Health Teacher Communities

Online communities are one of the best advantages we have to combat our health challenges. As I studied nurses and how they deal with the woes of shift work I was surprised to find that Vipkid teachers had a much more robust and understanding community from which to lean on.

 

So many nurses expressed how they wish they could just have others to talk to like Vipkid teachers do. This is our strength.

There is no one community that can meet the needs over everyone.  One community may not be your cup of tea, while another might be exactly what motivates you. 


Facebook groups are a great place to go for support and to ask questions. Teachers love to help one another out so whether you need accountability, or you just want to learn from other teachers who are also on the weight watchers diet, facebook groups can be a great resource.

Instagram from what I am seeing is a great place for engagement. I like what I am seeing as far as participation. 

None of the groups recommended by this site allow MLM sales or personal promotions I think this is important to maintain a fun group for all people.

Very well run group, this is one of the most active and largest fitness communities. Working from home can be overwhelming. If you are married, or have children sometimes it can be hard to find balance in your life. WE ARE HERE TO HELP EACH OTHER FIND IT! 

VipKid Yogis

This group is meant for VIPKid teachers that are also interested in yoga. All body types, levels, ages, and yoga styles are welcome. If you are curious and have questions ask away. If you have ideas please share. Share poses, equipment usage, progress, yoga flows, and anything yoga.

VipKid Steppers

This group is for VIPKID teachers who are participating in (or want to join) our regular Stepbets. Stepbets are a fun, friendly competition (with yourself) to meet step goals. You make a bet by paying your wager (usually $20 to $40) through the app. This money is held for you until you complete the bet. If you meet your goals for all 6 weeks, your money is returned to you. If you do not, you forfeit your cash and it is split among the other group members that did meet their goals. (This is all controlled by the app. FB group admins never see your money and are not involved with this process. Your agreement to participate is with WayBetter, the makers of Stepbet.)

VipKid Fit Teaches

Hey fellow teachers! You all are amazing and I only think fellow teachers can know what a toll teaching for VIPKid can take on our physical health. I thought I would create a group where we could motivate each other, cheer each other on, laugh at our short comings, and challenge each other!

Self promoting here bit. My goal is not to be the one voice of health and wellness, but to empower everyone else to be those voices.
