Yogi Tones Podcast – Yoga Teacher Scam

Had a conversation through text with a yoga teacher recently who said my business was a scam. I really took this to heart and after the initial reaction, realize that wasn’t necessary. That always seems to be the case with these type of situations right? Hope this recording helps you in your future business dealings and we learn to let go and stay with our breath a little while. Much love!

Yogi Tones Podcast with Jackie Gadd – Teaching the Senior Population

Jackie Gadd ([email protected]) found yoga in 2004 as path to alleviate physical and emotional health complications. After volunteering to teach yoga to preteens, she went on to earn four small certificates in children’s yoga. In 2011, at age 43 and a new mom, she committed to yoga as a career, and earned her E-RYT-200 and RPTY (perinatal). Since, Jackie has added certifications like Yoga for Eating Disorders, Teaching Adaptive Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis, Accessible Yoga, Silver Sneakers, and trainings in mindfulness, restorative practices, and yoga anatomy. For her, every class is adaptive, and she insists that the practice should fit the practitioner, not the reverse.
