Naturopathic Sports Nutrition Mentoring
As a practitioner and lecturer of Naturopathy, Nutrition and Sports Nutrition for over 25 years it is my great pleasure to also make available an online mentoring program that runs for 6 months that is available to final year students and practitioners of Naturopathy and Nutrition.
I am now in my 6th year of running online mentoring programs and am excited to announce my new format for a more in depth and interactive experience.
The success of these groups has seen me work closely together with people from all over the world including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Germany, Canada and the USA.
The next 6-month group runs June – November 2022.
Working with Kira has been the most valuable thing I have done for my business and myself all year. Kira is extremely knowledgeable in both sports nutrition and naturopathy, and her willingness to share this knowledge makes her the most incredible mentor. I always looked forward to our monthly sessions, and found that I came away not only with practical information to use with my clients, but also the confidence to do so. I can’t speak highly enough of Kira’s mentoring program, and would wholeheartedly recommend it to any practitioner looking to expand their knowledge. – Kate Johnston, Naturopath/Nutritionist
“After completing my degree I was very interested in performance nutrition, Kira’s mentoring was the obvious choice. The support, knowledge and confidence I gained was brilliant. With Kira’s knowledge and support I was comfortable in immediately providing nutrition recommendations for endurance athletes including a successful athlete who completed 31 marathons in 31 days – couldn’t have done with without Kira or her mentoring.” – Alethea Mills

About the Training
Each intake for this mentoring group is limited to 16 practitioners and students only.
There are 2 live training sessions held online via Zoom per month.
The first session of the month is a lecture on a specific topic in sports nutrition as well as questions during the lecture.
The second session of the month which occurs two weeks later is an in-depth discussion of the topic covered in the first session, as well as a case study or other tool to better understand the topic of the month.
I use Zoom for the video lectures as it allows for all participants to interact with each other as well as myself.
A private Facebook group has been created so students can chat throughout the training months and share resources, research, recipes that you may find. You might even like to ask specific questions about your clients too to get my feedback.
Audio, video and screen-share recordings of each training will be available for you to review or replay following each training session. I also provide lecture notes for your reference. All information will be available for you to access online and refer to at anytime on my membership site.
Join live lectures and Q&A mentoring calls with Kira Sutherland twice per month.
Get instant access to my library of sports nutrition resources, downloads, meal plans, additional videos and guides.
Connect with a community of fellow practitioners and ask me questions in between group calls.
Access all call recordings and course resources online at any time during and after the program.
“Kira’s mentoring is very informative and definitely worth the investment if you are interested in sports nutrition. She provides great resources and engages everyone in the mentoring sessions. You can envisage her as the ideal team captain both on and off the field!” – Kate S, Sports Nutritionist
“Kira is an outstanding mentor and educator in the area of sports nutrition. Her knowledge and training in this area is exceptional and she has a way of explaining and translating this information to her groups that is simple and practical using case studies and her own examples. You may want to specialise in Sports nutrition or just understand enough to support your current client base, I cannot recommend Kira and her programs more highly.” – Edwina Ekins
“I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this mentoring course! Loved it! Kira is engaging, passionate and knowledgeable and provides great opportunity for questions and cases.
I loved the sports specific information and feel so much more confident around this now, but one of the most valuable things about it for me was actually how well the nutritional information translates into treating recreational athletes, occasional exercises and the general population too.
And of course, given that my patients are primarily women, the information about cycle specific training and nutrition in the course was invaluable.” – Wendy Burke, Naturopath, Nutritionist, Herbalist

“The course content, monthly lectures, resources, and the way in which Kira presents is incredible, which is a reflection of Kira’s skills, knowledge, and experience in the area of Naturopathic Medicine and Sports Nutrition. I would describe Kira’s lectures to be interactive, interesting and overall an enjoyment to be a part of. The knowledge and information she presented was incredible, it was the science to how I had been personally playing with, when it came to my own health, fitness and performance. 6 out of 5 Stars!”
“I found this group not only extremely informative regarding sports nutrition, but I also found that she covered and discussed more up to date information then I have previously been exposed to. The subject matter was extremely relevant and covered a lot of gaps that I felt my degree did not go into detail about. The collaborative approach was excellent and the supporting platforms such as the Facebook page and the drop box have been great tools, even after completing the mentoring package. The group environment felt supportive not only from Kira but also the other members of the group and previous groups.
I would recommend Kira’s Sports Nutrition Mentoring group to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge in the field of Sports Nutrition, whether you are a Nutritionist, Trainer, or other Health Professional.”
Daniel Maughan, Clinical Nutritionist
“I’ve been lucky enough to take part in Kira’s sports nutrition mentoring program and would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to take their learning to the next level. Her knowledge and expertise is simply inspiring. The sessions were tailored to meet everyone’s needs and interests, as opposed to a set format, and as a member of the Facebook mentoring group we continue to have a place to ask questions and continue our learning beyond the program itself.” – Vanessa Briese
