There are five Official Yoga Alliances recognised by the Yoga Community Worldwide:
- Yoga Alliance Australia
- Yoga Alliance International (HQ)
- Yoga Alliance USA
- Yoga Alliance UK
- The Canadian Yoga Alliance
These Organizations are best known for setting recommended Standards across the world for yoga teacher training programs and for maintaining a Registry to support the integrity of a Registered Yoga Teacher or a Registered Yoga School so the public can have confidence in the quality of yoga instruction they receive.
The Alliances have no links or association between them, they are independent Organisations governed by the law of the Country where they were established. Membership from Graduates registered with any of the Alliances listed above cannot be transferred. To register applicants must apply for registration with Yoga Alliance Australia, read more: Worldwide Alliances Membership

WHAT YOGA ALLIANCE AUSTRALIA IS NOT
We are not in any way or claimed to be a Governing Body. We are an Official Yoga Organisation 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.
