Education: Career with Health and Happiness
Yoga is very elegant in today’s modern life. It is getting more importance with every passing day. But it could be a good career option for the youth both boys and girls. Anyone who does it with perfection surely achieves positive results. That is why many foreigners come to India and spend some time in different Ashrams learning perfect postures of yoga from the perfect yogacharyas. There is no country in the world where yoga is not popular and people in large number trying to learn it.
This is the reason a large number of youth in India and abroad are taking yoga as a career. They learn it and then take up as professionally. There are so many institutes or Yogapeeths across the country, which impart perfect training in yoga. There are dozens of yoga studios (the term used in foreign countries for yoga centres) in the country, which are popular at international level. If you take yoga certificate from any of such studios, you can have better yoga career nationally and internationally. There are some studios which provide three months’ certificate course to two years’ diploma course. Anyone taking yoga as career can easily earn from Rs 20,000 to 50,000 per month. If one owns a yoga studio in any metropolitan city of India, then there is no doubt one can earn a few lakh rupees every month.
Now-a-days people in Indian metropolitan cities prefer yoga sessions at their homes. Indian yoga teachers’ demand is increasing day-by-day in overseas countries also. Till 1980, the demand was prominently from America, Canada, Europe and Australia. But after that the demand is huge from China, Japan, Korea, Thailand and Singapore also. In these countries, there are so many yoga studios hiring Indian yoga teachers on monthly basis salary. If you compare their pay scale here in India it is high. Overseas yoga studios start salary from Rs 8,000 to 1.5 lakh per month. These yoga studios are also effective means to spread Indian culture and way of life in those counties. Therefore, it is double service to the nation—earning foreign exchange and also spreading Indian way of life, which is in much demand.
