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.

On this episode of the podcast, I am joined by Thai massage teacher and best selling author, Shai Plonski. Shai is the founder of the Still Light Centre, and has been teaching and practicing Thai massage for over 15 years.

Shai shares how he got into Thai massage, how he has grown his business, and how Thai massage can expand a yoga teacher's business offerings. We touch on how Thai massage can expand your offerings in privates, help you to become more comfortable offering adjustments in your regular classes, as well as how you can use Thai massage in your regularly scheduled classes (think head massage in savasana!). We also touch on how Thai massage gives you an opportunity for a new workshop offering, and how, overall, it can help yoga teachers make more money in a really fulfilling way.

I left this episode feeling inspired to learn more about Thai massage, and I hope you do too!

Enjoy!
