Earning a full-time income from yoga & yoga related endeavors is a pretty common goal around here.
In fact, it’s the single most common thing we talk about. Can yoga provide a reasonable income?!
I mean… who doesn’t want to do what you love, while helping people, AND get paid fairly for it.
In order to make this dream a reality, yoga teachers need to create their own website.
But don’t stress it, it’s not as hard as it might sound. In fact, we walk you through the basics in our Beginners Guide to Creating a Yoga Website. It’s free to download.
Quick note: If you haven’t purchased your domain name + hosting yet, we use and recommend Bluehost. They are inexpensive, have good customer service, and come with a free domain name.
Your website is the foundation of your yoga business. There is no replacement.
We recommend yoga teachers to create their website with WordPress. There are other options, but they don’t compare to WordPress. There’s a reason 90% of financially abundant yoga teachers use WordPress.
Once you’ve decided that WordPress is the Content Management System (CMS) you want to use to build your site, next step is choosing a theme.
A theme is needed to help design your website. Think of your theme as how you want your website to look and feel.

We strongly recommend DIVI by Elegant Themes.
It’s a simple yet beautiful design that will catch the attention of your reader quickly.
Not only is DIVI beautiful, but it’s also very functional which makes it a great asset for your business.
DIVI also has options to make creating your website EASY for any type of person… are you a visual learner? Great, DIVI has a visual website builder for you. Would you rather go the traditional method? You can do that too.
Below you will find 6 different health/wellness website that are currently using the DIVI theme on their WordPress site.
