How do I get the most from this course?

VISION- Begin asking yourself "what do I want? What's most important to me? What do I want my health and vitality for?

PLAN-Give yourself 30 min before the small group classes to review the slides for the week. Come to class ready to practice a mind-body skill and other key coaching skills.

DO- some of the suggested actions each week. This course builds on your personal vision, so this first step is where we start our efforts. Later you'll select a 2 month goal and then weekly SMART action steps.
