How The Yoga Site works
The Yoga Site is a yoga network that brings all the yoga schools and yoga students together in one place. Use The Yoga Site to build a school or find a class or event to attend. With great content like Yoga People and The People Behind the Retreats, there’s always something to find on The Yoga Site.
First step? Sign up or Login - You can find these links at the very top of every page.
What Next? Completely fill out your The Yoga Site profile! This will be a reflection of you: your name, yoga practice, a bit about yourself and what’s important to you. Having a complete profile is the best way to connect with people – whether you're a teacher or a student. It can build trust and make for better experiences. Be sure to include photos.
Go into your greeting in the navigation bar ('Hi Elaine C') and select 'Your Profile' from the list (It is first on the list).
You can complete your profile (if you haven't done so already) by entering the required details. You will be required to fill out fields like name, age and style (what's your yoga style? e.g. Ashtanga).
You can also add a photo or change your photo by clicking on the 'Browse file' field under the photo area. You can then chose your image from the pop-up window. Simply select the image you want, and press the 'Upload' button under the photo area. If it says 'Invalid Image', you will have to resize your image before it will allow you to upload it - don't give up, it will be worth it in the end.
Once your image is uploaded, you will have to crop your image - simply grab the coloured area around until you are happy with what you want kept in the picture and then press 'Crop'.
It's important to verify yourself too. You can do this by cutting & pasting your yoga school's url and your social network's url into the fields provided. The more you can tell people about yourself the more likely people are to book with you.
Be sure to click 'Save my Profile' after you have everything filled out for your profile.

In the Overview area further down the page you can fill in your event description. This can be anything of importance you think those attending your event might need to know. Here you can also drop on the url of your social networks to help verify yourself to others. The more information you can fill in on your event page the more likely people will rent off you, so don't hold back!
