Have Ashtanga, will travel

Two different sounding positions for an Ashtanga teacher are out there, via the October newsletter at Ashtanga.com:

1. Ashtanga Teacher Wanted – Basel, Switzerland
Looking for a qualified teacher to cover my evening classes (Mysore and 2x led class) in Dec 2015 (up to Dec 22) atAshtanga Yoga Basel, Switzerland. Housing next to the shala and a small salary can be given. Contact info@ashtanga-basel.ch.

2. Ashtanga Teacher Wanted – Huaraz, Peru
This is a work-trade position at a shamanic holistic healing center in the mountains of Peru. The minimum commitment is 3 months. We are looking for a teacher who can teach the 8 Limbs of Ashtanga Yoga to retreat guests. Every applicant must first complete a retreat as the first part of their evaluation process. This is required before beginning your work exchange with us, so that we can see if you are suitable to work with our team and in this line of work. Please visit the website for more information and to apply for the position: http://thewayinn.com/work-exchange-program.

Given my impression of Switzerland — orderly to the nth degree — and my idea of a shamanic holistic healing center, I’m not sure you’d find two jobs more on the far ends of the employment spectrum. But we’ve had some success in connecting teachers to jobs, so have at it if you’re interested.
