are you looking for a volunteer or an employee?

To be fair, it does sound like they're asking someone to work a couple of hours in exchange for something of proportionate value - old school barter.

this has been previously posted as a "work-study" opportunity, which it is absolutely is not. It strikes me as rather strange for a yoga studio to not have an owner/employee available to prepare the studio for a class, answer questions about the studio when the studio is open and a class is being offered, and organize the equipment. It's one thing to offer a free class to someone to come a few minutes early and handle the sign-in sheet for a class/collect the money, it's another thing to have them take on the tasks of an employee/owner.

Hi Captain Flannel,

The position is not be confused with the federal work study program, just in case that is not clear. As someone else mentioned, it's an old school barter, as in "work in exchange for study". The interested person would show up 20 minutes ahead of time to open the studio and sign in the class. That person can take classes at no cost.

I held a work study position at a neighborhood studio when I first started practicing yoga. I was able to take as many classes as I wanted for about 40 minutes of work per week. 2nd Story has the same arrangement with our work study people.


It's not for everyone, but the people who participate tend to stick around and keep their shifts. It's a friendly, low stress situation that I hope is mutually beneficial.

I hope this calms any looming concerns you may have about my posts, or about the sign in/work study position. I'm happy to answer any questions directly, so feel free to swing by the studio, or reach me via email at info@secondstorymovement.com.

Kindly,
Elaine O'Brien
