Yoga Trade/Exchange

  • Work Exchange
  • Albania

Exciting opportunities to join our wonderful team at our Free Flow Yoga studio in Tirana, Albania. This position is to be a part of our energetic teacher staff with three other teachers consisting of the Owner/Director and two other wonderful teachers. Free Flow Yoga is a diverse community that practices Baptiste’s philosophy while having ongoing teacher development through a structured learning program, intensive living yoga immersion and an inspiring community framework.

At Free Flow Yoga we stand for leadership, community, service, possibility, and transformation on and off the mat. Students are encouraged and challenged to explore the possibilities within their physical bodies.

The Work Exchange Program at Free Flow Yoga is a 1-3 month service-based learning program that integrates all aspects of yoga (asana, breathing, meditation, devotion, surrender, creativity, silence, and more) and the specific Baptiste methodology. The program is a mixture of study, service, practice, holding space and having fun. It is an intensive immersion in simple and conscious living. As a teacher at Free Flow, you are integral in creating a space for people in Albania and around the world to come and dive deeper than just a physical practice.

As a yoga teacher here, it would be nice if you are Baptiste trained or trained by a Baptiste affiliate studio trained in minimum 200 hours. If not, we are also opening up the opportunity for teachers who are 200 hr trained even if you are not Baptiste to come and be integrated into the Baptiste community and mindset. You should have an amiable, loving, sociable nature, as well as great people skills. He/She should be able to move and mix with everyone within the community. He/She should be sympathetic and tolerant and able to adjust him or herself to the habits and ways of others. He/She should have an all-embracing and all-inclusive heart. He/She should always have a cool and balanced mind as well as a strong eagerness to selflessly serve the community.

I am currently a Peace Corps Volunteer serving in Albania. I only have 6 months left of my service and am going to India to get my 200hr yoga teacher training complete. I have a yoga club in my community and love my students so much. I am looking for a good opportunity for May 2019! I love yoga and the community that it brings.
