Application Review Policy

Last Updated: December 31, 2017

The role of the Yoga Alliance Standards and Credentialing staff (“staff”) is to help registrants and potential registrants understand the Standards and to assist registrants and applicants in understanding what they need to do to meet and maintain compliance with the Standards. During this process, staff will review or evaluate the quality of the syllabus content.

Staff will review each application to ensure that syllabus session descriptions relate to the indicated Educational Category and meet the Standards. In Addition, staff will review that the sample certificate meets the requirements listed on the application.

Yoga Alliance also relies on Social Credentialing to provide information about the quality of the content taught by a RYS and that approved Track syllabi are being taught in every training program.
