Other tools

Asana – This project management tool allows you to create content calendars, build social media schedules, assign tasks to team members, and dozens of other functions that help keep projects on track. It integrates with online calendars, including Google Calendar, but can also be a fantastic complement to a paper planner. It works equally well for teams and solopreneurs. Although Asana has a paid version, the entire Hey Marvelous team uses the free version so we think most of you will be able to do the same!

Trello – We use this project management tool for the software development side of Hey Marvelous, and it’s another great, free option. If you are used to using Hootsuite, you’ll love Trello’s similar, board-centric layout. Explore both of these task-centric tools and see which one suits your needs.

G Suite – Google’s flagship collection of cloud-based applications supports yoga teachers on everything from email to lesson plans to budgets to file storage. For access to the full functionality of G Suite, you’ll need to pony up $5 per month per team member, but it’s well worth the investment.

Canva – For graphics and social media image editing, you can’t beat Canva. Correct images sizes for Twitter posts, Facebook covers, and loads of other social-centric graphics are pre-loaded and easy to find. There’s a paid version for businesses, but the free software is elegant, easy to use, and surprisingly powerful. Ideal for non-graphic-designers with simple graphic design needs.

Squarespace – Squarespace is basically foolproof. It’s tough to construct an ugly website using this elegant platform! Especially if you’re not comfortable with the complexities of Wordpress, you can pay $16 per month for access to everything Squarespace has to offer. It’s your best bet for building a simple, beautiful website quickly and easily. If you’re starting from zero, you can use your Hey Marvelous site as a very basic web presence … but if you’ve decided to start a blog, step up to Squarespace. (Interested in learning more about the differences between Squarespace and Wordpress? We’ve got a two-part blog post comparing them – part 1, part 2.)

ConvertKit – This suite for email marketing is considerably more powerful than Mailchimp, but lacks a free option. We use ConvertKit ourselves and love its depth of functionality, especially the ability to “tag” subscribers to track their origins and interests. The basic plan is $29 per month, and is ideal for businesses ready to move into more complex email marketing. (This post on picking the right email tool for your needs digs deeper, and explores several other options.)

Slack – If you have an assistant, business partner, or team, this group communication tool is a must. Conversations are streamlined, organized, and made far easier to navigate than long, convoluted email chains.

The Inner Circle – Again, we’re a little biased, but we truly believe this program is a life-changer! Our Soulful MBA component alone includes more than 85 trainings that can transform you from a business newbie to a savvy online entrepreneur.

SADHANA TEACHER TRAINING With Janet Stone

For those looking to explore yoga as a living practice, on and off the mat

Janet Stone YTT

Key Focal Points: 

  • Philosophical perspectives of the 8-limbed path
  • Foundational anatomy & alignment based upon both anatomy and energetic connection
  • In-depth study of vinyasa, slow flow, and restorative techniques
  • Sequencing as story-telling
  • Teaching from your own personal practice

Why we chose this training/What makes this training special:

Janet is everything a student could want in a yoga teacher and spiritual guide. She’s lesser-known in the online ether but is a legend in California. We believe that in order to be a great teacher you must be steeped in your own personal practice (Sadhana). Janet Stone’s training focuses on this idea perhaps more than any other foundational training out there. This training is broken up into six modules that all relate to personal practice and how to embody these teachings so that they can be shared authentically. The course also brings in guest teachers such as anatomy expert, Harvey Deutch, and musicians to add to the Bhakti experience Janet is known for. This training invites students to live the practice of yoga and to apply the teachings to their everyday lives.

EAST + WEST 200-HOUR YOGA ALLIANCE RYT

  • Applied anatomy
  • Meditation and Philosophy

Why we chose this training/What makes this training special:

The East+West online training is run 100% live with teachers from both India and the west. Traditional Indian teachers teach philosophy, meditation, and history, and professional western teachers teach Asana, sequencing, and studio preparation. Staying authentic to and showing reverence for the tradition of yoga and its teachings is certainly one of our missions in creating a well-rounded training program. Along with this, a big emphasis of this training is on your own personal practice and staying consistent with it. 

Focus of the training:

1. Giving students a positive daily practice (Sadhana). We meet for shorter meetings every day to give students something short and productive to do each day.

2. Giving students a micro-learning-focused curriculum on preparations for teaching in a studio, and/or online.

3. During this time, meditation and yogic philosophy are more important than ever, and our online curriculum has a beefed-up focus on both of these subjects as compared with our Bali curriculum.

The mix of teachers also offers students the opportunity to explore yoga as a practice far beyond the mat, which we believe is an important teaching in itself. 

Her trainings are a great mix of East & West, and she and her team do just about everything at the highest level. Kia is a perfect role model for new students who will be in your life for a long, long time.

You can get to know Kia from her classes on YogaGlo.

Conclusion

There are numerous benefits to being an online yoga teacher, but you might want to consider the financial aspects of this career before you dive in. The type of platform you use is also essential to keep in mind, since this will ultimately dictate how much money you can make. It may also be worth signing up for the paid platforms that will give you access to student email addresses—you’ll be able to market your business more effectively if you have them.
