Opening up opportunities for specialists like dieticians and nutritionists by becoming Viegyan Certified Lifestyle Coaches
Viegyan Academy, the wellness education division of Bengaluru-based startup Vieroots Wellness Solutions, will train and certify 1000 Certified Lifestyle Coaches within a year. Already, 215 candidates have successfully completed the course in this sunrise field.
Viegyan Academy launched the Certification Programme in Lifestyle Coaching, accredited by the Indian Association of Functional Medicine (IAFM) and designed by doctors specialised in preventive or functional medicine, in 2022.
The global online coaching market size was valued at around $1.938 billion and is projected to reach $4.567 billion by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 13.4% during the forecast period, 2022–2030. The growth is attributed to increasing demand for virtual training services and online coaching platforms.
Today, people in India have access to personalised lifestyle modifications, which have been the real game-changer in the “wellness and prevention” domain in developed countries like the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Japan and South Korea.
This innovation is opening up opportunities for specialists like dieticians, nutritionists, doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, ayurvedic doctors, alternative therapists, yoga teachers, meditation coaches and counsellors to take their practice to the next level by becoming Viegyan Certified Lifestyle Coaches.
This course is delivered completely online, and Viegyan’s past student profiles were mostly from metros, and tier 2 & tier 3 cities, where more people have the propensity to be affected with lifestyle diseases, and are more concerned about their wellness and peak performance.
The duration of the course is two months, in which the candidates will get access to the online content of the course. There are practical sessions which start from the second month onward during which they will be exposed to real-life case scenarios.
