Continuing Education (CE) Provider Requirements

We are all students of yoga. Regardless of how accomplished you are as a teacher, success should inspire continued learning and professional growth. Our Continuing Education (CE) Requirements encourage all Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®) to be forever learners.

Registered Yoga Teachers must ensure they obtain CE from a qualified provider who meets any of the criteria below:

  1. A YACEP whose membership is current with Yoga Alliance, or
  2. An Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT®) of any level who is currently registered with YA, or
  3. Someone who has a relevant degree, certification or substantial education in the subject that he or she will teach, which must be related to a Yoga Alliance Educational Category, plus a minimum of 500 hours of teaching experience in that subject and/or the equivalent of two years of relevant experience in that subject area. 

*During the CE review process, YA reserves the right to request supporting documentation from RYTs to evidence the qualifications of the CE Provider whose course, seminar or workshop is being submitted for credit towards their CE training hour Requirements.

As a tool for CE Providers and YACEPs, please see our policy about what YACEPs must include on a Continuing Education Certificate of Completion.
