I'm not a yoga therapist, are these programs for me?

These programs are for any health & wellness professional serious about building their business. While most of the participants in the past have been yoga therapists & specialists, the strategic concepts we uncover will be relevant for any small business or solepreneur or small business owner working in the health and wellbeing space

When do these programs start?

Strategize for Success runs live once a year. In 2021; it runs the four Mondays of February.

Growth Mindset Program starts in March 2021. We meet every month twice a month (the 1st and 3rd Monday nights US). 

Many people prefer to start with the 'Strategize for Success - Foundations of Marketing' program.  That program lays the foundation that I build upon throughout the year.

If you've missed that, the 'Strategies for Success' On-Demand program is available for on-demand purchase.

Do I need to take Strategize for Success in order to join in Growth Mindset Group Marketing calls?

It is not a requirement that you take Strategize for Success before joining in the Growth Mindset calls; however, it is strongly encouraged that you do, as a lot of the foundational elements I refer to will go back to that initial program.

If you're ready to jump into the Growth Mindset program, you do get the On-Demand version of Strategize for Success and I encourage you to complete that program at your earliest convenience.

I'm interested, but I can't make it live to the calls

If you can’t make it live, that’s ok – the recordings and templates are made available within a day of the live calls; and they'll stay accessible through the duration of the year.

Because I work with clients around the world, I’ve tried to choose a time that works for me here in Australia and for North American colleagues. If you are based in Europe or South America, I acknowledge this timing may not be as good for you (apologies).

How much time do I need to commit?

Strategize for Success
Runs across 4 calls (or videos if you're watching the replay) - with each call lasting ~2 hours. You will have tasks that come out of that program that will require a further few hours to complete.

Growth Mindset
Monthly marketing program calls will last 1.5 hours each
Mid-month Q&A and accountability call will last 1 hour
Each month’s call will recommend homework to help you continue forward with your business. You can anticipate this homework to range from 1-5 hours depending on the task and it's relevancy for your business.
Succeeding together
A few things I've learned, across the years as an entrepreneur
  • It's more fun to work alongside others

  • Connecting with colleagues with similar values & beliefs makes us all feel part of the team, even when we're working on our own

  • We learn from each other - your colleagues questions may be the same as your own; and they will have lived experiences that you'll relate to as well

  • Being held accountable to another person (or the group), encourages us to get things done

  • Sometimes life throws us curveballs. We all lived through 2020. Having colleagues there to support you helps you pick yourself back up and keep on trucking!

  • Talk to your customers, test the market, measure your results and when something doesn't work, pivot quickly

  • Sometimes, despite your best efforts, things don't work out. Accept (aparigraha!) and move forwards!

  • Enjoy yourself along the way. There's no destination - the fun, challenge and reward are in the moment. Celebrate the small wins along the way.

A bit about me:
I've built & grown a few small businesses over the years; and been a marketing strategist and consultant to many others over the past two decades. These experiences have taught me a bit about what to do (and what not to do) and the challenges of being a cash-strapped, time-poor small business owner.

I've had some successes, and I've also made my fair share of mistakes, including spending 6 figures on building a fully customized, bells & whistles website that I had to scrap 🙁

Having built over 20 websites in my time and a few personal businesses along the way, I've learned a thing or two about what to do (and what not to do). 

My goal is to help pass along this knowledge to help you be more strategic, avoid some of the pitfalls and help you be more impactful doing this important work.

I host Strategize for Success live once a year, or you can join me in the Growth Mindset Group Coaching Program

My approach is an honest, authentic approach to marketing & business. I'll still be working on Yoga for Better Health and living the journey alongside you, along with colleagues around the world. 

My focus is helping you to make consistent, measurable changes to help you find more success, aligned to what is important to you. 
My background: 
A lifelong learner,  I studied psychology and art in undergrad; followed by grad schooling in art direction and a Masters of Business Marketing in 2008; plus over 1000 hours yoga teacher and yoga therapy training. 

I have worked as a marketing strategist & consultant across a range of industries and as an entrepreneur, yoga professional & mom/mum of two energetic young boys, I know about juggling work and life while trying to make an impact.

I developed Yoga for Better Health (previously YogaMate) because yoga personally transformed my health and wellbeing. Before yoga, I was working as a marketing consultant within the wine industry (another industry that has public understanding challenges!). I enrolled in my first 500 hours of training, wanting to understand how yoga had shifted the depression I'd struggled with for half of my life.  I had no intentions to teach (let alone shift my career trajectory); but after my first year's training, I felt the knowledge gained was too profound not to share. 

I launched YogaMate (now Yoga for Better Health) in 2016, a marketing and professional development platform for yoga therapist & specialists. I've since gone on to develop two apps and founded the Global Yoga Therapy Day.

My focus is on championing therapeutic yoga; building awareness that if you can breathe, you can practice yoga and helping make these tools accessible to all.

I've presented on marketing strategy for Yoga Professionals at international conferences, including three years at the IAYT’s Symposium of Yoga Therapy and Research (SYTAR), the Accessible Yoga Conference, the Yoga Australia Conference and the Global Yoga Therapy Day

I have also been featured in international media and radio; and a guest presenter on podcasts in Australia and the US. I'm presently serving on the faculty at Guru Ram Das Centre and a guest lecturer on marketing strategy with the MUIH Yoga Therapy program.

Before Yoga for Better Health, I worked as a marketing consultant and strategist in a diverse range of SMEs across Australia and the United States, most recently in the wine industry.

I'm passionate about empowering yoga therapists and specialists to make smart, strategic decisions in how to effectively build their business and share this important knowledge. 

I welcome you to contact me to know more and understand if my marketing support is right for you.
