Yoga as a Career

Yoga is an art as well as a science. It is a science, because it offers practical methods for controlling body and mind, thereby making deep meditation possible. And it is an art, for unless it is practised intuitively and sensitively, it will yield partial results.

Yoga takes care of your health as well as your wealth. It is not only a stress buster but is a good career option too. Yoga instructor or yoga teachers get a salary from Rs10000 to Rs15000 per month and increases with experience.
