Financial Security

By building a foundation you will have guaranteed recurring income, leaving you free to focus on creating great classes and serving your students.  

Growing Your Business

You can add workshops, retreats and trainings to your offerings successfully and without the overwhelm of doing it alone.

Not getting the results you want is frustrating.
It’s often because of a lack of organizational skills, not knowing what steps to take next or a need for support from an expert in the field

Working as a yoga teacher can sometimes be lonely.
I have been there.
You can find yourself working 24/7 feeling over worked and burnt out

When you are self employed it can feel like you have to do it all yourself. You are afraid to set boundaries for fear of losing a potential student and you end up taking calls, emails and private messages at all hours of the day and night.
You check social media every few minutes (even though you don’t want to use it at all) and you find yourself wondering if it would be better to get yourself a “job”

Do you have have inconsistent numbers in class?

Do you find it hard to fill places in classes? More often than not students will say they are coming back but because they haven’t paid in advance they don’t show up. Do you notice that class numbers are constantly fluctuating so you never know how many people to expect each day?

Do you have uncertainty around what to offer?

Do you feel uncertainty around content for workshops or retreats? Would you love to know exactly what you should include to create a unique and memorable experience for participants? These worries can cause you to procrastinate around organising events and setting dates to move forward. You know it’s the next best step for you but uncertainty is holding you back.

Do you need to develop your teaching skills?

Learning teaching skills during teacher trainings is great but what you really need now is support expanding those skills in a practical way for the students in front of you. How can you use your knowledge to care for each student uniquely?

  • Module 18 – Creating a workshop that sells
  • Module 19 – Steps to filling workshop places
