As a yoga instructor, your job is to nurture this growth and development in your clients to encourage them to press on. If you are teaching yoga sessions for a host of ailments, take some time to get to know your client and focus on one or two goals at a time.
Did your yoga teacher training program show you how to market private lessons? Chances are you are more comfortable teaching groups, but some of the highest paid yoga instructors in the world do very well with private lessons.
One of my students wants to start to take private Yoga sessions with me. He was working as a gardener at one point, and he got the feeling that his back problem was directly related to a lack of stretching and working with a shovel first thing in the morning. It got to the point that he could not stand up, without pushing his back into position. The stretches did fix it though.
