What Drona's Teaching to Arjuna Teaches us about Business

What Drona's Teaching to Arjuna Teaches us about Business

I've had a bit of driving to do these past few days. So what would a #YogaNerd do to break up the time?

Listen to the Mahābhārata on audiobook, of course!

(Yup, all 45 hours of it!)

One of the things I adore most about this incredible work is the way lessons are woven through out the story.

Yes, we are a part of the main narrative: the cousins in conflict about territory and rulership.

But we also learn of so many subplots and additional characters, backstories and exposition.

It is rich: full of teachings for us as Yogis... and Yoga Business Owners.

So today on the podcast I'm going to share a mini story from the Mahabharata that is going to help you with focus.

If you've ever struggled with 'bright shiny object' syndrome, or find yourself losing time on social media...

PS: Registrations for Growing Your Yoga Biz are closing soon!

If 2019 is really going to be the year to master the tools and mindset to share your Yoga gifts with the people who need them while generating prosperity AND personal reward in business...


...time is a'ticking, Gorgeous!

Staying Happy and Healthy on the Road

Staying Happy and Healthy on the Road

I’m in Sydney today preparing to teach a fun bunch of Yogis some biz basics tomorrow.

This is my sixth city in three weeks... that’s a lot of biz training travel for this empath!

So today on the podcast I’m sharing how I keep myself ‘me’ on the road.

PS: Did you see The super cool bonuses that come with  your Growing YourYoga Biz enrolment?

It's one thing to set goals.

(And worse: beating yourself up about it!)

Follow along with the workbook here:

Also on the training I shared a very special bonus that is all yours when you register for Growing Your Yoga Business!

The Importance of Building Real Connections

The Importance of Building Real Connections

Do you ever feel like a sell out?

Or perhaps like you're relentlessly throwing stuff up on social media only to be met with crickets.

Or maybe that you've got nothing to say?

Or that it's all been said before?

You NEED to get to the podcast this week!

I'm SO EXCITED about seeing the participants on my retreat getting great results from this one important shift: I MUST share it with you!!

It's one thing to set goals.

But without an action plan to make them happen, you could be exactly where you are now, six months from now.

(And worse: beating yourself up about it!)

Embracing Vibhishana in your Yoga biz in 2019

Embracing Vibhishana in your Yoga biz in 2019

May 2019 bring you ease and flow, inspiration and insight in your Yoga biz, all while serving the students who need what you have to offer.

I am SO delighted that you are joining this community for another year of Abundant Yoga Teacher trainings and support. I love that you're here.

Over the week I've spent A LOT of time with my journal. On NYE it hit me that in order for 2019 to be TRULY different, things needed to REALLY change.

So today on the podcast I'm going to tell you the story of one of the characters from the Ramayana who totally gets change. Like, in a complete night to day kind of way.

Vibhishana was the brother of Ravana, the evil King of Lanka who stole Sita away.

(So if you think YOU'RE family Christmas gets heated...)

When this guy realised something had to change, he REALLY changed... and won incredible, surprising boons as a result.

I'll tell you the full story - as well as why I think more Vibhishana energy in your Yoga biz is going to make ALL the difference this year - in this podcast.

PS: Are you joining me on my Abundant Yoga Teacher National Tour?

This February I'll be visiting almost ALL of Australia's capital cities to host a Yoga Teacher Immersion and I would LOVE to see you there!

2018 Svadhyaya for Your Yoga Biz

2018 Svadhyaya for Your Yoga Biz

OOOOOOH! I ADORE this time of year.

For me, it's warm, sunny and the cray-cray of Christmas is behind us.

Aaaand, the New Year is yet to arrive.

It feels like the Kumbhaka in my biz, the pause between breathing in and breathing out.

So for me it is the BEST time to luxuriously and languidly take some Svadhyaya (self-reflection) time for me and my biz.

Today on the podcast I share with you my process, as well as celebrate the amazing things you've been up to this year.

And I share some of my most favourite journaling questions to get you in the reflective mood, as well.

Yoga Story Time: The Power of Perseverance

Yoga Story Time: The Power of Perseverance

Is there something in your Yoga biz that you've given up on?

Perhaps you've settled for having half-full classes.

Maybe you started using social media but you gave up before you saw results.

Or have you inquired about calling in more support (a cleaner, a VA, someone to take some professional pics) but you've not actually signed a contract?

Sticking-with-it-ness is one of the best things Yoga teaches us. Keeping on trying, working through blocks and barriers, challenging ourselves to lean in when we want to pull out.

Not scratching your nose in meditation.

Holding two more breaths in an inversion.

Reminding a student AGAIN to fold their blanket the right way.

Today on the podcast I'm celebrating this great teaching.

And who better to remind us of the power of perseverance than the ultimate Yogini herself, Parvati.

If 2019 is YOUR YEAR to grow your Yoga business so you can call in abundance while being in deep service to your community and working in a way that lights you up (and never overwhelms you!)...

GOOD NEWS!

'Growing Your Yoga Business' - my signature Yoga biz training program for Yogis - is NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATIONS!

And what's more, register before the end of December ‘18 and you can access the...
