Yoga Playgrounds is seeking yoga teachers who are interested in teaching yoga to kids on site at elementary schools throughout Portland.
Yoga Playgrounds is Portland’s premier school based yoga enrichment program for kids founded in 2010. We teach yoga classes to hundreds of kids on site at nearly 50 schools each week in Portland and the surrounding areas. Classes are held Monday-Friday between 9:00-4:00 at preschools, daycares and elementary schools. Classes are generally scheduled in 4 seasons (fall, winter, spring, summer), and meet once a week for 45 minutes in 8-12 week sessions. Each teacher is responsible for creating their own curriculum and teaching a fun, educational yoga class each week for the duration of the session.
We are seeking teachers who are interested in teaching yoga to kids in grades K-5 as an after school enrichment activity in several Portland area schools. Class times are generally 2:15 or 3:00, Monday-Friday. We offer flexible scheduling (teach 1-5 days a week, your choice) and competitive pay that starts at $30/class and increases based on experience. Interviews will be held the first week in December and classes begin the first week in January.
*Completion of a 200hr teacher training or a specialized kids yoga training. You’ll create your own class plans, so a thorough knowledge of yoga is essential. For new teachers, ongoing support with class planning is offered.
*Experience working with kids in a formal group setting. Babysitting and nannying does not count.
*A car - you’ll need to transport your yoga mats to each class (we will provide them)
