Apprentice & Assist Baptiste Programs

If you completed an assisting application in 2014, you may simply go into that application and select the programs in 2015 that you are available for or interested in assisting. You will not need to complete the interview process again.

If you did not fill out an apprenticing or assisting application in 2014, you will need to complete the application (links above).

Please note that we will build our teams chronologically based on upcoming programs. At least 12 weeks prior to a program, we will reach out to those who have said they are available to assist to schedule a phone interview. If you are selected for the team, we will send a formal invitation no later than 8 weeks prior to the program start. 

 

Apprentice Program Description

The Apprentice Program is for Baptiste Certified Teachers who have not yet assisted a weeklong Baptiste program and wish to be of service in this way. As an apprentice, you will be in co-creation of the program as a team member and as a participant in the development of your own leadership. If accepted to this program, payment of tuition (found in the application form) is required prior to the start date.

Assisting Program Description

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

Our assistants are Baptiste Certified 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 Baptiste Certified Teacher (or in the process).

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

Frequently Asked Questions

I have applied to assist or apprentice in the past and have not been chosen, is there something I ought to know?

Our community is generous and many want to assist at our programs, more than we have space for on each team. As we choose assisting teams we are looking at the whole team, the skills of each person and how all the individuals will meld in a group dynamic. We appreciate every community member who applies!

What do I need to bring with me?

Watch, water bottle, yoga mat, blocks, strap, yogi toes, Baptiste clothing to wear while assisting.

I don’t have a lot of current Baptiste clothing.  When can I buy my new Baptiste clothing?

You will be able to purchase Baptiste wear if you choose before the program starts.

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.”
