Our Faculty

We’ve assembled a unique collection of the most inspiring and renowned professionals in health & wellness.

A collection of 21+ of the world’s top doctors and wellness experts that you won’t find all together, in one program, anywhere else.

Unlike traditional health coaching programs, which are taught in their majority - if not entirety - by one, or a handful of instructors, we provide diversity of perspective in order to ensure you’re equipped to work with patients across a variety of backgrounds, conditions and belief systems.

This is why we are so proud to bring the best experts together - and to you.
