RECRUITMENT

Join the Affordable Yoga Teaching Team!

 

Our community thrives because of our awesome teachers, and we're happy to consider new applications to join that community.

We add new teachers to our substitute list on a rolling basis, adding them as permanent teachers as slots become available.

Here's a sneak peek at what we're all about:

About the role:

Teachers who work with us are responsible for carrying forth our vision of making yoga affordable to all: financially, emotionally, and physically. As a representative of our brand, you will be responsible for making all students feel welcome, and providing a quality class experience.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Checking in students with the MindBody system (via a mobile app available for iPhone or Android)
  • Making sure all registered students have purchased adequate class credit (also done via the mobile app)
  • Managing class space -- encouraging students to share the space and make room for new arrivals
  • Answering students' questions or directing them to the HQ team if necessary
  • Sending invoices each month to compensate your teaching time

Please note that we do not currently have any full-time or part-time roles: all auto-entrepreneurs who join our team will start out with the opportunity to teach substitute classes shared by other teachers, and later we may offer weekly teaching slots based on student feedback, class attendance, etc.

Requirements to apply:

  • Legal status to work in France (a SIRET and a valid visa which allows working)
  • English proficiency (both for providing postural cues during class, and for checking in students and answering questions)
  • Teaching insurance (or plans to purchase a teaching insurance plan)

Sound like your type of opportunity? Alright, let's get your details!

  APPLY TO TEACH IN LYON

The application process:

  1. Submit your application (click the link above)
  2. Trial class: We will review and contact you (usually via email) with trial teaching opportunities to see your teaching in action. This class remains a part of the interview process, and is therefore unpaid. If you express interest in a teaching opportunity and it is still available, we will confirm and send you details to prepare for the class.
  3. Initial interview: We will usually schedule this as soon as your trial teaching class is scheduled. Sometimes we'll do it right before that class, to go over the details we sent, and to prepare you for what we're looking for during this trial.
  4. Review & deliberation: After the class, we'll send students an email to ask for their feedback, and combined with our own evaluation, we will then decide whether to offer a contract (prestateur de service). In all cases, we will send you a summary of the feedback on your teaching.
  5. Offer & onboarding: If we decide it's a good fit, we'll follow up and let you know that we're ready to have you join the team! That's when you'll review and sign the freelance teaching contract and receive access to our full training materials, teacher network, substitute teaching opportunities, etc.

Teaching slots may not be available right away, but once you're on the team, we'll show you how to stay informed on substitute and permanent teaching opportunities.

Compensation

We pay teachers based on their experience and teaching abilities. You'll have an opportunity to view the rates after submitting your application.

"I had no idea what I was in for when I Googled 'English speaking yoga classes in Paris'. Having just moved to the city of Light, I didn't know a soul and had an infant's grasp on la langue Française. It was truly a life-changing moment when I arrived for that first Vinyasa practice under the wooden beams of the Salles de St Roch.

 

From that first summer of practicing in the open air of Parc Tuilleries, to the following autumn when I was invited to join the teaching team, the truest and most nourishing friendships arose from the classes we attended across the city. Since then, I've been consistently touched and inspired by the astonishing community that this group provides.

 

Now, I am more proud than ever to belong to a tribe of students and teachers from every walk of life and every corner of the globe. Affordable Yoga & Fitness is an example of what we could use more of on our planet - Friendly, accessible, supportive wellness offerings for a generation of humans that will be the change they hope to see in the world."
