January 2017, FIRST Yoga Alliance to implement new Standards for Training Programs and Yoga Professionals
The Yoga industry is constantly evolving, and we believe it’s vital that we continue to monitor our standards for relevance. That is why at Yoga Alliance - International we believe that yoga teachers and training providers deserve a better support system than what you have had in the past.
In January 2017, we made the decision to review and update our old Standards system based on the proliferation of inadequately trained yoga teachers and unscrupulous providers who deliver substandard training. We felt that our previous Standards were out of date, and restrictive in their prescriptive breakdown of course content and hours.
New RYT/RYS Standards “PLUS”
January 2018, FIRST Yoga Alliance to develop and implement Yin Yoga RYT/RYS Professional Credentials
Yin yoga's teaching in the Western world, beginning in the late 1970s, was founded by martial arts expert and Taoist yoga teacher Paulie Zink. Yin yoga is now being taught across North America and in Europe, due in large part to the teaching activities of Yin yoga teachers and developers Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers. While Paul Grilley has done much to publicise and popularise this form of yoga,he did not invent it. However, Paul combined three lines of inquiry in a unique way. This is the hallmark of genius.
New YIN RYT/RYS Professional Credentials
*These are not Standards but rather Professional Credentials which shows the public that RYSs offer Teacher Training in line with the Yin Yoga principles and practice created and developed by the Paul and Suzee’s Grilley: www.paulgrilley.com
