Namaskar Rishi,

This is a great question.

There are many different ways to compensate Yoga teachers, but if you want to stay in business, the best method for studios and teachers is by percentage.

If you split the student tuition 50/50, this encourages your teachers to market their Yoga classes. Good teachers love being paid by percentage, but Yoga teachers who detest promoting their classes will hate the idea.

Your best Yoga teachers will hand out flyers, business cards, and brochures to their friends and everyone they meet. They will talk about the great benefits of attending Yoga classes, and other activities, within your center.

On the other hand, if you pay a flat rate of $60 per class to teachers, how many Yoga teachers will hand out flyers, business cards, and brochures to promote your holistic healing center? How many Yoga teachers will do their best in each class?

The point being: Incentives work very well. Your best Yoga teachers will do well, and your studio will stay in business. When one decides to become a Yoga teacher, promoting classes is part of the job. Otherwise, your holistic healing center has no students and Yoga teachers will soon follow.

OM Shanti,
