Seeking the secret to success?

We train to teach yoga, not to sell it! Studies show that 80% of teachers feel like they are falling short in terms of business. Despite working hard, supporting your students and loving teaching, it's not working financially. In turn this affects your confidence, and the more you question yourself, the harder it is to sell what you do. It's a slippery slope. 

You're not alone! We are totally inspired to support you to thrive as a yoga teacher. I have spent my life developing so much expertise in yoga training and now I want YOU to be able to reach far and wide with your offerings. I am here for it. Are you?!

This course is designed to give you all the tools you need for business success, in a language that makes sense to you and works for your specific business. We'll give you the confidence to share what you've got, the knowledge to find your people and the skills to communicate it effectively so you too can make a living doing what you love!

Let's make a healthy living out of authentic yoga!

With step-by-step guidance and support from those who have been there before, this course will enable you to connect with your mission, define what you want to achieve, find your people and communicate what you can offer. We will be sharing insights from 25 years of yoga teaching, 15 years of running a studio and 20 years of marketing expertise.

Course contents

The course¬†follows a 6-step plan, taking you through from start to ‚Äėsell‚Äô.¬†It is suitable¬†for teachers just starting out, those early on in business and those wanting to do a review of an established business. You can also use steps in isolation to re-visit areas of planning or just the resources in Step 6, which¬†cover the individual marketing tools in detail.

Step 1: Set your intention

Yoga is one of the most adaptable businesses - we can take our skills abroad on retreat or into the boardroom of big companies! Let's be clear on the options and outline everything you need to know to shape your yoga business. We cover yoga business tools and strategy options for long term success, then help you defne your own business mission and goals.

Step 2: Understand your market
We help you to take a market focused approach, for greater success, giving you the tools to research and understand your available market and where you might fit in. Define who and where your potential students are by understanding your current situation and your competition. 

Step 3: Define your brand

The more clear the vision, the easier others can see you and the quicker it becomes reality. We help you clarify what your business (brand) values are, what makes you and your offering unique and how to consistently communicate this to attract the students who need what you have to give.

Step 4: Match your offer to the market

Discover the exact methods to match what you offer to the audiences with the best potential to help you achieve your goals. We put together your mission, market and brand to establish how you can make your vision a reality and show you how to shape what you are offering for maximum success.

Step 5: Make a business and marketing plan  

Success starts with a strategy and an achievable plan. We explore all of the marketing tools available to you and identify the perfect method for you to achieve your goals. From how to attract new students, nurture interest and converting to bookings, through to keeping students long term. Let's translate your brand, messages and offer into an effective campaign that gets results.

Step 6: Make marketing that works!

The secret here is efficiency. We cover how to use both digital and offline marketing tools effectively, so your time is optimised. We have everything for you; templates for leaflets and adverts; website advice; strategy to build your email list and run a successful email campaign; how to harness the power of social media and expert tips on creating compelling photography, video and print material.

I'm Laura

I have 25 years of experience of yoga business and have successfully guided my studio through 15 years of massive change in the yoga world, as well as a global pandemic. Often I have made mistakes but I have learnt on the job and put together everything I know to guide you to have the yoga career you need and that your students need you to have.

Yoga continues through to expand and become more commercialised, but as yoga teachers and small businesses we need to know how to plan and market ourselves so that we can be bring authentic, compassionate yoga to those who need it.

It’s tempting to see yoga as separate from business but if we want to be effective and love with ease we need to know how to be professional and communicate what we are about.

I have experience at every level of yoga teaching and a depth of knowledge that comes from being an insider for 25 years!

"Taking the leap to do this course was one of best decisions I’ve ever made and the learning continues long after the course ends - the best money you’ll ever spend."
