Everyone is building their own community within Facebook and Twitter, by adding friends and following the leaders in who they aspire to. When it comes time to further your knowledge as a yoga teacher embarking on a yoga training is the next step. The question is, when and where? It’s a trend for teachers to initiate the need for continuing education via Facebook. From the groups that can be created within Facebook you can invite the whole world. You can see updates on who is part of the teaching faculty, who is attending, even the course outline. it becomes a social gathering adding to a teachers “tool belt”, (how much training and expertise one has).
If your single and you love yoga, what not connect with someone who also practices yoga? Yoga social networking sites like Yoga Romance continue to be incredible tools to connect people into personal relationships.
These are great examples of how social media in my industry is used to create and grow new and existing communities.
