Who is really in it for the money. Heck, I've taught students who were flat broke and I didn't get a penny. Most any yoga instructor understands financial hardship. Plenty of today's yoga teachers are recycled hippies. No offense to Priyah - you little capitalist investor.
Priyah - I bet you invested in GE and Walmart. I know you love to stir the pot, but everyone in a currency based society has to earn a living. The idea that people should spend 3-5-10-15-20 thousand dollars for an intensive yoga teacher training course and then teach for free, for life, is utterly ridiculous, unless you are so wealthy that you don't need money. At a time when all of us could use a little extra in the paycheck, a part-time position teaching yoga is a God send. You can always teach out of your garage if you have to.
Eartheart - Your idea about saving for retirement with part-time income from tuition fees is excellent. But I guess the best place to put it is in the savings account for now. If you get layed off a part-time yoga teaching position could put food on the table too.
Bless you Both,
