Welcome to Business of Yoga with Authentic Movements.



Whether you teach yoga or yoga-inspired movement on your own or through a studio program, there is a BUSINESS side to your offerings.

And the business of yoga can be a challenging subject for many. 

It can feel strange talking about money or marketing when paired with your movement and teachings. You might not naturally flock to the more administrative or analytical subjects of legal and financial responsibilities of being self-employed and/or working under a studio umbrella. Perhaps you’re overwhelmed by the idea of extending your offerings through things like workshops, retreats, or even teacher trainings.

Let us help! Join Team Authentic Movements and guest instructors for this comprehensive deep-dive into all things business.

From adding accessibility and increasing diversity in your spaces to understanding the basics of designing and advertising for complex offerings, this 25HR has you covered. We’ll touch on all sides of marketing, dedicate an entire unit to tips and tricks of teaching online, and even look into professionalism, management, and yoga + politics.
