When reaching out about jobs/opportunities or interviewing with Yoga Trade community members, be sure to trust your intuition and engage in CLEAR communication. We advise not to give out your personal details, email, or phone number, until you feel that the contact is the kind of person or organization that you are interested in hearing from. Review profiles carefully, and conduct your own research so you feel comfortable. Before traveling abroad or hiring someone internationally, we recommend that you have some kind of video call (Skype, etc.) to make sure things feel right.
It is important that details are clear from the beginning. Make a list of questions to ask each other, such as:
-What exactly is the trade/exchange/job?
-What is the compensation?
-What will the daily schedule look like?
-What are the sleeping and eating arrangements?
If you are uncomfortable with the conditions, it is up to you to come up with different solutions with each other and to set personal boundaries. If a person, situation, or profile seems unsafe for any reason, move on.
Any arrangement you make is entirely your responsibility. Yoga Trade is a platform for listings and enables initial contact between the yoga teachers/wellness professionals and the hosts. Please review our terms and conditions.
