Emerging Instructors Program

The SweatBox Emerging Instructor Program is for you if you are a new teacher looking for a way to develop your skills in the yoga room. Becoming a yoga teacher starts when you finish training and is a lifetime journey. The SweatBox Emerging Instructor Program is a supportive place for new teachers to develop their skills and teaching voice. As a long-time Seattle Yoga studio, we receive requests for teachers to teach at our studio every day. The Emerging Instructor program is a way for emerging teachers to hone their skills under the guidance and tutelage of senior SweatBox teachers. The SweatBox Emerging Instructor will work with  existing SweatBox teachers and community to cultivate and refine their teaching skill set.

Tuition for the Emerging Instructor Program is $425. Tuition includes the following:

Level I

Emerging instructor Level I is a practice/assessment period. Emerging Instructors are guaranteed four community classes followed by a coaching session by our Emerging Instructors team coaches Laura Culberg and Frani Assaf. When The SweatBox coach determines that the Emerging Instructor is ready to move onto Level II, they will advance to this next stage. Completion of the four community classes is not a guarantee of advancing to Level II but the majority of our Emerging Instructor participants do advance. If a participant is not ready, additional individual coaching or teaching practice may be required.

Level II

Once graduated from Level I, The SweatBox Emerging Instructor will work as a substitute teacher at The SweatBox under the supervision of SweatBox management and senior instructors. The SweatBox Emerging Instructor will teach 25 classes at The SweatBox at the Emerge Stipend rate. If the instructor shows immediate potential and is put on the schedule with a regular class, they immediately advance to Level III

Level III

After teaching 25 classes at the studio at that rate (or determined to be , the evolving teacher will participate in a review and at that time it will be determined if the Emerging Instructor will move into Full Instructor status. Once an emerging instructor is given a regular class, they are considered a full instructor and will receive starting teacher rates and access to sales commissions, Employer Sponsored SEP program and partner yoga practice benefits. Once made full instructor, individuals will have access to sales commissions, Employer Sponsored SEP program and partner yoga practice benefits.
