When they ask me about my perfect future it would be something like this: summers in Italy, winters all around the world being a yoga- and digital nomad and in between a month in the Netherlands. Making websites combined with teaching yoga and doing other things that make the difference and life more valuable for me, others and the world. Shouldn’t be totally impossible, isn’t it? I believe there will always be opportunities when the time is right!
It is also about creating chances. Try to book a yoga minded hostel/hotel, drop the fact that you are a yoga teacher during the check in and maybe you teach after some days for a free bed !
I talked about it with some friends and I offered them to make a list with useful websites. Just in case that we don’t open our own yoga school annex bed- and breakfast on a sunny island in Indonesia. So here it is 🙂
Take care ! Working without the proper visa might result in fines, deportation and even prison (and that won’t be like your hostel). Think about it and if you take the risk stay under the radar by not making too much publicity etc.

- Insurance – It is very hard, if not impossible to find a liability insurance valid all over the world, especially if you’re not resident in a country. It’s important to use a disclaimer/waiver, be very cautious with your adjustments and don’t teach risky poses as wheel, schoulderstand and headstand.
- Balens – coverage abroad, but only for residents in certain countries
All the websites state that it’s good to work on your personal branding. So find a name and start a weblog and Facebook page. That’s why I made this site as soon as I knew a bit about my plans and dreams so I have a bit of content to show once the time is right. Do you also need a site? I know somebody who is very handy in that… hint hint hint…
I also made a page with some tips for your marketing
