Our SwellRetreat coach is a NeuroLeadership Institute Results Trained Coach, and brings the Results Coaching System™ Brain Based Coaching methodology, tools, and affords a window into creating a balanced and healthy mind, leading to more resilience and well-being in your life in general.  Participants will be guided through exploring personal vision, values and purpose, and jump starting goals and actions through one-on-one coaching sessions.  This holistic experience allows participants to integrate their surfing, yoga, and mindfulness experiences, insights and learnings throughout the retreat, and apply them back at home, in both personal and professional aspects of their lives.
