Having lived and breathed the challenges and joys of running a yoga center, she is uniquely qualified to mentor studio owners and their managers.

As for the actual design please read below.
The book is geared toward the booming number of yoga teachers who are being trained throughout the US who are considering opening a yoga studio. We are looking for a book cover that is attractive to yoga enthusiasts so a good mix of "lightness" "yoga-themed" and "professional" Our original idea for the cover is attached but we are totally open to any type of design. Its important that the cover look "professional" "clear" and "yoga-themed" We like the drawings of the figures and the concept behind each yogi thinking of something different with the woman in the middle thinking of her yoga studios grand opening. But the font looking hand-drawn was not appealing, so we definitely want a more traditional font. In the end we are very open to new ideas and are looking forward to seeing people's designs.
