Hello Annette Eliza,
That’s great news; I hope the success continues. I personally do not use online training; we are still old school and prefer the personal, face to face, one on one training. Hmm, face to face is done with computers; okay, in person training.
I would like to hear your feedback; how is this working for you and your clients?

I have just started to offer online training as an option.
I plan to instruct people in the MELT techniques and think of instances when people do not have access to a trained instructor and are wrestling with getting the techniques by using the book or the DVD. While hands-on is still me preferred way of training, an online class is still a great option for people who otherwise cannot get any instruction at all.
Other than that, I may include online training for existing clients. One of them recently had to move away , and she is a candidate for online personal training because I know her well.
I’m in the process of setting up a website where yoga teachers can upload audios of their yoga classes for free. Each time someone clicks on one of your audios you will make money.
It’s a great way of creating “passive income streams” simply by connecting a ┬ú45 lavilier microphone to a smartphone and clicking the record button.
It can quickly morph into a pretty nifty “online training program” for your students. For example, if one of your students is struggling with sleeping and you’ve recorded a class called: “15 minute nighttime yoga routine to help you sleep like a baby”, you could simply let the student know how to access it online.
Here’s another example…
If one of your students approaches you with an issue (e.g. lower back pain), when you get home you could whip out your phone, insert the lavilier microphone, record yourself doing a 15 minute “yoga for lower back routine”, upload it to the website and then send an email to your student letting them know its available online. This way you not only created a raving fan (who will start sending you lots of lovely referrals), you’ve also created a passive income stream (people all over the world will be able to download or stream the audio).
