Teach. Mentor. Lead.

Our Professional Training Program gives you all the tools to make that a reality.  

Does this sound familiar?

When it comes to women’s wellness, you love the topic.

You love the daily practices, reading about it, watching documentaries, and talking with your friends about it.

It seems wellness is a thread that’s been part of your life for a while.

You may have even studied health and fitness in some form or other.

Maybe you even have your own bodywork or health-related professional practice.


Dreaming about wellness? You’ve got that covered.


You have people in your life who depend on you – kids who need help with homework, a partner you support, and a home to keep up with.

In the course of a day, you wear a lot of hats and play many roles.

You need a way to move forward on a career path that gives you maximum flexibility in your time and schedule so you can prioritize all that's most important in your life. 

Welcome to the WellGrounded Institute!

Our Professional Training Program prepares women to become educators, mentors and leaders in women's wellness.

Our training program helps women pursue work they are passionate about without sacrificing flexibility or income potential.

  • You would love to share your passion for wellness with women who need to hear the message and learn the tools that will help them live calmer, healthier, more energized lives.
  • You want to be the trusted expert. The sharer of resources. The inspirer who catalyzes them to take this knowledge and let it infuse every inch of their lives with connection and meaning.
  • You love being on your own self-care journey, as messy and imperfect as it often (okay, usually) is. But you know there’s a little voice that keeps whispering to you, clueing you in from a deep part of yourself, that there’s still something missing.

You long to serve in a more profound way. You want to work with women and help them discover their vision of a more fulfilling life.
  • And you also want the freedom and flexibility in your time and schedule to prioritize your family in exactly the ways you want to.

Or maybe…

  • You already are working in the wellness field, and you want to open up new ways to serve your community and increase revenues without investing hundreds of hours creating new material and content.

If doing meaningful work while making a great income is your right next step… You’re in the right place.

Professional training that educates, equips and readies you for a career in women's wellness, on your own terms.


What if your work actually helped you take better care of yourself and experience more energy and vitality, too?


What if you did what you love, what lights you up, and what you're really good at -- without having to sacrifice making your family your top priority?


What if you could make great income while having a hugely positive impact in women’s lives?

Message from Lisa, Founder/Director

Hello and Welcome!

I’m Lisa Grace Byrne and I’m the founder and director of WellGrounded Institute.

I created this training program specifically to support women have a clear pathway to doing work they love that taps into their natural gifts and skills, and has the potential for fantastic income with tremendous flexibility.

In short, I created the training that I most needed when I was a new mom, shifting out of my career to prioritize my time at home but still wanted to have a viable avenue to contribute my gifts, impact others and earn income.


"The WGI's training program provided a clear roadmap for how to translate what I love doing more fully into my life and work."

Frequently Asked Questions

This is one of my favorite questions because in the world of health, wellness, and coaching there's a lot of confusion as to what different training programs offer and prepare you to actually do upon graduation.

Traditionally, when you become licensed to use material through a training program you are required to retain that brand when you promote any services using those materials.

This is not the case with the WellGrounded Institute Professional Training Program.

You are licensed to use all the materials provided in the Teacher's Guides under your own unique brand, class name, and business title.

The only requirement is that any direct use of the materials in full or in part must be properly cited back to this program.

This means you must retain a footer citation (or in-text citation) that credits the teaching material as authored by Lisa Grace Byrne, MPH and/or as part of the WellGrounded Institute.

This is simply a gold-standard way to properly credit information and material from its source.

For those who enroll in with the FULL pay option, we will send you the full training manual print version to your home at the start of the program.

For those enrolled via the payment plan, all materials are available digitally. They are fully downloadable for you to save and print at your convenience.

Upon enrollment, you will be sent a Program Agreement. You must sign and return this program agreement (which is done electronically) before you can begin the training.


In order to graduate and receive a certificate of completion of the program (sent hard-copy in the mail to you), you must successfully complete all modules, finish the final project, maintain good standing with the program through appropriate codes of conduct (read: being a respectful community member), and have paid your tuition fee in full.  

The WellGrounded Institute program is a non-refundable investment.

Every training class has a limited number of seats to allow for a small-group learning and mentorship experience and for each participant to feel well-supported with personal attention throughout the program.

When you sign up a seat is reserved for you.

But while this is a non-refundable enrollment, it is not high risk.

The largest concern participants have when signing up is the worry they will not be able to complete the graduation requirements within the 11 month program period.

We understand this completely. Life happens and sometimes we need more time to see through a commitment than we previously thought we’d need.

Here’s how we’ve designed the program to take the time-risk completely out of the picture.

1. This program is designed so that you can consume the material with maximum flexibility.

  • After a module and its materials are released you can access them at any time that works best for you. Some participants keep up with the work weekly, others reserve time once a month to review and engage in the materials in larger chunks. Many will allow their own life schedules to dictate when and how they will continue working through the program materials.
  • Every participant has up to 3 months after the graduation date to complete all the necessary assessments for the program certification.
  • All materials are downloadable so you can save the materials as part of your own lifetime library of resources.

2. If “Life Happens” early on, you can defer to a future training class.

  • If necessary, within the first 3 months after enrollment, you can request to defer your enrollment for a future training class that begins within one year of your original enrollment date.
  • In this way, you can participate in a future training class and receive the ongoing support of that class’ training period if something unforeseen happens within the first 3 months of your original enrollment date that will not allow you to fully participate and benefit from the mentorship support throughout the program year.

If you’re considering enrolling, I'd love to invite you to do a Discovery Exchange with us! 

This is a simple process to explore if this program is a right fit for you. 

To begin, you can request a Discovery Exchange link by emailing our team : [email protected] 

We'll send you a link to a form with a few questions to help us get to know you better - as well as space to share any of your own specific questions. 

Once you submit the form, our director, Lisa, will read through it and respond with a personal video back to you. 

She will share how our program may (or may not) support you in your own vision of working in women's wellness as well as answer any questions you've asked and help clarify anything you need more detail on. 

This is not a high pressure exchange. 

Our program is built around mentorship so it's just as important to us that the right women enroll as it is to you! 

To get started simply request a Discovery Exchange link by emailing our team: [email protected] 


The Win-Win Perspective

There seems to be three competing needs vying for our focus all the time-

~the care of our families,

~the care of our own well-being and

~our inner need for personal growth and purpose.

For a while I believed they were all on opposite teams fighting it out on a daily basis.

Until a different truth emerged.

Meaningful work was an essential part of what makes me feel whole.

My work, my self-care, and my capacity to be the mother I wanted to be -- they weren't competing needs.

They were on the same team. 

The real issue, I found, is that outdated ideals around what a career path had to look like kept me feeling hemmed in. 

When I decided I was going to define, for myself, what my work was going to look like - everything changed. 

If the idea of working as a women’s wellness educator lights something up within you, but you fear saying yes to a new career path will require more time or energy than you have, I’m here to show you how you can make this work for you and your family.

And I would absolutely love to give you the specific tools, resources, education and support to help you do it.

That’s why I’ve created and designed this truly comprehensive program, which gives you everything you need to create a sustainable, prosperous business rooted in science-based wellness education.

You don't need to reinvent the wheel to have a standout business.

You can have a thriving business that supports you, your family, and your vision for women’s wholeness and wellness in the world.
