There is more to being a yoga teacher than knowing the asana! Most yoga teachers are self-employed and do most of the work themselves. Just some of the additional skills you may need are:
You need to answer any enquiries that your students send to you. It's up to you how your students contact you, but we recommend not sharing your personal phone number.
Some students go into teaching yoga with wild expectations! Let's touch on the typical life of a yoga teacher.
According to the UK Government, the average salary of yoga teachers is between £18,000 and £25,000 per year. The actual amount will depend on how many classes you teach, your region, your experience, and so much more!
As a yoga teacher, you must work around your student's schedules. There is no clear working pattern, and it will depend on when your classes are.
The learning doesn't stop after your initial training course! The key to success is continuous development. You can attend further training, specialist training, approved development workshops and find a mentor.
