Pivot Retreat

Peer mentorship for solo business owners
who are reinventing their work

October 31-November, 2024
🌄 Free Union, Virginia
Hosted by Amber Karnes

Spend 5 days being part of a small-but-mighty brain trust of solo business owners who are pivoting our work. It’s a combination work-vacation event where you’ll meet other folks who are reckoning with change and reinventing their businesses. Together we’re gonna reflect on what’s working and what’s not, give each other support and inspiration, and leave feeling connected, rested, and grounded.

Hi everyone, I’m Amber. I am the creator of Body Positive Yoga. Thanks for checking out my website. I wanted to post a little update since it’s been a while!

What happened to Body Positive Yoga?

Body Positive Yoga was an events-based business. Things took an unexpected turn in 2020 when the pandemic hit and I could no longer travel. I haven’t updated this website in a long time. The momentum of life is really something.

I’ve been spending the last 4 years supporting other solo business owners through business coaching and marketing strategy and helping the yoga community move online during the pandemic.

Now in 2024, I’m no longer making a full-time living as a yoga teacher. I’m rolling out some new work which includes the Pivot Retreat for folks who are reinventing their work, marketing clinics for solo business owners, a surfing retreat for complete beginners, a community called the Double Dog Dare Club, and a few more fun things too.

What’s next for Body Positive Yoga?

I still have my chair yoga program and yoga class membership online. I may still lead yoga retreats from time to time.

This site will stay online and I envision it being an archive of resources for students and teachers (I’ve got lots to add).

2024 is a time of experimentation for me as I find out how I want to work in the world, and come to grips with the massive changes in my life over the last 4 years (including a divorce after a 20-year relationship, moving house 4 different times, and lots more).

I hope you’ll follow along! You can learn more at amberkarnes.com.
