Top 6 Reasons to Teach the Yoga Trapeze®
by Yoga Teachers College Founder & Master Trainer, Lucas Rockwood
#1. Deliver Results: At YOGABODY, we love all styles of yoga, but our students tend to be results-oriented and come to us with very clear goals. For students with back pain, poor flexibility, weak core muscles, and poor grip strength (all of which are very common issues), the Yoga Trapeze offers a remarkable way for them to experience transformation.
#2. Share the Benefits of Inversions with Everyone: Inversions have never been more popular in yoga, but most students can’t perform even a simple headstand, so they skip inversion poses altogether and miss out on both the health benefits as well as the fun of going upside down. When taught correctly, people of all ages can experience inversion therapy using the Yoga Trapeze and can eventually build the strength needed to progress to mat-based inverted poses.
#3. Attract Students Easily: Traditional yoga has become so common that it can be difficult to attract the attention of new students. Mat classes are amazing and will always be the core of yoga, but everyone loves variety and something new. The Yoga Trapeze provides a fun and fresh way to introduce people to yoga. It takes the ancient practice of yoga and turns it on its head. You’ll attract new students with little marketing effort and they’ll have yet another great reason to give yoga a try.
#4. Set Your Own Schedule: The ability to set your own schedule is one of the biggest benefits of working as a yoga teacher. As a certified Yoga Trapeze instructor, you can decide to work full-time or part-time, take days off, or take vacations as you please. You’re in charge of your own time.
#5. Travel & Teach Anywhere: If you’re interested in traveling and teaching in different cities or even different countries, yoga teaching is the right choice for you. More and more opportunities arise every day, so there are many options for the adventurous yoga teacher.
#6. Earn a Great Salary: You can make a great hourly wage even as a new teacher. When you’re highly specialized in your teaching, you’ll typically make as much as senior-level teachers of other styles, and your private session rates will be comparable to that of a massage therapist or chiropractor.
