Your earnings as a Yoga Instructor in India depends on a whole lot of influencing factors. Chief among them is the age of the instructor (younger is not always better!), fitness levels, experience, communication skills, ambition, confidence, creativity, certifications and of course your enthusiasm and motivation levels. As long as one scores high on all these parameters, a yoga instructor in Indian cities can actually earn a very decent living. The perks are that you are immersed in the world of yoga and at the same time you have time for yourself during the afternoon hours which you can devote to rest, relaxation or your own practice.

- Personal Training at the client’s home
