Teaching Yoga is beautiful and rewarding gift, however at times navigating the business side of yoga can be a little less enjoyable for some. From the early morning commutes, to the rat race of teaching studio classes, the juggling between admin time and dealing with the consumable woes of social media, teaching yoga in the 21st century is tough, and it’s even harder when you’re doing it alone.

Join Michael James Wong, UK & USA Senior Yoga Teacher, TLC Teacher, Teacher Training Facilitator, Founder of Sunday School Yoga, one the largest yoga teachers community in the UK, BOYS OF YOGA and Just Breathe, as we discuss the wider topic of The Business Of Yoga, and share tips, techniques and advice to navigating teaching in the 21st century.

As a teacher, Michael travels extensively as an international facilitator leading weekend workshops & teacher trainings, in 2018 Michael’s teaching schedule included in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Dubai, Zurich, Stockholm, Goteborg, Munich, Berlin, Bulgaria, Italy, Frankfurt, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Bali with 2 × 200hr Teacher Trainings, 4 × 50hr Advanced Trainings, countless events, yoga festivals, wellness panels and more. Michael also authored and released Sit Down, Be Quiet, his first book on yoga & mindful living in the modern era of yoga. Michael’s forthcoming book will be released in 2020.
