There are different types of yoga, and this leads to several types of yoga instructors. In many cities across the United States, you will find yoga studios offering Vinyasa flow, power yoga, Iyengar yoga or Bikram yoga. Within each type of yoga, there are various levels of challenge. Depending on the studio, the type of class, and the level of the class, the instructor's pay will vary. More advanced classes will pay instructors more. Geography also plays a key role. More expensive cities where yoga is more popular, such as New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, may have higher per- class fees. Instructors in these areas will earn more as the classes cost more to attend.
