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.
We know that when pain is apparent in the back area the cause can often be due to tightness or strain in other areas of the body. Sometimes tight hamstrings, the neck or shoulders are to blame. Yoga teachers should explain this important concept to the client as they provide them a variety of stretches that focus not only on the back specifically but also on the limbs and core.
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.
