The Yoga Society was built in from scratch for this academic year. Although society existed on the page, there was no committee to start the society. Getting all the committee members together and starting the society as fresh with fresh ideas. Our society invested in yoga resources such as mats, belts, and blocks from our collaborative partner, Myga. These resources are an investment for the current members as well as the future society members. Our committee members held two stalls, one at City and one at City south campus, to create awareness of our society and get students involved in yoga. Seeing the success of the classes in City center campus, the City South students had approached the Student Union in lieu of holding classes on their campus too. And we've had quite a bit of success from the city south campus too in terms of student participation.
Our current society has a total of 63 members, which I believe is the highest number of student participation in this society. As promised by us, we have held regular monthly socials and one retreat to Liverpool. We have been an interactive and engaging society towards all the members. For our ease and the following committee members, we introduced a digital attendance system that keeps track of all the new members and paid members. We have suggested considering the equal number of classes for September intake students and January intake students, by having classes all year round, which as of now is not the case.
Taking the current lockdown situation in mind, we are planning to hold online classes for our members so that their membership doesn't go in vain.
From nothing last year, this society has made a big impact on the people that started brand new in September. They have constantly tried to get people involved in bigger events and helped change people's lifestyle for better.
