Join Our Team!

As the interest in kids yoga grows, so does the demand for our classes. Yoga Playgrounds is actively seeking yoga teachers who are interested in teaching yoga to kids on site at schools throughout Portland and the surrounding cities.

Background Info

Yoga Playgrounds is Portland’s premier school based yoga enrichment program for kids founded in 2010. We are a group of passionate, enthusiastic yoga teachers who offer fun, engaging yoga classes to hundreds of kids on site at dozens of schools each week. (We teach yoga summer camps on site at schools too!) Classes are held Monday-Friday between 9:00-4:00 at preschools, daycares and elementary schools. Classes are generally scheduled in 4 seasons (fall, winter, spring, summer), and meet once a week for 30-45 minutes in 8-10 week sessions. Each teacher is responsible for creating their own curriculum and delivering a fun, educational yoga class each week for the duration of the 8-10 week session. New teachers can expect to teach between 2-3 classes each week to start, with the opportunity to teach more classes after 3 months.
