Yoga Alliance-Approved Advanced  Studies and
Continuing-Education Yoga Teacher Training

Dates: June 1, 2019
CEC: 10 Hour (10 Contact)
Location: Lakeville

While not every teacher dreams of owning their own studio, it is helpful as a teacher to understand all that is involved in running such a business. In this training module participants will learn the basics needed for creating a business plan.


Topics Include

  • Options for what type of legal entity to form

  • Creating a budget

  • Naming your business

  • Selecting real estate

  • Hiring teachers

  • Scheduling classes

  • Marketing your business

  • And everything in between

Students will identify goals for their future business, real or imagined, and walk away with a business plan outline and draft budget. A laptop computer or tablet with Word and spreadsheet software such as Numbers or Excel is extremely recommended because participants will be doing hands-on budget and plan development.  This training is only open to students currently enrolled in a Green Lotus 200-Hour program, or under a Green Lotus License Agreement.
