Did you know that the average pay for a yoga instructor is $34,888 per year (according to payscale.com)?
In most countries, that is not enough to live on, let alone to THRIVE on!
So, why aren’t yoga teachers making more money?
They’re providing an amazing service to their students and clients, helping people to live better lives and be healthier.
But, at the end of the day, most yoga teachers do not think of themselves as a business.
Teaching yoga is a job or a hobby. Or, it’s a deep passion fueled by the heart.
But it’s not often thought of as a ‘business’.
Mixing money with yoga can seem like a big ‘no-no’ (it did for me for many years until I rebuilt my relationship with money)...
And that is because 99% of Yoga Teacher Trainings do not cover the necessary aspects of growing a yoga business in our modern world.
They teach you how to teach yoga, but they don’t teach you how to build a business.
There’s a lot more to being a yoga teacher, especially a yoga teacher who THRIVES, than learning how to teach asanas in a studio.
