oga has exploded in popularity within the United States over the past 20 years. Given a number of studies that indicate the tremendous health benefits of yoga, many people have taken to enjoying this practice on a daily basis. As such, there has been an equal explosion in the number of yoga studios that operate within the United States. The barriers to entry for starting a new yoga studio are extremely low. It should be noted that at the time of this writing there are no known licensure required in order to practice as a yoga instructor. As such, anyone is free to rent a small space where they can hold yoga classes on a daily basis. The gross margins generated from providing these classes is extremely high. Typically, a yoga studio produces gross margins in excess of 95%. The startup costs are also extremely low. A new yoga studio can be developed for as little as $5000. A substantial amount of the money needed to start a yoga studio is primarily based on the type of space being rented. As such, there is a significant amount of competition within this industry.

A yoga studio business plan should have a three-year profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. Most financial institutions are a little bit reluctant to provide large amounts of capital for entrepreneurs that are looking to start new yoga studios. As such, if an individual that is looking to start this type of business needs capital and it may be in their best interest to work with an investor instead. However, once established for two years – most financial institutions will provide a working capital one credit to an established yoga studio business. This is especially true if this facility is large-scale and has a number of employees or independent contractors that work for the business. Within the business plan there should be a substantial analysis done regarding the population, median household income, median family income, percentage of people that enjoy yoga, a competitor analysis, and a thorough examination of all demographics within the local market.

It is extremely important to have a human studio marketing plan as well. Given the intense level of competition within this industry it is important that an entrepreneur understand how they can differentiate their yoga studio from other competitors in the market. Most importantly, a yoga studio is going to need to maintain an expansive online presence so that people can easily find the business when they conduct Internet searches. Beyond a proprietary website, it is also extremely important that expansive presences on social media platforms such as FaceBook, Twitter, Google plus, and Instagram are also maintained so that people can very quickly find the business through these channels as well. Many yoga studios thrive when the owner operator creates a brand name for themselves in order to drive potential customers to the business.

Outside of the business plan and marketing plan, a yoga studio SWOT analysis is usually developed as well. This analysis focuses on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that are common to these types of companies. As it relates to strengths, the gross margins generated from services as it is extremely high. Additionally, once established yoga studios are considered to be highly lucrative businesses. For weaknesses – there is always a significant amount of competition from established studios as well as independent practitioners that are within any given market. Again, it is imperative that a yoga studio develop a marketing plan that effectively differentiates the business from both other studios and independent contractors within the market. For opportunities, the expansion of the different styles a yoga has allowed these businesses to offer a number of different types of classes. This is one of the foremost ways that a studio will expand the revenues during the first three years of operation. Relating to threats, given the low cost associated with attending a yoga class there are really no major threats outside of a drastic economic recession that would impact the way that these companies conduct business.
