Yoga Teacher RYT Requirements

The globally accepted professional credential for Yoga Teachers

In January 2017, a new set of standards called “PLUS” were approved by the Yoga Alliance’s Educational Standards Committee (ESC) and added to the existing scheme. Evaluating and updating existing standards is a recommended practice in all professions, and many of you have asked Yoga Alliance to review our 18-year old standards.

We accept teachers that has yoga training from a non-registered Yoga Alliance-International school if the programme meet our standards.
