I have gone to classes in Madison, WI, Chicago and LA. Of course every yoga studio brings peace, harmony, and blah blah blah. To a non-pro, most classes are similar, but either hard or easy. If you just tell people the list of poses you’ll do, you aren’t special at all. Of course teaching 100 people over a weekend is more profitable than 50 over the course of a week. But you have to have your own studio to get invited to workshops. You can’t sell yoga to people—the customers already know they should do it. When you have a steady paycheck, you can focus on helping people instead of drumming up business.And I’ve noticed that people who open yoga studios are probably going to fail. That doesn’t make the studio special enough to compete with the 10,000 other yoga studios around them. This means the differentiator is how the teacher talks during the poses. Yoga classes are like blogs: the information is a commodity and the personality is the differentiator. So the studio is marketing for the workshops and the workshop is marketing of your brand so you get big enough and don’t need to teach studio hours. You need to sell them something else, something only you have: the community you create with the studio, a special type of practice, or maybe exorbitantly priced clothes in the waiting area (which is almost like selling blue jeans to miners during the gold rush). If you want to do yoga, take a class, don’t run a class. If you work for someone then they can worry about sales and marketing and you can worry about direct action.However, I had some plans on which I was considering flaking in favor of being alone, taking a bath, and trying to read again.I say “trying to read” because getting high and cracking open this Junot Diaz book has made me feel dumb, regret never learning Spanish, think “this book must have been hard to write,” fall asleep, and wake up to realize that I am so old that I now fall asleep while trying to read books.
For example, working at a company that sells widgets and being an amazing manager actually improves the lives of employees and their families.Let’s look at some more examples of what happens when your heart and mind disagree with one another.
