After several years of development, we’re proud to release our training program which, we feel, is one of the most comprehensive of its kind in the world . . . .
We are here to serve and provide education for women who have awakened to the dire need for new paradigms of healing that are sustainable, affordable, and accessible to the masses.
At NaiAsa Institute, we recognize and operate from the following:
virtually all of the “problems” that show up in a person’s life (physical, emotional, mental, social, professional, romantic, financial) result from the same core imbalance
When harmony is restored at the root, healing will happen naturally in the periphery
the most common “root” imbalance in the modern world is energetic with yang energies dominating yin energies, resulting in a disharmonious flow of Sacred Feminine & Masculine (see diagram)
We believe that the balancing of these energies, coupled with clear vision, purpose & commitment inside of a loving community, people thrive with joy, ease & flow.
To be a NaiAsa Institute-certified coach, you must be able to demonstrate knowledge, presentation skills, mastery of flow foundations, applications of learned theories (e.g., Lokahi Medicine Wheel), facilitation skills, and create accountability and trust.
As a result of investing time, energy, and resources into this comprehensive program, women will not just be coaches . . . . they will be NaiAsa Institute Coaches which means they:
Are Healers, Spiritual Counselors, Priestesses, Educators, and Social Activists
Are certified yoga teachers and lovers of dance and creative movement
Have mastered theoretical AND experiential concepts of neuroscience & flow psychology
Have the equivalent of a Masters Degree that rivals the best of any programs out there
Have transcended the illusion of separateness that pervades society today
Are focused more on how people FEEL as opposed to how much they KNOW
See how the unlocking of the Sacred Feminine within each is a path to heal the planet
Cultivate harmony between science and spirituality, technology and nature, and yin and yang principles
We are only accepting 12 women for this inaugural training.
These fortunate women will be considered NaiAsa Institute’s “Founding Mothers” and conferred certain benefits that will not be available to anyone else.
The program, after the inaugural one mentioned above, will consist of 4 tracks starting with a Foundations layer which is the primary prerequisite for each:
Foundations (Core Competency)
Then one, a combination, or all of the following can be taken after:
NeuroSomatic Soul Coach™ Training and Certification
This combines methods from classical coaching with body therapy. Recent developments in neurobiology show how important it is to work in coaching and therapy not only with words but also with the body. The result is Neuro Somatic Coaching (NCS). In this work, body knowledge becomes an essential part of the change process for embodied leadership, living, and purpose.
NeuroSomatic Soul Coaching creates new ways of being through new ways of moving that re-wire the brain and nervous system, in a way that simultaneously releases trauma and old limiting pattern - reclaiming the wisdom of the body - making the intelligence of the body the biggest ally in living a life aligned with one’s deepest Truths and highest guides in making choices for the optimal health of one’s mind, body and soul.
Therapeutic Flow Arts
For professionals in therapy, health science, corporate coaching, and yoga, this program allows them to expand their practice to include flow movement specifically designed to unlock areas in the brain where traditional therapies don’t focus. Combined with modalities that touch the feminine side of each client, Therapeutic Flow Arts offers professionals a new pathway to healing & transformation that would be a powerful addition to their current practice.
NaiAsana™ Yoga Teacher Training
This yoga practice is a way for women to come home - to the heart, the body, and the soul. Female practitioners all over the world have felt disconnected to today’s popular flows which are too “masculine” - rigid, asana-based, linear, and rigorous. (It’s not surprising that the most popular, asana-based practices today came from Patanjali, a man.) For those practitioners looking for something to awaken the essence of the Sacred Feminine, then NaiAsana™ is the answer. With its cross-cultural, somatic practice weaving asana, dance, flow arts, and PLAY both on and off the mat, this Tantric vinyasa of spiral, rhythmic and cross-body movement patterns, often incorporating props such as poi or the hula hoop, powerfully restores and re-patterns the nervous system.
As a possible Founding Mother, you’re getting early access to these trainings. When you embark on the journey to being a NaiAsa Institute-certified practitioner, you’ll get access to ALL of these programs for a very SPECIAL exchange amount. In addition, we’ve arranged the curriculum in a specific way so it can be completed in a time frame that would also allow you to take on a role of educator or facilitator in a, near-term, future goddess journey or retreat.
The curriculum of each program covers 5 essential elements:
AIR (Science) - This element invites theoretical study and curious exploration to cultivate wisdom, inspiration, knowledge, intention, and clear vision. Candidates will devote scholarly study of and within the realms of neuroscience, cosmology, language & ancient philosophies (Koshas, Lokahi medicine wheel, etc.)
EARTH (Soma) - The Earth element roots the formless into form, and honors physical experience through all sensory systems as a crucial way of “knowing” and “discerning.” Candidates will learn how to create safe and strong containers for healing and embodied transformation to occur for themselves and for their clients. Before committing to this program, candidates are required to immerse into the experiential aspects of NaiAsa Institute principles by attending the full Beauty that Transforms retreat. The next retreat will be held in Bali on Mar. 1 - 11th, 2019. Details here.
WATER (Sacred FeminYinity) - According to many cultures, water is considered the most feminine/yin and the most powerful of all the elements. Water rules the realm of emotionality, sensuality, relationships, and the art of flow. Research has confirmed that relationship is more important for the healing journey than any techniques used by a therapist, psychologist, physician, counselor, and beyond. This is also the component that seems to get the least attention in most Western-based, health professional training programs. Because NaiAsa Coaches are also healers, candidates will cultivate those essential qualities of presence, playfulness, compassion, and beyond to cultivate nurturing relationships that naturally propel clients forward in a balanced, and organic, way.

FIRE (Soul Expression) - Fire is the element that ignites action and transformation. NaiAsa Coaches will be skilled in and committed to having their clients take action that is most importantly, aligned with purpose at the soul level. Candidates will have ample practice in mock coaching scenarios and will demonstrate their skills through various practicums throughout the training program. And yes, for those wondering, fire-dancing definitely plays a significant part in setting this program apart from any and all others.
SPIRIT (Seva) - Seva is the sanskrit word for “selfless service.” Seva is also an important key to sustainability in the new world. Conscious surrender and REST are the final vital parts of every learning cycle and necessary for integration and restoration. NaiAsa Institute has designed this training program (and all programs) to include both Seva and relaxed integration time as essential elements of not only the training, but also the bigger vision of NaiAsa.
Each phase, conference, or retreat mentioned below will have a mix of these elements contained within.
As mentioned earlier, this inaugural curriculum along with the benefits of being a Founding Mother, will only be offered to the 1st 12 women who join the program. After that, the 4 parts of the program will be separate and offered individually with their own exchange amount.

One aspect which makes this first training program for the Founding Mothers one of the most unique in the world is . . . . the participation in a conscious, stewardship exchange investment that continues to grow and make a difference.
Based on our research, the NaiAsa Institute is the 1st in this field to incorporate such an opportunity within its training program!

Lifetime designation of being an Honorary Founding Mother of NaiAsa Institute (beyond graduation you don’t have to do or pay anything more to hold this designation)
