Begin Wellness training with the Wellness Module that follows your foundations month. For example, if you enroll in Coaching Foundations in January, you would begin Soma Habits in February. All modules are offered twice a year.

Soma Planning. Jan/July
Soma Habits. Feb/Aug
Soma Nutrition. March/Sept
Soma Finance. April/Oct
Soma Fitness. May/Nov
Soma Business Launch. June/Dec

You have one year to complete training so if you need to miss a month, you can take the module six months later. If you do not miss any months, training can be completed and certification earned within seven months.

During Zoom and webinar trainings you will also learn how to manage coassemble elearning courses with your clients. You will directly enroll your own clients into your courses with the ability to then interact with them through the elearning platform.

The Soma Business Launch Module includes training in coaching ethics, the coaching agreement, and marketing options and resources.

Wellness module starting point always follows foundations month.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I miss a Zoom call during training?
All group Zoom calls will be recorded for you to reference later. However, you must participate in at least two of the four Zoom calls monthly to achieve certification. 1 on 1 sessions with Dr. Kutsko or other Master Soma Coaches can be substituted for a missed call, at an additional cost.
Can I start any month?
You begin the first week of any month with Soma Foundations. This course provided the foundational coaching skills you will need for all the wellness courses and Life Coaching.

I welcome all experience levels to join this cohort, whether you are an established counselor who would like to expand your skills and eCourse resources or you have never coached before. I will cover all the basic foundational principles you need to get started in foundations module. Therapists will have opportunity to participate in advanced training modules working more specifically with treating trauma somatically. Coaches will not work directly with trauma treatment, instead they are trained to follow the body in present moment time. See Therapist Track page for additional options for therapist.
