Effective Communication and the Business of Yoga

The first time I heard the term “industry of yoga” was in 2004. It was a portent of what was to come. I had to upscale my involvement with marketing, media, and management.

This “elephant” is what we often hesitate to talk about. A big part of management and marketing has to do with communication. I have served on several Boards for non-profit organizations as well as worked with management for multi-studio corporations and found effective communication is a fundamental skill. Once words leave your mouth, you cannot retrieve them, unlike an asana which you can refine and practice the next day. I found that the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali held valuable keys to organizing the internal voices so that I could express myself with clarity and compassion.

Taking the time to continually nurture your business the way you do your teachings and practice is fundamental to finding ease, flow, expansion and success in your own life and what you offer to the world.
