2019 Scholarship And Paid Internship | Yogarise

2019 Scholarship And Paid Internship

as seen featured in Balance Magazine editorial

The reality is that training to be a teacher is, really, quite an outgoing. So we wanted to do our bit, put our money where our mouth is, and create an opportunity for someone who otherwise would not be able to afford a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training.

The first part to this is a FULL scholarship on our 2019 Yoga Teacher Training (including flights, which know isn’t usually covered in other YTT Scholarships). This place is designed for someone who would love to develop their skills, but aren’t able to fund their teaching.

The second bit is the chance to learn the business side of things, whilst getting paid! We want our candidate to work with us; learning skills that will either apply to them as a new yoga teacher –  negotiating the hustle – or acting as transferable tools for whatever they choose to do next.

The PAID INTERNSHIP at Yogarise (Streatham & Peckham)

The internship part of this would start in August, acting as a floating helper for our key departments, dealing with front of house operations, marketing, managing our social media, new business, events and studio management. You’ll acquire key basic skills to help you in a career as a yoga teacher, work in a yoga studio, or as a junior marketer. The exact schedule will be flexible but there’ll be one contact who will act as line manager and mentor. This will be paid full-time internship, working with us for a minimum of 6 months (at which point we check in to see if you’d like to stay on) before, during and after the Teacher Training.

The idea is that you’ll want to stay with us long after your training finishes!

August would be the intro month pre-Teacher Training, where you can get to know the team and learn how things run here.
