Pilates Teacher Salary

How much do independently employed Pilates instructors earn?

For the more entrepreneurial individual, opening an independent practice may be a much more lucrative alternative to employment. Some certified Pilates instructors opt to open their own independently run Pilates studios. Some choose to partner with a group of practitioners of other types of movement training, like yoga instructors, to create integrated multi-practice studios.

Whether going totally solo or partnering with other professionals, an individual who withes to become a Pilates instructor will find it worth noting that the take-home income associated with independent practice is always factored against the expense of running a studio business. The overhead that is most worth noting before entering into practice independently is the cost of leased space and insurance. The cost of studio space is largely affected by the location of the studio, but this typically balances since space leased in more upscale neighborhoods of affluent cities can expect to serve a larger clientele that is prepared to pay more for the service. Just like personal trainers, all independent Pilates instructors are required to carry professional liability insurance in the event that a client experiences bodily injury in the course of a session.
