Punk Rock Yoga–Become a Teacher

We’re thrilled you are interested in teaching the Punk Rock Yoga┬« style in your community. This is the licensing program for individual teachers. If you are a business seeking to license multiple teachers, or you are a non-profit, please contact us for licensing details. Please note that we do not assign exclusive territory–if you wish to teach in a city where we currently have a teacher we have room to share.

Is this for me? See if these statements apply to you:

  • I practice yoga for the sheer joy of it, and as a tool to help me lead a better life.
  • I believe everyone, not just people who believe in Hinduism, can benefit from yoga.
  • Yoga students should be empowered to make their own decisions about their bodies and their minds.
  • I am ambitious and can manage my own projects quite well.
  • Yoga can be practiced anywhere, not just in a yellow-walled studio with a statue of Ganesha.
  • When newcomers enter my class, I try to welcome them, rather than impress them.
  • I enjoy studying philosophy and interpreting it for myself. I enjoy exploring the unchartered territory of new ideas.
  • I reject systems that teach the value of one person is greater than another person.
  • Making and posting fliers to promote myself sounds like a lot of fun.
  • I enjoy live music and would love to work with musicians.
  • My musical tastes have been described as edgy, eclectic, or downright weird.
  • I would love to work for myself.
  • My personal yoga practice usually involves music.
  • Bright lights and large mirrors just don’t do it for me.

If these statements apply to you, congratulations, you are a budding Punk Rock Yoga teacher.
