Adding a Location to Your Event
A location is required for all events, even if it's something that happens online.
To add a location to your event:
1) Use the pull down menu on your location tab. The locations that appear are venue profiles you manage or have associated with your teacher profile (if you have one). Simply select the venue - done!
If the location where your event is taking place is not on this list, please choose ' Add new venue'.
2) Adding a New Venue
After clicking the orange button 'Add Location', first you'll need to enter the name, city and country of the location and then click 'next'. If the venue for your event is already listed on YogaTrail, it will appears on the next step and you'll just need to click on it to select it. Like so:
When you select a venue from the list, it will be added as your event venue. If you've added a venue by mistake, simply click the 'x' next to the venue name. You'll then be able to select a different venue:
If your venue does not appear on the list, it means it's not on YogaTrail yet. Here's how to add it: click the blue button 'No, my venue's not there', and on the next screen add the street address of the venue. Then click next.
On the last screen you need to indicate what kind of venue your event takes place at:
- Please choose Studio, or Retreat Center only if the venue is open year round and has a regular yoga schedule. Some resorts can qualify as "retreat centers".
- Please choose "Other" for places where yoga is not a regular thing. Some examples: hotels, beaches, parks, town halls, churches.
Next, you'll need to indicate if you own or manage the venue you're adding. It might seem like common sense, but you shouldn't click 'yes' if you're not the owner or manager of a place — you would be impersonating somebody else's businesses, which is an offence.
To add a venue that you don't own or manage, you'll need to supply their email address. We will use their email only to invite them to claim their page and add information to it (we don't share information with anyone, or use it in any other way). If you don't have the email, or prefer not to add it, please create your venue as 'other' — this requires no email address.
After you've entered the above information, together with the venue address, simply click 'create'. This will add the venue to your event.
If you are the owner or manager of the venue you've just added, you will now also be able to access this new profile from your YogaTrail account. To navigate between your profiles, please the drop-down menu at the top right (small triangle next to the button that says 'My Yoga’).
Once your venue is added, just click next at the bottom on the page, and you can then finish filling your event information.
