Shakti (n) : Energy, movement, change, power. We love talking about business as much as we love guiding you through a vinyasa. Let's talk further about how we can help you get your yoga business off the ground, fine tune your messaging, and become a better teacher and business owner. 


I (Leanne here) adored each and every training I had to become the yoga teacher I am today. Kids Yoga. Vinyasa. Prenatal. Postnatal. Even weekend Yoga Therapy workshops. The one thing I always felt was missing? Business + Marketing.

When I opened a tiny studio out of our family sunroom, I started with small group yoga sessions and a couple of private clients. I had a Facebook page, a business plan, and a budding newsletter. That's it. For years after, I consumed books, podcasts, blogs, webinars, and more to help create and grow what has become Yoga Dear. And, I'm pretty darn proud of what we've accomplished, and I want to share this knowledge with fellow yoga teachers. After all, a rising tide lifts all boats. Right? 

Aside from teaching yoga and supporting women's health, I am constantly found at the dinner table talking business shop. You need a space to brainstorm your dream client or niche market? You're confused about which platforms to get started sharing your yoga message? You need support setting up systems to streamline your business? You're confused about the difference between branding and marketing? I'm your girl. Eugene's your guy. Let us help.
