Alón Sagee is a full-time coach, marketing consultant, writer, trainer, and public speaker dedicated to helping the yoga business community prosper.

After graduating from Rutgers University with an English and Economics degree, Alón entered the corporate world, beginning his marketing initiation as a representative for a large computer company. After six very successful years opening new markets in two countries, Alón undid the tie, took off the suit, bought a backpack, and began an extensive solo exploration of this remarkable planet — a passion that has taken him to over thirty countries to date.

Alón discovered yoga in 1988 through an Indian friend who mentored him in Hatha and Kriya yoga, as well as starting him on the path of Ayurvedic study. Alón has made yoga his daily practice, and finds it to be one of his greatest teachers.

Now, with over 20 years of experience as entrepreneur and corporate executive, having conducted business development training seminars for thousands of fellow marketers, Alón brings his love of yoga, business, and helping others to this exciting new venture.

Rest -- the Bane of the Entrepreneur

Chances are, if you're a business owner, you are ultimately responsible for running the business. Did you ever notice that we call it running a business? To a degree, that in itself points to the unbalanced work ethic that goes largely unquestioned in our western culture. We're always running here and there, planning, doing, putting out fires -- taking care of the never-ending tasks demanded by this thing we've created that's meant to free us from working for someone else and do what we love. Does this sound familiar? Are the tasks and stresses dulling the enthusiasm you started your venture with?

Are you running your business or has it started running you? In yoga practice, if one's mind is racing through the "to do" list, it can be tempting to shorten or skip rest, or what we term "Savasana" in yoga. This is a sure sign that deep rest is what is actually needed. Savasana, or rest, is spoken of as the most difficult to master because it means taming the mind. Even for just a few minutes, it means truly letting go of the list, the worry, the fear... and resting.

To be your best in your life, to deliver the great gift of your business to your community in the clearest, most authentic and energetic way, you need to take care of yourself. Building up agitation and tension without enough deep rest does not serve us, or our businesses. When we don't take the time to rest, we become less effective in everything we do.

What have you been skipping for the sake of your business? Has your mental outlook suffered because "there's no time?" What do you love to do that truly nourishes you that you've hardly done since starting your business?

Take time to nurture yourself today... for business sake!
