Where can I work as a yoga instructor or teacher?

As a certified Yoga Instructor there are really so many options open to you - the possibilities are nearly inexhaustible.

If you are employed in a yoga studio then you have a structured workday or weekly plan. If you prefer to have more flexibility in your work life, then working free-lance or self-employed is an option, where you can provide private instruction in the form of home visits or in your own studio or facility.

In Yoga Retreats or countryside spas there is a great atmosphere and working environment, since the clients have been looking forward to their stay for a longer time and are prepared to really take in the experience, in contrast to single hour or 1.5 hour sessions sqeezed into their busy daily schedules. Sometimes this requires you to live nearer to the facility during the event, so often wellness and spa establishments include your room and board in their salary packages.

An adventurous option for a yoga instructor is being employed by a cruise company, meaning as you work you get to travel and visit new and interesting places around the world.

In progressive schools and kindergartens there has been recent interest in bringing yoga courses to our youngest populations, so if you have an affinity for working with children, this can be a great option or addition to your career as a yoga instructor.

What do yoga instructors or teachers earn per hour?

On average, employed yoga instructors earn about €20 per hour, in which case one should keep in mind that in most cases working more than 27 hours per week is not manageable. This comes down to about three 90-minute sessions per day, 6 days per week. More weekly sessions are not really feasible in the long term. With regard to these points, an average salary for a yoga instructor is around €2,340 gross per month.

If you choose to work independently, freelance or as self-employed, then you can set your own rates of course. For a group course you could, for example, charge €15 per person, coming to €225 for a session. For a private lesson you can count on about €60 per hour. You must take into account when considering working on a self-employed basis, that you will have overhead for course rooms or facilities, as well as take over any administrative responsibilities.
