Plan Your 2016 for Yoga Teachers + Wellness Pros with Tina Forsyth
If I were to ask you to tell me about your vision for your wellness career or your next big project – you could probably tell me about it easily, with lots of energy and excitement.
Now, if I ask you about how you are going to bring that vision to the light – ask about the planning part – my guess is that excitement will drop off dramatically and the conversation will get a whole lot more difficult.
In order to grow our careers, to manifest projects, and reach our goals, we need to take an honest look at both our assets and our short falls. In the asset column – we yogis are life-positive visionaries. On the deficit side, we tend to lack skills in planning, scheduling, and project management.
But, like your morning yogi habits, or dina charya – you can build the habits you need for better planning.
In this episode of the Yogahealer podcast we have 2 featured guest. Tina Forsyth will outline the basic strategies for planning your 2016 that will have you achieving your vision. After Tina, you'll get a teacher from Jennifer Ayres, head faculty at the Ayurvedic Institute, on stepping into dharma and into goals, even when it's petrifying.

Imagine your tailbone is growing roots.
The bottom of your feet growing roots – connecting to the heart of the earth.
Imagine the roots going all the way down and anchoring there.
Imagine your crown chakra opening.
Allow your energy to flow upwards to the heart of God/Universe/Source.
Imagine you are a channel of light between those two places. Let go of any other stories, identities, and ideas of who you are. You are light.
