This week on the podcast I am reflecting on 2019! This is one of my favorite episodes of the year because I get to look back on where I traveled to, some of my biggest achievements of 2019, all the podcast episodes I recorded, how my business grew and changed, what I learned and so much more. Enjoy! 

This episode is brought to you in part by OfferingTree. When you’re a yoga teacher and you’re trying to build your digital presence it can be daunting.  First, you might need a website. There are a lot of great tools for building websites like Wordpress, Wix, and Squarespace.  Then you need a way to email your students.  Again there are tools for that like mail chimp and constant contact.  But that’s another account to pay for and a password to remember.  Then you need a way to schedule and register your students.  Again there are tools for that, but it’s another account to create and pay for and another password to remember.  Oh wait, how do I integrate my scheduling tool with my website… Arghhhh! Instead of putting all of this stuff off for another day because it’s too daunting, let me tell you about a better way.  OfferingTree set out to make creating your digital presence fun, easy and affordable. With one account you can create a website in minutes that has your schedule built right in.  They also have email marketing tools to collect email addresses, send newsletters and automated emails to your subscribers.

This week on the podcast I am joined by Theresa Berenato. Theresa is a corporate yoga teacher and the founder of Workspace Yogi, an online membership site. On this episode, Theresa and I talk about how her path as a yoga teacher has been unconventional in that she hasn't taught in yoga studios. Instead, she jumped right into teaching corporate yoga classes. She built her clientele up to a point where they requested that she started offering more classes, and instead of filling her schedule more full of corporate classes, she started building her business online. Now, she offers online classes and has a private membership site for her clients.

Theresa breaks down how she was able to build a corporate yoga business and an online yoga business, tips for anyone who is looking to build an online business or membership site, and much more!

This week on the podcast, I am joined by Uma Girish. Uma guides spiritually-minded women who are grieving from loss and helps them cope and hold space for grief. The work she does includes the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, illnesses, empty nest, the loss of a dream, and more. 

On this episode, Uma and I talk about the importance of giving yourself space when you are grieving a loss, and how to give yourself that space when you teach yoga or own your own business. As a contractor or self-employed individual, it is so hard to take time off, but when we are grieving, we need to give ourselves time and space to heal. 

Uma also shares tips for how we can hold space for students that might be grieving and more.

This week on the podcast I am very excited to be joined by Veronica Thai from the Curious Monki podcast. Veronica is not only a fellow podcast host, but also a fellow yoga teacher and Albertan! Veronica and I met a few years ago and have had the pleasure of spending time together in person, as well as doing some Desire Map coaching together.
 
One of the things that inspires me the most about Veronica and her business is that she does everything from a feeling perspective, rather than a thinking perspective. On this episode, we talk about her journey as a yoga teacher, starting a podcast, overcoming imposter syndrome, and how she came to run a heart centered business. Of course, she also shares business lessons that she learned along the way! 

Enjoy!

This week on the podcast I am joined by Jeremy Pollack. Jeremy is a psychologist/anthropologist and a leading expert in conflict resolution. His passion and mission are to help individuals and groups navigate both intrapersonal and interpersonal conflicts, and on this episode we tackle conflict resolution for yoga teachers. 
 
We dive into how to have tough conversations as a leader / business owner, as well as how to navigate challenges with coworkers, work on communication, and tips for dealing with challenging situations on a day-to-day basis. 

Enjoy!

They make pieces for everyday wear and beautiful pieces for all your events. The best part is that they are offering YOU a discount. Head on over to analuisa.com/mbom and treat yourself (because you're worth it!).

Are you a studio owner that’s working 16-18 hour days but still struggling to grow? OR Are you a well established studio with healthy monthly revenue, but membership growth has plateaued?
