We all got into this because we love yoga, right? Some of us took the step beyond just teaching and made the commitment to yoga, its students, and its community by opening a studio or buying a pre-existing business. Maybe you are in the process of making that same leap but where do you begin?
How do you make a sustainable living that meets the financial goals of you and your family while keeping the yoga authentic? The good news is, there is a way- many ways, and this is how we can best serve you. Ali Valdez counsels yoga studio owners around the world, providing new business, acquired business, expanding business, franchising options and business exploration. Ali’s number one passion is to see yoga communities thrive, to provide a ‘home’ or mat for any person at any time that meets their needs in a caring and compassionate way, and to see those communities be sustainable.
With over a decade of teaching a variety of styles, conducting teacher trainings nationwide, studying at studios worldwide, Ali knows the yoga landscape in its most non-insular way. Coupling this with a highly successful career at a senior executive level at many zeitgeist organizations, she offers insights that put financial logic and fiscal discipline behind endeavors built from the heart. From helping create a business plan, financial projections, scouting sites, demographic analysis, goal setting and sales & marketing, Ali is here to help you succeed (because if she is ever in your town, she wants a place to practice excellent yoga!)
Yoga can be a passion and a business with all yoga yamas & niyamas honored and proper business ethics maintained. Feel good as a studio owner that you can meet the needs of your students, your community and yourself.
