Yoga Alliance’s New Designation Brings a Wide Array of Professions to Yoga

July 23, 2015


Get ready to share your knowledge with the yoga community like never before. Yoga Alliance will soon be offering a new designation that creates an avenue for practitioners of all kinds to become a part of our community. The Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP) credential is coming in 2016.

Becoming a YACEP means you are considered an expert in one or more of Yoga Alliance’s Educational Categories. You can offer classes and workshops that qualify as continuing education courses for our over 62,000 RYTs.

Even the most experienced and skillful instructors remain students of yoga well beyond mastery. We’ve created this new designation to bring another level of professional recognition to our community. Benefits of being a YACEP include opportunities to help others deepen their practice, sharing one's knowledge and being listed on the only directory of yoga-centric continuing education providers. With this new designation, medical doctors, scholars and other experts can participate. This supports our mission and strengthens the credibility of our Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT).

Don’t miss this opportunity to be one of the first to sign up for this new designation. Subscribe to our newsletter, follow us on social media and visit for the latest updates.
