What is the Next Generation of Yoga Alliance®?

The Next Generation is about living up to the promise of our new mission—to spread the power of yoga, one person at a time. We want to empower our members to join us in carrying out this mission. That’s why we’ve been working to radically transform all aspects of our organization and enhance the value of your membership.

The Next Generation of Yoga Alliance® is just getting started. We hope you’re as excited as we are to watch it take off.

We count on your feedback on things you like and any recommendations for the future. Email us to share your thoughts.

Meet the Next Generation of Yoga Alliance®: 

As part of the Next Generation of Yoga Alliance®, we’re updating policies so they’re most relevant to your life and business. Registered Yoga Schools (RYS®s) and Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®s), here’s what you need to know:

New Online Accounts for RYS®s and RYT®s

Registered Yoga Schools have new online accounts where you can pay your renewal fee online, edit your school profile, add faculty or programs, enter your syllabus, read reviews (from past trainees) and download your Registry Marks.

Registered Yoga Teachers have enhanced online accounts where you can download your Registry Marks and print a current Registry ID card whenever you like!
