The Show:

  • How contracts, policies, and boundaries keeps us yogic (and not resentful)
  • The policies that private yoga teachers/studioless yoga teachers/yoga teachers for hire should have
  • How to quit writing the same contract over and over again (this includes your liability waiver)

#Stickynotes + Weekly Work:

  1.  What kinds of contracts do you need based on the work that you do?
  2. What are you going to use to lay out the contracts?
  3. Understand how and why you are using contracts so you can communicate it to your clients/students.

Laura’s Wise Words:

“I feel that it’s super important for yoga teachers to have boundaries around what we do and our time — if we don’t we begin to feel resentful.”

“I think it’s really kind to your clients to spell it out for them in a way they understand.”

“If you find yourself in a situation where students question your yogic-ness, you need to explain your stance.”

A-ha’s from Kate:

“Policies teach other people how to treat us.”

“Written agreements are the only thing that counts.”

“If there is money exchanging hand (and there should be — we ain’t doing this for free) you should have a contract.”
