Being Yoga Podcast - Episode 14
Nicole Walsh
The Past, the Present and the Future of Yoga

My guest is one of Sydney's most successful yoga studio owners, formerly Body Mind Life and now 'In Yoga'.  We talk about how Nicole built her yoga business with passion, belief and a sprinkle of good fortune.  

We discuss the development of yoga in Australia over the past 20 years, the changes in the industry and the current challenges with issues such as consent, touch and trust.  We also talk about the future of the yoga industry and how yoga teachers really need to find a niche for themselves in order to succeed in building a viable yoga business.

Nicole has evolved from Bikram Yoga to Power Yoga and now has found her passion with Vinyasa Yoga.  We discuss this shift and why vinyasa yoga is such a balanced practice in today's world.

Nicole is a passionate meditation teacher and we talk about the best ways to share and teach meditation in the modern world.  

Nicole has built her new business with her partner and we talk about living your dharma and sharing your life's journey so intimately with another person.
