How can I turn yoga into an extracurricular?



I've been practicing yoga for 5 years now. I dedicate around 5-7 hours per week on it. Despite my commitment and the time I put into it, I understand that yoga is still regarded as a hobby.

I was trying to think of ways to turn yoga into an extracurricular by trying to make it more impactful (like for example teaching it to kids, but I need a certificate to be a yoga instructor) but I can't come up with anything. Do you have any ideas of how I can turn yoga into an activity that is beyond me, shifting from being a hobby to being an extracurricular worth including in college applications?

Thank you for your time! I really appreciate it :)

So go to the chancing profile tab and select the hobby catergory this are some basic very good ideas.

I’d like to highlight the blogging/podcast part of it. Also depending on your year at school and how the pandemic progresses a yoga club at school is fairly unique and can be interesting.

Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification.

Hi @DebaterMAX! I am a rising senior, so I suppose that for this year, a Yoga Club is out of the question... When you suggest blogging, do you mean teaching and recording and online yoga class?
So by blogging it can be as a “tutorial”, a discussion on what yoga helps with and how yoga benefits you, it can be in news article format and talk about how yoga has evolved. Essentially a yoga blog can cover anything related to yoga. I have a blog on google sites but I’d say Wordpress and wix are better for your style and they are both free. Hope this helps.

Maybe you can start a yoga club at your school. It would demonstrate leadership and initiative. Also, you could make videos and start a YouTube channel or have an online presence else where. Just show that you're trying to make an impact and not just doing it recreationally.

Hi @Reaganbakin. Yes! That's exactly what I'm striving to do (ie. making an impact rather than just being recreational). Because I'm a rising senior and we won't be going to school anytime soon, Yoga Club won't be an option. Thank you for the YouTube channel option!
