Karma Yogi Responsibilities

We depend on your commitment to ensure a clean and friendly space. This means that you are expected to arrive on time and never skip a shift. If you can’t come in for a good reason (sick, away), then it is up to you to cover your shift. Therefore, only apply if you are willing to commit to a minimum 3-month period.

You are responsible for welcoming and checking in all guests. You are also the first face clients seen when they come in. This is usually a student’s first experience with Bala Yoga so a positive attitude and brilliant smile are a must. Understanding and knowing our pricing options and staying up to date on retail is crucial.

Cultivating Community:
As a Karma Yogi, you are part of the team and part of our studio. We ask our Karma Yogis to be an active part of this community by enhancing the friendly dynamic within the studio and participating in as many classes as they want when they are not helping out.

You need an eye for detail and a passion for clean! A Karma Yogi’s main responsibilities are to sweep and mop the floor, clean the bathroom, and keep all spaces tidy and organized. You need an eye for detail and a passion for clean!
