‘Ashtanga Yoga can be taught to anyone by an experienced and sensitive teacher’

New interview with Danny Paradise has popped up out of Italy. Complete transcription is here, and a brief excerpt: I aim to spend as much time as possible in Nature. When I can be immersed in Nature for long periods of time my life force increases and that makes it easier for me to travel, […]

What’s Third Series Done for Me Lately?

Years ago when I took Tim Miller’s First and Second Series teacher trainings here in Encinitas, my favorite part of the discussion of the poses was the moment when we focused on the specific benefits of each asana. In First Series, Tim would also read from Pattabhi Jois’s Yoga Mala, where Guruji carefully describes benefits, […]

How do I market yoga retreats online?

Let’s face it, most yoga teachers (in fact many of the best) are not web savvy and don’t have time/skills/interest in creating a social media presence. Chances are, you don’t have a lot of experience maximizing search engine visibility or running social media campaigns and you’re hiring other people to do this. 

We understand that you would rather be practicing yoga, not marketing it. That’s why we designed NomadYOGI the way we did. It’s a single point of focus to schedule, promote, communicate, and transact. A place where teachers can connect with students and venues (i.e. studios and retreat centers) all inside the system.  (We’re ironing out all our bugs and coming out of our public beta in late 2015. Follow us on Twitter @ NomadYOGI and you’ll see when we launch.)

Our goal is to help you bring your yoga to more people, so we simply unified your work of scheduling, marketing, blogging, and attracting new students. Here’s our new web brochure.

Are there membership plans on NomadYOGI, yet?

Finally, yes!

Our SADHAKA plan is our first membership plan, released in 2015, built for Event Creators who love our free features and are ready to put more events into the directory. We designed it after listening to feedback from our users who prefer to receive reservations on their own websites, booking agents, or current payment processors. However, if you do the math, you’ll find that processing your transactions through our system will quickly reduce the amount of money and time you spend managing your events.

You’ll continue to get all the features of our free YOGI plan:

  • Full teacher profile with Q&A tab and Stream of Consciousness dashboard making it easier than ever to share with your current students and connect with new ones
  • No set up fees
  • Send messages to your followers/purchasers as individuals or as a group
  • Complete calendar syncing for both you and your purchasers
  • Display in rotation of “Recommended” sections based on user preferences

Now, when you upgrade to the SADHAKA plan, you’ll be able to list up to 10 events in our directory, and take payment elsewhere, if you wish. This means that when a student clicks the Buy Now button on your event’s profile page, we’ll send them to the URL you designate to complete their purchase. Unlike our competitors, we won’t charge you anything extra for sending those students to your site.

Just remember that NomadYOGI can handle all aspects of your booking. It’s true. The following features make it easy to keep all aspects of inside NomadYOGI, at no additional cost!

On the SADHAKA plan, charge whichever is less: 3% of the ticket price or $29.95 per ticket. Soon, we’ll offer additional plans that will pack even more features and reduce this fee even lower.

Why The Hell Have We Become So Distracted From Our Own Lives?

Unwasted Mind

I was having a nice discussion with some friends the other day and we were basically having a talk about everything going on in the world right now and how its affecting all of us. We not only dabbled into talking about specific current events that were occurring at this present moment but also things happening in our own individual lives that seem to somehow connect to everything at a deeper level. Personally I have my perspective of it and as I write blog articles such as this one I can slowly unveil what I’ve come to realize about how things that occur around us affect each of us individually as well as our relationships one with one another. Its all a matter of vibrational frequencies we connect to and allow ourselves to be affected by. But in order to understand that takes a brief study of metaphysics, and reading…
