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.
There’s SO much pressure to be an expert, have an answer for every weird pain question your student comes to you with, and look the part. Not to mention that you also need to be able to market yourself and explain your services to prospective students in order to pay your bills.
What if it didn’t have to be that way? What if you could actually be successful and have fun teaching your way on your own terms?
Enter The Total Package Instructors Edition.
An all-in-one membership that gives you the tools to find your voice and expand your marketing + technical knowledge, so you can upgrade the hell out of your teaching career.
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
This gives you a chance to ask me all of your marketing 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 with myself and other experts in the movement field where we hop on a call to discuss a specific topic related to movement or business and marketing.
You get a chance to have all your questions answered + learn new strategies and exercises that you would in a live workshop without paying thousands of dollars to travel the country to learn this stuff.
Can’t make the 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
How do I know if this style of coaching 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 very individualized and detailed feedback when asked! I am also happy to point you to the right resource (or even create one!) based on what you are looking to achieve.
This program is for you if you are willing to sit down and muddle through the learning curve of implementing specific strategies if someone (in this case that would be me) points you in the right direction!
It however may not be a good fit if you are looking for a specific curriculum to follow every week to build a business or have difficulty completing tasks on your own or asking for help. I am only able to help you if you reach out to me!

Lyssa Winograd, Yoga Teacher
I truly didn't know what to expect and the experience was amazingly positive. I appreciated that you took the time, listened, and were able to hone in on what I can do to move forward. Hearing myself talk it through afterwards with my husband I had an awareness of clarity, grit, and possibility. Thank you for helping me to pull out what has been building within.

Trent McEntire, Director and Founder of McEntire Pilates, Movement Educator
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.
