Training For Wellness Practitioners, Trainers, and Fitness Coaches

by Pat Henry, Founder of Organic Stretching®


How do you feel at the end of a full day? Is your body tired and burned-out trying to help everyone else feel great? How would you like to help others and yourself at the same time?

Do something wonderful for you and your clients as an Organic Stretching Qualified Coach. This program may be the opportunity you are looking for to inspire your clients and boost your business with something truly different.

Organic Stretching’s gentle movement system offers the ideal complement to give you a well-rounded practice or studio line-up. It answers the needs of potential clients looking for a genuinely alternative approach, something completely different, that will inspire them to build a personal program that is uniquely theirs, suited to their bodies where they are today.

Following the Organic Stretching Seven Steps process created by Founder, Pat Henry, they will thank you for helping them find the body they used to live and

  • restore their flexibility,
  • reduce their pain,
  • improve their balance and
  • develop a practice to keep them fit and moving for the rest of their lives.

Let Pat’s Organic Stretching students tell you how it worked for them…and while you are there, enjoy the natural sound effects from her tropical, Mexican studio…the same studio we will be using for this workshop!!

Join Pat Henry and your fellow trainees, January 13 – 17, 2014, at her studio in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Mexico, near Puerto Vallarta, on the Bay of Banderas. This will be your first step toward certification in a unique and exciting program, providing something truly different and highly effective to your clients.

This workshop was fantastic! Pat goes all out to meet the needs of her students. The setting is beautiful- a garden paradise with hummingbirds and colorful flowers set the background for the inviting studio. It was so sweet to sit under an outdoor palapa for lectures. Pat’s classes thoroughly prepare you to understand the principles of OS, explore your personal work, and practice leading other students through the movements and principles. You will learn inspirational ways to develop a business that comes from your heart and come away with a deeper understanding of how we can help our bodies heal. –Tamara M

Organic Stretching Teacher’s Training gave me a new direction in life. It felt that the class helped me to create a flowing and more organic living in every area of my life. My whole body was like new after the 5 days course. I feel this is the new revolutionary wellness technique which I would love to help to bring to the world. I also think it is important that young people start to take care of their bodies as early as possible, then there will be no health problems later in life. It adds to the quality of life. I recommend the regular classes and the teachers training to everyone who is ready to have fun and explore their own bodies, like little children do, and improve their health as a result. Thank you Pat and everyone who participated. It was amazing! –Crystal RL

Professional recognition for Organic Stretching and Pat Henry

“…a dynamically exploratory invitation to sculpt your own yoga and to develop the strength and flexibility that are unique to you.  Well thought-out and innovative examples of stretching movements are, of course, presented (with aesthetic beauty, I would add), rich ideas for getting started in the evolving of your own personal practice.  But more importantly than that, Pat’s purpose is to lead you beyond the imitation of asanas and protocols, into an organic unfolding of your own body’s needs and capacities and your own individualized path to vitality.  Very like Trungpa’s groundbreaking Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism in spirit and intention, “Organic Stretching” cuts through imitative discipline and opens the door to the celebration of your own idiosyncratic being and its expression–like no other’s–in your own joy of movement and self-development.”                                 

–Deane Juhan… Author of Job’s Body: A Handbook for Bodywork
