Amanda Kingsmith is a yoga teacher, yoga business coach, a podcast host, and a world traveler. She started practicing yoga a decade ago and after falling in love with the practice she decided to become a yoga teacher.
After completing her teacher training and stepping into the world as a yoga teacher, Amanda realized that she hadn’t been trained on the business side of yoga. Coming from a business background and the corporate world, she knew a lot about business, but not a ton about how to apply it to the yoga industry. She started her podcast, MBOm, on how to master the business of yoga.
Fast forward 3 years later and MBOm is one of the top yoga podcasts and Amanda works with yoga teachers from around the world to help them with their yoga businesses.
On this episode, TK and Amanda talk about the business side of yoga, including how to go from a part-time yoga teacher to a full-time yoga teacher, how to get paid for your services, and the importance of self-care as an entrepreneur.
