Yoga Instructor

posted by Yoga Athletex

Are you a yoga instructor looking for a unique organization and team to work with? Do you enjoy serving in the spotlight? Are you passionate about movement and teaching? Do you love cleaning equipment after a sweaty class? If you answered yes to all of these (except the cleaning one—we hate that), we’d like to talk to you. We’re looking for a confident, professional and experienced instructor to join our Coaching Team. We’re growing like crazy, and we’re looking for someone who can jump into a system quickly while contributing their own magic touch. We have a number of exceptional coaches who reach hundreds of people each year with the message of ACCOMPLISHMENT. Help us continue spreading that message. Join our crusade to change lives forever!

• Broad knowledge of anatomy, functional movement and breathwork. If you just like to look at yourself in the large mirrors at the gym, please don’t apply.
• Experience in teaching small groups. This means less than 10 people in a class.
• Ability to think on your toes. Understand that quickly means QUICKLY— you won’t have time to google it!
• Eat pressure and high-intensity situations for breakfast.
• Ability to work within a team atmosphere. At no point will you be allowed to be a Lone Ranger.
• Someone with former stand up comedy experience. (We like to have a good laugh and stay entertained.)

• Work directly with youth and adults to help them achieve their fitness goals.
• Encourage membership sales of every person that walks through the door.
• Be able to do necessary administrative tasks. Check clients into your class.
Bring the (non-explicit) heat with your playlists. We all have to do ’em; make sure you can do them accurately.
• Of course, actually teach yoga. You may have open/close the studio, wipe down equipment, check someone out for a water or sweat towel, or collect payment for private lessons. Can you do these things with excellence? If this describes you, we want your résumé!
