“What is the feeling you want your yoga students to walk away with?” ~ Shannon Crow
[3:00] The first step is to think about the minimum number of people you would like to have in your yoga offering.
“We definitely want to take a look at the money side of things in this, but we also want to take a look at ‘what does it feel like to show up and teach this number of people?’.” ~ Shannon Crow
