Just trowing my two cents in here in relation to two questions that were made by Seeking Light.
1. How easy are such jobs to get?
Real easy, if you are ambitious and know where to look you can find more jobs than you have time for. The aura level 1 course teaches you where to look and how to look. There are Yoga teachers who work with dance schools, gated communities, day care, senior centers, nursing homes, chiropractic offices, hospitals, churches, temples, schools, martial arts centers, etc., etc, etc.
Problem: Many Yoga teachers don't look there or have no marketing knowledge. They go to the one studio in town and teach as a sub for one night a month. It's not good to slack off after you get your yoga certification.
2. Typically what other qualifications(e.g. CPR, insurance etc.) do you need to get Yoga jobs? Liability insurance and CPR can be had for about $175 a year for a lone teacher who teaches as an independent contractor.
If you are still out there - enjoy your life and pursue your passion. You have the desire, but you hold yourself back or you let others hold you back. Don't give up your dream to become a yoga teacher. It is a healthy life and you can determine your direction by moving toward it. The definition of karma is action or doing. Don't forget: No action = No results.
