Are you interested in teaching yoga to inspire students, to change lives, and to embrace a healthy lifestyle? Would you like to earn a great living, work from anywhere, and share the benefits of yoga with your community? Here are three important questions to ask yourself before you go any further:
- Personal or profession? Are you interested in yoga teacher training for personal growth only, or is professional growth also important to you?
- Religion or science? Are you interested in Hinduism and New Age spirituality, or are you are more interested in science-based yoga, focused on mind-body fitness, biomechanics, the nervous system, and endocrine system?
- Hobby or career? Are you interested in teaching yoga as a hobby, or are you interested in the business side of things, too? Meaning, do you plan to earn a living as a teacher?

Benefits of Teaching Yoga
Work That Matters. Have you ever suffered in a job where you felt like a warm body at a desk, but not much more? The wrong job can be soul-sucking, while the right one can fuel your fire. Yoga teaching offers a deep level of meaning and purpose. On a typical day, you will help students achieve strength and balance, relieve stress, and restore their health using the amazing power of yoga. You will play a huge role in their lives and become a leader in your local community.
Freedom and Independence. As a yoga teacher, you can live life on your own terms. Online yoga teaching is booming, which means you can even live and work from anywhere. Prefer to teach in person? There continues to be more and more opportunities at studios, gyms, or fitness centers. Prefer something non-traditional? There are great opportunities in schools, medical facilities, and sports clubs. The best part is that you have the freedom to choose your own path and you can always change your mind.
Exciting Career Opportunities. CNN ranked ‘yoga instructor’ as the #10 pick on a list of the top 100 jobs. It reported that median teacher pay is currently $62K per year for part time work. There is more demand than supply of qualified instructors, so our graduates are launching exciting careers every day.
Travel and Adventure. There is no better travel job than teaching yoga. Our graduates work online from anywhere, and also teach on cruise ships and yachts, in health resorts, and 5-star hotels. Many teachers book seasonal work in resort towns and use their teaching gigs as an excuse to see the world.
A Positive Peer Group. It can be difficult to live a life of purpose when your friends and family are on different paths. As a yoga teacher, your peer group will be health-oriented, adventurous, and passionate about learning – just like you. This new network will bring out the best parts of you that may have been lying dormant for years.
