The globally accepted professional credential for Yoga Schools.

We have introduced a NEW designation “RYS-250 PLUS” designed to promote high standards of excellence in yoga education. Non-members of the association are welcome to UPGRADE an existing 200 hours programme.

Within the Yoga Alliance-International Australia RYS credentialing system there are various registration levels. A Yoga School may apply for RYS if offers a pre-definite curriculum that meets or exceeds the Standards set forth by Yoga Alliance –International Australia.

Registration provides worldwide recognition of your Yoga Training Programs. Aspiring yoga teachers can be confident  that they are receiving yoga instructions from a provider who meets our high Standards.

Yoga Alliance-International Australia, when considering an application for registration, must be satisfied that the RYS will observe high Standards for Training Programs. Once a school is registered, the trainees who complete their subsequent trainings are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance – International Australia as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT). 

RYTs/ERYTs members and non-members of the organisation can apply for CEAS, or Continuing Education Accredited School as a stand-alone product.  This designation was created for ALL KIND OF EXPERTS in the yoga community to set themselves apart and provide courses that qualifies as Continuing Education hours for RYTs or other category of professionals.
