Health / Managing Your Yoga Instructor Business
« Last post by Dimitroff on August 29, 2021, 06:18:07 PM »
I'm a business oriented man. I'll add this info about how to manage your yoga instructor business.

Should you set up your own business or should your start from a health club?

While working with a health club you have the convenience of working with the clubs equipment and facilities. Moreover you need not commute between clients. You get a head start in terms of receiving a lot of inquiries and plenty of experience. You are also safer from professional liabilities. While working at a club you can also learn faster from experienced trainers.

The disadvantages of working in a health club over your own business is firstly that you get a lower fee, and you must pay up to 20% of your fee from each training session towards the facilities used at the club (for example). You are also not known independently and are part of a larger organization - this can make it hard to create a brand name for yourself later on. While on the job, you may be required to perform other club duties with little returns. If you think that you have an entrepreneur in you, it is best to take a shot at starting your own yoga instructor business where you are the boss and you can set you own targets and goals.

Improve your business skills: When you run your yoga instructor business you not only impart instruction but also must look after the commercial angle of the enterprise. It is important to sharpen your managerial and marketing skills so that you can grow faster as a business. There is a host of information about management skills on the Internet and in various books that you should go over. You will learn something about building your marketing skills in some course. It is a good idea to role play with a co-worker or friend to build your marketing skills. You can ask the friend to play the role of a new client, unhappy customer, telephonic inquiry and follow up inquiry.

Client feedback: Feedback from the client is very important for you to improve your services. You must first get the following survey filled from a new client who has come to you for consultation. The yoga instructor assessment form is an important tool in the hand of the yoga instructor. From the clients feedback you can understand what type of services the customer expects. You also get a broad idea of where the client stands in terms of his/her level of fitness and how much work you will have to put into getting him/her to the desired fitness level.

The example:

What is the main motivating factor behind you joining a training program?

Are you motivated enough to follow a rigorous training regime for up to 2 months with a controlled diet?
Have you been training in the last year. If yes, please describe any improvements in your fitness level?
What are the main things that you are looking forward from the training program?
How many months are you ready to spend to achieve your objectives?

Another important feedback is the yoga instructor review sheet which is filled up periodically by your existing clients. This sheet helps you know whether your training program is going down well with the trainee and how you can improve it. You must ask the trainee to be truthful about the feedback and you should take all criticism with a positive approach.

The example:

REVIEW SHEET
Fill the following Details
What part of your current training program do you like the most?
What part of your current training program do you like the least?

Which areas of your training do you think you need more emphasis?
Are you satisfied with the method of instruction and the knowledge of the yoga instructor?
What do you dislike most about the training program or trainer?
Are you satisfied with the equipment at the gym?

How to start your yoga instructor business

When you enter the market as a yoga instructor, you must be aware that along with a huge market, there is a lot of competition as well. The fitness industry offers a huge potential which can be harnessed by properly planning your venture and executing your business plan according to the book. Some of the important questions you will have to answer to yourself before starting your business are:

1. What kind of training will you prescribe (area of specialization).

2. Where will you conduct the training.

3. Will you run the training full or part time.

4. How you will market the business and which segment you plan to target.

5. How you will insure yourself against professional liabilities.

1. Areas of specialization: Most of the clients you will work for will simply be looking for a Yoga fitness program. However if you think you can attract different segments of the fitness market, you could fine tune your marketing effort and supplement it with additional information and reading to attract one or more of the following specialties:
pre- and post- pregnant clients.
Athletes - Senior citizens.
Women.
Fat loss.

2. Where to conduct the training: Training can be conducted in the home, in the office or in a health club. It can be a good idea to conduct your training in an established and running facility. This can help avoid many of the issues related to marketing and preoperative issues and liabilities. It is always convenient to work at a place which is close to home as it greatly cuts down commuting time. Some other important points you should consider are that there should be enough clients in the area you plan to set up your business and also that there should be some existing health clubs in the area.

3. Decide whether you will run the training full time or part time: It is important for you to decide how much time you would like to devote to your venture. If you are busy for part of the day, then obviously it will not be possible for you to devote the full day. If you are very serious about your business, you can free up your time elsewhere and invest more time, money and effort into the business to ensure it is a success.

4. Marketing your yoga instructor business: When running your yoga instructor business, you must market it properly. Marketing can be a major expense and you should make the most of every penny. Implement the following marketing and sales promotion techniques:

1. Have a small brochure and visiting cards printed. Remember to always highlight your certified logo on all printed material.

