Work-Yoga Exchange Program

Roots & River is pleased to announce our Work-Yoga Exchange Program for students who want to be more involved with our wonderful community and earn yoga classes through needed services at the studio. We are seeking friendly people who are responsible, timely and task-oriented.  These positions can be perfect opportunities for those who wants to practice yoga regularly but may not have the financial resources to afford weekly classes. 

We ask applicants to be sure they are able to commit to a weekly shift for at least 3 months.  This is not a volunteer position. Work-yoga staff must communicate positively with incoming students, demonstrate reliability, honesty and respect for people coming from diverse life experiences. 

If interested, please fill in this form and tell us why you would like to participate in the work-yoga exchange.

*Please note that we may not be able to offer work-yoga positions to all who apply.
