Members of Yoga Alliance gain access to a number of benefits to support their work and daily lives.
By registering with an association that promotes standards for training and practice, you increase your credibility as a yoga teacher or teacher training program. By maintaining your registration on an annual basis, you may use the RYT or RYS designation following your name and on your marketing materials and website. Yoga Alliance registry marks are globally-recognized symbols of standards-based knowledge in the field of teaching yoga.
Yoga Alliance gives the public a place to find quality teachers and schools. When you become a member, you join the most comprehensive directory of yoga teachers and schools in the world. Potential students can search the registry by yoga style, location, name, and/or by your designation. Your enhanced profile on our directory is your opportunity to share with the world your personal teaching style through pictures, a bio, and a listing of trainings you have attended.
