How much does Yoga Teacher Training cost
The cost of yoga teacher training varies depending on various factors such as the length of the program, the location, the type of certification offered, and the reputation of the school.
On average, 200-hour yoga teacher training programs can cost between from $2,000 to $4,000, but some more comprehensive programs can cost upwards of $10,000. It’s important to research and compares different options to find the right program that fits your budget and learning needs.
Why do all those factors influence the price of yoga teacher training? As a yoga studio manager, I will try to explain to you how to calculate the selling price of a yoga course and there are many parameters to take into account.
First of all the fixed costs, the studio costs, electricity, internet, rent, maintenance, and upkeep. The yoga equipment, nothing more important than quality yoga equipment that is suitable for the proposed practice and clean. The raw materials for the breakfasts and other meals, if included in the training, same for the accommodation.
The staff, in general, a yoga teacher does not organize its training alone, you will find staff in charge of reservations, marketing, payments, and accompanying the students, that’s me, but also staff for the preparation of breakfast, maintenance, and daily cleaning.
The costs of the above points will not be the same depending on the location, which is why yoga training in India will be cheaper than yoga training in the USA or Europe.
The length of the yoga training, in fact, if you consider joining 200 hours, the cost will be between $2,000 and $4,000, which in terms of hourly rates is not that high, if we take the average price of $3,000 the hourly cost is, therefore, $15 per hour. However, if you want to do a 300h or even a 500h the cost will obviously be higher.
Another important point is teachers. Depending on the experience and reputation, the price of the training varies. It is also necessary to take into account all the work that is done upstream by the teachers. The time spent preparing the manual, the organization of the days, and the workshops offered during the training, but not only.
To become a trainer, each teacher has also invested in different training to offer quality teaching, but this is not always the case. Beware of training with attractive prices, often it is young teachers who follow the training and a manual created by others.
Last but not least, is the certification. You will usually find courses certified by Yoga Alliance International. This guarantees a standard of training, i.e. a program including compulsory subjects, but I will come back to this in a later article. The cost of a Yoga Alliance registered school is about $1,000 for the first year and $400 for subsequent years.
Invest in your Personal Growth
In conclusion, I would like you to realize that the decision to attend a yoga training course is not just a matter of cost, it is an investment in your personal development and growth and in your future if you wish to teach yoga professionally.
