with Leigh Stewart & Ariana Shadan 

** This workshop will be at an offsite location, not at Yoga Garen SF**

Location: Almonte Center, Mill Valley, CA

Are you a certified yoga instructor looking to jumpstart your business practice, reignite a long-held career or accelerate your new certification into a successful business? After surging into a certification we can feel at a loss for what to do, how to proceed and how to successfully market ourselves to the world with unique vision and style.

This day-long retreat will equip you with a full press kit of new media: 6-10 professional photos of you that can be used for digital and print marketing, launching your social media or website and carrying you forward into your unique vision.

You will learn the ins and outs of executing a profitable business as a teacher: How to host a retreat without draining your inner and outer resources, inspire a consistent practice and relationship with your students and develop your business into the most materially and spiritually abundant relationship to you. Whether you are a newly certified teacher or an E-RYT-500 expert, we look forward to reigniting your business in all modalities.
