- 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:
- What kinds of contracts do you need based on the work that you do?
- What are you going to use to lay out the contracts?
- 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.”
