New Enhanced Standards for Training Programs “RYS PLUS”
Since 2017 we are considered the world’s leader for the highest standards for yoga teacher training!
In January 2017, Yoga Alliance-International was the FIRST Alliance organisation to review and update its old standards system in response to the proliferation of low quality yoga teacher training and inadequately trained yoga teachers. The RYS 250 PLUS standards and RYT PLUS credential were added to the existing standards system. The enhanced Yoga Alliance-International Standards are intended to improve the quality of teacher training worldwide helping yoga teachers to secure and maintain rewarding and sustainable employment.
On September 1st 2017, the “PLUS” standards were successfully implemented in Italy nationwide by our sister Yoga Alliance Italia in collaboration with the C.S.E.N (Italy’s National Educational Sport Organisation) a Body for Sports Promotion recognized by the Italian National Olympic Committee CONI.
The same day, Yoga Alliance U.S announced across their website: ‘The New Standards Project’. Yoga Alliance U.S have finally had to acknowledge that their standards for teacher training are woefully inadequate. They have succumbed to increasing pressure from both a section of their own members.
The Yoga Alliance International’s new Standards system is to include a school in the RYS (Registered Yoga School) online Registry only when its Yoga Teacher Training curriculum of study meet the Yoga Alliance’s International high set of standards.
