  • How she overcame several injuries to come back to snowboarding and why she finally decided to retire from that life and become a yoga teacher
  • The lessons she applied from her time as a athlete that helped her have a successful yoga business
  • The biggest mistakes new yoga teachers make when they’re building a business.
  • How to overcome the money blocks that many teachers struggle with.
