What does it mean to be a Registered Yoga School?

“A Registered Yoga School is a credential given to yoga teacher trainings that meet Yoga Alliance standards.  A RYS must submit syllabi to Yoga Alliance for each teacher training track to be approved by credentialing staff”

Yoga Alliance is a national credentialing organization for the yoga community, whose goal is to “ensure schools provide adequate training to yoga teachers, enabling them to teach safely and competently”.

How do I become a Registered Yoga Teacher?

The first step is to complete a yoga teacher training through a Registered Yoga School.  Only teachers who complete their yoga training through Registered Yoga Schools may apply for registration and use the RYT credential.  This verifies their training and teaching meets the requirements set forth by Yoga Alliance.  Many yoga studios require yoga teachers to hold this level of credentialing.  In addition, being a RYT may open more doors for you beyond teaching in a studio.  If you desire to become a primary trainer for a Registered Yoga School, the credentialing of RYT is required.
