I am a Yoga teacher and during lockdown started Yoga courses Online. Total collection from Yoga courses and other sources is almost crossed 40 lakhs.
I wanted to know are yoga services taxable or totally exempted?
Is GST required for it? If yes, what is maximum turnover?
IIt would be great if any other suggestions I can get for my situation.
