WHAT WE DO FOR PROFESSIONAL COACHES
Welcome to the Physical Intelligence Institute, the world's leading expert resource and community of people interested in the development, sharing and application of Physical Intelligence ... a place where EveryBodyKnows ... a community of pioneering, adventurous coaches and leaders - practicing Physical Intelligence and/or learning how to apply the techniques and the theory of Physical Intelligence to their coaching and people transformation activities ... a place to share all the best "how tos," insights, research, technologies, practices, experiences, and resources ... a place to continue to develop and share the Physical Intelligence pedagogy ... a place to share and celebrate the amazing ability of our bodies. The Physical Intelligence Institute is a place to provoke, raise standards, and translate this work to help people achieve more, stress less, and live more happily.
In addition to all of the above, the Physical Intelligence Institute offers professional coaches (independent and working within corporations) a Physical Intelligence Certification - a blended learning experience of instructor-led and self-directed modules, as well as a group work with a community of coaches who are engaged in the same journey toward a deeper understanding of Physical Intelligence and application of Physical Intelligence techniques in order to enrich their client work and their own lives.
Physical Intelligence is the ability to detect and strategically manage the chemistry of the body to unlock enhanced performance – strength, flexibility, resilience and endurance. It is therefore a fundamental element for coaching. There are hundreds of chemicals (neurotransmitters and hormones) with familiar names such as Testosterone, Cortisol, Serotonin, Oxytocin and Dopamine, racing through each of our bodies and brains, in our nervous system and bloodstreams. Those chemicals largely dictate how we think, feel,
speak and behave. Yet, most of us operate at the mercy of those chemicals – experiencing reactions, emotions and thoughts without realizing that we can strategically influence them. The body is therefore a hugely underexplored and underutilised source to improve performance and our ability to change. And therefore of huge value for coaches to understand and tap into. By working with techniques such as breath, movement and visualisation and changing the chemistry of the body, you can access improved levels of performance and unlock your client’s ability to transform. Over 100 techniques routed in science and underpinned by over 175 pieces of research.
Whether you already work with the body, or whether this is a completely new area for you, this course will take you step by step through the fundamentals to give you the confidence to work more with these techniques and deepen your practice.
The Physical Intelligence Certification is a seven-week blended learning experience organised as follows:
