Find the Best Yoga Teachers and Wellness Staff


Energy flows where focus goes

Quality staff breathe life into a space. The physical environment, aesthetic and location set the foundation, while people elicit the feeling. Yoga Trade supports retreats, businesses, and spaces of many kinds who are searching for wellness staff. Connect with the best yoga instructors and wellness professionals with a holistic approach to make an objective and informed decision. Advertise your opportunity and browse from our platform of 13,000+ members. Here’s our how-to for streamlining your search through Yoga Trade, alleviating the paradox of choice and finding your fit. Yoga principles apply.

Set firm and fluid goals

Know your goals and go from there. Understanding your desirable outcome and potential staff’s contribution will help you clearly articulate it and attract suitable matches. Does your ideal person hone a laundry list of qualifications and a professional demeanor or is worldly experience and playfulness your preference? Convey the tone of your space and see who supports and enhances it. Similarly, balance quantitative and qualitative measures; set your non-negotiables, like certification(s), language fluency, time commitment, etc., then evaluate soft skills and cultural fit, like communication, inclusivity, and empathy. Even the most experienced candidates undergo a learning curve as each wellness business and retreat operates differently. And, while skills may be taught, inherent values are ingrained and essential to aligning goals and fostering culture. We recommend balancing traditional hiring techniques and intuition to find your fit.

Craft a clear and compelling listing

Yoga Trade jobs and opportunities are categorized and optimized for user experience and receive the best responses when all sections are thoughtfully and thoroughly filled out. What makes your space unique? Candidly detail your offerings, and address common questions, benefits, and important information. Well-crafted postings attract candidates that resonate.

You can also proactively search for yoga instructors and wellness professionals on Yoga Trade. Use the ‘Find Your People’ tab to learn about our members. The advanced search function allows you to filter results by criteria, including location, availability and expertise. Further, you can build relationships and network with members by participating in and posting events.

Grow together 

Like any partnership, mutual compatibility is key. Our members are experts in their craft with their own criteria. By respectfully approaching interviews as conversations, you initiate a positive and equal dynamic to build on that encourages candidates to share their story and motivation as yoga teachers and wellness professionals. Remember, travel is simultaneously exciting and daunting, and both parties should feel comfortable (literally) moving forward. While interacting with candidates look for behaviors that enable the connection you want to cultivate with students and guests. Use prompts or request examples that reflect your core values. For example, if you emphasize inclusivity and safety, incorporate this in your discussion. Engaging and open dialogue, inviting questions, and welcoming feedback help organizers and candidates gauge mutual fit. On both ends, dedication to growth, opportunity and adaptability equals success.

Personally, as a yoga instructor, my interview experiences have varied. The most memorable was also the most casual. I was apprehensive about flying across the world to a physically and virtually remote destination and a simple FaceTime conversation with the organizer replaced my initial stress with stoke. While circumstances are diverse, your approach to finding the best yoga teachers and wellness professionals is your own and best practiced with mindfulness and compassion.
