Are you struggling to make a sustainable income as a yoga teacher? It’s a common narrative that yoga teachers can’t make a decent living, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m here to tell you that it’s entirely possible to unlock $50k per year – or even more – without compromising your passion or principles.
Just seven years ago, I was where you might be now. Teaching up to 5 classes a day, barely making ends meet with an income of only $10k per year. It was a physically and mentally exhausting period in my life, but it was also the catalyst for a transformative strategy that would change my life and the lives of many other yoga teachers – The 50k Method.
The journey from those days to my first $50k year, and eventually to $20k months, wasn’t a straight road. It involved many trials and errors and the discovery that diversification was the key to a thriving yoga career. I started with drop-in classes, moved on to workshops, retreats, and eventually taught yoga teacher training. This evolution of my offerings, both in-person and online, was pivotal in growing my income. It also allowed me to combine my passion for teaching yoga with my expertise in marketing and business strategy.
What’s more, I achieved all this while living on a picturesque island near Bali, Indonesia, with my 4-year-old son and British husband. I managed to build a lifestyle centred around my yoga career, my values, and my authenticity.
This transformational blueprint that I’ve been mentioning, “The 50k Method“, is essentially about crafting a suite of offers tailored to your students. These could include anything from private classes, group sessions, workshops, and retreats to online courses and more. The crux of the method lies in aligning this suite of offers with your students’ journey and the transformation they seek through yoga.
To better illustrate how “The 50k Method” works, let’s consider a case study – Helena, a dedicated yoga teacher and part-time nurse who found her niche working with women suffering from endometriosis. Struggling to make a sustainable income, we envisioned a suite of offers for Helena that aligned with her passion, her students’ needs, and her income goals. This suite included a self-paced mini-course, a live group course, and a high-end 1:1 program.
With this suite of offers and the right pricing strategy, Helena could make over $50k annually with fewer than 40 students per year while also maintaining her part-time nursing job. This potential income isn’t just for Helena; it can be your reality too. The math shows that with the right pricing and the right offers, making $50k per year as a yoga teacher is not only possible but achievable.
If this case study and my journey resonate with you, I’m thrilled to share that I’m launching a new course: “The 50k Method“. This course offers a detailed roadmap to help you build a successful, sustainable yoga business, just like we envisioned for Helena and hundreds of other yoga teachers. It’s designed to teach you how to find your niche, define what offerings you should create in person or online, and how to price them appropriately.
“The 50k Method” course has the potential to elevate your yoga career. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to transform your passion for yoga into a thriving business.
