Happy Mother's Day To All the Beautiful Moms!

It is a gorgeous and sunny Sunday in NYC, after a full day of cold rain yesterday. I feel so much better with nicer weather! If you are a Mom, to children or to fur babies, I hope you all are having a fabulous Mother's Day!

My Mom passed in 2013, and every year since I find Mother's Day to be particularly melancholy. However, as time passes things do get a bit easier. This year, I at least get to teach some Pilates and weight training to my Skype clients! Teaching Pilates always makes me feel better.

My Online Pilates Business

I Am Growing My Online Pilates Business in 2017

I do quite a bit in the online space. For years I have sold Pilates audio downloads, my Pilates for Back Pain eCourse, my 6-Week Programs, and Skype/Facetime Sessions.

But this has always been my side business, secondary to in-studio training.

This year I am committed to taking my online Pilates business to new heights, and ultimately replacing ALL of my studio income online.

That's right, I said ALL of my income!

This will allow us to travel and live wherever we want. It will allow us the financial and physical freedom to leave the US once and for all.

I can reach so many more people this way, spreading the love of spine-safe, good for you Pilates exercise.

To reach this goal, I have enrolled in my friend Amanda Tress' Online Business Accelerator Workshop, which starts next Monday! 6 weeks of immersion, systems creation, and business growing in a supportive group.

I cannot wait to get started!

How to Define Value in the Pilates Business

Value.png

How to Define Value in the Pilates Business

Are your clients happy to pay you? Are you making enough money to meet your needs and wants? What is your "Wow" factor?

I am active in many Facebook groups devoted to Pilates and Fitness teaching and marketing. At least once a month someone asks about what successful teachers, trainers, or owners add to their businesses to make them more valuable in the eyes of potential clients and customers.

My answer is always the same.

You must be the Wow factor of your Pilates business. You must be the value!

This answer seems to bother people. I have been told that I am "ripping people off" by charging a lot for my services. I have been told that there is no way people would gladly pay that much for Pilates unless there is a bunch of stuff added to the offerings.

Other trainers and teachers always ask me what else I offer.

Surely there must be extra groups, emails, meetings? Surely I must offer gifts, bonuses, and other add-ons?

Nope!

I offer me.

And I spend time focusing on how I can make a better me, since I am the value that I offer to my clients.

You see, it is the client who defines value. Let me repeat, it is the client who defines value!

So I spend my money and time on taking great Pilates sessions, on learning from people who know at least as much, if not much more, than I do. I also spend time and money adding to my toolbox - kettlebells and TRX for more resistance training? I got that. Some simple neuroscience based MindMAP coaching? I can do that. Some Reiki to keep you calm and feeling better? No problem!

From my end I promise to be on time, to be responsible, to never harm anyone, and to continually strive to help my clients feel, function, and live better.

Not only do my clients feel, function, and live better, they are happy to pay for their sessions. Not once has anyone looked at me and said, "So Lynda, what else can you give me for this money?"

Not once!

Getting back to your situation, what is your client response? If they bargain, hem and haw, and otherwise show reluctance to pay for your services, that means they are not perceiving value.

That doesn't mean that you and your skills aren't valuable. But it does mean that your clients aren't seeing it.

How to define your value?

Look at things and services in your life where you are willing to pay more money. Better hotels, leather goods, wines, massage therapists, facials? Better medical care, grocery selection, dinner service?

Where you are willing to pay more? What differentiates that experience? What makes it better and more valuable, even though it is more expensive?

Now, apply that definition to yourself and your Pilates business.

Reiki I Class - NYC Nov 15, 2014

Mikaousui-e1415138232923.jpg

Join Lynda Lippin for a Reiki I Class on Saturday, November 15 11am-2pm in NYC's Upper West Side

I love to teach Reiki!

In the Usui Reiki I class you will learn the history of Reiki, receive a traditional attunement to Reiki, and learn to treat yourself and others.

Traditional Usui Reiki begins as a self-practice. The daily self practice, which takes about 20 minutes, will help you stay calm, become more balanced, and move through your life with greater ease.

Usui Reiki can also be done as a treatment for others, using the same principles as the self-practice. Reiki will help others feel better, sleep better, and generally be more balanced. And when you give Reiki, you get Reiki at the same time!

Reiki is great for pain relief, better sleep, greater relaxation, and better focus.

http://gty.im/82255713

Reiki causes no harm, is non-invasive, and can even be done without touching someone at all in infectious disease scenarios.

Best of all, Reiki is super easy to learn and practice!

In this short but sweet class you will:

  • learn the history of Reiki and definitions
  • receive a Reiki I attunement from Reiki Master Lynda Lippin
  • learn the protocols for Reiki self-practice and treatments on others
  • practice giving and receiving Reiki yourself, one-to-one, and in a group
  • upon completion you will receive a .pdf file of your Reiki I (first degree) certificate

Location - 91st and Broadway, NY, NY

Cost = $150.00

I require a $50 non-refundable deposit via Paypal to hold your spot in the class.

This class is full. If you are interested in future classes, please leave a comment.

The balance of $100 to be paid in cash on the day of class. I look forward to seeing you there!
