Yoga Alliance® registers both individual yoga teachers and yoga teacher training programs (schools) who have complied with minimum educational standards established by the organization.

Please review our website at www.yogaalliance.org to locate registered teachers and schools, for information and applications to register with our organization, or for general information about yoga.

Vision

Yoga Alliance® supports yoga teachers and the diversity and integrity of yoga.

Mission

Our mission is to lead the yoga community, set standards, foster integrity, provide resources, and uphold the teachings of yoga. We do not claim to "represent yoga" in the United States, but do represent our registrants and support all yoga teachers, whether or not registered with our organization.

Activities

Yoga Alliance® is a non-profit, tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organization.* We maintain a national Yoga Teachers' Registry to recognize and promote teachers with training that meets our standards. Teachers registered with us are authorized to use the initials "RYT®" (Registered Yoga Teacher) after their name, or the initials "E-RYTSM" (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) if they have significant teaching experience in addition to training. We issue registry marks (logos) for enrolled teachers to use in their resumes, advertising and business endeavors.

Yoga Alliance® also maintains a Registry of Yoga Schools to recognize yoga teacher training programs of at least 200 or 500 hours. Registered schools are authorized to use the initials "RYS®" (Registered Yoga School) after their names, and receive certificates of registration as well as registry marks. Once a school is registered, all graduates of an RYS® are automatically eligible to register with us as RYT®s.

The Registries are advertised and promoted to (a) the general public, (b) organizations that employ yoga teachers (i.e. YMCA's, athletic clubs, Park & Recreation Departments, etc.), and (c) organizations that review yoga teachers' credentials (hospitals, health insurance companies, govern-mental organizations, etc.).

A treasure trove of yoga philosophy!

Our teachers, as well as our daily practice, serve to provide a "reminder" of what we already know in our hearts and souls to be true. The following writings reflect these reminders that we need practice and more practice, and a community that supports us in our path towards enlightenment.
