Just like new students have common misalignments and challenges, new teachers have common questions and similar roadblocks. This call with my assistant Noelle Callahan is like Teaching Yoga 101. We cover what you need to know to get started and how to gain traction as a teacher.
Questions that we cover in the call:
1. Getting started
I'm moving to a new city. When and how should I begin reaching out to studios and should I send a resume even if they aren't hiring?
How do I know what level of classes I should be teaching?
What is the range of pay I can expect to receive when I begin teaching? is it worth teaching for less to start? how much less?
Should I teach poses that I cannot do the full version of myself?
2. Go Pro: Business, Marketing and Education:
Do I need a business license, insurance, or anything else to start teaching?
What do I do if a student has an injury that they bring to my class and how do I know if it is to serious for them to be taking my class?
What do I do if a student injures her or himself in my class?
With so many yoga teachers in some cities how do I set myself apart from the others?
I'm not on social media, how important is it and how much time do I need to devote to it?
How do I know when I need to spend money and time on additional teacher trainings?
3. Expanding your Offerings:
When do I know I'm ready to begin teaching workshops?
