Teaching Opportunities

Join Our Team!

At Yoga Playgrounds, we’re on a mission to empower kids to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in an evolving world, and to live their best lives. Our Team of Teachers are most critical to our mission, and we’re dedicated to building a collaborative culture of talented, enthusiastic, and diverse individuals who will continuously strive to improve the programs we deliver daily in schools and to students.

We are actively seeking individuals who are interested in teaching yoga to kids on site at schools throughout Portland, OR and the surrounding cities. 

Classes take place during and after the school day. If you have experience working with kids but lack yoga experience we will train you! Our next training is scheduled for August 17, 2024, and no experience is required to attend this training.

If you have a sincere desire to make a positive impact in kids’ lives and are passionate about yoga and/or mindfulness, we’d love to hear from you.
