In this seminar yoga studio owners, teachers, and staff will learn how to apply the mental qualities of yoga to yoga business practices, with a specific focus on sales in a yoga studio. Our goal as teachers is to get the most people practicing the most yoga to make the world a better place, and the purchase of a yoga pass is the gateway for students to begin this process of transformation. We will explore why sales are important for a yoga business beyond the financial gain and why using the best sales practices for today’s consumer is in fact our obligation as yogis. Participants will also learn the psychology behind sales and what exactly to do and say in a sales situation to find ease and success, flip resistance, and have both consumer and seller leave the sale feeling good.

During our travels to hundreds of studios in Canada, USA and Mexico, we've encountered so many yoga teachers who have a lot of experience, incredible teaching skills and passion, but who fail to reach their full potential because they've forgotten (or never implemented) some of the basic principles of teaching hot yoga. We’ll use our experience from owning a yoga studio, running a teacher mentorship program, and teaching and practicing all over North America, to go over some of the major pitfalls that teachers today are falling into. In this seminar we’ll also touch on teaching drills and resources, giving and receiving feedback, the primary goals of Bikram’s beginning yoga class and its postures, and how to teach students with injuries or special cases. Regardless of your experience level, this workshop will amp up your enthusiasm and give you clarity and focus on how to best help your students and yourself succeed.

#YogaCafé: The Future of the Yoga Industry
There are more yoga teachers, yoga studios, and yoga practitioners in the world today than there ever have been. The yoga machine has become a 16 billion dollar industry in North America alone. But things are now shifting in a new direction. For the first time ever, there are more yoga studios closing than new studios opening. Students are now looking for yoga teachers on Instagram and Cody App. What will yoga practice, yoga lineages, yoga teachers and yoga business look like in the decades to come? In this special edition of Nomad Yoga Family’s #YogaCafe, Josh will lead an open discussion and talk about some of the indicators of changes to come and the new directions that the yoga industry is heading. The change will be scary for some, and exciting for others, but one thing is certain, change is coming.#YogaCafé: The Future of the Yoga Industry

The Power of Words and Talking with Your Hands
Yoga Adjustments…The most powerful part of giving Ashtanga is in the touch. It is not what we can guide so much as what we can feel, touch and breathe. And more is less in this simple yet powerful approach. The breath is the guide, which allows us to line up our students or ourselves by using brief verbal and tactile clues to move in and out of an asana, without disrupting the breath. Working with partners, we will learn some of these subtle adjustments that are as important to understand while you are being adjusted, as they are when you are giving adjustments.

Barkan Method Hot Yoga
The Barkan Method Hot Yoga Class is based on the Bikram 26 posture flow but Jimmy Barkan has changed and added postures from other styles of yoga. Postures practiced in this class maintain a basic format offering structure and continuity. However, various sections of the class change from day to day according to the area of the body the teacher chooses to target. For example, one day during the floor section of the class we may feature backbends, another day hip openers, and another day leg stretches.

Beyond Asana
Yoga is the practice of presence. Hatha yoga is a traditional healing modality that utilizes the physical body as a preparatory vehicle for self-observation and potential transformation. It was developed as a practical means to understand and navigate the subtle anatomy of mind. And also to support the invention of yoga pants and green juice.

This spectacular experience will provide a transformative blueprint to evolve your physical practice and optimize the Human Operating System. Through pattern recognition and conscious connection, we will balance the wisdom of an ancient art with the most innovative discoveries of modern science to integrate body, mind, and breath.
