Thinking About Yoga Teacher Training?

I started writing this post a few months back and never finished writing it. It’s funny coming back to it now because I recently stopped teaching yoga. And by recently I mean, like, very recently — I taught my last class a little over a week ago! And when I say I quit I mean that I got moved to the substitute teacher list…I always like to keep a foot in the door, ya know? It will be a while before I sub for a class.

In the past few years of living on my own since graduation, I’ve learned A LOT about money, and what works for me financially to be able to afford to live the life I want. I’m still no expert, and I have no idea what an IRA is or how the stock market works, but I can tell you how I organize my money to allow myself as much freedom as possible. Here’s my own personal techniques on how to save money, no accounting knowledge necessary! You can also check out my posts on money-saving lifestyle changes and cheap travel tips for more advice!
