Building Community that Supports Yoga Teachers and their Business
Limited Capacity seats available

Community is the heart of a yoga business, both for the teacher and the studio. Teachers, students and staff unite to create a network of relationships that require trust, connection and respect. Creating a healthy community and strong community bonds can make your teaching and your yoga business flourish. So, how do you do this successfully? How you do determine who your current and target community is? How do you deal with dysfunction in your community? On what grounds do you connect with your community? Join Lynann Politte for this interactive lecture, and get answers to these questions and more. We'll start by walking through the process of self-discovery, wherein you'll lay out a picture of your ideal community. Then we'll discuss steps and tips toward building that community. See how cultivating community is a win/win/win situation for you and your students/staff, and explore the practical and creative tools for creating a space that becomes the yoga home for all who work and practice there.

Business Basics for Yoga Teachers
Limited Capacity seats available

Many yoga entrepreneurs and professionals excel at what they do: create opportunities for students to improve their health and well-being. But, many times, it ends there. They have no idea about how to establish the foundation of their business, as well as, how to take it out into public. The goal of this workshop is to give the attendees enough information so that they can take their unique gifts out into the world to improve the lives of others. And in doing so, they can realize their own personal and financial well-being. Material covered will include the basics of business; business plan, finances, marketing, websites, print materials, social media and organization.
