How much do yoga lessons cost?

Mar 20, 2018

The average cost of a yoga lesson is about £40. However, many yoga teachers offer the option of purchasing a package of yoga lessons at a discounted rate. If you plan on taking multiple yoga lessons you should ask your instructor about this.

Considerations

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

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.

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.

The Length of Your Yoga Lessons

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

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.

Experience

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 regulation 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

There are several different types of yoga that you can choose to sign up for.

Some of the most popular types of yoga include:

  • Bikram (Also known as 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 Bikram yoga which is always taught in a temperature-controlled studio.

Revathy N.Verified Review

A small group of people in the firm I work for decided to take up yoga almost like a New Years resolution. And absolutely thrilled to say that it has been a success. All thanks to Marina, our wonderful and charming instructor. Two months into our Monday sessions and we no longer feel the "Monday blues" because all of us look forward to coming for yoga. She explains with complete clarity what we are supposed to take note of while doing the yoga poses, which we have all found very helpful. She is also inspiring us to push our limits a bit each week, so the classes are always interesting and fresh. And I should also compliment her on her voice, which is as soothing as the music she plays in the background during the sessions. All thanks to her we get a very relaxing start to our week! :-)

Ognen O.Verified Review

Before starting the yoga classes with Sophie, I had never done any yoga in my life. Sophie's approach and teaching were great from day one, especially in introducing the basics, tailoring the lessons further as I got more comfortable, and working on specific areas that I found difficult, like breathing, balance, and flexibility. Lessons are always fun and challenging which is especially important for beginners. She is great at communicating, super friendly, very professional, and she has helped me tremendously to improve my overall energy levels through a very gradual increase in difficulty of the specific exercises. I have been having lessons for around 4 months now, and I am planning to continue as she is definitely an amazing yoga teacher.

Maureen K.

Jai is an experienced and inspiring yoga teacher. Her one to one classes provided me with a great introduction into yoga and encouraged me to leave my comfort zone. Natalia's teaching is great for anyone looking to yoga as a tool to deal with stress, particuarly her breathing exercises which can be used both during yoga and in everyday life. Her teaching has opened my eyes to the benefits of yoga both as a lifestyle practice as well as valuable weekly exercise. Natalia is a true inspiration and i'm so grateful to her for her teachings which not only helped me to get fit again but also to achieve a peaceful and fulfilling spititual awareness which helps when dealing with stressful situations and the business of everyday life.
