About Yoga Alliance

What is Yoga Alliance?
Yoga Alliance is the largest non-profit association of over 77,500 yoga schools and teachers devoted to promoting the integrity and diversity of the teaching of yoga. The organisation has its headquarters at Arlington, Virginia. There are also a number of other international Yoga Alliance organisations like Yoga Alliance Australia, Yoga Alliance Europe, Yoga Alliance Singapore and Asia Division, Yoga Alliance UK, etc. Yoga Alliance International is a globally accepted professional credential given to Yoga Schools and Yoga Teachers but is not an official governing body of yoga. However, all Yoga Alliances in the world are official organisations that are dedicated to the education of yoga and set the best standards for the accreditation of yoga teachers and yoga training programs.

What are RYS, RYS 200, RYS 300 and RYS 500 ?
A Registered Yoga School (RYS) is a distinction that is given to yoga schools where yoga teacher training programs meet Yoga Alliance standards. A RYS submits their program syllabus to Yoga Alliance. Once it is verified by the credentialing team and annual fees submitted the yoga school is entitled to use the trademark RYS for the teacher training courses according to the hours of training imparted. Yoga Courses in India, together with Yoga Vedanta is a Registered Yoga School that imparts the 200, 300 and 500 hour yoga teacher training course according to Yoga Alliance standards and so uses the trademark RYS200, RYS300 and RYS 500.

What is the certification Yoga Courses in India provide?
Yoga Courses in India, together with Yoga Vedanta School, provides the certification of attendance to a Yoga Teacher Training Program registered and certified by Yoga Alliance. With this certificate you'll be able to apply for the registration of the RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) title, and after determined hours of teaching you'll be able to apply for your E-RYT (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) title. Your course with Yoga Courses in India does not automatically registers you as a RYT.
