Teaching at Mayu

Interested in hosting an event at Mayu? Please read the below information carefully.


Mayu has no affiliation with a meditation lineage or tradition. Meditation instructors from various backgrounds and diverse areas of expertise are welcome.

Our focus is strictly on meditation, mindfulness, and contemplative life skills. If your area of focus is peripherally related to meditation you’ll need to modify the content in order to fall within the range of classes offered at Mayu.


3 Steps to Becoming an Instructor

  1. Room Rental Contract
  2. Setup Fee
  3. Co-op Membership


Room Rental Contract

Events at Mayu are handled on a room rental basis. This arrangement allows instructors to be well-compensated for their offerings. (After the room rental costs are paid, all remaining profits go to the teacher.) However, it requires commitment and responsibility on the part of instructors.

Read the Classroom Rental Contract to decide if leading an event at Mayu is right for you.


If you agree to the terms of the rental contract, contact Cierra McNamara to arrange a time to meet in person. She can be reached at cierra@mayusanctuary.com or 303-437-6240. During this meeting you will be able to discuss the content of your event, classroom availability, membership, etc.


Setup Fee

Although instructors are responsible for their own advertising, we do try to help you get the word out. If you would like your event to be listed on Mayu’s website, Meetup calendar, newsletter, and social media posts, there is a one-time $35 setup fee. Waiving this fee means your event will not appear on any Mayu communication channels.


Co-op Membership

Instructors at Mayu are required to become co-op members. Everyone involved in the center plays an integral role, and our teachers are no exception. As a co-op, Mayu is truly member-owned, member-operated, and member-supported.

Professional Membership is a simple one-time $25 fee. With this payment you become a Professional Member of Mayu, and are able to use the center for drop-in meditation, foot baths, private meditation, and member-only events. In addition, you receive discounts on retail items and voting rights in the co-op.
