Business of Yoga / Ethics & Lifestyle

In the Business of Yoga portion of this module we will cover the many different ways to begin your career teaching yoga whether it be teaching a few classes a week, opening your own studio or anything in between.We discuss how to succeed in the competitive world of teaching yoga – what materials are needed, where to get jobs, how to create jobs, and how to shine and rise above the competition.

The Ethics and Lifestyle portion of this module is based on the Yamas and Niyamas which are the first and second limb of the Eight Limbs of Yoga as presented in The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. We also go over how to handle challenging situations that may come up when teaching students privately or in a group class. This module is based on the book Teaching Yoga by Donna Farhi
