Accredited Correspondence Diploma Courses

Yoga Alliance is an Internationally Recognised Yoga Organisation; affiliated with many other institutions. Accreditation and recognition is an extremely complex issue, given that there are hundreds (if not thousands) of accreditation bodies around the world, and no course is ever going to be accredited or recognised everywhere. The important thing is that you choose education that is going to be meaningful for what you need. Our Diploma Courses are employer recognised, Internationally recognised by our organisation and accredited with the prestigious Complementary Medical Association UK (CMA). Upon successful completion of a Yoga Alliance’s diploma course, graduates will be eligible to register with the CMA UK and appear on our online Directory of Holistic Professionals.
