our teaching mission + values


Building community is at the heart of Oak + Lotus’ mission. So we’re looking for teachers who will get to know our students, take other teachers’ classes, and truly become a part of our community. Who view Oak + Lotus as their own yoga home, and are excited to welcome students into that home.


We believe that all bodies are yoga bodies, and do all we can to ensure that every body that wants to practice with us feels welcome and safe in our space. 


We’re all about props and options! (Not “modifications”) And we’re mindful to offer them in a way that makes our students feel empowered, and *never* makes them feel “less than” for choosing a different approach to a pose or transition.


We’re a “you do you” studio.  We believe our role as teachers is to empower our students to safely make choices in their practice that fit their unique needs and intentions. 

We’re not focused on offering our students a great workout - they can get that anywhere. We believe the true power of yoga comes from its ability to heal and strengthen our students mentally, emotionally, and physically. So our teaching emphasizes self-care, honoring the body’s changing states on any given day, and making the choices that suit them best, regardless of what happened last time they were on the mat or what’s happening on the mat next to them.


We focus on secular, modern-day applications of the yoga philosophy and science-based physical anatomy.  

If the religious and/or esoteric layers of the yoga world (chanting, referencing Hindu mythology, energy work, subtle bodies, chakras, crystals, etc.) are your jam, we totally respect that. That’s just not what we’re looking to offer at Oak + Lotus.

We're looking for experienced Vinyasa, Yin, Prenatal, and Postnatal teachers

who are excited about our mission + culture.

If that's you, please come in and take some classes with us to make sure our teaching style and studio culture

feel like a good fit for you.

Still interested? Email with the following: 

  1. A note about why our mission and teaching style resonate with you.

  2. Your Full Resume (Both Yoga and Non-Yoga resumes, please!)

  3. If applicable, links to your website, social media, or any other online yoga presence.

  4. A photo of your smiling face! (Just so we can connect your name to a human. :-)

If you seem like a potential fit, we will reach out to schedule an interview. If the interview goes well, the final step will be the audition!

Details of the audition process will be provided after the interview stage. 


Please be honest with yourself (and us!) about whether Oak + Lotus truly feels like a genuine fit for your personal teaching mission + values.

We are looking for teachers whose teaching philosophies already align with our own.

We are NOT interested in asking teachers to hide their true selves in order to fit in with our culture!
