This week on the podcast I am joined by Sytera Field from Episode 34! When Sytera and I first chatted back in the fall of 2016 she was teaching private yoga full-time and was not interested in studio ownership. Since then, she shifted into the role of studio owner, and opened up SyteraYoga at the beginning of January 2018.
On this episode, we talk about what shifted for Sytera over the last 1.5 years, what it took to open a successful studio, including hiring teachers, creating an inclusive community, a schedule that works, and more. Sytera shares what she's learned as a studio owner, the challenges of running a yoga studio, and how she finds the balance of being both a teacher, leader, and business owner.
