Why NOT to Open a Yoga Studio (if you’re a teacher)

https://www.yogabody.com/private-yoga-quiz – Today, I’m going to explain why NOT to open a yoga studio.

I opened my first studio in 2006, and today, I own three studios, so let me explain… so let me explain what happened.

10 years ago, my advice to ambitious yoga instructors was always to open a studio. Today, studio ownership is usually last on my list of recommendations; and private yoga teaching is number one.

Here’s what’s happened…

In recent years, the yoga market has exploded at the same time as on-demand services like Uber and Airbnb have become household names. The “sharing economy” has changed the game for yoga teachers, and it’s now fast and easy to start teaching in your home, in your students’ homes, outdoors, or rented facilities. What does this mean for you as a teacher? There are thousands of people that are excited and comfortable to hire a private yoga teacher—and it’s happening every day.

Your average studio needs 300 members just to survive, but with a private business, you just need about 10-15 clients—this is fairly easy in most cities. If you’ve never taught or sold private yoga before, you probably need some guidance; and that’s why I created this 21-Day Private Yoga Business Accelerator.

NOTE: please check our up-coming schedule for the next live session. It’s online, so you can join from anywhere, but the live element allows me to personally give you 1-on-1 support.

In case you’re wondering, this program is *not* about online marketing, pay per click, crazy Instagram promos or anything like that. Most yoga teachers I meet just want to earn a comfortable living teaching – not running some online media brand. This program is designed so you spend 90% of your time teaching and 10% on the business.
