Join our team!
We are Sound On Yoga - an outdoor yoga studio in Belgium that was founded in 2019 by Molly Henderson.
Sound On Yoga shares immersive yoga experiences guided by dedicated teachers in Belgium. We connect deeply with nature, 'flow' to soulful music through state-of-the-art headphones, and move through Vinyasa Slow Flow at a deliberate, relaxed pace.
We stay true to the easy-going and laid-back energy that being outside in nature brings. We strive to create a welcoming environment, for everyone under the sun. Let's flow together! ☀️
Doing Things Differently
With people's interest in yoga and wellness at an all time high since the COVID19 pandemic, and the soul-nourishing SoundOnYoga vibe resonating with more people across the country, we are seeking individuals to join our growing team to help us reach more people from across Belgium, from a range of backgrounds, and help empower them through immersive yoga experiences in the great outdoors.
We are a highly empathetic and compassionate team who aim to ensure every individual feels supported and empowered through every interaction with us (both on and off the mat). We host boutique private events and only work with third-party businesses who align with our values and ethos. We actively facilitate connections between participants to ensure everyone feels welcome and part of our wonderful community.
Culture and Values
Our Sound On Yoga teachers are:
Highly creative and musically aware - we practice breathwork,
move and flow in alignment of the soulful rhythm of music.
FUN - laughter and fun is central to what we do and how we work.
Honest and compassionate - we are a team of highly empathetic individuals.
Forward thinkers and problem solvers - Working with technical equipment, such as our wireless setup, headphones etc. requires us to be switched on and focused.
Passionate - everyone has a fire in their belly to make a positive impact in the world - we go the extra mile to get to know each individual who shows up for class.
Adventurous and love the outdoors(!!)
Forever an optimist - working in a weather dependent industry has its challenges, so optimism is key. We live by the phrase “there’s no such thing as bad weather, only being under prepared!”
