Episode 159: Live Q&A: Thoughts on Creating Authentic Content and Curriculum

If there’s one topic that eludes yoga teachers most, it’s not the correct angle of the front knee in Anjaneyasana. It’s how to teach yoga and make a livable wage. We recorded this week’s episode live at Jason’s 300-hour training at Lovestory Yoga in San Francisco and answered student questions creating content that’s authentic and sustainable. We talk about: * Why quality is so much more important than quantity when it comes to content–even in the fast-paced world of social media * A few ideas for diversifying your streams of income so you’re not relying solely on public yoga classes to pay your bills * How to decide how much content to give away * How to get beyond the daily grind to create a teaching curriculum * When to hire others to help you scale your business (and what to contract out)
