Donna added Professional Performance Coaching and Life Coaching after graduating from Erickson College's world renowned Art & Science of Coaching program (International Coach Federation certified!). Coaching puts the focus on the client's needs and adds value to instruction. There is no cookie-cutter, recorded training in the Spiritdance Method. It is always fresh, live and about you.
