Gather a team of 3-5 people to help with planning the event details, marketing, teaching and spreading the word. Success is always best enjoyed when a great team surrounds you!
Brainstorm with your team about what kind of event would work best for your community. Consider offering a special workshop, an extra class on a holiday, or host an open house and dedicate a full day of classes to Kiss My Asana! Add some special elements to your event such as live music, door prizes or refreshments following the class. Find a day and time when many of your community members can attend. If possible, start promoting six weeks ahead of your event.
Hang up flyers at your studio. Ask businesses in your neighborhood if they would be willing to display a flyer too! On the flyer be sure to include all the pertinent details including a suggested donation amount. Need help with creating a flyer?
