Why you should be using video messages in your yoga business (and how).

This is a picture of me doing something that has been making a big difference to my yoga teaching and to my students.

Video messaging.

It’s free, it's super easy and it’s achieved three amazing things in my yoga business:


1.           My students LOVE it

2.           I’ve saved a tonne of time

3.           It’s made me more money

Western Australia and the Northern Territory have, compared to other states, weathered the Covid-19 storm. And spending on services has roared back. Arts, recreation and leisure have all seen an increase in spending in recent weeks. 

That's good news for everyone. As lock-down rules ease across the country, people are coming back to their usual activities like yoga.

Your students are yearning for it. What’s more, the need for authentic connection is stopping many people from doing yoga online - or leading them to drop out after trying it for a while.
