Yoga Teacher (ERYT)

The globally accepted professional credential for Yoga Teachers

In January 2017, a new set of quality standards called “PLUS” were approved and implemented by the Yoga Alliance’s Educational Standards Committee (ESC) and added to the existing scheme.

A Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (ERYT) credential is earned by yoga teachers if they have successfully completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training and have taught a certain number of hours.

We Grandfather Senior Teachers that have been teaching over 10 years full time but do not have formal certification. For Grandfathering, resume & letters of reference is required
