As a start, we'd like to begin running monthly social events for locals and visitors to YEG. Something unique that doesn't necessarily include a formal practice as part of the fun. We're seeking YEG community members who share an interest in fostering a yoga community in Edmonton that is alive, collaborative, cooperative, evolving, growing, and ever-lasting (though we all know nothing lasts forever). As you may have sensed, at this time this is very much a work in progress. We feel there may be a need for more (ideas, initiatives, resources, etc.), but at this time are taking a baby steps approach.
Might this be of interest to you? If so, please take a deep breath, read on, and share with us a bit more info about yourself. Thanks so much for your interest!
Core Team: On one hand, we'd love to add a few more "core" collaborators to our team. Beautiful people who want to help with planning, spreading the word (marketing), visioning, and generally helping to keep the light shining in the right direction from behind the scenes. This would be an ongoing commitment, with the benefit of being able to care for this baby from birth.
Time Commitment: 8-10 hours per month.
Idea Generators: We are looking for idea generators who have a passion for community-building, event planning, fostering relationships, and networking. While our intention is to start off slow and steady, we're hoping it won't be long before a groundswell of activity requires a few more idea makers, inspiring minds, and motivators.
Time Commitment: At this time we're thinking 4-6 hours per month, but, in all honesty, at this point this is uncertain.
Event Volunteers: In addition, we're seeking activity/event assistants on an "as needed" basis. Kind souls who are willing to help out leading up to, during, and following planned gatherings, and to serve with an attitude of gratitude and joy. As Gandhi once wisely shared: "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others."
Time Commitment: Flexible
