"The best teaching job I have."
-Kimma, Newark Yoga Movement teacher since 2012
Newark Yoga Movement welcomes all Yoga teachers, even those with limited kids experience. We'll work with you, give you the opportunity to participate in our Kids Foundation Training and help you find your “groove” in teaching age appropriate children for your ability. Next training being held Feb. 3-6 2017. All Yoga teachers must be at least 200-hour certified and have your own liability insurance.
Want to teach with us? Sign up is easy. Click here and fill out our form. That's it. Easier than some yoga poses right? Only able to commit to one time a week for just an hour or two? No problem. Just note your available days and times on the form. At Newark Yoga Movement, we aim to work with your schedule and have always been mindful of your time. We're efficient with you and effective with the children.
What to expect
We never throw anyone “into the unknown." That means you won't be put into a school with a class of students on day one. No way. Not good for you and not good for us. We do things at the highest level and with the fullest support at Newark Yoga Movement. All teachers begin by assisting classes (they can be tailored to your desired age group or expose you to new groups). After you have assisted, you'll get to co-teach classes with one of our experienced teachers. Finally, when you think you are ready and we think you are ready, you teach a class with our assistance. And after all this, now you are ready to teach in a school on your own. Teaching children can be challenging (in a good way) and we are with you every step of the way. Additionally, once you begin teaching with us, you will receive a comprehensive set of FAQ's that gives you all the additional confidence and information to be a huge success with Newark children and yourself.
Newark Yoga Movement believes in and stands by our commitment to Paid Seva. Seva is charity/service. We have paid ALL TEACHERS for their seva since our first class in 2010. We recognize that you work hard and from you heart with all our children and we want you to be reimbursed for your generosity and expenses. All teachers are paid $30 for an hour of teaching. Time slots are configured to work with your schedule so that yoga segments are often taught back to back. In 2014/15 fiscal year (ending June 30th), Newark Yoga Movement paid its teachers over $45K.
