Wellness Pro Podcast with Cate Stillman

Jun 2, 2017

Tune in and learn how to:

  • Encourage students and people around you to step into the fire to enjoy the transformation they have been dreaming of.
  • “Birth” your own program — it’s your “child,” and it’s an intense process.
  • Nurture your career, much like you’re its mother.
  • Find out if your clients are ready to commit — and get them to do it — by digging into their “pain islands” and “pleasure islands”

Show Highlights:

  • 5:22 — Through action, transformation occurs and agni burns off to create lightness. Guidance, assistance, and community arise from these shifts, too.
  • 6:52 — The YHC experience is similar to motherhood. It requires constant attention and nurturing to grow into something that impacts students and communities.
  • 8:48 — It can take a long time, but it’s essential to shift out of victim mode and into creator mode.
  • 11:13 — If you don’t dig deeply into clients’ pain points, they won’t understand the extent of the transformation that is possible. Clients need to be directed towards their potential. Check in with their willingness to be guided to potential.
  • 13:08 — Focus on results, not the services that you provide.
  • 17:45 — Yoga teachers and Ayurvedic Practitioners have a tendency to want to be seen as perfect. And they are often perfectionists in how they show up as practitioners. Ironically Yoga teachers need less perfection and more transparency and authenticity to make attract clients and make a difference.

Favorite Quotes from the Conversation:

  • “I finally got to this point where ‘I know all this stuff now even about business, but I’m not doing it because I don’t have the support community…’ That’s when I decided to actually step into YHC.”
  • “You’re deciphering between the people who…are just wanting to stay at that cognitive level of knowing what they should be doing versus actually making the transformations.”
  • “Now I feel like I have this toddler at home, and I just have to attend to this toddler.”
  • “There’s no room for victim mentality here.”
  • “Willingness has a high vibration.”
