Teaching corporate yoga is a great way to expand your teaching beyond the studios. For many companies, they look to offer yoga in-house as a way to offer a health and wellness service to employees. For employees, it’s a great way to get your yoga into your schedule before you go home. For yoga teachers, it’s a great way to work with people outside of the studio and in many cases, build a bridge for your students as to how yoga can be helpful when you sit at a desk all day.
When I set up corporate yoga contracts, I try to do it such that I’m paid by the company directly. I have heard of arrangements where the teacher is paid by the students. I do not recommend this as this can be challenging to handle in addition to teaching. I also like to keep a separation between the teaching aspect and the business aspect.
This week, I’ve had a few requests for a sample contract you can use with a corporate client. I’ve inserted it here below for your reference.
Also, note: my book, “Stretched: Build Your Yoga Business, Grow Your Teaching Techniques” is on Amazon and chock FULL of business information. You can check it out here (and the sweet reviews ):
