Serve at Hridaya
Serving at our center is a wonderful opportunity to integrate daily life into spirituality in a supportive and caring environment. As the Center is a vibrant, busy place, we have a wide range of positions requiring a variety of skills.
We strive to create an environment that reflects the Hridaya Yoga Attitudes and Community Vision. There is a special emphasis on seeing our work as an essential aspect of our spiritual practice. As such, we look for people who have a commitment to their own spiritual transformation and a sincere desire to serve.
Whether we work in the kitchen, teach students, or create marketing campaigns, we know that our efforts are in service of introducing more people to the Hridaya teachings and supporting them on the path of the Spiritual Heart, while serving within our guidelines.
Working at Hridaya is an opportunity to step out of ourselves and into the flow of Divine Grace.
