Karma Yoga Work Exchange Program
ABHYAASA'S KARMA YOGI PROGRAM
Are you passionate about yoga and interested in becoming an integral part of the Abhyaasa Yoga community? Abhyaasa Yoga is seeking yogis and yoginis who would like to be more involved, but have a limited budget, to help us in the studio in exchange for yoga classes. Karma Yogis are an integral part of Abhyaasa’s day-to-day operations, helping maintain the cleanliness, uplifting energy, and loving atmosphere that make Abhyaasa so welcoming.
HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
This is not a paid position, but rather an exchange of work for study. Karma Yogis commit to 3 hours per week of work (for a minimum of 12 hours per month) in exchange for unlimited yoga.
Shifts often revolve around scheduled classes in which the Karma Yogi participates as a student.
WHO SHOULD APPLY?
We are looking for dedicated students of yoga who can commit to a regular schedule.
To be eligible for the Karma Yogi program you must…
Give: 1 hour to help with individual classes. This would be divided into 3 shifts each week. Basic responsibilities would be to:
Single Weekly Class Helper
Although we prefer Karma Yogis to be more involved in our community, we will consider a single class per week commitment for those with limited availability. Single class helpers will be expected to make a firm commitment to the same class each week, agreeing to the 3-month minimum and will receive that one class for free each week.
Weekly Deep Cleaning (This position is currently filled)
Give: 3 hours of cleaning per week for unlimited yoga classes. This would be two shifts (approximately 1.5 hours each) per week, which involve deep cleaning the entire studio.
Receive: Unlimited regular* yoga classes
We have additional opportunities to help spread the word about Abhyaasa to the community, launder blankets, artistically maintain sidewalk announcement board, etc. Such activities can be combined with 1 or 2 Class Helper or Deep Cleaning shifts to earn unlimited yoga.
* Unlimited pass excludes aerial, belly dance, special paid series and workshops.
