I don't know how helpful this reply will be, but I thought I would share my personal experience. I was certified this past July and have not been working full time at teaching yoga. I do, however, believe it is possible to earn a very good living teaching, but I feel you must build your clientele. I have a class on Tuesday evenings that I teach in my home and I recently acquired a class on Wednesday night at a pediatric office. This was the class I had been taking for almost a year and when my teacher could not continue teaching it, I was asked to take over. I had substituted for him on many ocassions as well. The best advice I can give is to put yourself out there. My teacher prefers private clients and has an abundance of them where he makes $75 to $100 per hour. The class I teach is $10 a head and I have 6 students right now. You may want to ask around and put flyers up - elementary schools are a great place as many teachers like to take class after they have finished their day. Word of mouth from your friends is a great way to go. Perhaps they have some friends and you could form a class that way. Maybe the class could meet twice a week instead of just once.
Anyway - just a few ideas. I know Paul has a lot of super ideas for marketing on his website as well. Perhaps you may want to e-mail him directly and get his thoughts.
Best of luck to you!
