or log in to view this course.


Your ability to maintain and model a balanced lifestyle for your students is paramount as a yoga teacher, yet too many times the yoga teacher is the most stressed out person in the studio!


What does it mean to create a sustainable teaching schedule?

  • It's about efficient time management
  • It’s about making an honest assessment of yourself and your priorities
  • It's knowing and empowering yourself to choose your teaching environment
  • It's being aware of your financial goals and creating a truly rewarding path for your teaching career that balances out with your personal life.

Problems such as teacher burnout, stagnancy, resentment, lack of time for practice or professional enrichment, and difficult finances are often due to neglect of such consideration.

Ideally your teaching schedule should allow ample time for your practice, personal development, leisurely pursuits and time with family and friends. Imagine how much more energy you might have teaching at the time of day you're most mentally focused? And what if you could work with exactly the demographic of student you serve best? In an ideal world you are doing what you love, while at the same time being able to live - and by that we mean earn a sustainable living.

Through some self exploration and time-tested wisdom from long time yoga instructor, Gina Caputo, RYT - you will turn your teaching schedule inside out and outside in to create a schedule that nourishes you and your students on every level!

What's in this course?

Gina delivers the course in a step-by-step fashion beginning with a self assessment, followed by a thorough exploration of how to find the right places to teach, and ends with a plan on how to create an optimal, sustainable teaching schedule.