2. Mention your full address and telephone number on all printed material and also leave it with all telephonic and personal inquiries.

3. Try to set up a website for yourself. You can start with a free server, if you do not want to invest in independent web space. Set up an official email address for your business. Don't forget the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and SEM (Search Engine Marketing).

4. Visit local health clubs and see how they promote their business. Try to spread the message about your business with people you know, right down to the local hair dresser.

5. Promote your business in local newspapers and fitness magazines. You can also run an advertising campaign for your website. Google and other SEs now has a feature where advertisers can place advertisements to attract customers within a mile or so from their place of business.

6. Ask existing clients, friends and relatives for referrals.

7. While talking to prospective clients, try to put on a professional attitude and dress presentably. Make sure that you have a proper pad and pen ready to explain various features of your program. Keep all the marketing material handy while talking to the client. Give a copy of your brochure to the client at the end of the meeting.

8. If possible place a computer on your table and show the client a few slides related to exercise techniques, or a view of your training program. It will also help to get an accounting software installed in the computer. At least you can do it with a cellphone.

Professional Liability insurance and lawyers: It is always a good idea to get yourself insured against professional liabilities. You can search for a good insurer near your area and make sure that the insured amount will be enough to cover any sort of financial liabilities and legal expenses that may crop up. Even though it is very unlikely that you will ever come across a legal problem during the course of work, it is always better to be safe than sorry. You must also consult a business lawyer before setting up your company, this will help you avoid any legal pitfalls with respect to company formation, payment of taxes and other mandatory business obligations. Two important documents that you must get signed from every client are the yoga instructor agreement and the physical activity readiness questionnaire.These two documents will help you stay away from legal problems and must always be filled up by the client.

Determining the clients' health profile

Another important feedback document is the physical activity readiness questionnaire which should be filled up by the client.

The business of Yoga Training - Steps to a successful sale:

1. Warm up questions and the initial meeting.
Ask questions and pay a lot of attention to what the client is saying. You must try to judge what the client is looking for from the training program. Try to be observant and take notes. Some suggested questions are:

1. What are your training ambitions.

2. How quickly would you like to accomplish your objectives.

3. How committed are you to reaching your goals and how much effort are you ready to put in.

4. Please elaborate on point number 3.

2. Confirm that you have understood the clients needs.

Repeat whatever the client has told you and also explain how the training program will work and how all the objectives will be fulfilled. Explain time frames for achieving the goals and also elaborate on the advantages of being trained by a certified yoga instructor. Explain how you will move along the program and reach the desired milestones along the way.

3. Explain your services and skills.

You must now explain to the client why your services are the best (or good enough). You must talk about your training procedure, your fixed policies, your payment terms and cancellation policies.

4. Give a sample of your services.

If you can show your services in any way this can really help. You could also introduce another client or show documentary evidence of how effective your training programs are. If you have a good physique, give your client a free preview of your body, or show him/her how you can evaluate important health considerations.

5. Closing the sale.

This is the time to ask for the business. You must state your charges and defend the fee with valid points about your track records and certified status. You can ask the client when you should get back to them, or when they will get back to you. This part of the sales process may not be easy for some people, so you can try to role play it with a friend.

6. Handling apprehensions.

You must respond directly to the clients objections with strong and valid points and let the person know that it is a common problem and you can handle the situation. After you have satisfied the client, you must once again ask for business.
 
Keep in mind the following guidelines while making a sale:

a) Identify what makes you better than others. It could be your experience, certified status, price or equipment. Drive home your positive points as much as possible.

b) Try not to go after the competition. Instead talk about your strengths.

c) Testimonials are strong and should be used. Use real testimonials only.

d) Always use your name, logo and phone number/chat program.

e) Remember that you clearly state your services, and how you can help the client reach his goals.
 
Defining a cancellation policy

You must stick to a policy regarding cancellation of appointments by the client. If there is a cancellation within 48 hours of the schedule, you should charge a partial or full value of the training fee. You should show consideration towards illness or family emergencies. You must show that your policy cannot be changed and explain the policy at the time of accepting the client so that there is no ambiguity later on.
 
