We Inspire, Innovate, Create…

This is our manifesto. It defines who we are, what we do, and is the bedrock that we are building upon

... is to bring inspiration and innovation to every Yoga Teacher in the world! We do that by creating ground-breaking innovations that have been adopted by other Yoga Organisations across the globe. 

In 2013, we pioneered the idea of adding professional credentials….. to our existing RYT and RYS credentialing system to meet everyone’s needs. In 2014, we introduced the CEAS, or Continuing Education Accredited School designed for experts in the yoga community to set themselves apart and teach CE courses for RYTs or Non-Yoga Persons.

In early 2016, the Yoga Alliance’s Educational Standards Committee (ESC) assembled a diverse range of experts within the yoga industry for a comprehensive review of the existing, outdated yoga teaching standards. The same concept was introduced in 2016 by Yoga Alliance U.S.

In January 2017, after receiving input from member schools, world renowned yoga experts and experienced yoga teachers, we were the First Yoga Alliance in the world to add to its existing credentialing system the RYT and RYS ‘PLUS’ credentials designed to elevate the profession of yoga teachers. Following the revision of our Standards, on September 1st 2017, Yoga Alliance U.S on their web-site announced the “Standard Review Project”.

In April 2018, we created the RYS and RYT YIN designations to provide a professional identity for the thousands of schools and teachers that honour the magic of YIN!
