Yoga and Coaching 

A personal way to develop healthy habits

This page is for yogis and yoginis, who want to go beyond the practice of asanas, pranayamas, and short meditations. It is for those who understood that yoga is one of the powerful tools to mobilize your potential and resources to become the person you want to be. 


Today an increasing number of yoga students use coaching to advance on the pursuit of personal development. With the support of a coach, a specially trained professional, they create a clear view of the ultimate goals and the steps to reach them.  


Coaching helps to access your creativity, your experience, and re-evaluate available recourses. With the help of the coach you discover and let go of any limiting beliefs that you may have about yourself that might hold you back. 


On the other hand, yoga develops self-awareness and discipline. That enables you to stay focused on pursuing the path you have discovered during coaching so that you follow through and do everything it takes to reach your goals.   

The best way to see how it may work for you is to have an informal conversation with a coach, often called a discovery session. The session takes around 30-40 minutes. During it, the coach and the coachee learn about each other, exchange views about yoga and coaching, and about specific challenges that the coachee has. The coach shares his or her perspectives on how coaching and yoga can help with a given problem.


The outcome of the discovery session can either be an agreement to work together or the realization that the combination of yoga and coaching is not suitable for this problem. In the case of the agreement, the client can select one of the coaching programs or have the coaching sessions scheduled according to an individual plan.

Alex Balashov, Erickson Academy certified life coach and certified yoga teacher (RYT 200), will support you during your transformational journey.
