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.
Each E-RYT may add YACEP by logging in to their online account and clicking the "Add YACEP" button.
If you’re registered with Yoga Alliance as a RYT, you may be able to upgrade.
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.
