  1. Fill out the application form.

ASSIST

Assisting at a Baptiste Program is an opportunity to be of service and grow with others.

Our assistants are Certified Baptiste Teachers who are coachable, knowledgeable in hands on assisting and are committed to holding space for and being of service to the larger Baptiste community.

Assisting is an extremely intensive, hands-on process requiring 100% presence and commitment. As an assistant, you hold space for the entire program and are vital to creating the powerful transformative culture that exists within a Baptiste Program.

For weeklong programs: to assist or apprentice you must be a Certified Baptiste Teacher.

For short programs: the preference is given to Certified Baptiste Teachers and we invite those who have gone to Level One and Level Two to apply as well (you must be on the path to Baptiste Certification).

What can I expect from the Apprentice Program?

“The Apprentice Program opened my eyes to teaching in a whole new way. The Baptiste team co-created a powerful and supportive environment where I could grow, learn and step-up as a leader. I am beyond blessed to have received the benefits of personal mentoring both on and off the mat from the brilliantly talented senior team as well as Baron himself.  It was a rare opportunity to develop my skills, knowledge and personal commitments through inspiring journaling, personal check-in’s and daily team meetings. I had the amazing opportunity to listen to and share with the entire Level I group and be a witness to their transformations, I truly felt the power of being for others. I am grateful for the time I spent as an apprentice working in partnership with this group of exceptional teachers and teachers in training. What I learned at this program went far beyond learning to assist a yoga class. I am truly inspired by Baptiste Power Yoga and the Apprentice Assistant Program and through it I am forever changed for the better.”
