The start of 2018 has been Yoga Quota’s biggest and best yet! In every area we growing, expanding and exceeding our goals. I thought it would be lovely to share with you all some of what’s been going on! Here’s an update on the first quarter (January - March) of 2018.
Charity Classes Done
In the first three months of 2018, we’ve taught an amazing 151 charity classes, with 800 charity client visits to our bespoke classes around the country and in our Oxford studio. This is our best start to any calendar year, and it means we’re on track to reach our goal of over 500 charity classes in 2018.
New Charity Partners
We’ve welcomed an amazing group of new charity partners on board, some already have classes up and running, and we’re working hard to match teachers with classes to deliver yoga to their beneficiaries.
So wonderfully, Yoga Quota is now just shy of 100 badgeholders! Badgeholders are our incredible community of teachers nationwide who have committed to teaching yoga to vulnerable people in their areas. Recap of our most recent new Badgeholders. We are always looking for new teachers to join our expanding Badgeholder family! Fill out our online form to join today (link to becoming a teacher form).
The studio has never been busier, and we love seeing so many fantastic yogis practicing everyday! So far in 2018 we’ve welcomed Marisa, Ale, Becky, Chloe, Georgie and James to our teaching team, and they’re fantastic additions.
Our workshop program has grown, and we’re now offering a wide variety of workshops from studio teachers, and bringing some amazing guest teachers to YQ.
We are running our twice-yearly Open Day on Friday 27 April, the whole day is free, and you can sign into one class on us! We’ve arranged an amazing selection of prizes, and can’t wait to show off our amazing studio and community. Book now!
Our teaching training program continues to be a vibrant and much-loved offering. We currently have 22 trainee teachers enrolled in our 200 hour program, with another group of eager yogis set to start in the summer! If you’re curious about teacher training, pop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or check out Liz & Chiara’s blog posts.
You asked and we listened! Super duper excitingly YQ is now hosting bespoke retreats! Our first retreat in August is already selling quickly, and we’ve got a second retreat planned for December 2018.
In head office news, in March we welcome Elle Narbrook as our Marketing Assistant! Elle is a yoga teacher, Instagram wiz, and stellar photographer. She took all the amazing new photos you’ve been seeing around!
