At Yoga Hero, we’re really passionate that newly qualified yoga instructors can access a safe, nurturing and positive environment in which to gain experience, earn money and get feedback from their students.
It’s also really important to us that every class at Yoga Hero is high quality and led by a confident and very capable instructor, and that heroes experience exceptional value when paying for classes.
With both of these things in mind, Yoga Hero offers newly qualified yoga teachers the opportunity to lead ‘Pay As You Feel’ classes and workshops. These can either be classes that are already on the timetable; taking over from a previous new instructor, or a new class; this will depend on a combination of your teaching experience so far, the style(s) of yoga you teach, your availability and the studios’ availability.
Payment for instructor:
For each Pay As You Feel class, you can invoice £10.50
After around six weeks, you’ll meet with Holly to discuss your classes, any feedback received, attendance figures and so on, and if the classes are going well, this fee will increase to £21.50 per class.
As a newly qualified teacher it can feel pretty daunting as you look for work, and the opportunity to lead PAYF classes at Yoga Hero was a great, supportive environment to start with. Being offered a weekly space within the timetable made me feel supported as a new teacher, and meant I continued to put all the information I’d learnt into practice. There were plenty of opportunities to receive feedback from students, and Holly would offer valuable feedback from a more seasoned teacher. It’s been nearly two years since my YTT, and there’s a continual learning with this type of work which I love, but the PAYF classes enabled me to have time and support whilst I developed my own style and voice as a teacher. I now feel confident in holding space for my students, and have fun using my creativity when designing sequences. - Kate Herrick, Calm Collective
