If you want to be in the best shape of your life, make money, and earn a good living, consider becoming a yoga instructor from the comfort of your own home.
It’s easy, safe, and gives you a wholesome opportunity for self-improvement.
Becoming a Yoga Instructor
Of course, you should learn and practice yoga a lot in order to seriously get on track to becoming an instructor. Even after you’ve gained great deal of yoga experience, you still need to spend a lot of time ensuring you hold the qualifications to properly work from home and teach the art.
If you’re not experienced in the practice, start the process by registering for a class that has a good reputation. It’s also important to invest in products that will aid you in becoming a yoga practitioner, such as instructional DVDs and books that will improve your comprehension. Your investment will pay itself back many times over if you are successful in becoming an instructor.
Another option for this is finding a mentor or yogi to train and coach you. The more familiar and aware of yoga’s intricacies you are before you begin professionally practicing, the more likely you’ll be to later build a home business that’s successful. Make sure you practice until you have a stellar handle on the art and are confident you can build a solid reputation as an instructor.
Before you can start to work from home and make money as an instructor, you need to obtain your certification. Of course, the requirements vary depending on the state in which you reside, so you need to make sure you have the right set of regulations.
There are many yoga studios that offer trainer classes, so look for one that’s fully compatible with your schedule, as well as your level of skills and talents. Trainings are generally in group settings, but personal sessions can also be paid for. Many who want their yoga experience to be as close to its roots as possible choose to study independently in India with a spiritual teacher or guide.
After completing the process, you will be able to receive proper certification to professionally practice as an instructor.
Create a Yoga Space
You’ll need to choose a spot in your home that is spacious and allows for minimal distractions. If you don’t have a lot of indoor space, consider converting another room — such as a spare office, bedroom, or even garage — in order to create the perfect yoga space. Providing access to the outdoors will allow you to to expand the area and even increase the serenity of the space when weather conditions are right. For your new yoga space, you may also wish to add wall hangings, spiritual altars, and philosophical materials to create the idyllic environment for yoga both mentally and physically. Adding these elements creates a great ambiance for both relaxing and learning.
To protect yourself and your home business, you will want to ensure that you have dependable liability insurance from day one. This will act as a shield against any potential lawsuits by persons in your tutelage or from other teachers that are under you. Confirm that the coverage is adequately airtight to keep you secured no matter what situation arises. A good insurance company can provide its members with liability insurance at a discounted rate.
Marketing and Publicity
Create flyers for different places and, for maximal promotion, offer the first session for free. Place professional business cards where potential clientele may be, like spiritual stores, candle shops, and fitness centres. Create an accessible and nicely designed website for your clients to use and to refer potential clients. Always stay active in the community online and offline for maximal exposure.
