This week on the podcast I am joined by Hope Zvara. Hope is a yoga teacher, a motivational speaker, a best selling author, a yoga studio owner, the CEO of Mother Trucker Yoga, and so much more. On this episode of the podcast, Hope and I talk about how yoga pulled her out of a dark place personally, how she started teaching yoga, and what inspired her to open a yoga studio. We also dive into knowing your value as a yoga teacher, and why the money side of yoga is important. Of course, Hope and I dive into the business lessons she's learned through owning a yoga studio, as well as how she's been able to take her yoga business online and tips for people who want to do the same. 

This episode was super fun to record and is jam-packed with valuable information! 

Enjoy!

This week on the podcast I am joined once again by Sytera Field. When Sytera joined me on the podcast back in 2016, she was only teaching private yoga. In 2018, she opened her studio, SyteraYoga, and hasn't looked by since then.

On this episode, we talk about what has shifted for Sytera's business over the last 1.5 years, what she has learned as a yoga studio owner and more. We also talk about her latest endeavor, which is developing the Nadi Ball and the Nadi & Nice method of body rolling. After many years of teaching yoga with massage balls, Sytera decided to develop her own, and she also shares the long and challenging process of developing your own product, including the business lessons she's learned along the way.

Enjoy!

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. 

Enjoy!
