Word of mouth is a yoga teacher’s best friend and with word of mouth, local networking is never far behind.
As a teacher we all know that our duties extend far past the 60-90 minutes we spend teaching in the classroom. In fact, the majority of the business stuff is done from coffee shops, couches, and home desks. In your non-teaching time you should be spending time networking on a local level. And that’s exactly what this month’s #teachasanachallenge is all about.
Pick one organization, individual, or news outlet each week for the month of January and network. Pitch a collaboration idea, stop by and make an appointment to chat, referrals with a local chiropractor, or send a yoga article to your local online new source.
Extra credit: amp up your social media networking by tweeting, connecting, and sharing through Facebook THIS #teachasanachallenge. Don’t know any fellow yoga teachers? It’s time to network!!
