Yoga Alliance International registers yoga teachers from all traditions and styles and yoga schools whose teacher training programs (200 hour-500 hour or above training courses) meet the standards outlined below.
Yoga Alliance International Registry provides worldwide recognition of teachers knowledge, training and experience. Employers feel confident hiring a yoga professional knowing that your training meets our standards.
