Seva Work Study

We are proud to be one of the cleanest, most beautiful studios in New England, and we depend upon our work-study volunteers to keep the studio looking beautiful and running smoothly. Down Under welcomes dedicated yoga students interested in becoming Seva (which means selfless service) as in-studio or outreach volunteers. We seek reliable, enthusiastic, and dedicated students who would like to contribute to our community in exchange for free classes. We ask Seva to commit for one year and to treat the position as they would a job. Our students, teachers, and management team rely on the work of Seva so dependability and working well under pressure are essential.

Trading occurs on a weekly basis for hours worked. New volunteers are assigned one two-hour shift per week and earn two classes in exchange. Experienced volunteers are offered the opportunity to work two shifts of two hours per week in exchange for unlimited classes.

If you are interested, we invite you to an initial training with our Studio Care Manager. You’ll meet for an hour to learn the Seva responsibilities and work a typical shift, learning our expectations for attention to detail, efficiency, reliability, and quality of work. If you would like to learn more about joining our team of exceptional work-study volunteers, please contact Kayla at
