YACEP® Eligibility


At this time, only an E-RYT is eligible to become a YACEP. Members with any E-RYT designation are prequalified to become a YACEP.

This is a unique opportunity for members with extensive training and teaching experience to share their knowledge and reach new students through the first and only directory of yoga CE Providers.

What if I’m not an E-RYT yet?

If you’re registered with Yoga Alliance as a RYT you may be able to upgrade.

How do I upgrade my RYT account?

To upgrade from being an RYT to being an E-RYT, you need to have taught at least 1,000 hours since graduating from an RYS, and that graduation must have been at least two years ago.
