The Business of Yoga


When I started Yoga, it was a health, wellness and spiritual journey. I was connecting to myself and finding an inner sense of happiness that I hadn’t felt prior to finding Yoga. While training to become a Yoga teacher in Bali, Indonesia, this spiritual aspect was heightened even further. And then at the end of the training, our teachers had a one-hour workshop on the business of Yoga. It seemed strange to most of us to look at Yoga, a highly spiritual practice, as a business. But the truth of the matter it is – it is a business, and it can be a very lucrative one at that. The idea of health and wellness has entered our every day lives and does not show any signs of slowing down or stopping.
