Being a yoga teacher takes skill, knowledge, dedication, and often, perseverance. But you can have all of those things in spades and never quite earn enough money teaching group classes to be financially secure. Not to mention, racing from one studio to the next teaching group classes can be draining—both physically and mentally. One way to avoid this kind of burnout and bolster a your income is to find a few regular private yoga clients—something Jason enjoyed doing for many years. In this episode, Jason shares his best advice for both the business and methodology of teaching yoga privates.

You’ll learn:

  • Why it’s important to diversify the ways that you teach, both for business reasons and to help you avoid burn-out
  • How teaching private yoga sessions can build your skill set as a yoga teacher
  • How to start finding private students and how to price those sessions
  • How to help students set goals and structure sessions around that
  • A few ground rules to put into place before you take on a new private client