Billing and fixing rates

It is a better idea to get a prepayment for training rather than individual payments for each training session. It may also be easier to enforce your cancellation policy as well as for the client to pay in one go. If prepayment is not possible, get the payment for each session. You can offer an invoice to the client, and make sure that you keep a carbon copy of it. Before setting your rates, you must do some research. You can start by charging a little over the local health club rates. Be sure not to undersell yourself. You must also keep in mind your expenses and expected incomes as per your qualification and experience. Check the following factors related to competing health clubs and trainers in your area before fixing your rates:

- What do the health clubs charge for Yoga Training

- What do the independent yoga instructors charge for Yoga Training

- Do discounts for large packages prevail

- What do they include in their services

- What positive marketing factors do they have such as certified trainers or new equipment

- Where do they conduct the training

- What is the spending capacity of the people living in the area

Your rates will send out an important signal to your clients about your level of service. If you charge too less, it could look like a cheap low quality service, charging too high will look as though it may not be worth it. Make sure that you charge all clients consistently.

How to create long terms client that stay for up to a year: it is important that your existing clients stay with you. This helps to build up a roll over income which ensures you a steady income every month. Not only does it lower the pressure for you to hunt for more clients every month, but also adds to your bottom line as the existing clients pay you without any additional marketing effort or expense. Some important factors that help keep your clients stay with you are:

1. Put in your best effort and survey the client to understand whether he trusts you fully. Build trust with the client.

2. Always train on time every day. If you come late, it will be a huge demotivating factor for the client.

3. Understand the client's goals and keep reminding the client that you are on the path to achieving the goals.

4. Constantly ask the client to review the training program and improve as soon as you find a deviation from the clients expectations.

5. Work closely with the client to build motivation. Train by example with a hands on approach.

6. Talk to the client after every training session and summarize the work done and the work ahead. Try to get the client to think long term in terms of training with you.

7. Try not to make the training routine boring. You can break the monotony by adding a few interesting exercises or narrating an experience attached with an exercise.

Good luck!!! 8)

Inverted Yoga Asanas

So glad to start today with the inverted Yoga asanas!  The asanas in an upside down position are called inverted asanas. In this upside down position, the gravitational force is on your head. This stimulates the blood supply towards your brain. This position also stamps out different toxic substances from the body. Besides, such asanas perk-up your metabolism and invigorate the pituitary gland, lungs, and the kidneys. Shirshasana (Headstand Pose), Sarvagasana (Shoulder Stand Pose), and Adhomukha Vrikshasana (Handstand Pose) are some of the key inverted asanas.

