omTown Teachers Y@P
Yoga @ the Parks is entering our 6th summer of all-levels community yoga. Help others stretch, balance and breath in the open air on mother earth's welcoming, energizing ground. This program is known to attract many newcomers to yoga and in that sense is a sacred opportunity to open the door for them to the riches of yoga. It also gets a good share of practiced yogis & yoginis so in that sense is a beautiful merging of styles, approaches and experiences on common ground, quite literally.
This program has 3 goals:
1) creating access to yoga, reducing barriers
2) highlighting you and the places at which you teach
3) offering a way to be closely in nature
Each class often has 1 Greeter and 1 Teacher per park. (Urban Ecology Center staff serves as the Greeter at Washington Park). Teachers and Greeters will receive an email introducing them and sharing some more details. Sometimes Teachers must serve as Teacher/Greeter. See the Yoga @ the Parks Guidelines for more information.
There is an exchange. This is a donation-based program and we ask that our Greeters and Teachers make a point to ask for donations and represent at a very basic level omTown Yogis' mission (found here). Proceeds are split: 40% teacher / 10% greeter (or 50% if the teacher is the greeter as well). There is no cap.
We will be respectfully peppering social media so folks know about this program and your involvement in it. We'll also use our newsletter which has a really great breadth of readership.
THIS IS KEY: Please reach out through your social networks to promote this program throughout the summer months! While omTown has a good strong network, we've found that it is YOU the TEACHER who has the greatest power to draw students, friends, family to come to the parks and enjoy yoga out of the studio, gym or home. Please like, share, post and evangelize! This is a great program that serves as an umbrella for several studios, styles and locations. One of a kind in MKE -- together let's sing its and your praises. Sign up to teach 1 class (*exception: Brown Deer Village Park, see comment below). Check back in a week, if there are still several openings, feel free to sign up for 1 or 2 more. Please share this teaching opportunity with other yoga teachers!
Required reading for all teachers & greeters:

GREETERS PER PARK WILL BE LISTED HERE WHEN CONFIRMED: Check back later!
*- Brown Deer Village Park is our newest addition to the parks lineup. We need help building attendance to help realize our intention of spreading the reach of yoga. If you would like to help us build a student base by teaching multiple classes, please feel free to sign up for several. Happy to work with you!
