My story probably starts a lot like yours.
I’ve got the moment where I took the yoga class that would change the course of my life forever.
I’ve got the passionate but enduring love affair with the practice.
And I’ve got the decision to share yoga with the world by becoming a teacher.
I was living as an actor in New York City at the time, and I remember saying to myself: “I need to do something that fills my cup every single day.”
Teaching yoga was that something.
The more I taught yoga, the more I thought about yoga, and I started digging deep, on and off the mat.
As part of my journey, I worked with some incredible coaches: health coaches, life coaches, business coaches. Before I knew it, I was using the yoga practice and the tools I learned through coaching to help others find their own transformations. I was ready to take this work to the world and make a difference in people’s lives.
And when I thought about who I could help the most, I thought about yoga teachers.
Yoga teachers are some of my favorite people in the world. They’re thoughtful, curious, and generous of spirit. They’ve got a wanderlust that leads them to interesting and unexpected places.
But there is another side to being a yoga teacher.
It’s the side we don’t like to let our students see.
It’s the side we hide from family and friends, and even from one another.
Teachers who graduate from training and don't know how to land their first teaching gigs
Teachers who perpetually “need more training” before they will be ready to dive in and start teaching
Teachers who feel like they need 10K Instagram followers, the perfect body, a fully-branded online platform, and an “enlightened” attitude 100% of the time to be successful
Teachers who struggle to pay their bills each month, and who don’t plan trips or vacations because they can’t afford to sub out their classes
Teachers who accept that being undervalued is the price they pay for doing work they love
Teachers whose overcrowded schedules don’t allow them any time for a meaningful personal yoga practice
Teachers who can’t see themselves living this way in 5 years, but aren’t sure what they want next or how to get there
Edge of the Mat’s purpose is to help yoga teachers just like you.
Build a better yoga business, one where you’re never overwhelmed, disconnected, undervalued, or maxed out.
I’m here to give you the tools and strategies you need to design a teaching career that is financially sustainable and spiritually rewarding, and to do it on your own terms.
In short, I’m here to help you fill your cup. When you do, you step into the incredible potential you have to serve your students and your community. The world becomes a little brighter and a little better.
