Yoga Alliance (YA) the standards body states – “Continuing Education (CE) Requirements encourage all Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®s) to never stop learning, to embrace a philosophy of being open and to continue improving.”  Every three years starting from the initial date of registration with YA, all RYTs must submit evidence of continuing education.

We offer Continuing Education credits. You can claim CE credits by attending one of our teacher training workshops or advanced training workshops. Pre-registration is required.

If you have been teaching yoga in a particular style – and many different styles are recognized by YA – and wish to register with Yoga Alliance, please discuss this with Heather Greaves.
