Teaching yoga (or dance or qi gong or whatever) is a wonderful offering of help and care from your heart. But you also need to make enough money to live if you've chosen your passion as a career. The truth is, it's possible to make a (good!) living doing these entrepreneurial things with a few basic principles and guidelines. Learn from my many mistakes and successes after nearly a decade running a yoga studio and making my own way as a yoga teacher. As it turns out, you can offer what you really care about doing and make money without losing your soul or spending all your time on social media--even in a competitive city like Vancouver. Let me share what I've learned works and what really doesn't.

This workshop is for new yoga teachers and for experienced teachers who want to learn to work smarter, not harder, and sustain themselves better in what they do. We will discuss possible paths for yoga teachers and how to figure out what you really want to do with your existing skillset. We will explore best practices for filling your classes, getting paid well, and building your career into something that can nourish and sustain you. These principles are specifically focused on teaching yoga, but the principles will be of benefit to anyone whose work is entrepreneurial in nature. This is not a yoga class; we will be sitting on the floor (with props!) mostly talking. Bring a journal.
