Step 1: Do it for the right reasons
Step 2: Start off like a pro!
Step 3: Make a personal connection
Step 4: Build an online presence
This isn't essential, but if you are unable to apply for a position in person, an online presence can really help show potential employers who you are. Social media such as Instagram is great at connecting with a global community of yogis, but if a teacher has his or her own website, it shows me an added level of dedication to their careers. There are lots of tools for putting together a simple but beautiful website on your own. If you have some short videos online of you teaching, it will show a studio owner who you are, which can really help you land that dream job.
Step 5: Keep it real!
Step 6: Lead by example
Step 7: Stay positive
I hope this has been helpful advice that takes you closer to your dream. Let me know in the comments below if you have any questions.
