This week on the podcast I am re-joined by Lauren Rudick! Lauren and I first connected about a year ago to talk about her journey in becoming an international yoga teacher. Now, on this episode, we dive into creating and growing an international yoga teacher training program.
Lauren shares tips for how she's made Yoga Academy International successful so far, some of the struggles with filling programs, including the changing Facebook and Instagram algorithms, as well as what sets her training apart.
Charles Du is a NASA software engineer turned digital nomad turned yoga teacher! Charles discovered his love of yoga only a few months ago after suffering various injuries and quickly turned his love of yoga into his career.
Charles has experience in business and digital marketing, and on this episode, he shares how that has helped to land a resident teaching yoga within the first week of being a yoga teacher, and how he has been able to offer unique offerings, such as beer yoga. We talk about the controversy around beer yoga and how these types of offerings can be offered in an intentional way, as well as his tips for finding a unique offering that excites you.
On September 24th, Charles is launching the Yoga Career Summit, an online summit to help yoga teachers grow their business, and he shares what the process has been like for that, how he has found teachers, and what he has learned along the way.
