The Yoga Pro Podcast

Feb 24, 2021


Have you been asked to record videos for a studio?  What was the discussion around compensation, time of use, and ownership of intellectual property?  In today’s episode of The Yoga Pro Podcast, I’m going solo sharing my insights as a former movie and commercial actress on why recording videos for a set class fee might not be in your best interest.


[1:19] What happens when you get paid $25 or $30 to record a class

[2:32] The difference between a buyout and a royalty and why it matters

[3:51] Long-term use of your likeness

“If a studio has 15 videos of you teaching that they can recycle through and they have five teachers doing that; at some point, are they going to ask you to stop making videos? And then where's your stream of income?”

[7:26] How movies and commercial payouts work and how it relates to yoga

[8:11] When is perpetual use worth it?

[10:16] What about a contract?

[13:41] Find your worth
