Hi. I'm really into Yoga and sharing the benefits derived from it with others. My concern is I presently live in the west coast, an area of the country where it is 'hot' and studios/resources/opportunities are abundant. I even have a handful of students waiting for me to teach a class so they can be in it.

However, I plan to move the beginning of next year to a part of the country, Lexington, Kentucky, where Yoga doesn't seem to be as appreciated or practiced, particularly by men. Is there a way to research that and help with planning of my practice, both personally and professionally?

I agree with gator --""In this economy, the best location is in somebody else's location as an independent contractor and free lance yoga teacher.""--

I would teach at someone else place and get to know the area and people before I dumped thousands into a studio.

I also agree with dcalvert KY is not that flourishing with yoga sad but true. Places are what they are and usually people just don't go in and change them.

Sorry about the negativity but I have watched people dump alot of hard work and money into studios in the wrong climates and have them just sit empty until they gave up.

Thank you for the advice! The idea of being an independent contractor is much more attractive for a start up. Right now, I teach at one health club. I teach regular classes and privates at that one location. I split the fees with the health club and I have no worries about making ends meet. During this economy it's better to save for a future studio than lose my shirt going into my own yoga studio right now.
