I have been running a profitable Online Studio since 2019 and working closely with a mentor who has been teaching Online for 2 years.
I would love to offer what I know in order to help others.
This is part of my Yoga.
In this interview with Amy McDonald on the Abundant Yoga Teacher Podcast, I openly explain the specifics of getting yourself set up ONLINE and how I run my online studio EXACTLY the same as in person classes. Thank you Amy for giving me the opportunity to share what I know with others and I hope those that listen find it valuable.
I knew for a while, that I needed to go Online before I actually did it. I live in the remote Kimberley and my yoga community can be as far away as 550km from me & each other. It was not very viable or physically possible for me to continue to reach all of my yoga community through my outreach program on a regular basis - however they were asking me for more Yoga!!
I also had friends and family from around the world often tell me that they wished I lived geographically closer so that I could do yoga with them.
In 2019, I came up against significant health challenges. I was running a yoga studio in Derby, Western Australia at the time and I needed to go to the City (Perth - 2,500km away) for treatment and this would take me away from my student base for at least a month at a time. I needed to continue to pay the studio rent and I needed to continue to connect with my students.
Whilst it was a different set of circumstances, I was feeling probably very similar to how some of you may be feeling during COVID-19 and the impact this might have on your business. Just like you, I needed to get online FAST.
I reached out to a lovely yoga friend and mentor who had been teaching yoga in the online space for 2 years. I didn't have time to work it all out on my own and the good news was that I didn't have to do it on my own.
I learnt everything that I needed to know, I got admin and set up support for a booking system that was easy to navigate and integrated nicely to a platform which I could live stream from, through my mentor. I was up and running in a week!
My students in the Online Studio have come from not only the remote Kimberley but all over Australia and a few international students have dropped in too.
You don't need to navigate the Online world all on your own.
I am here to help!
