditation, and in fact, exceeds them in many ways!
Additionally, accreditation is generally not necessary in the Coaching world as it is likely that you will be Coaching independently. Coaches generally establish their own business and Coaching practice, rather than seeking employment through an existing organization. While accreditation might be a nice addition to your biography, you will find it is unnecessary in building a successful Coaching practice. What matters most is that you are a talented and well-trained Coach who helps your clients to achieve results... this is something that the Holistic Life Coach Program can most definitely help you to achieve!
I'm interested in the Training but I'm not sure that I really want to become a Life Coach. Can I still participate?
Absolutely! We've had many people participate in the Training as a way to enrich their personal lives, grow on an emotional and spiritual level, enhance their intuition, and apply the Holistic Life Coach techniques to their own lives. The Training is a wonderful journey - even for those who have no desire to Coach.
Will there be a lot of homework?
The Training consists of both contact and non-contact hours. This means that you’ll have a small amount of homework to complete during your time off each month. This will usually consist of a reading assignment, with an occasional exercise to practice at home such as meditation, practice coaching, etc. We have put a lot of thought and care into your reading assignments, and can ensure that all of the required reading is both fascinating and educational (and probably won’t feel like homework at all)! Any other assignments in addition to your reading will be both manageable and enjoyable, and we’ll provide you with plenty of notice and support.
Is Life Coaching a profitable industry?
Life Coaching is an effective healing modality that has the potential to be highly lucrative. Whether or not a Life Coaching practice is profitable, will depend greatly upon the individual Coach – including their natural talent and effectiveness as a coach; the number of clients they’re willing to see; their level of motivation and work ethic; their business sense and marketing plan; etc. Throughout the Holistic Life Coach Training you will learn the entire business side of Coaching including marketing, branding, what to charge, how to attract clients, etc. You will be encouraged to discover your own unique niche within the world of Coaching, and will be taught a variety of approaches to Coaching such as One-on-One Coaching, Group Coaching, Specialty Workshops, Online Programs, and more. In other words, you’ll be given all of the tools you need to succeed as a Life Coach… the rest will be up to you!
Will I have to take a written test in order to Graduate?
We do not require our Trainees to take a written test in order to graduate. However, we do require a Practical Exam instead. We will ask that your final Coaching Session with your pro-bono Client be video taped (see above for details on what a “pro-bono client” is). The recorded Session will later be observed and evaluated by Julie, as your Final Exam. This Final Coaching Session will take place at the very end of the Training and we promise that by that time you’ll have all the tools and knowledge to complete it successfully!
I feel drawn to Life Coaching, but I’m just not sure if I’ll make a good Coach. How do I know that I’m ready for this Training?
If you feel drawn to a profession in Holistic Life Coaching, then there’s a pretty good chance you’ve already been coaching people for many years without even knowing it! Are you a great listener? Are you caring and compassionate? Do you consider yourself a helper? Are you the person that your friends and loved ones seek out when they need advice? Do you find that people tend to open up to you easily? Yep, we thought so! As we mentioned earlier, Coaching is a very intuitive and natural process. We just provide tools, practice, support, and training to help you refine and shape those innate abilities.
A “good” Coach is one who can recognize people’s untapped potential; who enjoys listening and giving heartfelt advice; and who feels a strong passion and desire to help others achieve their greatest wellbeing. If this sounds like something you can handle - and if you are ready to learn, practice, and work hard to refine your abilities - then you have your answer! You are ready, and you will make a wonderful Coach.

"I think the being a good life coach requires having experienced transformation yourself. In order to coach others to peace one must have walked the path themselves. Julie’s training program gives aspiring coaches that opportunity. The program teaches the theory behind the techniques AND gives participants the opportunity to apply them to their own lives. The experience was transformative and provided me with the tools and confidence I needed to empower others to achieve the same. I’m forever grateful for my time in Julie’s certification program!"
