Do you do drink blueprint cleanses instead of picklebacks and and consider flaxseed bars a sometimes food? (Too much agave!) Consider applying for a job that comes with benefits not seen this side of Anna Wintour’s desk: fresh flowers, staff concierge, yoga retreats and more.

Mediabistro lists this copywriting job for the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, a school for aspiring health coaches where you’ll have to be the voice of healthy eating habits in emails, web copy, ad copy, blogs and so on. Job requirements include desire to “become part of a team of incredible, healthy, happy people” that “bonds together every day!” Well, alright. If you’re still interested, read about the pesky responsibilities here. But first, more on those crazy perks, which include not only a 401K but a (?) 403B, which apparently includes waving crystals and mugwort over your savings. Benefits include:

Beautiful, centrally located modern offices with a natural work environment
Work with like-minded, health-oriented colleagues
Organic breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks
Staff that bonds together over lunch every day!
Complimentary in-house yoga classes
Full health care benefits
Staff retreats to destinations like Kripalu
Paid vacation days and major holidays
401K with 4% employer contribution
Fresh flowers on your desk
Monthly TransitChek pass
Biweekly chair massages
Chiropractic adjustments
Staff concierge service

Career tip: If you want a bacon double cheese for lunch, send the concierge out to get it.
