In January 2017, to elevate the profession of yoga teaching in Australia and the rest of the world, Yoga Alliance – International Australia introduced a set of new Standards: “RYT-250hr PLUS”, “RYT-500hr PLUS”, “ERYT-250hr PLUS”, “ERYT-500hr PLUS and the “EXPERT TEACHER”, a designation designed for ALL kind of experts wishing to provide consultation services or worldwide recognised programs that qualifies as continuing education programs for RYTs or other categories of professionals.

These Standards set across six sections each of equal importance, define the professional requirements of yoga teachers and specialists underpin good teaching practice in the sector.

A Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) credential is earned by yoga teachers whose training and teaching experience meet Yoga Alliance - International Australia’s Standards regardless of whether the training provider (RYS) is registered with us or a similar recognised organisation. All RYTs Silver 200/250/350 hours must keep current with 40 hours annual Continuing Education activities.

RYTs/ERYTs members and non-members of the association and non-yoga individuals with a high level of knowledge, skilsl or qualifications in a specific field of expertise are welcome to apply for “EXPERT TACHER”

Whereas we will continue to accept RYT-200 registration applications, we encourage members and non-members (must sign up) of the association to UPGRADE to the new Standards.
