if you want to teach at a studio you

00:00:42,480 –> 00:00:44,820
need to show up at that studio the

17
00:00:44,820 –> 00:00:47,010

18
00:00:47,010 –> 00:00:49,260
start to know you if you want to work

00:00:49,260 –> 00:00:50,879
there you need to know what the energy

20
00:00:50,879 –> 00:00:53,879
of the place is like even volunteering

23
00:00:58,320 –> 00:01:00,870
show the owners that you’re interested

24
00:01:00,870 –> 00:01:02,969

you’ve been going to a yoga studio a lot

28
00:01:11,580 –> 00:01:14,159

is to have a big network of people when

35
00:01:27,600 –> 00:01:30,119
you’re looking for your first job so for

36
00:01:30,119 –> 00:01:32,670

37
00:01:32,670 –> 00:01:35,220
teacher training may have an opportunity

38
00:01:35,220 –> 00:01:36,780

39
00:01:36,780 –> 00:01:38,369

40
00:01:38,369 –> 00:01:40,020
they remember you and they call on you

41
00:01:40,020 –> 00:01:41,579
because they met you through the teacher

43
00:01:43,920 –> 00:01:46,470
