BYA Yoga Coaching Program

BYA Coaching is a 35 hour training led by Rachel Tucker, Robin Housley and Wendy Brunke who are all passionate about doing the Lord’s work in helping people be TRULY transformed and renewed in their minds, as that is where the battle resides. We are totally centered on Jesus Christ.

BYA Coaches will be a community of believers on a mission to heal our world, to help people dealing with severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex, interrelational trauma…from military veterans to survivors of chronic abuse. We focus on healing the Mind, Body and Soul in simple yet incredibly effective movements infused with God’s Words to open the body to receive guidance and healing.

If God is inviting you to become a BYA Coach, He is inviting you into a deeper relationship with Him. You may not ever teach or coach a BYA class. This journey might be just for your own personal growth. It’s up to you to follow His leading.

Rachel’s passion for this came from her own trauma she experienced when her older brother committed suicide. Her greatest wound, is now her ministy.

What is BYA Coaching? It is a coaching program committed to training up disciples and survivor’s from shame and trauma, to help them ultimately heal and be FREE INDEED. John 8:36 The purpose is to help them re-establish the mind/body/spirit connection that was lost from a trauma, or shame. Through teaching the truth in scripture, to mindfulness meditation practice to a set of yoga postures that will impact their healing journey.
This is not a counseling program, rather a healing program using the tools the Lord gave us. The ultimate goal is to get them back in their bodies!
This program is for anyone who deals with anxiety, depression, addiction, suicidal tendancies, auto-immune diseases, or for anyone who has a heart for the people who carry that weight around. It may be a loved one. You may be a Yoga teacher, and want to add this to your class schedule. Either way, there is a real enemy out there who comes to kill, steal and destroy, and the end affect is trauma, which results in a disconnection with the Mind/body/spirit.

Through the use of worship music, mindfulness meditation and scripture, student’s are taught how to breath, mindfulness and movement can impact their healing journey.

This training will equip you to help walk other’s through healing psychologically and physiologically.
The program is science and Bible based, teaching how the Lord has always provided tools to help us heal from the enemies schemes. He made our brains plastic and has redeemed and given us hope through the tools of mindfulness and yoga.
Student’s will learn how to use and apply scripture into their classes and weave in a beautiful message to ensure a safe environment.

We use neuroplasticity and teaching mindfulness meditation and incorporate some yoga posture that will help re-connect the mind/body/spirit in a safe, effective way.

This training is 9 week home study that will end with a 3 day retreat. It is designed to teach awareness of the connection between how traumatic experiences and shame cause addiction’s, suicidal tendencies, anxiety, depression and a myriad of medical problems including auto-immune disease.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A YOGA INSTRUCTOR TO TAKE THIS TRAINING OR HAVE YOUR OWN BYA CLASSES. But, if you are an existing Yoga teacher, or a fitness instructor, this would be a great addition to your class schedule, especially if you have a heart for this type of mission.
If you are going to be teaching this class, you will need to complete a student teaching practicum.

WE ARE NOT COUNSELOR’S, BUT INSTEAD USE A CREATIVE AVENUE FOR FACILITATING AN ALTERNATE MODE OF HEALING FOR SURVIVOR’S OF TRAUMA. IT PROVIDES SPACE FOR STUDENT’S TO START TO FEEL AT HOME IN THIER BODIES, AND GAIN AWARENESS OF HOW TRAUMA AFFECTED THIS DISCONNECTION.
