School Mission and Approach:
Our mission is to foster a community of learning, while linking together ancient and modern day holistic health practices. We believe learning is a continuous process and recognize the need for convenient, affordable, quality and flexible programs that meet the needs of today’s student. Our approach of holistic health embodies these concepts:
- The body cannot heal if the mind and spirit are broken.
- The mind cannot heal if the body and spirit are broken.
- The spirit cannot heal if the body and mind are broken.
Online Holistic Health Certification Classes:
We recognize the need for convenience and affordability and therefore, we offer our certifications programs and single classes with options for online study. Technology is moving education in so many exciting directions and we would like to make KCFitnessLink a part of this trend. KCFitnessLink uses EDU 2.0 online classroom, a learning management system that students and teachers use to interact completely in an online environment. Course syllabi, lesson plans, resources quizzes, tests, audio-video files, news, forums, message boards and grades are found in one convenient location. Many students and teachers alike nationally praise the ease of use and generous resources available to students in comparison to other online learning management systems or online classrooms. Even live classes at KCFitnessLink may utilize the EDU 2.0 online classroom to provide a hybrid live class, online environment to enhance learning and facilitate student/teacher interaction.
