Health and Fitness

Before you hire a yoga instructor, you should always speak with a medical professional first. This is especially true if you have any pre-existing medical conditions. They will be able to advise you if there are any exercises or areas of the body you should avoid working out.

Your Goals For Your Yoga Routine

When you know your goals and motivations for practising yoga you'll be off to an excellent start. Some common reasons people practise yoga include improving their flexibility, building strength, reducing stress, and getting fit. There are plenty of different styles of yoga each of which can help you achieve these goals. However, some yoga styles are more suited to specific goals than others.

For example, while power yoga is excellent for fitness, Kundalini is better suited to stress relief. Being aware of your goals can help you can narrow down the best option.

If creating a healthy lifestyle is one of the primary goals you may also wish to consider updating your meals with a nutritionist. With delicious, nutritious meals you'll have all the energy you need to feel your best at a yoga class.

Yoga can also be a great practice to combine with personal training or another fitness routine such as swimming. With so many options to choose from you're sure to stay motivated on your fitness journey.

Group vs. Private Sessions

Do you enjoy socialising with others when you exercise? If so, then a group yoga class is a top choice. Group lessons offer you the opportunity to learn from your classmates as well as your instructor. Not to mention that you might also discover new friendships as well! As well as their social benefits, group yoga lessons are often a cost-effective choice. Keeping in consideration the type of session and where it is taught, they usually cost less than one-on-one lessons.

Group yoga classes are also taught to a variety of different group sizes. So if you prefer a smaller group you should be able to find an instructor who offers small group lessons. On the other hand, private yoga lessons are more expensive because you will be receiving one-on-one training with your instructor.

You can also often find both group and private yoga courses online. The option of taking a yoga class online is a great way to learn yoga at home, whether you prefer a group video yoga class or a virtual one-to-one yoga session with your instructor.

The Length of Your Yoga Session

Most yoga sessions usually take place over the course of an hour. If you opt to sign up for a shorter or longer class this will, in turn, affect the price. Longer sessions reasonably tend to cost more than shorter sessions. The typical hour-long session is ideal for most yoga practices. It allows enough time for you to properly settle into the class and move through a warm-up and cool down.

How Often You Take Yoga Lessons

If you plan to take several yoga lessons, it may be best to opt for a package of lessons. Many instructors offer packages for clients who want to enrol in multiple yoga classes. For instance, a yoga teacher might offer a yoga series which develops your skills from beginner to intermediate. This may then take place over the course of several weeks. In this situation, it would be most cost-effective to purchase these lessons as a package rather than paying for each class individually on a drop-in basis.

Location, Yoga Lessons at a Studio vs. Yoga Lessons Online

The location where your yoga instructor offers their lessons is a key influence on their rates. Localised rental costs, the cost of living and competitor rates can all impact prices. Rates may also be affected by where your yoga teacher holds their lessons. For instances, rates will differ for lessons taught at a studio or gym rather than those taught out of your instructor's home or at a park outdoors.

Yoga instructors who operate out of studios and gyms need to cover rental costs for the space they use. This will then be reflected in the cost of the lessons. In contrast, if your teacher teaches at your home or in a park, studio or gym rental costs won't be as much of a factor. If you love being outdoors, then make sure to inquire if this is an option.

Then there's also the option of yoga classes online. These sessions are offered remotely so that all you need is a good connection to WIFI and a comfortable place for your daily yoga practice. Online yoga can be a great way to improve your poses and learn yoga at home. 

To find the best online yoga instructor look for professionals who specify that they offer online lessons on their Bidvine profile. This is an easy way to compare online yoga instructors, and reviews from past yoga students before you decide to hire. That way you can rest assured you're hiring the best instructor for taking yoga online.


Rates can also fluctuate based on the relative experience level of your instructor. An instructor who has taught yoga for several years will likely have different rates than a new instructor who is seeking to add to their experience.

There are no legal regulatory requirements for yoga instructors in the UK. However, many yoga instructors choose to acquire a membership with The British Wheel of Yoga. The BWY is the main unofficial governing body for yoga instruction in the UK. Instructors who receive their training through BWY undergo a rigorous program to demonstrate their expertise.

The Type of Yoga Workout

There are several different types of yoga that you can choose to sign up for. Some of the most popular types of yoga include: 

  • Hot Yoga 
  • Vinyasa 
  • Power 
  • Ashtanga 
  • Kundalini 
  • Iyengar 

While cost is usually similar among the different types of yoga lessons, sometimes costs do vary so this is something to keep an eye out for. This is especially true if the class can only be conducted in a studio, like hot yoga which is always taught in a temperature-controlled studio. 

Price Comparison Between Popular Types of Local Yoga Classes
Type of YogaAverage Hourly Rate
Private or One-to-One Lessons£50
Vinyasa Flow£55


Learning yoga with an instructor is an excellent way to get fit and switch up your workout routine. Here are some ways which learning yoga can benefit you: 

  • Motivation to further your yoga practice 
  • Improved flexibility 
  • Increased energy from your new yoga routine 
  • Reduced stress
  • A healthier lifestyle! 

So, what are you waiting for, grab your yoga mat, a bottle of water to stay hydrated, and begin your journey with yoga when you hire a yoga instructor today!
