Presented by Andrea Gilats, RYT 200, | Published on: February 2, 2016

About this Workshop

High studio prices and misconceptions about yoga have kept many people from participating in classes. But you can serve overlooked audiences and earn a good living by teaching in community nonprofits. Learn how to “pitch” a yoga class to appropriate nonprofits. Discover how to price and promote classes, set your teaching fee and create engaging class descriptions. You’ll also learn how nonprofits fund their yoga classes and how to help your host organizations promote your classes
