Section Information for Spring 2017

This experiential learning course will teach students how to optimize their lifestyle and their well-being, and how to coach friends, family members, and clients to do the same. The 5-day course is held in a "day retreat style" in January, before the launch of the regular semester, to encourage students to start their new year in a more strategic, health-focused, self-actualized way.  Students will learn how to coach themselves, and others using the latest research in health communication, wellness coaching, and well-being science in order to improve  (1) their health, through healthy behavior adoption; (2) their wellness, through strategic stress management and lifestyle practices; and (3) their well-being, through movement and mindfulness exercises designed to enhance both the experience and the evaluation of their lives. Each day will include a gentle mind/body practice (hatha yoga, meditation, and/or mindfulness practices); a lecture on the day's topic (health, wellness and well-being); application exercises for bringing the day's topic into one's lived experience; and peer-peer coaching practices.  Students will complete the week with a strategic plan for optimizing their health, wellness and well-being for the coming year. Students also have the option (not required) to apply all 40 hours of this course towards certifications in: (1) Well-Being Coaching with the National Consortium for the Credentialing of Health and Wellness Coaches and/or (2) Yoga Teacher Training with the Yoga Alliance (RYT 200).  (3 credits: all ELs for NCC students’ purposes)
