The Yogi Business Program

Bringing the Yoga Back Into Business

Make A Difference, Make a Profit and Not Burn Out.

It's TIME.  

And you know it.

It has been a helluva year. Pivoting online, figuring out Zoom, teaching without touching. 

It has been challenging, and, you did it.  

Now you are ready. 

It is time to feed and follow that inner itch. That energy that is more than a nudge. That feeling that is telling you that Now is the time. 

You are skilled at teaching, and you know it. 

Ask anyone who has taken a class or private session with you.

You are also decent with basic business stuff.  You have classes and some private sessions.  

You want more, but you feel the inner blocks.  Blocks like:

  • When you want to write copy for emails or social media posts you are still waiting for the right mood, so you can channel the best words possible. But that "in the zone" feeling is rare and fleeting (and honestly, you find yourself doing more dishes than writing - am I right?) 
  • You intellectually understand that marketing is about serving and helping, but more often than not it feels hard, awkward and blocked. 
  • You are inspired by others who are able to publish lots of posts, emails, and courses.  You want that. But you are also inwardly wondering . . . how the heck are they doing that without depleting or burning out?  You are already tapped out - so, how on earth?

The Trick to serving more people and earning more money is not about doing more. 

It is about refining how you do what you do so that you use your time and energy more wisely and effectively.


A lot of yoga teachers will tell me that before working with me they were putting in so much effort to earn what they were earning - whether it was $12K, $20K or $35K.  

They wanted more, but they couldn't see how they could achieve more without dumping in more time and effort  . . . .  they had a life beyond yoga, after all.  

They felt the conflict of wanting more and not knowing how to achieve it in a way that was truly aligned. 

And then they found Yogi Business.


This is what I learned in Susi's business course - how to go from picture 1 to picture 2 in just under 2 months.  2 examples of a Thursday schedule - and guess what? I get the same amount done with less CRAZY! 

Funny looking back at September now, I was wondering why I was overwhelmed.

The Essence of Yogi Business

As yoga teachers and yoga therapists, we are all about helping people. 

Whether it is helping people reduce symptoms of physical pain, manage PTSD, recover from a treatment process like cancer or surgery,  or simply helping someone find their breath . . . . our focus is on deeply caring, and facilitating transformation. 

To do this, we create sacred space. 

We enable a healing relationship. 

This is why you  feel conflict with much of the marketing and business advice out there. They don't honour sacred space or foster a healing relationship.  


I am in training with Susi and I can’t say enough about how wonderful it is to have direct, functional business coaching that works with this hard to navigate business of yoga and have it align with your yoga principles. Teachers before Susi had made it out to be so hard or not achievable to make a living at yoga. I know now that they just didn't know how. Thank you, Susi.


When you combine Yoga and Business, and keep the Yogi front and center, how you do your business will subtly and yet profoundly change.  

Fundamentally you will honour sacred space and healing relationship. This leads to:

  • More calm busy and less chaotic busy.
  • A clearer and more focused mind.
  • Being in flow, more consistently.
  • Current clients referring more clients.
  • Doing the activities you simply know you are supposed to do.  

And because you are more aligned, and more on purpose,  there is less friction, and more connection.

The process will be more fun, more easeful, and more rewarding. 

Yes, it can be that simple.

  • You want to make a living that is meaningful. 
  • ​Believe you can make a living,​ you just need to be shown how.​​​​ 
  • Are tired of asking ​yourself, “Isn’t this supposed to be fun?” ​

this is not for you If you are...

  • Anyone who believes it is impossible to earn a great living as a yoga ​professional​​
  • Not willing to do the work. To make a change, you will need to follow the concepts that are taught. It won't take a lot of time, it will require a sustained commitment.
  • If your schedule is packed from morning to night, it may not be the right time.

Here’s “before and after” looks like for my YogI Business grads:

Ele’s Story

When Ele first heard about my Yoga Business Program, she was a broke yoga teacher earning less than $7000 per year, teaching group classes and struggling to make ends meet.
Now, after finishing the program, she has become a profitable yoga teacher earning $21,000 per year, working 2 days a week, building relationships with private clients and developing relationships with referral sources. 

The majority of her clients are newcomers to yoga and she delights in offering them health and healing through the power of yoga. Her corporate therapeutic classes are priced fairly and consistently full - and she fills almost all of her available private sessions each week. 

Best of all, her clients are getting out of pain and learning tools and practices that help them thrive!

Matthew’s Story

Mathew is a yoga teacher and performing artist. When he signed up for my program, he was teaching 12-15 group classes per week at six different studios for a 32-hour work week that required 12 additional hours of commuting - and he was making a maximum of $35,000 a year. He was burnt out, didn’t have the energy to devote to his art. 

Within a year he was teaching 6 group classes and 10-12 private clients per week at one studio (along with a few home-based clients) and working only 24 hours per week, with two hours of commuting, for an average annual salary of $60,000 – not including special workshops or artistic contracts. 

At the same time, his increased presence and reached as helped his artistic career as well! With his newfound freedom and ease, he is accessing untapped stores of creative power, and has been hired for multiple new artistic projects over the next 3 years.

Josh’s Story

When I met Josh, he was working 75-80 hours a week. He had a retail job and was offering massage part time, as well as teaching group fitness and yoga, and traveling nationally and internationally as a yoga teacher trainer.

Despite all this, he was deep in credit card and student loan debt, dealing with ongoing chronic pain issues, and fast approaching burnout. 

After taking my Yoga Business Program,  Josh was working four days a week 15-20 hours per week. He owned his own Healing House studio where he had ten part-time tenants renting space in the building, and making over in the high high 5 figures. 

Best of all, his work schedule was no longer frantic and he was in a lot less pain. He paid off three credit cards and three student loans and is well on his way out of debt.  These student are proof of what is possible if you follow a proven step-by-step process.

This is what happens when we bring the Yogi Back into the yoga-based Business

I am your instructor, Susi hately

​I have a BSC. Kinesiology and have been helping people reduce and eradicate pain for 25 years. I​ have also been a bridge between the medical world and yoga.  ​​Two of my programs have been studied at ​the University of Calgary and both showed benefit for supporting people and their wellbeing.​  ​

I have been training yoga professionals how to bring the Yogi back into their Business since 2009.  My graduates are quietly going about running and growing businesses that are highly profitable, and don't eat up all of their time.  They love calm busy and not chaotic busy.

Most make between $30-50 K in their first year working with me. Some have gone on to earn well over $100 K.  ​95% get out of debt.

Susi Hately

​HEre are what Other Graduates ​say:

"I was already teaching group classes when I enrolled. With the the help of this business training I leap-frogged my 1:1 client list from 0 to 5 clients a week within 4 months. Absolutely 100000% worth every penny. I am still making more money as a result of her support."


​"I'm about to complete my best financial year since becoming a yoga teacher. It's been on the rise since I took Yogi Business in 2014.  Once you drink the koolaid there's no looking back!"


​​"Susi is an exceptional coach.  If you want to work with one of the best, if you want to work with someone who really wants you to succeed, if you want to work with someone who truly walks the walk and talks the talk, work with Susi. She really knows what she is doing."
