I have had this same problem applying to studios as a yoga teacher. It’s not spoken, but it’s obvious that if someone loves my resume, talking to me on the phone , and then suddenly changes the parameters after meeting me, it’s most likely the way I look. It has happened several times so I know I’m not imagining it. Age discrimination is out there and it applies to all fields across the board.

Good luck in your job search. Keep writing!
