WHAT YOGA ALLIANCE AUSTRALIA IS NOT
We are not in any way or claimed to be a Governing Body. We are an Official Yoga Organization fully dedicated to yoga outreach and education and best known for setting and maintain recommended Standards for the accreditation of yoga teachers and yoga training programs.
Note: Yoga is currently unregulated anywhere in the world, as such there is NO official Yoga Governing Body anywhere in the world recognised by a government anywhere, and anyone claiming otherwise is misrepresenting themselves
