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'm reflecting on 2017! A practice I've gotten into in all aspects on my life is to reflect on the previous year before I head into the new year. This is a great way to look at where you've been, how far you've come, and to help set goals for the upcoming year.

During the episode, I talk about where I've been, highlights and lowlights of the year, how M.B.Om and my business has grown, what I've learned and more. I also share what's on the agenda for next year, and a couple of upcoming offerings that I am very excited to be launching! 

Enjoy!

Gregory Ormson is a yoga teacher, writer, and a motorcycle enthusiast! On this unique episode of the podcast, Gregory and I chat about his story becoming a yoga teacher and what inspired him to create his signature program: Yoga & Leather.

Yoga & Leather is a unique offering based out of a Harley Davidson store in Arizona where Gregory teaches yoga to motorcycle riders. Gregory shares the links between riding motorcycles and yoga, including balance, mobility, and feeling relaxed while riding a bike that weighs so much more than you.

Gregory teaches at the Harley Davidson shop because this is a place where motorcycle riders feel comfortable. He does his best to make them feel comfortable in the setting, by allowing them to show up as they are. Gregory also teaches classes that are geared towards the muscles that are tighter from riding motorcycles and are geared towards people who don't normally practice yoga.

On this episode, Gregory and I discuss how to find a niche that you resonate with and how to pitch, market, and teach speciality classes to a very niche audience. 

Enjoy!

Dr. Ariele Foster is the founder of Yoga Anatomy Academy, and has been practicing yoga since a young age, as she has a grandmother who is a yoga teacher and practitioner. After living at the Kriapulu Institute as a seva, Ariele was inspired to become a yoga teacher and begin teaching. After suffering an injury, she decided to get her doctorate in physical therapy, and is now a practicing yoga teacher and physical therapist. 

On this episode, Ariele and I talk about some of the common wording that yoga teachers can shift to be more anatomically correct. We discuss the anatomy of the shoulders, lumbar spine, and the feet, amongst other things. Ariele and I also delve into the business of yoga and how to create a streamlined brand when you have more than one topic of interest!
