Overview

Don't Be an Asshole Yoga Teacher: A Studio Owner's Perspective on the Ethics of Teaching Yoga by Dr. Lisa Dana Mitchell, Marques Davis

Are you interested in becoming a better yoga teacher? Do you own a yoga studio? Are you a teacher-in-training who wants to be more successful in your chosen craft? If so, then this book-the perfect combination of business advice and yoga ethics-is for you.

Discussing everything from pay scales to ishvara prandihana-the practice of surrender-Dr. Lisa Mitchell pulls on her decade of experience in owning yoga studios and teaching yoga to create a guide to a better practice, a better teaching approach, and ultimately, a better business.

A lighthearted and easy read, this book is as accessible as it is eye-opening. Speaking from the perspective of a studio owner, Mitchell addresses controversial topics like how to determine the relative value of an instructor and what studio owners look for when hiring.

Moreover, Mitchell breaks down the concepts of Yama and Niyama-the don'ts and dos of yogic philosophy-and she connects them to their real-life implementation in yoga instruction. Following these practices can help anyone avoid becoming an asshole yoga teacher.
