But, even when I’d resigned myself to small classes, people kept coming. They were showing up exhausted, stressed out, frustrated and tired.
They sheepishly admitted they didn't want to work out. They were coming to my classes to replenish their energy.
And they started telling me why.
Slow practice was doing something for them. It helped them reduce pain, sleep better, gain greater ease of movement, more flexibility and strength, a calmer nervous system, a better relationship with their body, a stronger mind, a deeper connection to their spirituality, use less alcohol and drugs, or medication, and more.
I intuitively knew these were related to the incredible health benefits of slow practice but I realized that I didn’t have the tools I needed to quickly get new students fully onboard.
So, I narrowed it down to 2 critical things I was missing:
1 - The science behind the health benefits of slow yoga; and
2 - How to explain and convince students of the benefits
I set out to uncover the science and develop key talking points. It took me YEARS! Years of painstaking work to curate the research and craft my message. But I did it. I figured it out. And it has been totally worth all that work.
I’ve been able to expand my business and build a solid following of yoga teachers, health professionals, and students who understand the value of slow movement and are passionate advocates of my particular brand, which I call “Subtle Yoga.”
My students totally get it. They’ve transformed their lives and they’re helping others do the same.
So now my mission is to share these tools with you so that you can easily and effectively differentiate yourself from “fitness yoga” and share the convincing science behind these practices.
