Free classes are awesome! Who doesn’t love a free class??? They draw in tons of children, all the parents are happy, you (as the teacher) get to draw interest and attention to your classes…
There’s always a but.
The biggest challenge of free classes is that people often don’t feel committed to or vested in what you are offering.
Case and point: I do a free class (in different cities) almost every weekend, as part of my mini yogis Teacher Training program. Each studio accepts up to 20 reservations for children to attend. On top of that, we send reminders and ask people to please let us know if they won’t be coming so that someone else can have their child’s slot. And we have had as few as one child show up at times! Yes, one out of 20 double- or even triple-confirmed students.
So, when you are setting up your teaching schedule, perhaps save the free classes for charities and causes…and charge something (even if it’s just a couple of dollars) so that parents feel committed to showing up.
And that’s the mini yogis minute tip of the week. Check back every week to learn something new!
