About This Workshop

The life of a yoga studio owner doesn't end at being the fitness guru and “money-maker.” According to former Yoga Alliance board member Andrew Tanner, E-RYT 500, "Owning a yoga studio is a lot like being a minister at a church, a psychotherapist, an aerobics instructor and an administrator, all rolled into one." Even if you can't do all of those jobs or focus effectively on every aspect of business, you may be able to find partners who can fill in those roles in addition to professional tools and programs to help streamline your business so it operates more efficiently. Beyond that, Andrew offers more tips for what you may want to consider before and after you open a studio so your business is profitable and work is fulfilling.
