Yoga Teacher Training - 5 Steps To Set Up An E-Newsletter For Free

Outcome: Set up your own professional e-Newsletter without forking out a single penny.

Purpose: Stay in touch with your students. Promote your other services/products. Offer a weekly yoga tip

Setting up an e-Newsletter for your yoga business is one of the best marketing strategies you can use because the smaller a businesses is the more effective "contacting customers" is as a strategy.

The cost of directly contacting your customers or prospects can be high if you were sending out letters or postcards. It would not only be expensive to send out letters/postcards but would take a lot of your precious time to manage.

The good news is there is a way of contacting your yaga students and prospects without spending a single penny. There is a little known tool on the Internet that allows you to send attractive, professional looking e-Newsletters to your yoga students and prospects. And the best news is that this e-Newsletter tool won't cost you a single penny.

I used to use another e-Newsletter tool that cost me about £150 a year. Not any more!

This e-Newsletter tool will keep your yoga students informed of other services you provide without doing a hard sell. You simply provide a useful tip (e.g. yoga position that good just before going to bed to help you sleep) and at the end of the tip, mention one of your services (e.g. 1-2-1 yoga).

As long as you place your customer's interests above your own (e.g. by offering useful yoga tips), you won't receive any complaints. I am not affiliated with mailchimp in any way.

Right Yoga Postures For Back Pain Relief

Yoga has been constructive in treating varied illnesses including back trouble. Most yoga exercises enable stretching and bracing of the back. However, there are some yoga poses that are of bigger benefit for the back. Here are some of them.

The first one is the corpse pose. It is the easiest yaga pose and is reasonably effective for sciatica patients. This pose is necessary for relaxation of the back. To make this pose you must lie straight on your back on even ground. You must place your arms parallel to the body with the legs flat and joined together. If you'd like you may also bend your knees from time to time. That isn't all; you should do some deep respiring too for relaxation. Breathe in and out slowly while lying down.

Another simple yoga pose you can practice for back trouble relief is the moggy stretch pose. Simply stand straight. Your back should be properly aligned and absolutely straight. Keep your hands below the shoulders and knees straight below the hips. Now gently look down. Your chin should be tucked in so that your gaze is at your navel. Now take a big breath and on exhalation delicately raise your back towards the ceiling. This yoga pose will help you ease out various symptoms of sciatica.

Another yoga pose that may considerably make a contribution in the level of back stiffness and provide sciatic pain alleviation, if practiced on daily basis is sage twist. Begin by lying down with back straight on the ground and legs extended in front. After that, bend your right knee and then cross it over your left leg. The right foot placed adjacently to your left leg should get in touch with the ground. Now, place your right elbow on your left knee. Touch right hip with your left hand and twist just over the shoulder.

Another simple but a touch challenging yaga pose that may help fight back stiffness is the fish pose. Lie down straight on the floor with your legs stretched out. Bend both your knees. Now forcefully place the elbows on the ground. Push your elbows against the ground making an attempt to lift your back as much as humanly possible. Make sure that you don't overexert yourself while practicing this pose. Come back to the standard position and relax for a couple of seconds and then practice again. It is recommended that you do at least four to 5 repetitions at first.

The above listed yoga poses can work wonders for your back and provide relief from the grueling back stiffness. Though you want to practice these poses on a day-to-day basis to draw maximum benefits.
