If you own or are a new owner of a yoga studio, mentoring your yoga teachers grows their careers and your yoga studio
Successful yoga studios across the world, no matter if they are big chain studios or independently owned have one thing in common. The staff of teachers LOVE working there! You won't find a profitable yoga studio where people aren’t happy with their jobs - I can promise you this because every successful yoga studio has a staff that is passionate and dedicated to making sure every member has an amazing experience while in the studio.
In the yoga community, when the word “mentor” comes to mind, typically usually think of a business mentor, but not always about personal career mentors. As a business owner, whether we know it or not, we are mentors to our yoga teachers, staff, and employees.
We all know the importance of a happy work environment, but what about your yoga teachers? Mentoring the staff of your yoga studio can have many benefits including increased happiness and productivity in the workplace. When yoga teachers are satisfied with their own job they enjoy helping others even more- making this such great business practice for facilities looking forward to future success!
Building a successful yoga studio requires putting in the hours with each teacher. As the owner of your yoga business, it is important that you have one-on-one time to chat about their career goals and what they would like to see from the business.
You should have a bi-weekly or monthly meeting with each yoga teacher in order to discuss the above goals and make sure they are taking steps towards reaching them. If you notice that someone isn't making progress, this could be your chance at helping him/her achieve what he wants out of his career while also helping your own business succeed as well!
These one-on-one sessions are also a fantastic time to give and receive feedback between the yoga teacher and yourself. If you have tools that the coach can implement to improve their craft, this is the opportunity to tell them. If the coach has profitable ideas for the yoga studio you may have missed them, and profits, without these sessions, you may have missed out on potential revenue opportunities for your business.
