Who can teach on MOJO Yoga?
Anyone who is 200 hour level or higher certified can teach for MOJO, as long as your classes adhere to our video guidelines.
What can I teach?
You can teach whatever style of yoga is in your wheelhouse. Teach what you love, and it will show in your videos. While we will do some promotion of you and your videos, you will also be promoting yourself to your own audience to gain memberships (i.e. through social media, existing students, retreats, word of mouth), so keep in mind creating videos that you know your personal audience will enjoy. As long as it adheres to our video guidelines, your content can be a part of MOJO Yoga.
How long is a typical MOJO video?
Our videos range from 5 minutes to 3 hours. The length of the videos you create is up to you, but the 30-60 minute videos typically get the most plays.
What equipment will I need to create instructional videos?
Visual and audio quality are important to us (we have the right to reject video who's quality we deem sub-par). That being said, you can still create good quality footage without spending any money on equipment (think: your smart phone and voice-over in a video editor such as iMovie). However, in general, the better your equipment (video camera or DSLR camera, microphone, lighting, etc.), the better your videos will be.
Who edits the footage I create?
You do! You are the creative force behind your own instructional videos.
Are there any resources available for MOJO teachers?
Yes! We offer a series of manuals and videos designed to help you get started. You can also join the MOJO Yoga Teachers Facebook page and ask us or fellow teachers any questions you may have.
How do I earn money?
Depending on what level teacher you are with MOJO you can earn money in the following ways:
Through the MOJO Yoga affiliate program, you will continue to receive monthly compensation for the members you bring to MOJO Yoga for as long as they remain a paying member. (Which equates to PASSIVE INCOME for you! Woohoo!)
By creating and selling courses
Offering live one on one and or group classes
How do I increase the amount of money I make through the MOJO Affiliate Program?
While we here at MOJO Yoga will do some promoting for you, the majority of memberships you gain will come from you promoting yourself. The more members who sign up through your personal page, the more money you will make. This means using any outlet you can to let others know they can have access to your classes anytime, anywhere by signing up for MOJO Yoga. You can promote yourself through your personal social media (such as Facebook and Instagram) , tell your existing students at your yoga studio or retreats, or generally shout it from the rooftops.

What is the best way to practice with MOJO Yoga's virtual classes?
One of the great things about MOJO Yoga’s online service is the convenience of being able to practice with us anytime, anywhere. Here are some tips to keep in mind that will make your practice experience more effective and enjoyable.
Always be sure to consult a physician before embarking upon a new program that involves physical movements, especially if you have an injury or condition. Virtual classes should not take the place of in-person instruction with an experienced teacher.
Clear your practice area of distractions. Turn off the radio, your phone’s ringer, and any other programs or sounds that might pull your attention away from your practice.
It’s best to practice yoga at least 2-4 hours after your last meal. If you can only practice right after eating, try a meditation or Relax Deeply class.
Yoga is best barefoot! It’s essential to be able to feel the ground with your feet the same way you do with your hands.
Wear comfortable clothing that does not inhibit your movement or full breathing.
Stop practice and rest if you find it challenging to breathe comfortably, if you experience sharp pain, if you find yourself shaking, or if you feel like you can no longer create action in the pose.
Make use of the video’s control features to rewind, fast forward, pause, or control the volume to a comfortable level.
Always be sure to take a Savasana! Even if you’ve only done a short practice, lie down and rest for a least a few minutes afterward to reset yourself before moving on to other activities.
Have fun! Yoga helps us to develop more compassion for ourselves. Take each practice slowly and know that with consistent, patient effort, you will discover immense rewards.
What are props? Do I need any?
MOJO Yoga often utilizes props to help us make the work more accessible and customize our environment to suit our needs. Props include blocks, belts, blankets, bolsters, folding chairs, and head wraps. Sometimes we use an Iyengar rope wall, an inversion swing, a stool, or other more specialized props. If you don’t have the exact props available that you see in the video, grab a household item that closely matches, such as pillows, books, crates, scarves, regular chairs, etc. Get creative and do what you need to serve yourself!
