Teach in Our Community Classes!

Gain valuable experience, develop your style and build a student following as a yoga professional. All graduates of YGSF200 YTT, students currently enrolled in YGSF500 YTT and students undergoing a mentorship are eligible to teach these classes.

Community classes are free for current YGSF members and $5 for anyone dropping in for the day. The best part? Proceeds from the class will contribute to YGSF’s scholarship fund for future teacher trainees.


Interested in teaching a community class?

The purpose of the Community Class is to provide new teachers the opportunity to gain valuable experience as teachers and yoga professionals. As such, teachers are not paid for the class.

Classes will be listed and marketed with regularly-scheduled yoga classes as “Community Class: YGSF Alumni.” Participating teacher trainees are expected to assist in this process to help develop their professional marketing skills .

Participating teacher trainees are required to carry professional liability insurance. You do not need to be registered with Yoga Alliance in order to teach a community class at YGSF, but you do need to have successfully graduated from an RYS 200 Hour Teacher Training program.

When your application to teach a class or classes has been accepted and you have been scheduled to teach, you are responsible for that (those) class(es). At that time, you will also be added to the list of available substitutes for the Community Class. If you cannot fulfill your commitment, it is your responsibility to have that class covered by someone else on the list of substitutes.

If a class does not run because there is no teacher, you will be charged a $100 no-show fee. This is the same policy that we apply to our regularly-scheduled yoga instructors, and we do not make any exceptions to the policy. We recommend that you take advantage of any substitution opportunities to support each other and develop a communal relationship with your colleagues.

Please make sure all the information on your student profile in Mind Body Online is current before you apply.
