The field of Yoga Therapy is growing, evolving and becoming more widely recognized as an important part of holistic, complementary health care. Yoga Therapy training’s teach students how to be of service to their communities but rarely touch on how to navigate the world of business to ensure their own sustainability. In this course participants will explore:

  • The key aspects to consider when developing a business plan.

  • Identifying and articulating your unique offerings as a Yoga Therapist.

  • Successful marketing strategies.

  • Tools for the effective day-to-day management of your business.

  • How to establish yourself as a professional in the field of Yoga Therapy.

  • Understanding credentialing

  • Determining the most practical paths to gain experience and professional development.

This workshop includes 10 hours of distance education.
