DEEP ROOTED BLISS INTERVIEW
OVERCOMING BURNOUT AND FINDING FULFILLMENT AS A YOGA TEACHER
In 2014 Rebecca Doring, founder and host of the Deep Rooted Bliss Podcast, came to me seeking support. At that time, I had just launched what became my first online offer, called “The Mentorship Mastery Program.” My time mentoring Rebecca was as important to my growth as it was to hers. We were both on the path toward making huge shifts in our career, but of course we didn’t know that at the time. Rebecca went from full-time massage therapist to full-time yoga instructor to where she is today: meditation coach, podcast host, and online entrepreneur.
As for me, in this time I went from teaching full-time in Manhattan to leading workshops and trainings around the US, Europe, and Asia to where I am now, leading online yoga immersions and 200-hour and 300-hour teacher trainings.
Following your passion, your dreams and authentic expression is not as glorious as it seems.
Today, business coaches, entrepreneurs, and yoga teachers alike will glorify self-employment, making it seem like the grass is always greener when you can work for yourself. And indeed I can’t disagree, but if you are thinking of making the leap, or if you already have done so, there are some things you should definitely consider. In this podcast, Rebecca and I discuss some of the struggles of being a yoga instructor and/or entrepreneur, and what you can do to to achieve success without burnout.
I highly recommend subscribing to Rebecca’s podcast, Deep Rooted Bliss, on your favorite place to listen to podcasts. I personally listen in weekly to get inspired to live my life on purpose. She provides incredible insight for meditation, personal growth, and living a life filled with bliss.
