The pumpkins are lit and you can hear screams from haunted houses in any neighborhood. Halloween is upon us and yoga studios across the country are getting involved in the spooky activities.
Offering events or getting involved in the festivities during a holiday are sure-fire ways to meet potential clients and have them experience your studio for possibly the first time. Check out a few examples of what yoga studios are doing to get involved in the Halloween spirit. There may not be time to plan a Halloween event for your studio this year, but thankfully Halloween happens every year.
Offer Specialty Halloween Classes
Karmony Yoga in Fort Worth, Texas, hosts a Halloween Glowga event. The studio is completely darkened and they encourage participants to wear white or neon to stand out. The studio provides glow sticks and glow paint to help the students get a bit more into the theme as well. The class is set to all Halloween-themed music.
Participate in a Local Festival
A great way to incorporate Halloween, yoga and community is to get involved in a local Halloween festival in your studio’s neighborhood. Pure Yoga and Wellness Studio in South Deerfield, Massachusetts, participates in Boo Fest, their community’s local Halloween festival. The event offers live music, activities for kids, yoga and more.
Donate to a Cause
Halloween might not be the most common time to raise money or awareness for a charity, but that doesn’t stop Go Yoga Manila in the Philippines, from doing just that. The Friday before Halloween they host an annual donation-based class for World Vision Philippines. Students are encouraged to come dressed in superhero gear to flow for a cause.
Partner with Neighborhood Businesses
Being a one-stop shop for all Halloween festivities can be a plus for your business. Offering yoga, a place to trick-or-treat and other activities can ensure fun for the entire family. Habitat Yoga in Nashville, Tennessee, hosts Little Beats: Family Halloween Yoga Party at their studio on the weekend of Halloween. They partner with local businesses in their community, like a bakery which comes in and sells treats during the event, as a way to bring in more participants for the fun.
