The globally accepted professional credential for Yoga Teachers.

The Yoga Alliances are the largest Yoga Teachers and Schools Membership organisations in the world with over 100,000 members worldwide between them! Members of Yoga Alliance® Australia/International can work anywhere in the world, including in the USA!

As the popularity of yoga in the world grows each year, so does the need for increased rigor of yoga teacher training programs. To meet the increasing demand for quality yoga training, we have introduced two NEW designations “RYT-250 PLUS” and ERYT-250 PLUS” designed to promote high standards of excellence in yoga education. Members and Non-members of the association are welcome to UPGRADE an existing RYT-200 certification.

Within the Yoga Alliance’s RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) credentialing system there are various registration levels. A Yoga Alliance –International Australia designation instantly establishes your qualifications and credibility and is a universal, portable measure of your capabilities recognised around the world.

A RYT must complete a training with a school (RYS) member of Yoga Alliance–International Australia or a similar recognised organisation. ALL RYTs must keep current with their annual fee and RYT-200/250 PLUS/ 350 Silver, must comply with 40 hours continuing education requirement every year.

A ERYT (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) must demonstrate to have taught a certain number of hours before and/or after graduating from a teacher training.

Once a teacher is registered can apply for the Expert Teacher, a new Designation for individuals who has had a long experience in a particular field or that holds a degree or diploma, or the CEAS, or Continuing Education Accredited School, a designation created for ALL kind of experts in the yoga community to set themselves apart and provide courses, seminars, retreats, workshops accredited worldwide that qualifies as continuing education hours for RYTs or other category of professionals.
