Namaskar B,

You see, I'm not sure because you are in a unique situation. You would be the only yoga studio in town but yoga is fairly new to the mid-west outside of Chicago and Wisconsin. Don Briskin teaches in Illinois, so you might be able to PM him through this forum. As you already know, Illinois can be quite a difference from one area to the next.

I would hate to tell you you could earn $60,000 no problem because I flat out don't know. If you were on the pacific or atlantic coasts it shouldn't be a problem and you would have neighboring towns (within 5 miles) to draw from; especially if you are the only yoga teacher for miles around. You travel so you can clearly see these things.

I still think it would be rewarding to cultivate a yoga following in your area and you would do great, but to replace a $60,000 per year job instantly dsn't seem like a reality. It is possible with time and cultivation. If you teach martial arts, wellness, or exercise classes currently, this could help your yoga practice grow much faster.

Om Shanti,
