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!!

Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 71 With Ashley Jonas – You Don’t Know Until You Try

Ashley Jonas (E-RYT), started practicing yoga in 2010 to help improve her performance as a college athlete. In 2013, after experiencing the benefits of a daily yoga practice, she received her 200-hr yoga teacher certification and began teaching vinyasa yoga, the most accessible style of power yoga. Ashley is also a Budokon® Yoga Sensei trained through the Budokon Mixed Movement Academy with Cameron Shayne. She is inspired by all movement styles including martial arts, calisthenics, running, weight lifting and dance. Her classes are fun, yet challenging with focus on finding the yogi warrior within.

Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 70 With Nina Jarnum – Teach As Much As Possible

Nina is a North California based teacher registered with Yoga Alliance, trained in the Hatha tradition by Shane Davies and Smart Flow with Annie Carpenter. Always seeking a deeper understanding of yoga and movement, she is currently pursuing her 500 hrs YTT in Smart Flow.

Although Danish born and raised, her yoga journey started over a decade ago whilst living in England, as a means to counteract the impact, years of high level horse riding had on her body. A few years later, having moved to California, she discovered her talent (and obsession) for arm balances and inversions, and the road to becoming a yoga teacher became a natural development from then on.

Nina is a self-confessed anatomy geek, but likes bending the rules and challenge yoga dogma. Her approach to asana is based on bio-mechanic intelligence and she is known for her ability to break down handstands and arm balances, teaching students anatomically correct body engagement. Nina works from the principle that asana is a union of strength, flexibility, balance and breath, but also thinks it imperative to inject playfulness and fun into her practice and teaching.
