How to Create the Perfect Yoga Resume

With yoga becoming increasingly popular, people are considering teaching yoga as a supplemental, or full-time job. With high competition, make sure your resume really sells your skills. This will you a head start when looking for jobs.

Take a look at some of these resume hacks to get you ahead of the resume game.

Make It Professional

Just because you would teach yoga simply out of love for the practice, doesn’t mean you should sell yourself short on the resume front. Set your resume standards high and studios will take you seriously. Whereas, offering something unprofessional and scrappy could cause potential employees to worry your practice is of the same standard.

Take the time to find a design or template that will incorporate all your skills and training and don’t rush.

Think about which sections you plan on including and set aside an area to include a mission statement about your practice. Make sure, when including your education and training, that you have all the relevant dates and details on hand, nothing looks worse than a half finished resume.

A yoga instructor’s resume may look a little different to that of other professions, with much emphasis put on training and accreditation from professional yoga bodies, with that in mind make sure you place training high up on the page.

Make Your Mission Clear

In your mission statement, you’ll make it clear exactly who you are and what you value in your practice. This is your chance to show that you’re not only an expert in your field but that you have all the tools you need to translate that skill into teaching. Don’t rush this section, as it’s likely to be the first part your potential employer will see.

Resume writer, Tom Adams from Eliteassignmenthelp, said: “Your mission statement summarizes you as a potential employee, it also tells the employer very quickly what matters most to you as a person and as an instructor. Be truthful and don’t sell yourself short, remember you have a lot to offer”.

Make sure your mission statement reflects something of the organization you wish to work for. This means, of course, you may need to slightly alter your wording for each resume you submit. This is a perfectly normal part of resume writing and shows that you are paying attention to what each employer is really looking for.

Don’t Let Mistakes Creep In

They’re small but they matter, spelling and grammar errors show that you have not paid attention, so check and check again. You may not be confident in your writing but don’t let this lack of ability hold you back.

Think Creatively

If you’re looking for your first teaching gig, then writing about your experience is going to feel difficult, but think creatively and your resume will stand out for all the right reasons.

To boost your experience section, consider holding free lessons for friends or in your local school or community centre. This kind of creative practice stands out and shows your commitment to teaching yoga.

The same applies for education; if your training is still on-going make clear your commitment to continual professional development and your desire for self-improvement. Employees will welcome someone who is willing to take instruction and learn as they go.

Landing your first yoga teaching gig may take several attempts and what seems like endless application forms. However, getting the right resume will still put you ahead of the many others who apply with a substandard effort, or no resume at all.

Take your time to craft something just right that reflects your personality, experience, education and on-going desire for personal and professional improvement. Your next, best job is right around the corner, so what are you waiting for?
