Teaching Opportunities

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. Classes for elementary age kids (grades K-5) take place after school, and classes for preschool kids (ages 3-5) take place during the day as well as after school. If you have experience working with kids we will train you! Our next training is scheduled for August 19, 2023, and no experience is required to attend this training.
