How to get references from a potential yoga teacher

Recommended Posts

When it comes to hiring a new coach for your yoga studio, it is important to do your due diligence. This means interviewing potential yoga teachers and checking their references. It's not enough to just look at their qualifications or experience - you need to make sure that they are a good fit for your community and that their values align with yours. By calling references, you can get an idea of what it would be like to work with this person and see if they would be a good addition to your team.

Finding the right people to fill your roles is the single biggest challenge in yoga studios today. You can’t grow into a multi-location yoga business without having the right people in the correct roles.

Remember, a resume is always a record of embellished accomplishments with all the low points removed. A resume is an Instagram filter for their professional career. We have to get past those filters to find out who the person is, and if they fit into our yoga studio in the roles that we need someone to thrive in. It isn't uncommon for a yoga instructor applying for a management position, or a lead instructor position, who has a resume that says they have the experience necessary to fill the role but have not been totally truthful about their experience. Those are the teachers we have to filter out ASAP.

When you have a position that will be responsible for the growth of your yoga studio, you must be extremely diligent in your hiring process. Remember, if you want to grow your business, you have to have A-level employees. The only way to make sure you have A-level employees and not a studio full of B and C employees, or worse, is by checking the references they have listed and finding your own references for the potential hire.