В колибата на мъдростта

Автор: Джисър Каралтай
                                                                                       
-3-
- Бате Джей, а ти защо играеш тото? - попита един от феновете-младежи, - Чувам да казват, че тотото е данък, който плащат тези, които не са учили добре математика в училище. Пък ти не си бил сигурно слаб ученик. Знаеш ги какви са малки шансовете.
 - Знам ги даже колко точно са малки. - рече Джей загледан през прозореца замечтано, представяйки си се спечелил от лотарията.
 - Вярно ли? И колко, колко? - попитаха няколко от останалите.
 - Не ми се вади елката да смятам. - рече мързеливо той, - Обаче, ето колкото да получите обща представа... Комбинациите при 6 от 49 са около 14 милиона, тоест шансът е около едно от 14 милиона да сте вие печелившия, ако пуснете които и да са 6 числа.
 - Ако пусна две, тогава е две към 14 милиона, нали? - свери си правилността на математическите познания един от по-малките.
 - Точно така. Около две към 14 милиона или около едно към 7 милиона, което е едно и също. - отговори му батето.
 - Добре де, - обади се пак първият, който бе започнал този разговор, - Ама като го знаеш даже колко е микроскопичен пустия му шанс, защо си даваш парите?
 - Защото няма в какво друго да ги вложа тези малко пари. Даже и с години да спестявам тези пари, най-накрая, като ги поизяде инфлацията няма да са останали повече отколкото струва една пералня или един хладилник. Не искам да съм от тези, които после някой ще обвини, че само са се надявали да успеят, без да направят нищо; без дори да са опитали да си купят един лотариен билет. - усмихна се Джей.
 - Аз пък се чудя защо някои играят цял живот и не оцелват шестици, а други пускат само един фиш и веднага оцелват шестицата. - обади се един по-философски настроен младеж, който най-много обичаше да идва в колибата на мъдростта.
 - Чист късмет. - отвърна веднага батко Джей, - Разбирайте го като чиста случайност. Ето ви ги няколко примера. Днес шестицата спечелил някой, който пуснал за първи път един фиш. Утре шестицата улучил някой, който пък пуснал за десети път два фиша. След това пък някой, който играл тото 30 години. Всякакви печелят. Случаят, в който някой пуснал и спечелил от първия път е случайност, каквато е и онази, че някой пък спечелил след 30 години пускане на фишове. Повечето хора не печелят нито от първия фиш, нито от втория, нито от онзи, който пускат след 30 години игра на тото.
 - А не е ли малко странно? - попита един, който досега не се беше обаждал, - Ако някой играе с години и не печели, а пък друг от един-два опита и вече спечелил?
 - Няма странно, всъщност... - замислено отвърна батко Джей, - Просто шансът е константен; неизменен, един и същ. За да си го представите, вземете за пример едно зарче. Само 6 числа. Всеки път шанс едно към 6. И да речем, че залагат или си играят на познаване някои. Бай Борис примерно почва да играе от по-рано и залага на "1". Има шанс едно към 6. Пада се "2" и губи. После залага на "2" (пак със същия неизменен шанс), но се пада "5" и пак губи. Така няколко пъти. Идва друг играч - например бай Слави - който залага на "4" и си има шанс, както винаги при зара, едно към 6. Бай Борис също продължава да играе и за кой ли път, залага пак. Избира си, да речем, "5". Какъв е шансът на бай Борис? Ами същия като този на бай Слави - едно към 6 - независимо, че играе от по-рано. Зарът си е зар. Шест страни, все шанс едно към 6. Константно. Това е. И да се върнем към бай Слави и бай Борис, които са заложили и са с един и същ шанс. Ако се падне "1" и двамата губят, ако се падне "2", пак и двамата губят. При "3", отново и двамата са губещи. При "4" печели нводошлият бай Слави. При "5" пък печели дълго игралият бай Борис. При "6" - същата история, както и при "1", "2" и "3", тоест и двамата губят. Нещо странно да има?
- Е, така като го обясни напълно го разбрахме и няма нищо странно. - отвърнаха му няколко от присъстващите и прозвучаха почти като в Сократов диалог.
 - Е, хайде сега отново да се върнем към лотариите, които са обикновено с шансове едно към милиони. Някой играе за първи път и има шанс едно към милиони. Друг играе за хиляда и шестотен път, но пак си е с шанс едно към милиони. Кой ще спечели? Най-вероятно нито един от двамата няма да спечели и този път. Най-вероятно ще спечели някой трети (който едва ли ще е точно от тези две крайни, малки групи от играчи - пускащите за първи път фиш и пускали с десетилетия). Но ако е някой от най-многобройната група пускащи тото (тази на хората, които не играят за първи път, но и не са някакви старци с 30 години опит в лотарията), просто няма да е толкова интересен за медиите. Друго си е сензацията "Пуснал фиш за първи път и спечелил!", нали?
 Много от младежите се оживиха. Ясно беше, че Джей е нещо като експерт по темата. Заваляха въпроси, които получаваха своите бързи и точни отговори:
 - Има ли начин да се познаят числата от тотото?
 - Няма. Случайността по дефиниция (сиреч - по определение) е непознаваема. Същото като с хвърлянето на монета или на зар. Ако сега се е паднало "ези", следващия път не се знае дали ще е пак "ези" или "тура". Ако сега се е паднало "1", не се знае дали следващия път ще е "2", "3" и така нататък или пак ще е "1".
 - Вярно ли е, че ако човек пусне числата "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6" има същия шанс както, ако пусне някои по-различни като например "2, 10, 15, 19, 31, 44"?
 - Абсолютно вярно. И едното и другото са просто една комбинация. Шанс едно към около 14 милиона.
 - Има ли начин човек да си подобри шансовете?
 - Само един-единствен начин - ако може да има достатъчно пари да пуска колкото се може повече комбинации, без да банкрутира. И пак шансът си остава прекалено нищожен, колкото и много да купиш. Дори хиляда да купиш, какво? Хиляда към около 14 милиона или, което е същото, около 1 към 14 хиляди...
 Всички се умълчаха...

"Самоидеализиран" и др.


 Преди малко, когато пишех друг пост, написах думата "самоидеализиран" в едно изречение. След това потърсих онлайн има ли нещо писано с тази дума и не открих никакви резултати, та вероятно това ще е първият път, когато тя ще се появи в интернета. :)
 Самоидеализиран е прилагателно, мъжки род, единствено число. Ето го и в останалите родове, числа, а и в членуваните форми:
 самоидеализирана, самоидеализирано, самоидеализирани, самоидеализирания, самоидеализираният, самоидеализираната, самоидеализираното, самоидеализираните.

