The below podcast is from the web site “Mastering the Business of Yoga“
This week on the podcast I am joined by Diane Bruni. Diane was the first female ashtanga teacher in Canada, a studio owner, a body worker, and now a teacher and practitoner of functional movement.
On this episode, Diane shares how she first got into yoga, what the yoga landscape was like 20-30 years ago, owning a yoga studio, what it’s been like shifting more towards functional movement, and what she’s learned throughout her career.
Business Lessons from this Episode:
- Word of mouth is the best way to get your name out there
- You can have a good website, but that doesn’t make you a good teacher – put your practice and teaching first always
- How the internet has changed the way we teach and practice
- How we can teach for different bodies and different age ranges
- Bringing more mobility into our yoga practice can help us to move in a less linear way
- Do as many activities and exercises as possible to have more diversity in the way that we move our body
- Take care of yourself first – you can’t help your students and build a career unless you’re feeling good in your own body
- And much more… Here’s the episode!
Teaching demos are something that you will need to do before getting studio jobs! They can scary and intimidating, especially when you’re first starting out. That’s why I’ve created a FREE teaching demo checklist to help you prepare. Download your copy here!
