Hosting Community Events

Posted by on May 31, 2012 in Events | Comments Off on Hosting Community Events

I’ve never heard anyone say, “I have too many friends,” or “I have too many students”.

One way to have more friends and more students is to host a community event. I remember the first time I was invited to a yoga related pot luck. I felt so honored, even though everyone at the workshop was invited. I couldn’t believe I was breaking bread with Laurie Blackeney. I know it may sound silly to some, but many students are intimidated by senior teachers.

More importantly though, I felt welcomed by the hostess, and a part of the yoga community she was fostering. I felt a personal connection to her, and I still attend her classes, in part, because of this connection.

Do you want to have more students and more friends? A community event is a way to for students of yoga to get to know each other. It doesn’t have to be a pot luck either. Maybe someone wants to start a bookclub, dinner club, or have a yogathon to benefit a studio or local non-profit.

Speaking of community events, there is one in Austin this weekend!
