Give some and get some with this awesome opportunity.

Okay, so I'm not a rich person and fitness programs and gym memberships can get expensive quickly. A couple years ago, I was really wanting to make a change in my fitness, but again money is an issue for me.

Some people take the free route of going to a park or running around their neighborhood, but I didn't believe that would work for me. I need more motivation, and to be in a safe environment with other people. I get super paranoid going to parks by myself or running alone. I did some research and found an opportunity that really sounded too good to be true.

Yoga8 in Waco (formerly Yogapod) offers an amazing Karma Yogi internship program that gives you the option to work 3.5 hours each week in exchange for a full membership. I was a Karma Yogi for 2 years and I absolutely loved it!

If selected to be a Karma Yogi, you will work one 3.5 hour shift per week. The Yogi manager will set your schedule based on your availability and the semester schedule. Duties for your shift are very simple and only vary slightly depending on time of day.

Typical duties include:

  • washing towels
  • sanitizing yoga mats
  • cleaning classrooms after each class
  • sweeping the lobby
  • restocking towels for the lobby
  • taking out the trash
  • assisting teachers with classroom prop set-up
  • restocking the cooler with water

Again, all very simple tasks that most people are capable of executing. So once a week, you'll go in for your shift and complete your assigned tasks, and in return you get a full membership which allows you to attend as many classes as you like!

I would have never left the Karma Yogi program if I had more availability and still lived in Waco. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, reach out to the Karma Yogi manager, Debbie Evans. Mrs. Evans is extremely sweet and can be reached at the Yoga8 studio by calling (817) 300-9161 or by filling out a contact form on the Yoga8 studio website.
