Building a Complementary Spiritual Coaching Practice Will Allow You To Take Control, Stabilize Your Income, And Inspire Balanced Self-Care In Your Work
The potential: Your students’ current life-challenges and conditioning are amplified and brought to the surface on the mat. For example, body fixations holding deep emotions are released, critical voices and frustrations emerge, anxiety about trying something new overwhelms, or harsh self-judgments about their performance happen.
You can’t adequately handle these in a 5-minute conversation after class.
After being professionally trained as a spiritual coach, these would be all opportunities to support the student off the mat in an Inner Presence coaching session. Coaching sessions can range from $75-$150 per hour.
You’ll have a means to stabilize and increase your income, and not have to exhaust yourself with adding more classes. This coaching is a new category of “privates” and can add a deeper value to your “privates” that nobody is doing! You can be the first in your area and distinguish yourself with this powerful modality.
Inner Presence Coaching is a 9-month course that equips Yoga Teachers with the right skills to take their teaching practice to the next level by offering spiritual coaching to students.
Beside stabilizing and increasing your income, after completing the 9-Month Inner Presence Coaching program you’ll:
- Be able to make deep and lasting contributions to your Students that are life-changing which means you’ll be fulfilling your purpose of contributing to people’s transformation.
- Create a buzz in your community about this new powerful modality you offer that will make you stand out because you will be giving so much more value to students that other teachers aren’t able to deliver.
- Cultivate more referrals because, once students experience these powerful sessions, they’ll be talking about them with friends both in and outside your Yoga community.
- Your spiritual coaching practice can feed your yoga teaching practice and your yoga teaching practice can feed your spiritual coaching practice.
- Experience deep and lasting transformations yourself as a way to support others to experience the same. (You can only go as deep with the students as you have gone with yourself.)
- Experience more inner spaciousness, self-connection, and self-care. (Self-care is often a challenge for those in helping professions.)
- You’ll have more choices and flexibility for generating income and which will renew or invigorate your passion for helping others.
One important aspect of the practice of yoga is becoming aware of what has been hidden in our bodies and minds. Jerry Donoghue has developed a beautiful and gentle technique for getting in touch with what’s below the surface, and in this sense, he’s a masterful yoga teacher. I’m grateful for the dimensions he’s helped me explore in myself and for his wise instruction on how to hold space for others in this way.
The 9-month Inner Presence Coaching training has been transformational for me personally and professionally. As a student in the program, I received numerous sessions from both my fellow students and from Jerry. These allowed me to realized the unconscious belief patterns I had about relationships and family.
I started the program as a single mom and finished the program engaged to a wonderful man and expecting a second daughter. It means a lot to me to now offer the same powerful coaching to people who are seeking more peace in their lives.
I have seen the profound impact the Inner Presence sessions have to help people effortlessly let go of repetitive cycles and patterns, unconscious limiting beliefs, and internal strife. It is exciting to see these same people, after just a few sessions, experience significant shifts that allow them to truly thrive.
Here are three reasons why this Inner Presence Program is the ultimate investment in yourself.
- The Math Makes Sense: After taking the 9-month course, if you start seeing just two coaching clients a week at $100 an hour, you’ll be making $800 extra a month…and those 8 hours won’t be taxing on your physical energy. You’ll make back your investment in just a few months. It’s really a no-brainer.
- Your Increased Level of Effectiveness: This program will support you in making deep, life-changing contributions to your students…which as you know, feels fantastic! The return on investment of your increased effectiveness is your students become long-time students and refer others to your coaching service and yoga classes.
- Your Own Personal or Spiritual Growth: You’re investing in your own personal/spiritual growth. You can’t participate in this program without a significant shift in awareness and seeing some long-standing challenges being transformed. Hard to put a price tag on the increase in peace, inner spaciousness, and self-compassion. All those gains will be passed on to your students.
You Will Thrive in This course if YOU…
- Know yoga is more than asanas and is a means for taking you on an inner spiritual journey to meet your true nature or pure awareness.
- Are willing to fearlessly explore and heal your unresolved pain (if any) as a means to experience more openness, clarity, and trust.
- Want to work with your students on a more comprehensive spiritual level so they can experience flow in their daily life.
- Feel things deeply and at the same time have a sharp mind that loves to learn new out-of-the-box methods and skills.
- Have an unexplained passion and motivation for helping others… as though it was second nature.
- You have a rich inner world and feel comfortable exploring your’s and other’s inner life.
- Want to make sure your support of others is from a spacious, neutral position instead of it being subtly ego-driven.
- Want to inspire the highest truth realization in yourself and pass that inspiration on to your students.
- Get excited about the healing power of pure presence and will actively work to purify your own.

Half-Day Kickstart Video Conference To Start The Program
This half-day video conference program will be the official start of the program on Saturday, April 16th, 2022. We’ll come together and get to know each other and create a safe container. We’ll also explore what is
20 Interactive Video Conference Group Learning Sessions
We will come together as a group via video conferencing. Groups sessions last 2 hours. The specific dates and times will be decided by the group and will work for everyone. These two hours group video conferencing sessions will be about teaching the core curriculum of 16 modules that will support you in becoming a professional depth coach.
We’ll also do Q & A time, and/or demonstrations of Inner Presence work. We will co-create an experiential learning environment that includes activities, exercises, demonstrations, practice coaching, handouts and more.
With each group video conference session you’ll receive:

andemotional connections practices.

3 Private Coaching Session With Jerry
These sessions will give you a sense of what your clients will experience in an Inner Presence session and reinforce what you are learning in the course. You’ll have an opportunity to use these sessions to give attention to anything inside that gets stirred up in the course or in your daily life. You can use them to do deep work on yourself.
As you are probably aware, the deeper the inner work you do with yourself, the deeper you can go with your clients. The more present you are to yourself, the more present you will be to others.
In fact, your effectiveness as an Inner Presence coach will increase exponentially when tending to your own challenges and opening up more space inside.
Ten Self-Paced Video Training Programs
These videos focus on a Relational Inner Map and give you a precise way to tease apart different aspect of the client that emerge in a session. These videos are packed full of useful information that takes people years to learn. Jerry has condensed and organized it all so that you can get the benefit of his years of study of in a very short time.
Once you internalize this information you’ll be poised to effectively contribute to clients because you’ll hear and see things you would have not otherwise heard or seen without the understanding of this Relational Inner Map. You’ll get the skills and confidence it takes to handle anything that comes up.
Look, you could spend 15 years of your life sifting through all the eastern enlightenment literature, the depth psychology modalities, and the compassion training as Jerry has done to come up with something equally effective, but why do that when he has done it for you already. You just need to plug yourself into the existing program and reap the benefits.
