Yoga teacher jobs & career guide

Working with people of all ages, yoga teachers instruct on positions or poses, controlled breathing, meditation and visualisation. Yoga teachers may work in any one of a number of different styles, each of which varies in physical intensity and complexity. In the UK the most common are Integral, Ashtanga, Viniyoga and Iyengar.

Students typically study this either as a form of exercise, to increase their overall fitness and flexibility, or else as a means to fight disease and ill-health. Yoga teachers can increase their marketability by specializing in particular areas or with certain populations. For example:

  • Pregnancy
  • Children
  • Teaching in Prisons

All yoga in Britain is under the supervision of the British Wheel of Yoga. They offer training courses and certification, and those looking to expand their repertoire by training other tutors can study for the BWY Diploma Course Tutor qualification. Another option is to train as a yoga therapist.

The demand for qualified instructors in sports and leisure centres, health clubs and community centres is continually growing. Employers include:
  • Local authorities
  • Private health clubs
  • Corporate organisations

Most instructors are self-employed, so annual income will vary widely. However, the typical rate ranges from ?20 to ?60 per session or hour. For more information on training, certification or job opportunities, contact the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) or BWY.
