Stretch Your Limits with YoKid

Nov 25, 2013 03:26AM

YoKid, a Washington D.C.-based 501(c)3 organization that provides instruction in yoga for kids & teens, is looking for volunteers. By participating in yoga, kids & teens are able to foster greater self-awareness and, in turn, realize their full potential physically, academically, socially, and emotionally.  To carry out their mission, YoKid is looking for volunteers, who can help in a variety of ways.

First, yoga teachers are needed. Their volunteer yoga teachers must have previous yoga experience and have an interest in teaching kids yoga.  These volunteer yoga teachers are paid a stipend for each class they teach. Additionally, volunteer classroom assistants provide an extra set of hands for the YoKid yoga teachers. Helping in this way allows those who are new to yoga and/or you want to help but not in a lead position, find a place to help. The assistants support the teachers within the classroom as they deliver fun and creative yoga classes in a safe and nurturing environment. To become an assistant, volunteers must commit to a minimum of one class per week for six weeks (typical classes are 45 to 60 minutes in length).   No prior yoga experience necessary.
