Certified Yoga Instructor- Alpaca Vinyasa
Are you a yoga instructor in the Richmond/southeast Fayette County area? Do you find deep breathing to be that much more effective in fresh, country air?
Would you like to experience teaching yoga sessions among our herd of curious ALPACAS??
While goat yoga has become a craze, we prefer alpacas for being curious yet slightly stand-offish. While we love our goats and their antics, for those of us that prefer our space, alpacas are a respectful alternative. Alpacas may sniff your hair in downward dog, but they will not try to scale your backside!
River Hill Ranch is searching for a certified yoga instructor to lead one session of Alpaca Vinyasa per week for Spring through Fall. Day/time and terms are negotiable. We would also consider partnering with a studio. Above all, we’re looking for someone certified that loves animals, teaching yoga, and the outdoors.
