Marketing is a significant source of stress for many yoga teachers, but it doesn’t need to be. The Marketing for Yoga Teachers online course with Rachel Land is designed for part-time and full-time yoga teachers who would like to operate their yoga business more skillfully. This online course will help you flip your perspective, so that instead of thinking about marketing as “selling” you see it as another way to connect with your community. You’ll walk through the process of building and executing a marketing plan from start to finish, covering topics like identifying your core students, refining your current teaching offerings, analyzing the yoga market you work in, crafting a clear statement of who you are as a teacher and where you would like to grow in the future, and creating a budget of current and projected expenses versus earnings. There are practical assignments each step of the way to help you apply the theory to your teaching, your students, and your community. The end goal is to build a sustainable teaching career that fulfills you – personally, professionally, financially.
