This week on the podcast I am joined by Kristine Divall who is a yoga teacher, a mother, and the co-founder of Vinyasa Yoga for Youth. On this episode, Kristine shares what it was like to start Vinyasa Yoga for Youth, a yoga non-profit that brings yoga to schools with troubled yoga in cities across Canada.

She shares the challenges of starting a yoga business in the non-profit sector, as well as the challenges of working with youth in schools, including getting connected with schools, getting the necessary certifications and checks to work with youth, and then finding teachers to teach classes. She also shares what she's learned about the power of word of mouth marketing, the importance of sharing our passions, and having a clear mission with your business. Finally, she shares tips for other yoga teachers interested in starting a yoga non-profit, as well as some of the biggest business lessons she's learned through her career as a yoga teachers and business owner.
