Eight Amazing Benefits Of Teaching Yoga

Every challenging occupation yields some sort of​ satisfaction,​ but the​ fitness professionals industry had an​ amazing 85% job satisfaction rate according to​ an​ Idea Health & Fitness survey.

Job Satisfaction

In the​ same survey,​ 98% of​ those interviewed felt that "My work gives me a​ feeling of​ personal accomplishment." Lack of​ personal satisfaction is​ the​ most frequent reason why people leave a​ job. These statistics make it​ obvious that this is​ an​ extremely harmonious atmosphere to​ work in.

For many of​ us who worked in​ the​ corporate world and shifted into the​ health and fitness industry,​ the​ energy felt in​ a​ health club,​ ashram,​ or​ wellness center is​ similar to​ being on​ vacation.

There's always something to​ do,​ but the​ job itself is​ very gratifying.

Rewards of​ Helping Family,​ Friends,​ Students,​ and Co-workers

Your self esteem improves as​ you find solutions for the​ pain management of​ others,​ ailments,​ fitness,​ stress management,​ positive thinking,​ etc.

The list goes on,​ as​ you continue your own journey of​ self improvement,​ but the​ feeling of​ gratification you get from helping someone find the​ right path,​ is​ beyond words.

You will always remember: That student who reaches their ideal body weight,​ the​ physically impaired student who finds that they,​ too,​ can live a​ better quality life,​ and the​ student who leaves your class without the​ headache or​ backache they came in​ with.

Your Own Health

As a​ practitioner of​ Yoga,​ you have become more aware of​ your daily ups and downs. You monitor your breath,​ posture,​ moods,​ diet,​ and exercise on​ a​ daily basis.

As a​ Yoga teacher,​ you are setting an​ example to​ your students and teaching them to​ live a​ quality life. This path will enable you to​ live longer and live better.

There is​ no Shortage of​ Work

When the​ working world is​ in​ the​ "9 to​ 5" mode,​ you have many opportunities with Corporate Accounts,​ the​ Fitness Industry,​ Senior Centers,​ Medical Centers,​ Referrals,​ etc. This is​ when you to​ teach them,​ with any free time you have.

Once I became totally self-employed,​ there were more daytime off-site Yoga teaching opportunities than I had time for in​ a​ geographic area that has many active Yoga teachers and studios. One of​ my best students,​ who became a​
Yoga teacher through our on-site program,​ inherited an​ area that I could no longer service due to​ time restraints.

The object is​ to​ contact them. This is​ where your post cards come in​ handy,​ if​ you don't have a​ personal referral.

Continuing Education

Yes,​ learning new things keeps your mind stimulated and healthy. You will never tire of​ subjects to​ study,​ explore,​ and investigate. There are so many facets of​ Yoga,​ that one life span,​ is​ just not enough time to​ learn it​ all.

It's not a​ race,​ but it​ is​ a​ journey. You will find friends,​ colleagues,​ and students who are on​ the​ same path. This makes giving,​ receiving,​ and sharing a​ wonderful thing along the​ way.


You will have time to​ stop,​ think,​ breathe,​ relax,​ or​ meditate. You can always fill your plate beyond its limits,​ but you no longer have to.

You can determine whether or​ not you will be stuck in​ traffic during rush hour. You decide what hours you will work and what days you have off. You will come to​ the​ realization that your time is​ your own.


Everyone wants control of​ their own life,​ but very few achieve it. Being in​ business for yourself,​ can help you control your own destiny and that of​ your family.

Sure there are limits to​ what one person can accomplish,​ but it​ is​ better to​ try than to​ have never tried.


No matter what you want,​ if​ you write down your short-term and long-term goals,​ you will make great progress toward them.

You should keep these goals in​ a​ place where you can see them daily and visualize yourself accomplishing your goals. You should be specific about time frames and ethical methods used to​ meet them. You can even use them in​ meditation.

Review your long-term goals at​ least once every season and every year.
Review your short-term goals daily. You will see yourself make rapid success in​ this way.

Lastly,​ goals do not have to​ be material at​ all. For example: You may want to​ start teaching Yoga in​ a​ year,​ and the​ following year,​ get a​ part-time Yoga teaching position. This type of​ goal setting is​ realistic and beneficial to​ mankind.

That is​ the​ key – if​ you choose a​ goal that will benefit others,​ you will surely achieve it.
