Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 89 – Mindful in Minutes with Kelly Smith

Kelly Smith is an E-RYT 500, YACEP, founder of Yoga For You, and host of the iTunes chart topping podcast, Mindful in Minutes. Kelly was inspired to start sharing yoga and mindfulness as a teenager, when she saw the therapeutic benefits yoga and mindfulness had on her mom during her battle with breast cancer. At first Kelly did not start pursuing her passion as a career but the week after she graduated from University Kelly enrolled in her first yoga teacher training program and has never looked back. After a cross country move forced her to leave her full-time job in business management Kelly decided to turn yoga into her career. Kelly started with a small, modest studio in the rural midwest and has since expanded to thousands of students located all through the US, Canada, and the UK, offers yoga teacher trainings, workshops, and local and international yoga and mindfulness retreats.

Kelly believes that there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to yoga and cultivates an environment that empowers her students to listen to their bodies, explore their personal practice through more than just yoga poses, and to find joy and gratitude for the life they have. She believes you already have everything you need to thrive instead of you, you just need the right tools, and a little courage to bring your true radiance forward and thrive. Kelly is an advocate for living your life with joy and gratitude, creating a yoga and meditation practice that fits you, and always having a fresh cup of coffee in hand. Kelly and Yoga For You have been featured in places like FabFitFun, KTVO ABC News, and numerous major lifestyle and wellness blogs and podcasts.

Income Report For March 2018

It can be challenging to be a full time yoga teacher, especially if you are like me and find it difficult to teach four classes a day. This month I did not put in as much work as I usually do, as far as reaching outside of studios to teach. The result is less money and the realization that being a yoga teacher outside of the studio means you have to on or you don’t get paid. We have to be able to get creative and always look for opportunities to teach if we don’t have the studios to hand us classes, which even then can be tough to get. I hope you find the report useful and thank you for listening. Until next time!!

Nikki Krause pre-class Warmup

We get into electrolytes, what type Nikki uses and how much she uses, and Rich Roll (of course). Nikki reminds us especially when you’re teaching in the heat to keep up with your potassium and to listen to what motivates you. Nikki always puts me in a good mood and raises my vibes, so get around people that build you up and challenge you to be your best self! Subscribe to the show to keep up with all the goods and grab a can of Ultima unless it says Nik! Much love and thanks for listening!!

January 2018 Income Report

Hey guys! I put together a quick episode about how much money I made as a yoga teacher in January. I plan to bring more episodes that document my journey as a yoga instructor and break down the reality of what it takes to make full time money as a yoga teacher. Lots of things going on and am in works with a local artist on two different projects that are yoga related, plus an experienced yoga instructor putting together a product to be sold on the site!! I have also started a new podcast with my buddy Jay Ojeda and would say that too is part of the big picture. What are you working on that can be connected to your yoga teaching? Are you selling crystals? Giving Reiki? There are many many different opportunities to make money that can come from your teaching, get creative with your work and lets connect!!
