FOODPRINTZ CAFÉ IN HOUSE YOGA TEACHER JOB APPLICATION
FOODPRINTZ CAFÉ is a collaboration between Vegan Chef/ Jivamukti Yoga Teacher & Activist Karo Tak and Psychologist/ Mindfulness Coach & Activist Lisa Dickmann. WE HAVE a vision! To be a central hub for the community, for the PEOPLE, to create, educate & facilitate. To establish a place and a space where everyone is welcome. Next to our vegan daily running, vegan cafe, we are implementing Jivamukti and other Yoga Classes, meditation, (cooking) workshops and special events like documentary & movie nights and more. Thinking about the carbon footprint: reducing the incidence and impact of animal cruelty by providing a fun, local and yummy approach to nourishment through running a vegan café 6 days a week.
THE YOGA SPACE:
We have created a nice, small, intimate yoga space downstairs in our basement where we have been teaching weekly classes since October 2016. At the moment we teach weekly Meditation Classes, Jivamukti Yoga and a Yoga Beginners Course on Thursday night. We also have regular workshops and events happening in the space. The space has mats, blocks and belts. The space we provide is very DIY and we love this. The students love this. It is not a studio, as a teacher you need to put some extra effort in keeping the space clean (before and after class) making sure you arrive at least 30 minutes before your class and welcome the students. (there is no front desk 😉 The space holds about 14 students at one time.
