Studio Ambassadors - Energy Exchange Program

This program is for anyone who loves yoga and wants to practice regularly.

Your role as a Studio Ambassador will be to help create and maintain a pristine facility and a welcoming presence. The EE position requires a weekly 2.5 hours commitment, a strong work ethic, and positive energy. There will be tasks to complete on every shift such as mopping the studio, tidying the common areas, cleaning the change rooms, laundry, organizing shoes and props, etc. We are asking for a minimum 3-month commitment in exchange for an unlimited membership and 10% off retail, workshops, and clinic services!

One of the best things about our Energy Exchange program is the opportunity to meet like-minded people and become more involved in the community. It’s a great way to plug into the studio, get to know your teachers, and grow your yoga practice.
