Why To Use Instagram Reels As A Yoga Instructor?
Simple answer = Instagram is really pushing them right now. Since they are the new, cool thing that Instagram has created, they are showing them to more people. So if you’re looking to get more exposure on Instagram and reach new/more people, Reels are the way to go!
Plus they really help you get clear on your message. In order to share a message with something in 15 seconds, you’ve got to be clear. This works wonders for helping you boil down a message! It’s going to help you write more effective social media posts and emails and website copy.
And...you get to have so much fun with them! “Fun” for YOU. Maybe that’s sharing mindful moments. Maybe it’s you dancing. Maybe it’s all graphics. Maybe it’s sharing your practice. There’s so many ways to do reels but the key is to have fun with them!
