Join The YATB Team!
We are looking for a qualified and experienced Yoga Teacher to join our team, who can hold a class on Saturday mornings, with the possibility of more classes in the future. We’re looking for someone to start in the New Year.
This is a great opportunity for the right person to grow their class attendance in a supportive, co-operative community space.
Yoga at The Barn opened its doors in 2015 in the beautiful village of Bourn. Founded with community at its heart, we are passionate about creating a place where everyone feels welcome, with classes that are approachable, beneficial and accessible to all. We’re looking for someone with similar values to hold classes in our inviting space.
YATB is unique in that we are a co-operative. We are individuals who come together to support one another and create and grow this special studio. We describe ourselves as a half way house between working for a large yoga studio and out of a village hall. You get the support, environment and equipment you’d expect from a studio, but with more autonomy. Our set up also means you take home more than you would from either a village hall set up or large yoga studio.
There is no doubt it is a difficult time to teach at the moment, but we’re in it together. It’s important that we find the right fit for us, but also that we are the right fit for you! So we’ve included some information we think might be useful here. If you want to join the team simply complete our application form or for any questions email us: email@example.com

Things to consider
To say times are difficult at the moment could be an understatement. It is not an easy time for many people, including small business owners. We believe during troubling times is when yoga can be at its most beneficial and are doing all we can to support our students to carry on attending class. Realistically though the cost of living crisis and possible recession is likely to affect class sizes. We don’t say this to scare you off, but more so we start off on an honest and realistic foot.
That being said our team really appreciate having each other for moral support and to bounce ideas together. More often than not us Yoga Teachers work alone and it can be very isolating. Here at YATB you still have the autonomy of being self employed but also have a team around you.
We are looking for a teacher to re-establish a class on Saturday mornings, with the potential of adding more classes to our schedule in the future, Our client base tends to be middle aged women, with a few older, from the local and surrounding villages. Ensuring your class is accessible to anyone who might attend is important. Stronger or advanced Vinyasa Flow classes are unlikely to do well with our audience.
