Mentoring your yoga teachers can quickly grow your studio

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, whether 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 passionate staff dedicated to ensuring 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 owners, 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- doing 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 to discuss the above goals and ensure they are taking steps towards reaching them. If you notice that someone isn't making progress, this could be your chance to help him/her achieve what he or she wants out of his or her career while also helping your own business succeed!

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.
