How to Start A Yoga & Wellness Business with Amanda Shipe


Amanda Shipe is the founder and CEO of Mind Your Body Oasis, a beautiful yoga studio and wellness center in Crystal City, Virginia that has a wide variety of offerings including yoga, spa services, nutrition coaching, and yoga teacher training. On this episode, Amanda offers tips on the steps you should take to open your own yoga business (hint: start small). She shares insights on business licensing/permitting, how she collaborates with other yoga teachers on Instagram to promote her studio, and what it’s like to be a business owner while holding down a full-time job. She also talks about the importance of having a good mentor and a support group when you start a new business.

“You need to tap into the social programming of our society when you own a business. You need to be aware of when people spend, when people vacation, and when people’re back in their groove.” – Amanda Shipe
