These standards describe Yoga Alliance’s requirements for a RPYS that offers a 50 hours minimum Prenatal Programme to yoga teachers and any non-yoga person.
These courses are aimed at both yoga teachers and non-yoga teachers working in a professional capacity who would like to incorporate yoga into their profession.
Before applying to register your training programme as a RPYS, you may carefully want to consider the following points:
Teacher Training delivery options (intensive, long-term or weekend training).
Learning modes (theory components can be delivered online or correspondence format).
*RPYS Designation can be applied for as a stand-alone product.
The new “Spirit of Yoga Standards” for Prenatal Training Programs must incorporate the Yoga Alliance’s educational categories of study and practice below for a minimum number of designated hour in the presence of a Senior teacher or ERYT.
Techniques, Training and Practice.
Anatomy and Physiology.
Within all Training Courses the following criteria must be met:
As a rule 90% of the Teacher Training total hours MUST be contact hours;
Senior/ERYT (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) MUST teach a minimum of 80% of the course contact hours;
The remaining contact hours that do not require the presence of a Senior or ERYT may be distributed according to the school’s chosen emphasis.
