Even something as seemingly calming as teaching yoga requires some knowledge of business essentials. For those looking to operate yoga classes, you’ll need to get your head around administration, finance and taxation, marketing and even California business insurance.It’s essential to register as a business in order to operate, regardless of whether the classes are in a commercial establishment or your own home. You’ll require some basic admin and finance skills and having a hand on social media can give you a leg up when it comes to your marketing. A small business course can be a great starting point that will give you an introduction to each of these areas.

When it comes to your insurance, you’ll need coverage for your furniture, equipment and other contents, plus the premises if you own it.
