While some of these newly employed Yoga instructors may not be experts, they still hope to be a contributing part of the workforce someday.
“I started doing Yoga 4 months ago, and now I teach it,” says Pamela Klinger of Newport Beach, CA. “Sure, it cost me a few thousand dollars to join, and now I get to teach a few classes even though I don’t get paid and I don’t know what I’m doing. The important thing is, I’ve made a lot of friends, and I feel like I’m giving back. Nomaste (sic)”
Klinger has become certified through a series of expensive weekend retreats with other aspiring yoga teachers. Ted Klinger, a hedge fund manager and Pamela’s husband says it’s been a nice change. “It’s costing me a good chunk of change to get her the outfits, equipment, those retreats. But it’s given me a few weekends to golf with my buddies, and I think it’s way less expensive than letting her sit home and buy things on the internet. It makes her feel like she’s doing something.”
