Down Under School of Yoga’s Seva (selfless service) program is a manifestation of our mission to honor yogic traditions in a modern context, and our belief that yoga is for everyone. We welcome reliable, passionate, and dedicated yoga students who would like to contribute to our community as in-studio or public outreach volunteers in exchange for complementary classes. We are proud to be one of the cleanest, most beautiful studios in New England, and depend upon our work-study volunteers to keep our studios orderly, uplifting and running smoothly.
We ask all seva to make a commitment of two (2) hours per week for a minimum of six (6) months, during which you must be able to be fully present and enthusiastic in supporting Down Under's mission to provide a nurturing space for our students. Our students, teachers, and management team rely our seva, therefore punctuality, dependability and working well under pressure are essential, and we ask seva respect their position as they would any other job.
In exchange for our sevas' dedication, seva receive one class credit for each hour worked, applicable to regularly scheduled drop-in classes. Additionally, all our seva are included in social and educational community events, and are given prime consideration for positions in management. Volunteers who demonstrate exemplary long-term commitment are offered the opportunity to increase their responsibly and integration with the studio by working additional shifts, or taking on roles involving administrative or desk support. To our seva who commit to a minimum of four hours per week for longer than six (6) month periods, we show our gratitude by providing all benefits of a monthly membership: unlimited classes, 10% off singular, non-promotional wellness offerings, and 10% off workshops.
