As teachers, our most important contribution to our work is that we stay committed students.  We must seek out teachers, resources and communities that feed our work, our vision, our sense of integrity in all we do.  We must set time aside to study, observe, and create.  And, the reality is, that's sometimes hard to do.  In order to keep EVOLVING as teachers, we have to figure out our own unique way to juggle our home life, our social life, our work life and our creative life.  

In EVOLVING we get honest with where we're at right now, where we want to be in the future and we devise a clear path to get there.  This module is designed to help generate creative momentum, create accountability and solidify a sustainable work/life balance.  

In the module you will:

  • Delve into a conversation about the reality of the yoga industry (where it's at now and where it's headed)

  • Strengthen your skills as an entrepreneur including:

    • Marketing Your Business
      • Decipher how you can uniquely serve the community through Sankalpa practices
      • Refine your brand 
      • Gain a better understanding of possible marketing channels including social media, email and content based marketing
