I realized yesterday that there is a component that I missed whilst putting together this chart about the cycle of too-small classes.
And that is: the secrecy surrounding what kind of money yoga teachers make.
While I was in training, I scoured the interwebs and came up with little info. SHOCKINGLY little info.
So let’s crowdsource this bitch. I can speak only about my own experience, so I would LOVE for you to post in the comments the different pay grades and your experiences with getting paid to teach yoga.
There is no benefit to holding this information close to the vest. Here’s my contribution:
- Studio A: $6/per head
- Studio B: $40/class plus $2 per head over 15 students.
- Studio C: $6/ per head
- Studio D: $35/class
- Studio E: (teacher’s discretion) % of donation
