We are introducing reviews as an opportunity for your trainees to provide feedback on their experience at your training program(s). Feedback is a key part of our new Social Credentialing, which combines our traditional Standards with the best features of social ratings sites. To register as RYTs, teachers must complete a five-question survey to review the RYS training program they attended. These reviews will provide you an opportunity to grow from feedback; they allow trainees to hold schools accountable for teaching to their curriculum.
The review process was built on three principles:
- No anonymity. Trainees’ names will be visible to you and YA
- Objectivity. Review questions ask about tangible aspects of training
- Constructive feedback. We’ll guide trainees on how to frame comments so they’ll be most useful to you.
You can adjust some online account settings to determine how much of your trainees’ feedback you’d like displayed on your RYS profile page.
All RYS profiles will display an overall school rating. This is a 1- to 5-star rating based on trainees’ answer to the review question: How likely are you to recommend this teacher training program to a friend of fellow yoga teacher?

Each RYS has a unique profile page listed in our online Directory. Your profile page is an excellent marketing tool. Use the page to your advantage by sharing your school’s personality and promote your training through our site, which received more than 1.3 million visits, over half of which were first-time users, in 2014. You can add pictures, links to videos, a bio, locations, trainings and more. You can also link to your profile from your school’s social media platforms, website and blog.
Creating a robust profile can be the difference between a trainee signing up for your training or attending another school. Showcase who you are as a school to attract interested trainees who are enthusiastic about what you have to offer.
