Calculating RYS Credit Hours

Last Modified: December 31, 2017

Yoga Alliance Standards for each Designation (e.g. RYS 200, RYS 300, RYS 500, RCYS and RPYS) require that each Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) Track has an approved curriculum that meets our Standards.

Contact and Non-Contact hours completed in a single teacher training Track may only apply to that Track. Contact and Non-Contact hours may not be credited or count towards more than one RYS track Designation.
Examples:

  • 20 Contact hours completed in a 200-hour training may not be credited or count towards the required contact or non-contact hours for a 300-hour training.
  • 32 Contact hours completed in a 300-hour training may not be credited or count towards the required contact or non-contact hours for a RCYS or RPYS specialty Designation training.
  • 10 Non-Contact hours completed in a 200-hour training may not be credited or count towards non-contact hours in a 300-hour training.
  • 5 Contact hours completed in a RPYS training may not be credited or count towards contact or non-contact hours in a 300-hour training.
