I Almost Quit Teaching Yoga (Twice), But Did THIS Instead | Ep 8

If you're a yoga teacher, you have likely experienced that moment where you just feel like giving up. I have, multiple times!

And if you haven't experienced that yet, there's a good chance that you will at some point in your journey. 

So in this episode I'm going to share my story of those moments where I was completely backed up against the wall and I wanted to quit, and what I did to pivot and change the trajectory of my teaching journey and business.

So if that sounds like something that could be encouraging and empowering for you as you take your next steps, grab a drink, grab a comfy chair, and come chat with us.