Как да се пазите от К. (Част десета)

 Според мен К. е толкова неуспял, че директно и честно съм му казвал, че минава по всякакви определения за лузър. Той сам се е наричал и "магаре" и "син идиот" (да поясня, че "син" не значи цвят тук, а дете от мъжки пол, т. е. "идиотски син"), та в определени моменти той самичък си се самоосъзнава като неуспяващ, неудачник, лузър. Последният път, макар и по по-мек начин, също си самопризна, че нищо не постига в този живот с думите - "Да започна и аз най-после да го живея този живот!" В повечето случаи обаче настръхва, подскача, става му зле, ако вие му кажете, че е нещо такова - не търпи обективност и приятелски критики дори! А обективно си е наистина в не много добро положение - стар ерген, бездетен, без бизнес, с дългове, с липса на стабилни отношения с хората, с някакви приходи които обаче не му позволяват да се закрепи имуществено и да се види без дългове, с влошено и влошаващо се здраве и с лека-полека погрозняваща външност. Това не е ли неудачник, лузър?

 Ще дам и други примери:
 1. Веднъж, според каквото ми е говорил, писал и каквото гледах при него като знания и постижения по специалността, която си е избрал, му казах, че е вероятно средно добър в тази област. К. се жегна и почна да обяснява как бил много добър, как не сме го оценявали, как все бил недооценен. Въобще иска да го имат не за средно добър, а за много добър. А понякога и за най-добрия! Няма да забравя как се изкара един път най-добрия от всички електротехници в България - само той можел да оправи и обезопаси електрически дома си, всички останали в държавата, които се занимават с ток не разбирали колкото него и нямало да го направят добре колкото него!
 И същия този човек по-късно ми писа, че му омръзнало да е "все на опашката" (все да е последен по постижения/достижения)!
 2. Един друг път пък започна да се обяснява за пореден път колко много добър бил в сферата на сайтовете (софтуеър, уебмастърство, програмиране). Специалист се водел, дори специалността му била почти едно и също с тези неща. В действителност, това което е учил и специализирал има толкова общо с правенето на сайтове, колкото примерно биологията с микрохирургията или пък химията с фармацевтиката! Да, ама той си мисли, че хората са тъпи и ще му вярват на измислиците с голямата близост на неговата специалност с уебмастърство, програмиране, софтуеър. Веднъж само, по някакво чудо, си призна, че в неговата специалност учили само базови и най-общи неща за уебсайтове и от сорта. Трябваше много време да изгубя с него посочвайки му елементарни грешки в бивши и настоящи сайтове, за да се усети малко. А щом аз, който не съм голям специалист и съм самоук по отношение на сайтове, HTML, SEO, SEM и още малко от нещата онлайн, мога да му намеря грешки, смятайте какво става, ако някой наистина специалист реши да го оценява в тази област! Разбира се, не казвам, че нищо не разбира - той е над средното ниво на обикновения човек - може да намери примерно някои добри решения на проблеми онлайн, може да сглоби даже нелош сайт и може да намери отговори на много въпроси поне онлайн като се разрови. Просто давам за пример непокритото му самочувствие и надуване, което контрастира на ниската му самооценка, когато застане сериозно и ви каже, че не е учил професионално по тези неща.
 Изводи: Той няма да ви даде да бъдете честни с него, да му направите приятелска критика и ще иска винаги да ви кара да си мислите за него като неповторим, голяма работа, идеален направо. Да, ама и това не е стабилно при него, защото даже и да си мисли, че го мислите за такъв, пак ще влезне в противоречие със себе си заливайки ви с оплаквания и жалвания кой го заболяло (душевно или физически), колко много идиотите го прецакали за това или онова (защото той никога не е виновен, има външен локус на контрол - нещо, което ще обясня в следващата част, живот и здраве), колко светът е крив и несправедлив, как е на пашката, как пак не му се получило нищо, какви кошмари имал, как се скарал с поредния приятел или роднина... Е, вие си преценете струва ли си от една страна да ви прави на глупаци с някакъв самоидеализиран собствен образ, а от друга страна да ви залива с обективните си лузърски истории и да му ставате кошче за душевни отпадъци?

Очаквайте продължение.
