Explaining the Value of Yoga Alliance Membership

Many schools don’t know what to discuss with their trainees about the value of registering with Yoga Alliance®. Here are some key topics:

  1. Registration with Yoga Alliance is voluntary. While some employers may require their instructors to hold a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT®) credential, registration with Yoga Alliance is voluntary and not required to teach yoga.
  2. Yoga Alliance members receive more than just a credential. In addition to credentials, membership includes a number of additional benefits:
  • Education through our Online Workshops (free for members)
  • Visibility on our highly visited online Directory of yoga teachers and schools
  • Advocacy for issues important to the yoga community
  • Community engagement through local Community Meet-Ups and social media
  • Perks or special discounts on yoga products and services
