How would I go about opening a yoga studio in Youngstown, Ohio & what type of yoga would be popular?

- Advertisement -

I have been teaching for 3 years. I am certified through the yoga alliance to teach Hatha yoga. I am trying to find my niche here. I teach at a number of places & teach different classes to suit my students.
I’ve dreamed of opening my own place, but should I just have a certain style ie: ashtanga or restorative, or keep it diverse? This area is hard to judge. Also is there a place to go to help instructors open there own place? I do get e-mails for the teachers through
What should my budget be?? Should I have a number of instructors, or just me & someone else? Should I have fitness classes to help with costs.
Any suggestions would be great.

Have as many different kinds as possible, that way you’ll find what people like. You can always weed out the kinds of yoga people aren’t into, once you get to know the population’s taste there.

I’d rent studio space instead of opening up my own studio first. This will help build clients and would be less on the rent. I live in LA. The rent for studio space is $20/hr (which is reasonable). Each student gives me about $10-$15/hr. So, if I were to operate at a loss, it wouldn’t be substantial and if I could get enough students, the profit would be quite nice.
If you want to start out and you haven’t gained a good understanding of the area yet, I would suggest getting your feet wet with studio rentals. Put ads in Whole Foods and Cafes and craigslist – places where aspiring yogis and yoginis would go. Use your cellphone number for contact information. Keep the initial costs down while you’re learning.
Hope this helps.


Yoga? In Youngstown? Surely there can’t be a market for that.


I have been looking for a yoga instructor to teach in my studio to be opened soon…this person must be creative and complex in their yoga….for its not an ordinary studio…..please email if interested in more details

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
