Top 3 Reasons Yoga Trapeze®
Teachers Are So Successful

Q: “Can I make a living teaching inversion yoga?”

Yoga teachers struggle in business when they try to sell yoga. You need to stop trying to sell yoga and start solving problems. One huge problem in the world? Back pain. It’s one of the top three reasons people come to yoga. Here’s why Yoga Trapeze Teachers are doing so well right now teaching privates, semi-privates, and small groups.

#1. Back Pain Is a Huge Problem

BENEFITS: Inversion therapy gives you instant traction on your spine, creating more space between your vertebrae. This 1-2 mm of space can reduce or even eliminate pinched nerve pain. Inversion yoga also reduces electrical activity in over-tensed muscles, strengthens the posterior chain muscles that support the spine, and improves mobility.

HOW IT WORKS: Classes are typically 60 minutes long and include a combination of strength, flexibility and balance work. Yes, you teach all the fun, flying poses you see on Instagram, but you also focus on grip strength, posterior chain strength, passive flexibility training, and more. It’s a complete fitness training protocol particularly well-suited to those with back pain and injuries.

#2. Perfect for Private Classes

BENEFITS: earn 2-3x what a typical yoga teacher makes per hour, set your own schedule, be your own boss.

HOW IT WORKS: Teach in your home or theirs, in CrossFit boxes, or yoga studios. The Yoga Trapeze has a steep learning curve (it takes 2-3 classes to get the hang of it), so private instruction is ideal. Since many of your students will have pain issues, working one-on-one is usually the best.

#3. 100,000 Students But Very Few Teachers!

BENEFITS: The manufacturing company, YOGABODY, has a huge digital footprint internationally with heavy marketing penetration into 21 countries and brand ambassadors in 13 countries. This means that anyone teaching this method is, by default, taking advantage of the existing marketing without spending any money of your own. This makes it much easier to get clients.

HOW IT WORKS: If you’re a certified teacher, you can use the Yoga Trapeze trademark on your website, social media, and class schedules. People will find you naturally as they are actively searching for teachers. There are over 100,000 Yoga Trapeze students and very few teachers, so it’s a huge opportunity.

Student Reviews

“I love the variety of movements that the Yoga Trapeze offers.”

(Traction, opening, stretching, inversions with an added support of the sling). Plus, you look so awesome doing it! The communication and support offered by the staff/team were exceptional—all concerns were immediately addressed for the benefit of all the students. I totally enjoyed interacting and meeting the students from all over the world who took part in the training.

The course content covered all areas: physical training, business and marketing, injuries, anatomy studies relevant to the practice, etc., which enabled me to understand and be ready to execute practice in my area. They have even left all support open for us should we have concerns. I am so excited to start sharing this with more people of my community and to better myself as a teacher.

“This training was very comprehensive, very well thought out, and was one of the best I’ve ever taken.”

I appreciated the community built into our daily interaction, while students were encouraged to ask any and all questions without judgment. The trainers were quick to respond to every video, question, or comment. Even the anatomy training has already enhanced the way I teach in my mat classes. This training is relevant to all facets yoga has to offer.

– Jessica Mitchell

“The training is so complete and high quality.”

I realized how little I knew and I feel so happy now for the knowledge I received. Totally recommended!

– Melissa

“Holy moly, what great information—I enjoyed all of it!”

I really enjoyed the online training because it was easy to follow and understand. If at any time we were confused, it was easy to get in touch and get questions answered. I also really enjoyed the books that were recommended before the training started.
