Remember that moment when you woke up and realized teaching yoga was a business? Yeah, I do too.
I’m Ava Taylor, founder of YAMA Talent and creator of GET 'ISH DONE, one of our most popular and successful yoga business training programs.
Does it feel like you're treading water—or always putting out fires—but not getting to what’s really important? If you ever wonder what the “secret” is behind the yoga businesses that you admire, we can tell you the answer to that one for free! It’s not magic, it’s not luck, it’s a well-structured plan with focused and simple goals, as well as consistent execution of tasks. It may not sound sexy, but we assure you, it works.
I created GET 'ISH DONE after 10+ years of working with—and building up—household name yoga teachers, studios, and brands, as well as regional rockstars and rookies worldwide. I've distilled all our key wins, learnings, and course corrections into easy-to-use lectures & lessons.
This course consists of 8 video lectures and 15 pages of handouts, homework, resources and interactive worksheets - the actual tools and templates we use every single day to support our clients.
Together in this course we will:
- Identify & plan for the core components of your yoga business;
- Optimize your workweek & schedule;
- Utilize—and leverage—the resources around you so you can level up;
- Learn how to bring your projects & ideas across the finish line—for real.
I created GET 'ISH DONE for the very same reasons I started YAMA: to advocate for and empower yoga teachers in a market that is moving and changing fast, to make it possible to make a living teaching yoga and, in doing so, to bring the tools of wellness to communities of all kinds. I am sharing these tools with you because I want you to succeed. I am sharing these tools with you because we need you to succeed.
Take your yoga business further, faster.
