Two Day Course and Webinar

Storytelling with audio is a powerful thing! Audio activates the imagination of the listener – as we listen we create our own pictures. In addition, most people consume podcasts through headphones, and this creates the possibility of a direct one-to-one dialogue between you and the listener.

And this is what makes podcasts so good and so effective! They’re also quicker, easier and cheaper to make than video.

And podcasts have a lot of uses…
● short guided exercises or tutorials
● discussions
● interviews
● a series on a theme
● news & updates
● commentaries
● storytelling
● readings

In this two-day workshop, you will learn all you need to know to create and promote your own podcast. You can sign up for one or both days.

Sat On A Mat is aimed at you – yoga teachers, holistic therapists and practitioners, artists, musicians and all small business people who want to apply digital and media tools with awareness and authenticity.

Cost

Course: £125 per day or £200 for both days

Webinar: £20 per day or £30 for both days

Approached consciously promotion is just speaking from your heart about the way you can uniquely serve others. It is about telling people why you love what you do and how it may help them.
