Another Alternative – One-on-One Intensive Training
Suitable candidates can apply for my one-on-one intensive program and start immediately. This is only available to potential students who already possess a certain level of somatic intelligence and awareness. The cost is $5400 CAD plus 5% tax. This would be a retainer paid up front where one hour of my time is equal to $150 and I would give you homework between all sessions. You and I set the times at our convenience. The certification is completed in about 6-8 months. We have a total of 36 hours of one-on-one time either on Skype or in person depending on your location (available in all countries). One-on-one training requires less of a student’s time because it’s more concentrated and caters to individual needs in becoming a well rounded movement facilitator. This particular style of training is focused on cultivating strengths and empowering you to create something that is unique for you and your community. We will also work on bringing awareness to your weaknesses, blind spots, personal challenges and self sabotaging behaviours . You will learn to become a professional movement facilitator and leader by working with your own particular themes, personal areas of interest, musical tastes and niche offerings. Every movement teacher has their own style. I don’t want clones. This is a powerful and intimate teacher/student relationship and process with a high learning curve. I provide guidance and support on how to launch your new business and make it successful. I am not just a movement teacher but also a business coach and nothing makes me happier than to see people succeed and make a living from their greatest passions. If you are interested in making a living from your new career within one year, strongly consider this individual training option to the large group classroom environment online.
