M.B.Om Podcast | Mastering the Business of Yoga

M.B.Om is a play on "M.B.A", and instead of learning about "administration" (whatever that is!), you will learn about the business of yoga. This podcast was designed for yoga teachers who want to create a successful and sustainable career in yoga, but don't know where to start, or how to take their career to the next level. Each episode features different, successful and inspiring yoga teachers who share their experiences in the yoga world, and the business lessons they have learned throughout their careers. Guests range from full-time yoga teachers, yoga studio owners, teachers who have branched off to create their own businesses, teachers who have developed their own teacher training, and much more.

Have you completed a YTT and feel like you want to do more with your certificate? Do you feel like you want to create your own brand of yoga or fitness? Believe it or not, it's a possibility, and Tara Newbigging is proof of that.

Tara has been a personal trainer, Zumba instructor and registered yoga teacher for nearly 15 years. A few years ago, she felt inspired to stop working in the confines of other people's rules and create her own. It wasn't until one day when she went into her fitness studio, turned on the music really loud, and began to move in any way that felt good that she realized exactly what she wanted to do. With that, BooTy was born.

On this episode, Tara shares about the creation of BooTy, growing her business, and the business lessons she has learned along the way.
