Let’s face it: being a movement teacher is hard.
You finish your training eager to share your love of movement, only to realize that teaching an amazing class or private session isn’t enough.
The part that no one tells you? It's not enough to know how to teach. You have to know how to market yourself and explain your services to prospective students too!
Beyond that, the 2022 teaching landscape is very strange. Instagram doesn't work the way that it used to. Being online feels exhausting and very crowded. Even if you don't want to be online, most of us have to find a way to create at least a partial income stream these days due to shut downs.
Feel like you need support navigating online marketing and selling? I gotchu.
Enter the Total Package Business Mentorship.
A zero-pressure monthly business coaching mentorship that gives you the tools to find your voice and expand your marketing knowledge, so you can feel confident promoting your work in the online space.
What's included when you join...
: A private FB group for instructors only where you can ask me all your burning business questions and connect with a community of like-minded teachers.
Want feedback on a newsletter or workshop description? Gotta question about list building, social media, or how to create a YouTube channel? Not sure how to tell your clients that you’re raising your prices? I gotchu.
This group acts as a mentorship, but casual. Pop into the group when you need a pep talk, want help troubleshooting a business or client issue, or want me to take a quick look at something you are working on.
: Office hours two times a month where you can ask me your questions in real time.
For office hours, we will meet over ZOOM and I'll answer any questions you have - including promotion strategies, list building, scheduling issues, payment processing, or how to pitch yourself to the press. If you can't make the live call, you can submit your questions in advance and a replay will be available.
You also have access to previous office hours calls on the site, which may answer some questions that you have too!
: Monthly webinars where we discuss a specific topic related to business and marketing (e.g. newsletter writing, sales emails, launch strategy, ect) but occasionally there's a movement science one thrown in there too.
Can’t make the live webinar? No worries. You'll get a replay so you can watch it later. Plus, if you have follow-up questions, you can ask them in the private FB group.
As a member, you also get instant access to all past webinars, so you have an entire resource library that grows every month. Some webinar replays on the site include:
- #GetPaid with CJ Kelly: How to create a business model that is a sustainable during and after this pandemic
- Movement interventions to address SI Joint Discomfort w/ Jenn Pilotti
- YouTube Basics for Movement Professionals w/ SEO expert Matt Hook
- Website writing for movement teachers w/ Nikki Naab-Levy
- Email marketing tech SOS + how to use Convertkit w/ CJ Kelly
- Newsletter writing and planning w/ Nikki Naab-Levy
- Ideal client language and list building w/ NIkki Naab-Levy
How do I know if the monthly mentorship is right for me?
Teachers who have had the most success in this program are self starters who make a point of reaching out to me through office hours and the private Facebook group when they need feedback on something or are stuck.
While I have created a number of resources that will guide you through specific action steps on getting established online, I can't do the work for you. However, I am very available as a coach and offer individualized and detailed feedback when asked! I am also happy to point you to the right resource (or even create one when possible) based on what you are looking to achieve.
This program is for you if you are willing to muddle through the learning curve of implementing specific strategies if someone (in this case that would be me) points you in the right direction!
However, it will not be a good fit if you are looking for a specific curriculum to follow every week to build a business, have difficulty completing tasks on your own, or don't like asking for help. I am only able to help you if you reach out to me and I am not a good business babysitter! 😉
What Total Package members are saying...
Celebrating that I got 11 new people in my membership after my January launch!
Like WTF?! How did that happen? I literally had the expectations of 2 or 3. I was so floored and I really owe it all to Nikki and her excellent guidance in helping me figure it all out.

Hey, I'm Nikki. I'm a Pilates teacher, massage therapist, and strength coach with a B.S. in Exercise Science and B.S. in Magazine Journalism. My marketing wisdom has been featured on numerous podcasts including M.B.Om, Practicing Human, and The Mentor Sessions. I've also presented for national conferences and educational organizations included Fusion Pilates Edu and the Pilates Method Alliance.
Beyond that, I have extensive experience teaching privates, workshops, and classes in gyms + Pilates and yoga studios and at one point I owned a physical studio. I know what it takes to transition your in person services to online and have successfully sold online classes and programs + helped other prominent teachers do the same.
In short, I know the teaching side AND the business side and I know what it takes to be successful in both arenas and I'd love to help you build your career.
