As an MBA with 14 years of business experience and an experienced yoga and meditation teacher, I put together a training course to provide business know-how to yoga teachers.
Why, you may ask?
Teacher training programs need to spend most of their time on yoga training. They have very little room in the curriculum to help new teachers craft a business in the yoga and wellness space, though this skill set is extremely important for yoga teachers who want to earn at least part of their living from teaching.
Consequently, new yoga teachers often find themselves fresh out of teacher training and right into a chicken-and-egg scenario: they can’t get a teaching gig because they don’t have experience teaching and they can’t get teaching experience without a teaching gig. This programs fills that gap in more ways than one.
A kit to craft your mission statement, find your market, write a one page business plan, and put together a course of action for your first year as a teacher to reach exactly the kind of student you want to teach. Price – $25
Everything in option 1 plus Skype sessions to walk you through the kit as well as give you advice and resources to set up your business: how to incorporate, taxes, basic accounting, expense tracking, and marketing assistance including basic website set up. Price – $200
Everything in options 1 and 2 plus in-person sessions with me, a regular teaching slot in the Compass Yoga teaching roster to start earning their hours toward the Yoga Alliance 500-hour certification teaching requirement, tracking of teaching hours in Yoga Alliance format, and a selection of other goodies to help jump-start a new business. Price – $500
