I am so excited to kickoff 2019 with an interview with Amber Karnes! She is the founder of Body Positive Yoga and the co-creator of Yoga for All online teacher training. Amber is a yoga teacher, ruckus maker, social justice advocate and business owner, who specializes in an adaptive, accessible yoga practice.

On this episode, Amber and I talk about what it means to offer accessible yoga, how you can make your yoga classes feel more accessible through the language and sequencing that you use, what it's like to accept all different bodies and people into your yoga classes, and more.


I am super excited to announce a brand new partnership with Schedulicity! Schedulicity is an online booking software that allows you to do everything from booking clients, to taking payments, to communicating with your clients. I personally love Schedulicity because I can do all of my booking through one easy platform. This week's Schedulicity hot tip of the week is with Anna!

Schedulicity worked with yoga businesses to find out what they really needed to make their business more successful and less stressful. They developed group bookings, online waivers, waitlists and client alerts to help you manage the needs of your students and grow as a business. If you've been wondering how an online schedule can help you with your business, email Schedulicity at or visit for a chat with one of their support rockstars!
