On this week’s episode

  • On this week’s episode of You Have a Cool Job, we talk to Katrina Gustafson. Katrina owns Karma Yoga Center, a boutique yoga studio with a traditional style. Katrina talks about how her goal with her studio is to incorporate the mind, body, and spiritual aspects of yoga, rather than just the physical.
  • Katrina shares how she utilized local small business resources to start her business, after gaining experience through another studio. She explains why there is a high turnover for yoga teachers, and shares how she navigates this.
  • Karma Yoga has a spiritually-focused, traditional style, and Katrina also talks about how she teaches yoga and expects her teachers to instruct their classes in this manner. She shares the demographic of her clients, and what people come to the studio to gain. Katrina also gives advice for entrepreneurs like herself, urging people to follow their dreams.

About the show

You Have a Cool Job is a podcast hosted by Taylor Sienkiewicz from Peterson’s. The show highlights professionals who have a unique, interesting, uncommon, or otherwise cool job.

Our goal is to motivate you and show how interesting, fulfilling, and anything-but-average your career can be, and we’ll do this by talking with people who took a path less traveled. We ask these fascinating individuals how they got to where they are in their career based on their education, experience, and influences;  why they love their job; and lots more.
