As a yoga teacher, you create a brand in the studio that your students come to rely on.  People choose certain classes simply because of the instructor.  How you behave, what you post on social media, how you interact with clientele outside the studio, also reflect on your brand.  If these are not in line with one another, people will become confused about your brand and what you stand for.  Let's talk all things branding!  Join Tori Jarvis Grant, and Sarah Flynn, Senior VP of Colour for a two hour workshop that will help banish confusion, and give you tools for creating alignment in both your personal and professional brand.
