Yogi Tones Podcast – Finding the Real Guru with Kat Da Silva

Today on the show is Kat Da Silva and we have some fun. Talking all things including yoga certifications and how you really don’t (kinda sorta) need one to teach yoga. People you wouldn’t expect to drop into a yoga class, who the real guru is, also farmers markets and how they can be a great place to spread your yoga love!!

Kat is a Passionate & Active Member of her Community – She knows no other way than Being the Change – being a Kickass Mom, Daughter, Sistah, Friend, and Human. She spends her time creating memories with her 12 year old son, teaching and living mindfulness, compassion, and embodiment through yoga, meditation, and other tools of self-reclamation. Kat finds deep pleasure in guiding her students in unlayering their stories and blocks, either on the mat or off, and holding the light while they discover their power, their peace, and the freedom of owning their bodies, their minds, and ultimately their lives. Kat believes in the power of community to create change and so she gives back by co-organizing events such as the Conscious San Jose Festival, serving in her local neighborhood committee driving anti-litter and beautification initiatives, and actively participating as a member of the Be the Change Collective. Kat’s future projects include bringing hope, guidance, and empowerment to moms through her Root to Rise Yoga & Lifestyle Coaching practice. Ultimately, Kat envisions a world where women heal, feel empowered, and see themselves wholly and deeply, allowing those around them to be just as deeply touched, loved, and transformed.

Special thanks to Kat for joining me on the show. Until next time!

Yogi Tones Podcast with Sabrina Gallier – Yoga Teacher Marketing Done Right

Sabrina Gallier is back on the podcast again bringing practical tips for you to market yourself as a yoga teacher. Whats great about Sabrina is she doesn’t sugar coat anything, if you want to market yourself as a yoga teacher the right way, listen to what she has to say!
Sabrina is the Co-founder of Fiitz – Find yoga anywhere. Teach yoga everywhere.
FiitZ is a community-driven platform for yogis, much like Airbnb is for travelers, with the objective to help the yoga industry reorganize as it matures further. We want to empower people to do more yoga, anywhere. Creating technology catered to yoga teachers is going to help students find the right classes, workshops, and retreats. Our vision is to make yoga easy to find and available everywhere, to everyone.  
In the last 1,5 years, Sabrina lived in 10 different places, and 3 different countries for her work before coming back home to San Diego. Her biggest challenge was to do yoga anywhere she went and find the teachers she could truly connect with. When Sabrina got back here, she was eager to make that process of finding a yoga teacher a bit easier and the whole experience, more pleasant. That is how FiitZ was born.  The people at Fiitz believe a 16 billion dollar industry could be better organized.  Today, 20.4 Million people practice yoga in the US. They want to bring yoga, wellness, and meditation to even more people worldwide.
