Teaching/working part-time on h1b


Recommended Posts



I am sure this question has been answered multiple times but I couldnt find the right answer.

So, I am a full-time employee on H1B working 40 hours for a reputed company.


I recently did a certification for yoga teacher training and am now registered to teach yoga.

Obviously, I don't plan to teach yoga full time but probably a class or two every week in some studios here. 


My question is - Can I do that if I am on h1b?


My hunch was that I can't work for anyone else unless that company files my h1b but recently a couple of my friends told me that I can work as long as I am completing 40 hours with my h1b employer.

Is that valid?
