Victoria Hawkins, Joeel and Natalie Rivera

I am Victoria Hawkins and I will be your guide through this yoga teacher training / yoga life coach certification. I have my Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work, which I received in 1997 and I’ve been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2001. I am a Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor since 2008. I now hold the distinction of being an experienced, registered yoga instructor through Yoga Alliance and I have even created my own 200-hour Hatha Yoga teacher training program. I also hold certifications and trainings in Radiant Child Yoga, Shaman Informed Yoga and Yoga for Traumatic Brain Injury. I have been working in mental health and life guidance since 1997. I discovered yoga in 1999 looking to stay flexible and I fell in love with how it began to ease my mind and bring more balance to my life. I began studying the practices of yoga poses, meditation, breath work and mantras. I soon began sharing these concepts with my clients as I saw the value of living a lifestyle of yoga.

This course is brought to you by Transformation Academy and instructors Joeel & Natalie, who are life coach trainers with over 500,000 students at the time of this recording. They are excited to have collaborated with instructor Victoria Hawkins to bring you this Yoga Life Coach Certification.

Frequently asked questions

Approximately 15 hours including video lectures and independent completion of worksheets (both required).

Life coaching is a non-regulated industry, so there is no license or degree required. There exists no official accrediting institution or governing body in the life coaching industry. There may be organizations that claim to be an official or legal accrediting body; however, this is false. Therefore, anyone can coach based on their own level of comfort with their chosen training and/or past relevant experience. As long as you are not going outside the scope of coaching, such as practicing therapy (for mental health, for instance) you are free to coach as you wish! It is recommended that any coach who is concerned regarding this matter seek advice from his/her state. Life coaches must be aware of and strictly adhere to the appropriate role of a life coach. Life coaches are not licensed mental health care providers or therapists and must not provide medical advice, engage in patient diagnosis, or treat mental illness or trauma. Also, former therapists may receive legal consequences for practicing as a “life coach” while conducting therapy.

No, we are NOT affiliated with ICF (International Coach Federation) or any other life coaching association. We are an independent Life Coach Training Organization. Contact hours, meaning live interactions between an instructor coach and the student, is required for ICF approved programs. We do not wish to include contact hours in our programs because we believe our students enjoy the self-paced, virtual nature of our training programs and the opportunity to receive high quality education at a great price. Also, requiring contact hours would greatly increase the fees we would need to charge for our programs, making them out of reach for many of our students around the world. We believe in the democratization of education, not creating unnecessary red tape and costs.
