Quite a few people have asked if I intend to schedule any workshops for Mobile Yoga, and the answer is yes, and no. Leading up to the launching of the program I had done 4 workshops as pilot programs but have not, up to this point, scheduled any others.
Three of the “pilots” that I had conducted were with skaters who had very little yoga experience and one was done with a group that had more yoga experience than skating. Because each group had either a skating or yoga background it was easy to tailor the workshop toward the majority of the group When a majority of the attendees have a background in skating then the workshop needs to be more yoga oriented, and vise verse if there are more with a yoga background. Each workshop would than have to have a certain focus, either skating or yoga, and then spend time enough time integrating the separate concepts of each discipline. This is where it gets tricky when trying to appeal to both skaters and yoga practitioners a like as the groups are often mutually exclusive!
If anyone has any ideas of how to best go about marketing Mobile Yoga Workshops on more of a “mass appeal” level please let me know. Meanwhile, I will focus on one group at a time- starting with the skaters!
The Inline Certification Program (ICP) and ICP Singapore will be hosting a Mobile Yoga Workout workshop in Singapore on July 10th, 2011 from 9am-12pm.. This will be the second Mobile Yoga Workout workshop I have done in Singapore. Singaporeans love really love skating and I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with instructors and skaters in this country again.
To sign up for the workshop go to the ICP Singapore website http://www.icpsingapore.org/get-certified/program-dates/ and contact Vivian Lim at firstname.lastname@example.org for information regarding lodging and program location information. Below is the proposed workshop agenda
