The article is also aimed at examining the features of temperament, levels of empathy and motivation abilities of trainers. Materials and methods. The study involved 9 yoga instructors aged 27-50 years (5 women and 4 men). Results. By conducting current research it was found out that 45% of respondents with a high level of extraversion and the same number of trainers with a high level of introversion were identified. In addition, ambivert was revealed (10%), which determines a person with tolerance for uncertainty. Conditionally, three equal groups of trainers are established (33.3% each) with the presence of rigidity and plasticity. The first group of coaches was with a high level of rigidity, which indicates the difficulty of restructuring in certain circumstances. The second was characterized by a high level of plasticity. And the third group with an average level of plasticity and rigidity, which indicates the ease of adapting to changeable circumstances, depending on the situation. The absence of coaches with a high level of empathy was proved. Among yoga coaches 22.2% with an average level of empathy were identified; 66.7% with a low level of empathy and 11.1% with a very low level. It is revealed that almost all coaches had motivation for success. Only one yoga instructor did not show the motivational indicators. Conclusions.
