MASTERMIND

Find your alignment:

physically, spiritually, financially

In an intimate group setting, focused on YOU, we’ll:

UNCOVER your unique path as a yoga teacher. Devise a strategy that’s right for you, whether setting up a studio, launching an online business, teaching one-on-one or fusing yoga with your job (whether your work is at an office or at home).
LEVERAGE digital strategies to unlock revenue opportunities and boost your brand. Tips, tools and techniques to create a business plan that capitalizes on your strengths and dovetails with your lifestyle. Smart approaches to customer acquisition, including selling without being “sales-y.”
DEEPEN your offering with the proven benefits of myofascial release — a cutting-edge healing technique in great demand. Enhance your hands-on adjustments so you can offer both private and studio clients this powerful fusion of yoga and massage.
JUMPSTART your personal brand with a professional yoga photographer, included in the cost of the Mastermind! At the end of this 3-day workshop, you’ll have your own flattering headshots and personal promotional photos. Use these right away to help build your business. Invaluable, whether teaching in the online sphere or in a studio.

We’ll also take class, massage and meditate together in what promises to be a fun and memorable long weekend!

Uplift your teaching, your skills, your mindset

I’ve done many previous trainings, workshops, and have a lot of in-class experience as a yoga teacher. The Uplifted training gave me new techniques and understanding from the fascial perspective. I love using these in my classes and privates.

Can I come if I have my degree, but I’m not currently teaching?

Yes! If teaching is something you desire, COME so we can accelerate you into aligned action. I promise to support and inspire you. You’ll leave with personalized action items to move forward, my insights and customized feedback, and accountability assists from your “power partner.”

Is food and lodging included?

One group meal out + healthy snacks and refreshments are included. Lodging in one of two Mastermind suites is available for those who wish to stay together with other Mastermind attendees.

Long Beach (LGB) 45 minutes

Is Mastermind tax deductible?

Please check with your accountant, but in theory YES! If you are a current yoga teacher, the cost of mastermind, as well as your cost of travel, food and lodging can be considered a business expense.
