Yoga's many benefits are attracting the large "baby boomer" population, a group with money to spend and increasing leisure time. 

According to data released by Yoga Journal, about 7.5 percent of U.S. adults now practice yoga and one in seven non-practitioners intends to try yoga within the next 12 months. 

Opportunities to teach yoga are abundant.

Yoga is now offered in nearly every gym and health club. As a yoga instructor, you can express your own creative spirit through your classes. You might choose to specialize in any of the following:

  • yoga for physical fitness
  • yoga therapy
  • spiritual yoga
  • prenatal or postnatal yoga
  • yoga for kids
  • yoga for couples
  • corporate yoga
  • yoga for seniors
  • workshops or retreats
  • private yoga lessons
If you start your own yoga business, you will have the freedom to set your hours and decide which days you will teach and which days you will not. You can also be an integral part of your community.
