Promoting Your Credentials
Yoga Alliance standards are a measure of professional education and experience in the yoga teaching community. Whether you are a registered teacher or school, Yoga Alliance’s registry marks are globally-recognized symbols of standards-based knowledge in the field of yoga. Registered teachers and schools are encouraged to promote their credentials in their communities and the marketplace. In this way, you support the professionalism of yoga teaching and actively participate in the effort to ensure that yoga students receive knowledgeable instruction and training.
For the sake of clarity and accuracy, RYSs® and RYTs® should not use the terms “certified,” “accredited,” “approved,” or “licensed,” in reference to the designations awarded by YA. The correct term is “registered.”
Here are a few ways to use the RYT or RYS designations in your marketing materials:
- Include your RYT designation in your bio to let students know you are a registered teacher
- Put the RYT or RYS registry mark on your personal or school website and hyperlink the logo to YA’s website
- Promote your credentials by displaying your designation on business cards, brochures and workshop flyers
- Add the RYT or RYS registry mark or letters to the bottom of your email signature or business card
