Teaching Assistants & Business Assistants

If you have recently completed Yoga Teacher Training or are RYT 200, but do not yet have teaching experience and would like to gain hands on experience providing non-verbal assists.  Yoga Hikes DC is always looking for dynamic individuals to join the team.  Yoga Hikes DC is currently recruiting assistants who have great energy, a passion for the outdoors, and are looking to gain experience or learn more about running a yoga business.  Athletes, individuals with prior team sport experience, and/or outdoor activity training are highly desirable.  Candidates for assisting have signed up and participated in at least one Yoga Hike as a student, completed yoga teacher training, are registered with Yoga Alliance, and carry their own instructor insurance.

Working as an assistant is an extremely important part of developing as a yoga instructor. Yoga Hikes offers a unique outdoor multi-sport assisting opportunity.  Assistant support is based on an energy exchange model.  Assistants are needed to:

  • Greet, help with check in (by phone app), and answer general questions
  • Provide non-verbal hands on assists during YogaStops
  • Keep up the energy and hiking pace for back of the group
  • Help promote Yoga Hikes via social media and post as guest bloggers
  • Take photos and video during hikes

Assistants may receive:

  • Free yoga hikes (for self or a guest)
  • Photo and bio recognition on the website
  • Hands on experience to build resume
  • Opportunity to build personal brand
  • Reference for future employers

Assistants will gain competency and experience with non-verbal hands on assists, opportunities for stand-in instruction at YogaStops, consideration for future instructor openings, and a written reference.  If interested, please send yoga resume to danielle@yogahikesdc.com

Yoga Hike Instructors

Fun in RCP

[Fully staffed at this time!] Yoga Hikes seeks  instructors to both join the sub list and pick up weekday and weekend Yoga Hikes.  Candidates must be RYT 200 certified, registered with Yoga Alliance, and insured.  Highly desirable candidates will have experience teaching yoga (various forms are welcome), a  love of the outdoors, highly positive energy, the ability to project their voice outdoors, and hiking experience.  Former coaching experience of any sport would also be beneficial, but is not mandatory.  It is highly recommended that interested candidates attend a hike to see if the format and style is a good fit for them.   Instructors are hired as contractors, not employees. Pay is competitive.  If interested, please send your yoga resume with references to danielle@yogahikesdc.com
