When we teach our workshops in a location other than a studio where participants are required to sign a waiver or release in order to attend class, we need to be prepared with our own "release" of liability. Since liability laws and waivers of responsibility vary by state, you will want to run this past your attorney to insure it is adequate, but here is a sample form you could use that I've adapted when I teach in more public places.

This handout makes a simple summary of the important steps and expectations to be discussed with a yoga instructor new to The EssentialYoga Program workshop. I have sent a copy of it with a personalized cover note to a prospective instructor along with a copy of the Tear Pad to give them an idea of the Program, that I then follow up with by phone or an in-person meeting when possible. The second page of the handout breakdown the sequence of events in the workshop for each instructor. It then describes when each of the oils are introduced depending on whether [...]
It is critical to plan ahead, budget for, and order the doTERRA essential oils you need for your next month's workshop. To help you prepare, here is a chart that indicates which oils you'll need, and the wholesale price of each oil you can order on your Loyalty Reward Program order the month prior to your workshop so you'll have time to prepare the bottles and learn about the oils to be used.

One of the most important steps at the start of your workshop is to create excitement and interest in each instructor. Do not skip this step! Your enthusiasm in describing one another will set the tone for the audience, and why they should really listen to you. We call this “edifying” your co-instructor. Make sure you do this for your host instructor – particularly if they are a yoga teacher, as they may “assume” everyone knows their background…which they don’t, and will likely find fascinating!

If I am not doing a drawing at my workshops, I ALWAYS capture attendee names and contact information. Often a studio has this information on file for regular clients, but if I am trying to follow up about doTERRA with attendees - I need their info too - AND in a timely manner. This is a simple sheet you can pass around or have at the front door as they enter and get their class supplies. Don't miss this important step! Sign In Sheet - Name Phone Email Who
I've provided a few different templates you can download and photocopy/trim to hand out to each workshop attendee. This helps you find out their future interests in oils, hosting events, becoming an oil educator, and/or their primary health concerns. Take a look and find one that suits your needs, or make your own. Enjoy! Enter to Win Slip 1 Enter to Win Slip 2
