Yoga Trade is officially open for rock ‘n’ roll ladies and gentlemen. What the yogi is it all about you ask? Founder and fellow salt gypsy, Erica Hartnick, gives us the d-low…

Yoga Trade in action

I thought of the idea of Yoga Trade while travelling in Bali. I have been a travelling yoga teacher at surf resorts for the past few years so the idea just came naturally. I would normally just seek out places to teach on my own but noticed there was a need for a ‘yoga job’ website.I also love the idea of people volunteering and work trading around the globe as a way to make it financially possible to travel. I find you can have incredible experiences when you engage in work exchange! And to me, yoga is all about the experience. I then collaborated with my friends, Pat and Christie, who manage the Yoga Farm in Costa Rica, and we decided to make the site happen!

What is the concept of Yoga Trade and who is it for? Yoga Trade is a new and empowering online network for all yogis! The Yoga Trade community connects yoga instructors, yoga students, and organisations that offer yoga around the world. Post and explore jobs, work exchange gigs, travel opportunities. Plan, promote and manage events. Build a following and stay connected wherever your path takes you next.
