Yoga In Schools Apprenticeship Program.Bookmark This
4040 Washington Blvd
Los Angeles, CA
DescriptionStart the New Year off right by teaching youth to stretch beyond limitations one yoga pose at a time. Did you know that yoga encourages children to focus, absorb new information and learn new skills at a faster rate? Join the Yoga In Schools Program and empower at-risk youth by teaching them life-enhancing skills through the practice of yoga. The Yoga In Schools Program is part of a nonprofit organization in Los Angeles that is seeking children’s yoga instructors to participate in our Apprenticeship Program. This is a unique opportunity to provide at-risk students with an alternative physical education program using our structured and developmentally appropriate Hatha based yoga curriculum. Our Apprenticeship Program includes two weeks of unpaid training at schools in Compton and South Los Angeles. Participation in this program has the potential to lead to a part-time position for the 2014 – 2015 school year. Interviews will be held in early January.
We are an equal opportunity employer. People of color are strongly encouraged to apply. To learn more about us, visit our website (http://www.satnaam.org/what-we-do/), Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/satnaamyogainschools) and LinkedIn page (www.linkedin.com/company/sat-naam).
