What kind of impact will YOU create?

Welcome to 


An intimate, 5-month training specifically for teachers, trainers, and educators who want to shift from controlling the conversation and having all the answers to facilitating genuine transformation by supporting clients as they make their own choices and chart their own path.


You find purpose in your work as a teacher, trainer, or educator, but you feel called to serve in a more significant way, and you’re ready to take intentional action. 


You’ve had breakthrough moments with clients that have ignited a SPARK in you, but you can’t help but feel like you’ve only hit the tip of the iceberg.

You’ve realized that traditional teaching methods limit your ability to truly connect and listen to the people in front of you and you want to show up for your clients and students on a deeper level, but you keep missing the mark and you're realizing that coaching is the missing link.


You have the power to touch people deeply and leave your mark on the world!

You are powerful as a teacher, and you get results. Yet, you can’t help but feel like you’re just skimming the surface and missing out on opportunities to facilitate real change in the lives of your students and clients. 

The REAL distinction between teachers who cover content and deliver a predictable, prescribed experience and transformational COACHES who support their clients as they find their own answers, make their own choices, and blaze their own path?

While Teachers…

  • Call all the shots

  • Give advice from their own experiences and expertise

  • Are responsible for instruction, content, and dictating every learning experience

  • Feel the need to have all the answers, all the time. 



  • Listen deeply to their clients instead of talking at them.

  • Hear wants and needs instead of giving blanket advice.

  • Support, advocate, and entrust instead of tell, educate, and show

  • Understand the innate wisdom of their clients instead of feeling the need to control the situation or decide the outcomes.

Being a coach is about realizing you don't have to solve everyone's problems or have all the answers. In fact, the best coaches know their clients already have the solutions; it's simply a matter of unearthing them.


I’ve been there

As a yoga teacher and college instructor, with decades of experience, teaching was my comfort zone. I knew what to do, what to say, and how to say it. Teaching became second nature. 


Lather, rinse, and repeat. 


And while I was able to create consistent, predictable experiences for my clients, I realized my teaching methods weren’t offering the results I was looking for. I didn’t actually WANT to create these cookie-cutter experiences, one after another!


Sure, my students and clients were learning and receiving information, But I realized what served one person couldn’t possibly serve every person.  

Something didn’t feel right.

I had gotten so wrapped up in sharing and covering content and controlling the narrative that I lost sight of the big picture: Helping people achieve a unique transformation. 


I realized I was only scratching the surface and that in order to see my clients and students through a full and genuine transformation, my methods would need to change.

So, I took a leap of faith and LET GO of control.


Everything in me pushed back at first! My logical mind craved the structure and predictability I had come to know through systematically delivering content. But my inner voice was craving a deeper connection that would facilitate growth on a much larger scale.


Once I stepped out of my role as teacher and into the role of coach, the magic I had been longing for kicked in!  


I learned that

  • I don’t need to have all the answers (nor SHOULD I) because every client’s truth is different. 

  • I could trust my clients because they already had the solutions within them.

  • My expertise could serve as a TOOL, not the be-all-end-all. 

  • My job wasn’t to TELL or push my opinions. My role was to simply to help them excavate the choices, decisions, and beliefs that were right for them.


This SHIFT liberated me and quickly made everything in my work easier, simpler, and more impactful! I successfully let go of the reigns and handed the control BACK to my clients.


That’s how I know YOU CAN DO IT TOO.



Imagine 5 months from now…

→ Moving with your clients as they go through a whole transformation.

→ Fully meeting the multiple needs of your clients

→ Coaching your clients to surpass their own expectations and achieve things you could never teach them to do. 

→Showing up to coach with confidence and ease instead of leaning on your expertise, curriculum, and content as a crutch.

→ Knowing precisely what to listen for and which strategic questions to ask.

→ Cultivating all of the skills and tools you need to make magic happen when working with clients and participants.

It is time to flip off the teacher switch and ignite the coaching switch!

Becoming an Impact Coach is about…


→ Learning science-backed principles to balance your intuition with critical thinking (no pseudo-science here!)


→ Using a proven framework so you can coach the PERSON, not the PROBLEM, and hold space for clients as they gain clarity, create choices, establish commitments, and determine directed action for themselves.


→ Being a professional and showing up to coach knowing you are completely prepared to create a safe and supportive space for you and your clients.


It’s also about consistently practicing these skills with regular opportunities for mentorship, guidance, and support.

"I took this training after I walked away from yoga studio ownership, where teaching yoga and yoga trainings was my primary job.  My biggest win from this training was getting clear on my why for coaching. as I transitioned from yoga teacher, and who I want to coach and be for. Gina is an excellent mentor. She is your biggest fan and yet not afraid to challenge you to grow and meet your own goals. Walking away from ICT I feel confident, clear and prepared."

Meet Your Coach

Gina Ward 

Business Mentor & Coach Trainer 


When I first started my coaching business, it took me a while to realize that teaching and coaching were two completely separate skill sets with entirely different goals. 

Something in me SHIFTED when I reconnected to my personal purpose that drives my work today. I paired my expertise in yoga, medical research, business, and education with science-backed coaching frameworks to help facilitate growth, advocacy, and confidence in the lives of my clients.

I learned to TRUST myself,  my clients, and our collective inner wisdom.

Through trial and error, extensive practice, and ongoing professional development, I've learned a lot about what not to do as a coach. I’ve learned to balance teaching, coaching, and facilitation.


Now, I get to share my experiences and methods with you, so you don’t have to wait to create the impact your community needs.

Today, this passion has evolved into a coaching practice where I help leaders who have a strong desire to create and lead businesses, programs, and trainings rooted in purpose and full of vision! 

I’m bringing all my skills, training, and experiences to help you SHIFT from lecturing teacher to the responsive, results-driven coach you’ve always dreamed of becoming!

“ICT is one of the most impactful programs I have taken. The depth of content Gina delivered and what I learned blew me away.”


I knew there was a lot to coaching, and I didn't realize just how much until this training. There is so much intention behind the way we coach, and Gina helped me discover how to best do this in my own unique way."
