With respect to auditioning for a yoga job to gain a teacher salary position - you should get some background on the type of classes that the center is expecting to see. If it's a fitness center they'll be looking for a physical class. They may simply classify it as advanced or beginner. I know of one round of class auditions where the fitness center was looking for a gentle class but didn't explain that or their requirements. Teachers came in running dynamic power flow classes and of course they didn't get the job. After going through 7 teacher auditions one teacher walked in, taught a gentle class, and got the job.
The lesson here is for yoga teachers to ask basic questions in the interview. Most of us answer questions during an interview, but we should be asking them too. There are some classes that you don't want to teach. A church might want you to teach a Christian yoga class. A pre-school may want to teach little ones and so on. We don't all want to teach yoga to the same audience.
