Participant Obligations to receive Certification

The Yoga Alliance Academy® takes teacher training very seriously. Though the technical requirements for its training courses are modest, an attitude of genuine desire: to immerse yourself in the intensive face to face training, to commit to being present and participate to the best of your ability in all classes, with eagerness for challenge, and a willingness to venture beyond your comfort zone, are absolutely necessary.

*If you're only interested in certification or a spa-like yoga YTT, these training courses are not for you.

For further information please see: Participant Obligations
