You can ask the facility what their needs are for a yoga instructor with regard to schedule. They are generally flexible if they are in need of an instructor. There are different types of yoga, however, and it helps to be versed in as many as possible ie: Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, etc. It helps to have a strong personal practice as well. At the facility, you generally have a choice on whether you choose to use your own music or not or whether to use certain kinds of equipment to help safely facilitate your class ie: yoga blocks, straps, etc. You generally design your own class. It helps to get feedback from your students so you know where to improve. I would also advised being versed in safety, first aid, cpr, and being knowledgeable about various medical conditions since all your students are different ie: the needs of a prenatal practitioner of yoga are different from a geriatric or young athlete. You must also be very clear about your wording when you teach. This takes practice, therefore, I would advise looking into yoga teacher training if you are interested in becoming an instructor.
