One thing that I have learned over the last 14 years of owning my studio is that an all levels or combination class is a very important factor. Many of struggle to get every student we can possible get to walk through the door so we aren’t going to turn them a way and tell them that the Beginner’s class is tomorrow night, they may not come back again. Many...
After hearing all the drama and controversy going on in the yoga community this week — you know, the whole Yogaglo trying to patent their camera angles thing, and yet another famous yoga teacher thinking it is okay to have sex with students — I started questioning whether or not we should be looking at reality tv for yoga.
All the disappointment from so many people. It is sad to know that...
On Friday May 25th, I was honoured to receive the Excellence in Inter-professional Pain education award from the Canadian Pain Society. I am the first physical therapist to receive this award, and I believe the first educator who is not an academic-researcher, so it is a very special honour. As part of the award, I shared a 45-minute presentation at the conference, so I thought I would write a summary...
After a three-year sabbatical on email, I’ve decided it’s time to check back in with reality and take a strong hold on my digital life (in other words, my email inbox).
Since I started developing for the web back in 1996, I’ve been witness to one of the biggest time sucks known to man…
…Email, and the steady and ever increasing mountain of crap that somehow finds its way into my inbox (and more...
Attending this workshop was a change of plan for me (I won’t tell you the one I ditched out on in order to go listen to Edi!)…for whatever reason, when this afternoon came, I was just pulled to check out what Edi Pasalis had to say in her workshop More Hours or More Per Hour? Lessons in Right Livelihood From MBSR
. Maybe it’s because I’m new to this...
Greetings, YH-VC Goers! (Or, for you non-acronym-types: Greetings, YogaHub Virtual Conference Goers!!)… Are you getting as excited as I am for the main event? Five full days of virtual conference awesome-ness is a-coming, and I am jazzed! At last, enlightenment shall be mine!!
Well, alright, enlightenment might be a tall order for a single conference…but a girl can dream, can’t she? Sigh… (more...)
I had totally forgotten what it’s like to have those “first time
” nervous tensions swarm over me. You would think at my age and after all I have gone through in my life that these would have dissipated by now.
However, getting ready for YogaHub’s first Teleseminar Series
was not - I repeat - not
easy on my mind, body, or spirit. I was rattled for several days. I...
Okay, do you remember one of my previous blogs about social networking
I couldn’t believe that I didn’t know what to do in MyYogaHub. I didn’t know how to use it even though it was a tool we had built for the community.
I was frazzled!
I was petrified! (more...)
I had such a good laugh out loud today as I was perusing through our new upgraded YogaHub Site. This site has been my vision for so many years and we have the most incredible team of individuals striving for its success.
Well, my goodness! Did I ever, ever feel totally embarrassed!
Would you believe that I did not even know how to make friends in MyYogaHub social networking space
Do you own a yoga studio? If so, how would you feel if you were told you’d have to start charging a sales tax? Yes, that’s right – the tax man cometh!
Charging their clients a sales tax is the dilemma that yoga studios and teachers in the state of Washington are currently facing. Recently, the Department of Revenue in that state notified the owners of yoga studios that they would have to start charging...
