SUP Yoga Teacher Training
Offer creative, grounding & renewing yoga experiences on the water.
As SUP yoga has become a growing trend so has the need for experienced and certified instructors. As with yoga on land students are becoming more educated about their classes and teachers. These same students are seeking teachers who have specialty training to offer a safe and fun experience.
With few certified teachers it makes for a high demand in a rapidly growing industry. At Just Be Well Yoga our aim is to offer teachers the skills to safely conduct beginner paddle lessons, SUP yoga classes, and an experience your students will not soon forget. We are passionate about offering the most up to date training available with the best equipment on the market.
Upon culmination of training instructors will be equipped to teach and perform all varieties of stand up paddle techniques, water rescue techniques, adapt yoga to a paddle board, and thorough industry knowledge to successfully run a SUP yoga business.
Upon completion, you will be eligible to use your training for Yoga Alliance CEUs. Instructions on this at the end of your training.
Once registered, anyone can look up your certification and know you are certified and have met all requirements to teach safe SUP yoga, and guide your classes.
Not all yoga teacher certifications are made equal. Yoga instructors have reported learning without a manual!
We know everyone has a different learning style, this is why we created our Paddleboard Yoga Teacher Training Manual. Whether you're Visual, Auditory, or Kinesthetic, this training is tailored to help you learn at your level.
What You Can Expect To Learn At Our Upcoming SUP Yoga Teacher Training...
Students can expect to have a deep understanding of yoga and a full range of SUP yoga knowledge: Posture (asana), breathing (pranayama), paddle technique, water safety. We limit our class size so every student receives personalized attention and have direct contact with their instructor. One factor that separates Just Be Well Yoga from other teacher trainings is our teacher development module.
Most trainings offered only teach you how to instruct classes using their model, and that’s how most instructors fail. We have formulated the practice of finding your teaching voice and style, these two are a major key in your SUP yoga teaching. We help you find a teaching style that you build upon and find your voice teaching flow. In addition we will teach you to lead a safe and well balanced class.

What does the Yoga Business Training Include?
An advanced Yoga Business Training. We will walk you through launching your yoga business, growing, and how to scale your business for growth. These are the following training modules:
Foundation - Welcome to your first module! We will set the foundation of your yoga business, this is NOT a "Business" plan, you will do much more than that. We will make sure you set up you business correctly, have a target audience to make sure you succeed.
Branding - 90% of yoga businesses get this wrong. A pretty logo, Instagram/Facebook account, posting a pretty yoga pose with a quote is NOT Branding. We're going to break down how to build your unique brand to stand out and make sure you are the ONLY logical choice.
Marketing - Posting a flyer or going on social media asking people to sign up for yoga doesn't cut it anymore. Your target market has been bombarded with useless marketing techniques already, they're yoga salesy meter is alway on. We are going to dive deep into advanced marketing strategies that will help you launch your yoga business - studio - online training. We will cover marketing strategies online and offline, and softwares, tools we actually use everyday.
Building Your Tribe - Building a loyal following is KEY when it comes to building your yoga business. We're going to cover what makes up a loyal following and how to use it as leverage to build your yoga business online or offline.
Sales - Okay, this is where i see a lot of scared faces. Most yoga business owners are scared of sales, or being salesy! I get it, asking clients for the sale can be intimidating. The truth is... you don't have to "sell" to build your yoga business. I will show you how to properly use module 1 - module 4 so you don't have to "sale" your students. You will have an unfair advantage that you don't have to be a salesy yoga business, it will feel like recommending a friend to go watch a movie and not "buy my stuff".
Scaling Your Yoga Business - We all get the warm fussy feeling or butterflies when we launch are business, but most yoga businesses fail if they don't have stamina or a scaling strategy. Scaling your yoga business means you pave the way for growth, the last thing you want to do is get stuck and plateau. This module comes in handy when you're a year into your business and you say "what now?, how do I grow from here?"
Retention Strategies - It will cost you more money to gain a client than to retain one. Often the ones you retain will be your biggest promoters and contributors to your yoga business. This is one of my favorite modules, we will cover advanced strategies to retain the clients you worked so hard to gain their trust. It serves you no purpose if you're obtaining a lot of clients and loosing them the next month.
