Hot on the heels of the Celebriyogi ‘Teacher Talent’ Edition, comes your chance to be a reality star! Sorta. A dear friend* spotted this Wanted ad for USA’s reality series “Character Fantasy” searching for a yoga instructor to help one aspiring yogi achieve the dream (fantasy?) of becoming a teacher. A little like MTV’s ‘Made’ but maybe a bit less teenybopper targeted – we’ve never seen it.
Here’s the ad from realitywanted.com
Character Fantasy gives everyday people the chance to live out their ultimate fantasies. We’ve done all sorts of fantasies ranging from extreme sports like dirt birking and mountain climbing to simple celebrity inspired makeovers. Coming up on Monday, July 27, we are helping someone to begin her dream of becoming a yoga instructor/studio owner. We are looking for a trained yoga instructor that could help guide her through the teaching process and work with her on her practice. Because of the nature of this show we ask that you only reply if you are available on the shoot date and in the great LA area. Previous experience teaching a must and knowledge of Bikram yoga a plus.
This is a paid gig. Payment negotiated upon hiring.
Of course a TV show can’t a yoga instructor make, but at least in this case the aspiring yogi could possibly continue studying and actually achieve the dream? A little more likely than say the superhero and private eye fantasies (a bulk of the show is about being made over as a movie star or “character”).
So here you go! Another paying gig for the yoga teacher. Of course, we figure you need to be one of those ‘personalities’ for this, and what is it…photogenic?
Also, this is shooting in LA, so be ready for the cavalcade of yogi/actor competition.

Yoga is a way of life, a conscious act, not a set or series of learning principles. The dexterity, grace, and poise you cultivate, as a matter of course, is the natural outcome of regular practice. You require no major effort. In fact trying hard will turn your practices into a humdrum, painful, even injurious routine and will eventually slow down your progress. Subsequently, and interestingly, the therapeutic effect of Yoga is the direct result of involving the mind totally in inspiring (breathing) the body to awaken. Yoga is probably the only form of physical activity that massages each and every one of the body’s glands and organs. This includes the prostate, a gland that seldom, if ever, gets externally stimulated in one’s whole life.
