Can you actually make a living from teaching yoga? As someone who’s been there, I’m here to tell you that the answer is a resounding YES! But how do you go about doing that, you ask? Grab a cup of tea, sit back, and let me share some wisdom.
Making a living as a yoga teacher is not only possible but also incredibly rewarding. However, it does require some strategic planning, creativity, and, of course, passion. Here are a few steps to help you turn your love for yoga into a sustainable career:
Invest in quality training: To set yourself up for success, choose a comprehensive yoga teacher training programme that provides the knowledge and skills you need to stand out in the yoga world. Our Empower Yoga Teacher Training programmeme is an excellent option that focuses on women’s health and well-being, providing a unique niche for you to specialize in.
Build your brand: To make a living as a yoga teacher, it’s essential to establish your personal brand. Create a website, use social media to share your journey, and network with other yoga teachers and wellness professionals. This will help you attract students who resonate with your unique teaching style and message.
Diversify your income streams: Don’t rely solely on teaching classes at a studio. Offer private lessons, workshops, and online classes to reach a broader audience and create multiple income streams. You might also consider creating and selling yoga-related products, such as clothing, accessories, or digital content.
Connect with your community: Your local community is a goldmine for opportunities. Organize yoga events, partner with local businesses, and collaborate with other wellness professionals to raise your profile and attract new clients.
Never stop learning: Continuing education is crucial for maintaining your passion and staying ahead of the game. Attend workshops, conferences, and online courses to expand your knowledge and skills, and stay informed about the latest trends in the yoga industry.

I’m an inclusive, not scary, totally normal yet heavily qualified yoga instructor and founder of YogaBellies® and the Birth ROCKS Method. I’m trained in self hypnosis and meditation and what I love is helping women (ALL women) enjoy yoga without having to whisper all the time and wear fancy activewear that cost a month’s rent.
I believe Yoga is for everyone.
