Tip #1: Utilize Videos On Instagram
Videos on social media generate 1,200% more shares than text and images combined. With the addition of Stories, IGTV, Live, and Reels, Instagram is incorporating more video content onto it’s platform. You can create videos demonstrating yoga poses, discuss the benefits of yoga, or give a behind the scenes look at how you prepare for a class at your studio.
Tip #2: Go Live On Facebook
Facebook Live allows you to directly interact with your followers in real time and create a unique experience for them to engage in. By going Live, you have the chance to teach virtual yoga classes or stream an in-person event. You can also try hosting a yoga Q&A session.
Tip #3: Participate In Local Events
Attending events gives you the chance to meet new students and other yoga instructors. You may get to show others what teaching styles you specialize in, demonstrate different poses, or discuss the benefits of attending your yoga class. See if your community is hosting any wellness days or if there are yoga retreats near you looking for instructors.
Tip #4: Build An Email Campaign
