Not sure whether to put this under “networking” or “researching jobs”. Through the Yoga Alliance group on Linked In, I came across a post by a woman who has some similar ideas to me and who is teaching through Parks & Rec in north San Diego county. I wrote her a private message to ask her how she got involved in teaching in this environment. She said she had originally proposed classes to them in order to get started. I’m going to see if there is a Parks & Rec facility (or several) where it would be suitable for me to do this.
She also teaches at a Martial Arts studio, which she pitched to the owner by researching benefits of yoga for martial arts. This is a kind of cool idea as well. I’ve heard of people pitching classes to corporations and have talked to some yoga teachers about how they did this as well. Once I get the business license/ tax sorted, I’m interested in pursuing this angle more – pitching my own classes to places that do not already have programs.
